A Big Day for Us: Pipedrive Raises $9 Million in Series A Funding

Today is a huge milestone for Pipedrive. I’m thrilled to announce that we have raised an additional $9 million in Series A funding to help us accelerate our growth.

This investment will help us hire more talented people to join our current family of employees. With their help, we will build more technology, market more broadly and deliver greater service to better serve you – our more than 10,000 customers – and many more small businesses and their salespeople around the world.

This round in funding was led by Bessemer Venture Partners with participation from Paua Ventures. It also includes participation from existing investors including Rembrandt Venture Partners and AngelPad, which as you may recall is where Pipedrive was incubated in 2012. To date, we’ve raised $13.4 million. (more…)

Introducing an Easier Pipedrive and MailChimp Integration

The MailChimp-Pipedrive integration lets you send personalized and well-targeted emails to specific lists of customers from Pipedrive. Simply define your segment criteria in Pipedrive, and click on the MailChimp button at the bottom of the list to export the contacts into MailChimp.

It’s helpful, for example, when you want to send emails to prospects who are based in California and with whom you are in the middle of a high value deal. With only a couple of clicks, you can set the criteria and export the list.   (more…)

New Design for Detail Views

Back in December we announced a new design for detail views in Pipedrive. We’ve now further enhanced the design so if you haven’t done so yet, turn on the new design here.

Why change something that works?

We’re not big fans of changing things just for the sake of it. In this case we feel that the new detail views layout significantly improves the user experience i.e. gets you more useful information in less clicks. And the feedback we’ve gotten so far confirms that we’re on the right path. (more…)

Deprecating HTTP (non-secure) API access from May 11, 2015

It came to our attention recently that certain developers have started to use our REST API over the non-secure HTTP protocol (e.g. not HTTPS). The HTTP access to our REST API was meant for sandboxing and testing purposes only — we have never promoted or encouraged using API endpoints starting with the non-secure http:// protocol.

However, since some integrations and calls do happen on the HTTP protocol without encryption this has become a concern for us. The main reason this approach is not secure and highly discouraged is that it exposes the API tokens (and user credentials, if authorization requests are performed) in transit which in turn could compromise account security.

To address this issue, we are going to drop HTTP (non-secure, e.g. http://) access to our REST API from May 11, 2015 12:00 PM UTC (1 PM in London; 5 AM in San Francisco). This is in the interest of keeping your data secure in Pipedrive. (more…)
