Get the Redesigned Pipedrive Android App

New Pipedrive Android App

We’ve completely redesigned the Android mobile application, improving the mobile experience with a slick new look and better performance.

As part of the redesign, the navigation bar was overhauled and placed at the bottom of the screen allowing users to switch between different views quickly.

We rebuilt many parts of the app from ground up, resulting in far better app performance. The pipeline view and deal loading are now considerably quicker and smoother.

Finally, we improved the edit function. Instead of having to “save” upon every edit, changes are now automatically saved when you switch between views or hit the back button.

Download or update the app at Google Play Store.


Activate the Rebuilt Smart Email BCC and New Detail Views

Note: This post only applies to users who started using Pipedrive prior December 18th, 2014. If you joined after this date, the Smart Email BCC and new detail views are active on your account by default and there is no need for manual activation.

Late last year, we completely rebuilt the Smart Email BCC feature, as well as our detail views. The new Smart Email BCC feature is more reliable, easier to use, and gives you more control over linking emails to deals. The new detail views are faster, smoother, and give you better information quicker.

What’s changed: Dropbox vs. New Smart Email BCC

Emails instead of Activities

Instead of emails, the old Dropbox system created Activities in Pipedrive and the contents of the email went into Notes. Moreover, there could only be one contact connected to the email, not two, three or more, which often happens with email communication. (more…)

Product Update: Related Organizations, List View Improvements and More

If “the devil is in the details,” our product just got a lot more evil-spirited. This week we’ve released four improvements that make Pipedrive better in small but important ways.


5 Years, 100 People and Lessons Learned

pipedrive 100 cakeThis year Pipedrive turned five years old, and today we crossed the symbolic line of 100 employees. I am incredibly happy to see the idea for Pipedrive coalesce into a group of fantastic individuals that have come together to make our product and service world class. While it’s taken some time to get here, in the grand scheme of things, this is just the beginning of our journey.

So here’s a cheer to all of our 100 employees (and their dogs), to all of our customers and to everyone who has helped us get this far – thank you!

In reaching this milestone, everyone at Pipedrive has had to learn, adapt, rinse and repeat. With that said, it’s a good time for me to reflect and share a few things that we’ve learned over the last five years.

Getting to 100 hasn’t been easy

I’m sure that any founder whose company’s headcount has grown beyond this number can attest that getting to 100 people isn’t easy. Mainly because it’s never simply about finding 100 people to hire. The difficulty lies in finding a 100 talented people who fit with the culture and the team, can continue to add value, and welcome more challenges ahead.


How to Climb the “Yes Tree” in Sales

rock climbing

Imagine rock climbing for a moment, even if you haven’t done it. You’ve picked a route you’re going to follow, or at least you know the destination – the top – even when the route might vary a little from what you first expected. To climb to the top without any protection would be foolish, so you have safety pins (AKA nuts, hexes, and camming devices) that you drive into cracks on your way up. As the pins are the only thing stopping you from dropping to the ground if you were to fall, you make damn sure they’re pinned to the wall properly. All you can do to move forward is to rely on the pins that stay in strong, and take steps.

Now imagine the same process in sales. To reach your destination of a sale – the close – you can’t simply jump to it without going through the necessary steps of your sales process.* Think of these steps as the metal pins you need to drive to the wall – you can’t start climbing towards the next step before the last pin is fastened and strong. To put it another way, if you don’t fall, you have moved on.

*Assuming your product/service is priced high and has a sales cycle that lasts for weeks or months.
