Pipeline CRM: A Simple CRM Developed From a Salesperson’s View

September 24, 2020

SLMA-twitter_Chuizan81pdh.pngCRM systems are seldom simple to use, and never created based on a salesperson’s preferences.  During our interview with Ani Chiuzan head of customer marketing at Pipedrive we found a salesperson oriented tool that is both.  Ani discusses the basics of a CRM system that salespeople like and what separates CRM from Sales Lead Management Software.

 We discussed:

  1. What makes a great CRM system?
  2. Why CRM abandoned its original purpose to serve the sales representatives' needs.
  3. What is the difference between CRM and SLMS, or is there a difference?
  4. What salespeople dislike most about CRM systems.
  5. Is Sales Lead Management Software really separated from CRM?
