For easy onboarding, Pipedrive offers a 14-day free trial and Salesforce offers a 30-day free trial. Both platforms offer contact and lead management, customization, reporting, and built-in automation.
Salesforce’s pricing starts out at $25 monthly per user (if billed annually), which is significantly more expensive than Pipedrive’s plans beginning at $14.90 per user, per month (if billed annually). While Salesforce has more advanced features suited for companies and enterprises, it’s more complex and difficult to use compared to its competitor.
When it comes to pipeline management, Pipedrive and Salesforce share some similarities.
Pipedrive lets teams organize deals by sales stage, so they can easily pinpoint their main priorities. Pipelines are also fully customizable and adaptable to your unique sales processes.
Similarly, Salesforce enables the creation of custom sales stages that reflect the unique processes of your business. For the most part, it’s easy to handle most aspects of your business from lead creation to closing opportunities.
Pipedrive and Salesforce both support a large variety of third-party integrations. The main difference is that Salesforce supports more than 3,000 third-party integrations, while Pipedrive only integrates with around 350 apps. If you’re a large organization with teams that require an extensive list of integrations, then Salesforce is the better option.
