Our vision is to help teams around the world close more deals. Make it easy to understand what your sales pipeline looks like, help find the right deals to focus on and require minimal amount of 'sales admin'.
On the other hand, our customers have processes other than just direct sales. They issue invoices for closed deals, do marketing campaigns to generate leads, manage projects and do a myriad of other things. We have no plans to add all such functionality to Pipedrive, but we want to make it very easy for Pipedrive to talk to other software.
If you have software development resources, you can make Pipedrive do pretty much anything via our API. If not, you'll love Zapier. Zapier is a platform that can make connections between the different business software you use, without requiring any programming skills. For example you can use Zapier to:
* Create a new deal in the 'New leads' stage in Pipedrive when someone subscribes to your newsletter or fills a Wufoo form on your website
* Create an invoice in Freshbooks if a deal is marked 'Won' in Pipedrive.
* Send a text message to sales manager via Twilio if a deal is moved to stage 'Offer made' in Pipedrive
* Start a new task in project management software (Asana, Trello, Pivotal Tracker, etc.) when a deal is marked 'Won' in Pipedrive.
Zapier currently supports connections between 164 different pieces of software and the possibilities are almost endless. It is free to use if the number of tasks needed is small, and subscriptions start at $15 per month.
Zapier offers a free trial and they've made a 25% off first 3 months offer for the first 10 Pipedrive customers, on a first come first served basis. Check out how Zapier can work with your Pipedrive account, and use the promo code pipedrive_exclusive if you'd like to use the special offer.
