About Pipedrive

Pipedrive is the first CRM platform made for salespeople, by salespeople. It lets you easily find all the information you need before a meeting or call. The software is also packed with automation, integrations, and innovations. Their philosophy is simple – everything is built around activity-based selling. They believe that in sales (and in life) you can’t control results, but you can control the actions that drive deals towards completion.
