Flexibility and customization that puts you in the driver’s seat

Some CRM platforms are rigid systems, useful for a certain way of selling. The best CRMs give you adaptable pipelines, stages and fields.

Pipedrive’s customizable CRM fits your specific sales processes and workflows, allowing you to track and manage sales opportunities in a way that makes sense for your organization.

Automation features

Save time and focus on what matters most with automated workflows

Repetitive tasks take up valuable time and get in the way of focusing on more strategic and revenue-generating activities. Team members need a CRM solution that automates jobs and frees up their schedules.

Use Pipedrive’s Automation features to create follow-up tasks, send personalized emails or update contact information. You can also take advantage of our pre-made workflow automation templates to ease your team’s workload.
