In 2013, we were working as a “Sales-as-a-Service” business––and no CRM on the market had the right blend of speed, features, and ease we needed. So we built a sales infrastructure like no other in Close. From first contact to won deal, Close empowers your salespeople and lives up to its name.
The fact that it’s a complete unified communication system is the biggest component for us. Email, texting, telephony—I’ve worked for companies where we had to buy options for all of these and then integrate them. This is the #1 reason we think Close is dynamite.
Close isn't Salesforce. It's clear you're a niche player––but that's also exactly what I wanted. I didn't want to use a huge CRM company who's going to push me off to a third-party integrator. I definitely feel like Close fits businesses like us.
A lot of CRMs were too expensive for us to get going quickly as a small business. Close was different. Close has been really great to help us scale to this point. It’s been very easy to use. We can easily manage our sales process.
We help young companies close their first customers faster: all by partnering with the world’s leading accelerators, VC funds, coworking spaces, and founder networks.
