Best CRM: TeamGate vs PipedriveEvery business needs a CRM solution (CRM stands for customer relationship management), today we will be looking into Teamgate vs Pipedrive solutions. Long past are the days of logging things purely with Excel. Even small businesses now can have hundreds of details to keep track of about their customers. Customers, in turn, expect a lot more out of service than previously.Picking the right one out of all the ones available is no easy task. There’s simply so many ones being made every year that the research phase might take an inordinate amount of time. Additionally, it should be entirely unsurprising that each CRM will try to market themselves as the perfect choice.As a result, we’ve decided to release a series of articles comparing CRMs, showing off their features, and picking out the best ones for specific business cases. In this article, we’ll be going through TeamGate vs Pipedrive – two CRMs marketed to small businesses.Data collected on 2021/08/04 Want to go Trough this info with our Expert?All you need to do is:Book A DemoTeamGate vs Pipedrive: Basics Both CRMs purportedly aim to reduce feature bloat and provide a solution that truly delivers what it must without negatively impacting usability. However, Pipedrive still hosts an impressive amount of features, which could cast doubt on its simplicity.Additionally, Pipedrive does not provide any live or online training material, which could greatly increase the learning curve. Teamgate, on the other hand, provides both live and online training that can greatly improve the user experience. Finally, as we will discuss later, a lot of integrations for Pipedrive are reliant on Zapier. This, unfortunately, means that another subscription is required to get the most out of the CRM. Teamgate has a modest list of possible integrations which do not require Zapier and also has a direct integration with Zapier itself, thus allows to mimic the same functionality.All in all, both are tailored towards small-to-medium-sized businesses. While Pipedrive hosts a larger array of features, it’s important to note that they do not provide any training material. For those looking for a CRM that is “fire-and-forget”, Teamgate may be the better option.TeamGate vs Pipedrive: UI / UX Regarding both Teamgate & Pipedrive UI (User Interface) they follow the minimalistic, clean CRM design. It is easy to spot that both platforms have the same shortcuts available. The visual composition is also similar, with the main difference being the menu location. In addition, if you are focusing on efficiency Vs design, Teamgate has focused more on Sales Team Efficiency, thus it highlights the most commonly looked at data by sales representatives – the date of the next meeting, the date of the last interaction, and the number of new lead interactions. Both platforms have easy-to-use filtering options and the ability to easily create and switch between multiple Pipelines. In conclusion, Pipedrive chose a minimal on-screen data approach Vs Temgates’s minimal interaction approach.TeamGate vs Pipedrive: PricingOf course, all pricing begins with the question whether there’s something for free. Luckily, both CRM providers offer free trials for their solutions. As far as we can see, neither Teamgate nor Pipedrive have free versions after the trial expires.Both CRM solution providers follow very similar pricing models. All plans are priced per month per user and unlock a set amount of features. However, Pipedrive limits some features more at earlier plans (e.g. workflow automation) while Teamgate provides no limitations.Additionally, Pipedrive does provide additional add-ons that can be added to any plan. These are priced slightly differently as they are priced per month per company. These add-ons may include features such as a chatbot, live chat, web visitor detection, etc. Teamgate on the other hand are adding extra features and integrations and has some more in the pipeline, with none of them costing extra at the moment.Plans & PricesHowever, if we compare plans side by side, TeamGate does come out as the cheaper option.
