Pipedrive is arguable the most-known Sales CRM for small businesses (SMBs) & early-stage startups.
Pipedrive was founded in 2010 by Timo Rein, Urmas Purde, Ragnar Sass, Martin Henk, Martin Tajur in Tallinn, Estonia.
Pipedrive has been acquired in 2020 by a private equity firm for more than $1.5 billion. Since then, the evolution of the CRM software has been slow (source G2 reviews of paying customers).
Breakcold is a new type of CRM: a Social Selling CRM.
What does it means? It means that Breakcold combines the powerful features of a traditional sales CRM like Pipedrive (with a sales pipeline) but also has LinkedIn CRM integrations to build relationships faster with prospects.
Breakcold allows you to close deals in 2023, not in 2010.
To close deals with a Sales CRM in 2023, not in 2010, salespeople need to build relationships with prospects on B2B social media like LinkedIn & Twitter.
Breakcold allows you to quickly aggregate the activity of your prospects on social media so you can engage with it easily.
While Pipedrive as established themselves as a leader in the last 10 years in the sales CRM industry. They were less focus on the sales automation part of things compare to Outreach, Salesloft or Reply.io for example.
To send automated cold email sequences, you need to pay an add-on on top of your plan, not with Breakcold.
As Pipedrive's objective is to grow more revenues for his private equity owner firm, their objective will always be to charge you more. But when you're a small business or an early-stage startup, costs can scale quickly and it's vital for your to get them low.
At Breakcold, we don't charge per user, you have unlimited team members. If you have 20 members, you won't pay more. It's really cost efficient while keeping a powerful software (for example Crisp in the live chat software industry).
Pipedrive was founded in 2010 and they had a stellar growth ever since but like every company built during that phase who grew, they are now stuck in what we call the "Innovation Dilemna". It's harder to innovate.
At Breakcold, we're all about innovation and building the software with our users to help you close deals in 2023, not in 2010.
