Why is Pipeline CRM a Smart Investment?

Pipeline CRM gives you more bang for your buck. You can enjoy all the features at just $49 per user per month


Furthermore, we ensure all fundamental sales features are included even in the Start Plan—not as add-ons. This way, your sales team is fully equipped to yield magnificent results right from the start with ease.

If you want to get intensive support for your sales team, you’ll need to sign up for the Professional Plan ($75 per user/month), which still excludes some vital add-ons.


Additionally, with so many components in the play, navigating Salesforce can be challenging. This can lead to a steep learning curve, short-term adoption, and errors.

I've used other CRMs in the past, and they can be more sophisticated than they need to be. Been using Pipeline [CRM] for 8 years now, and it will continue to be my go-to CRM moving forward with any business I'm a part of.
