Pipedrive was founded in June 2010 by Timo Rein and 4 of his friends. Timo Rein and Dominic Butera became the company's CEOs later on. They have had over 90,000 customers to date and have raised over $90 million from venture capitalists. Pipedrive was also a part of the Angelpad accelerator program where it was the only European startup selected!
Back when they had started, the CRM landscape was filled with software trying to please the top management and not the actual users, i.e the salespeople. Hence they ended up creating a CRM which had its base in activity-based selling resulting in better visualization of sales and leads in different stages and according to individual priorities. They put the needs of the salespeople first and not how it would look to the top management.
Pipedrive CRM is suited best for field sales teams with a consultative sales process. The CRM has a great UI and excellent modern design which organizes sales and leads according to individual priorities. The app can easily go mobile and has flexible rate plans, whether the customer is a small business or a large enterprise.
