    A CRM with built-in calling, SMS, and email

    Nick PersicoHead of Growth at Close.io · Written
    DISCLAIMER: I work at Close.io. But I've been using it every day for the last > 5 years. It's the only CRM I know of that allows you to email, call, SMS, or update information on a lead from a single window. No additional integrations or add-ons. It just works.

    Base offers a functionality that allows one to quickly craft personalized emails (in bulk) from contact data in one's CRM. (eg. "Hey [first_name], Would love to connect to chat about how {your product} can help [company_name] address {problem you solve}... )

    Deep connection with marketing tools + ability to send and track emails from CRM. Honestly, I guess that Pipedrive is more user-friendly. But it worth to spend some time to learn Hubspot.
