Find what's easiest for you and your organization. If you need to store different file types, google drive might be better. This is strictly for presentations.

I like that I can just send a Clearslide link to a customer and they can see my screenshare, as opposed to the customer having to download WebEx or need a code for a gotomeeting. I also used to store presentations on Clearslide, which was helpful when sending to customers so they didn't have to download the file AND I could track the open-rate.

Likes Least

My colleague has run into some issues with Clearslide not functioning for her, but I have not had any problems.

Recommendations

Use the open-rate tracker, it's great! I also like how you can customize the URL.

The best part of ClearSlide is that it allows me real time information. I know when clients open view and emails and where they click and for how long. I have found that when I call them after viewing the emails they typically have questions about what they are looking at or trying to find something. The real time alerts really help me better service my clients when they are at the computer and seeking information.

Likes Least

I don't like the process for sending emails. I wish I could send them without so many clicks. Click optimization is something that I think can be improved. Clicking 3 or more times to send one email is wasting my time.

Recommendations

I recommend that other people try sending out emails to all their clients and start learning when people are actually reading the information you are sending to them.

no internal notes available during presentation, i think it needs that feature like the f5 on powerpoint. where you can see internal notes the client can't see but you can read to stay on script

it's nearly perfect, except, i'd like to know if they just had an open window in the back or not

The greatest benefit to ClearSlide is the ability to demonstrate "how" your product will directly benefit your client, allowing you to demonstrate how they can utilize it and make it their own.

Likes Least

The newer Java screen share integration can be a little confusing and because there is a delay in switching from the demonstration to a live screen share (dark screen) it creates a minor potential for disconnect between the client and presenter.

Recommendations

I would recommend using it extensively, becoming comfortable with the tool because I don't think there is anything else in the market as efficient and useful.

I think Clearslide provides a pretty interesting mix of capabilities I haven't seen packaged together by other sales enablement vendors.

Likes Least

I think they could improve their video chat functionality, (which I believe is on their roadmap.) I also think there shouldn't be limits on the alerts sales reps get when people engage with their content.

Recommendations

Make sure they help you with the SFDC configuration during onboarding...its easy but must be done exactly right.

I like that you can see when someone opens the documents I send. I also like the fact that I can change the contents of the document after its been sent.

Likes Least

The details of the person viewing your documents can be misleading since I often send the materials to many viewers but I am only able to include one recipient's name. Also if someone downloads the product, it does not tell me. They should also give the sender an option to make the recipient have to provide their name in order to download and then provide that back to the sender as additional feedback.

Recommendations

Look for video/recording and html functionality. A product that will provide more feedback then time spent but actually help get information from the prospects and customers themselves.

The clearslide product is great as a solution to interact with customers. I can use Clearslide to send presentations and view how far my customers have read through them. This allows me to tailor future conversations to cover the material the customers did not read over. This product also allows me to share my screen with mu customers so I can demo products. This also allows me to show the customers exactly what i need them to do or click on.

Likes Least

Sometimes the java part of this product makes it difficult for some customers to install.

Recommendations

Will your customers be able to access the screen share? Are your quotes and presentations a good fit for electronic distribution? Do you have products that will lend themselves to screen sharing demos?

I have my own URL that my clients can pull up on their computer or on their phone. It's also vital for me to see their screens at certain points in the conversation, so it's very beneficial to allow them not only to share their screen, but to have control over the mouse in the "meeting" and run a portion on their end. I love being able to end a pitch because it links to my client's SalesForce account, as well as shows how involved my viewers are during the presentation. It's wonderful both internally and externally, and overall improves my presentations and how I run my meetings. Tracking client engagement is huge. I consider myself spoiled now and will not want my company to switch to any other software.

Likes Least

I have experienced a couple of issues with the meeting timing out. I also have clients struggle to find the "Share Screen" button when I ask them to switch to their screen. They just have difficulty finding where it is -- which could just be oversight. This is still something that takes a bit of time to get them to notice it in the top right corner.

Recommendations

I love the integration to SalesForce, the easy tracking, and the online URL that can be accessed at home, work, or on the go. This makes it worth it for quick and effective communication with our clients.

I really enjoy the functionality of Clearslide and the versatility it allows within. Easy to switch between presentations and, with the most recent update, search through the masses of presentations available.

Likes Least

Would love to have additional functionality in adding select slides from a presentation not presentably on Clearslide. As in - If I have a deck on my hard drive that is 100 slides, and I want to incorporate just 2 of those slides into an existing Clearslide presentation without uploading the entire file.

Recommendations

Having the ability to have one on one interactions with my clients from across the country. I'm able to clearly direct them to the content I'm presenting or reviewing and have direct feedback on decks and company assets.

ClearSlide has been very responsive to making product updates to better meet our needs. Additionally, I love how I am able to track precisely when someone views my emails (and then watch them real-time as they go through each slide).

Likes Least

I wish that the product was better integrated into Outlook and SalesForce. Additionally, I wish that I were able to selectively remove the header in my live pitches... the header makes it difficult to present the pitch on a projector.

Recommendations

Get a trial and use it for a month... if you are serious about managing your business development efforts, you will be likely to sign up for the full license.

I like that it enables one to show the prospect videos and data sheets or slides seamlessly. Once they log on to my "room" I have their undivided attention in that window and can keep their interest up. I also like that it made it very easy to email links to a series of videos.

Likes Least

In the email section where you can send the client/prospect a deck, there was only room for 4 items. I could have done with more.

Recommendations

Try it out, it's very difficult to dislike and much easier to set up & use than say Adobe Connect.

I love how easy Clearslide is to use for the people attending the presentation. They do not need to download anything or go to a tricky link. Instead they are able to easily access my presentation and screen share. I also love how easy it is to log notes in salesforce after the presentation has been completed. It allows our sales team to keep track of everything and stay organized.

Likes Least

I wish the presentations were easier to organize within our company account. Each sales rep has multiple custom decks and they are all in the same view. It would be helpful if we could keep content in folders.

Recommendations

Clearslide is a great tool if you have a sales team that runs a lot of web demos, but especially if you need to create custom decks. it allows us to seamlessly go from a presentation to a screen share and then back again.
