Marketing Automation Software
Compare RICH CRM with Pardot
Pardot provides a marketing automation solution, and they are owned by Exact Target, who is also owned by Salesforce. All of these software systems act independently and have no plans for a tight integration. This means each piece of the puzzle will have to be purchased separately and integrated by someone (you), a problem that RICH CRM effectively solves with our Complete CRM and marketing automation solution.
CRM + MARKETING AUTOMATION = EASY
We all know that success hinges on more than just trust in the longevity of a software provider. You want to have the confidence that your marketing software can impact your top and bottom line. You want to have a deep understanding of your customers and leads, and you want to have it all accessible, right now.
