A few months ago I received this message from Andrew Dumont, the cofounder of Stride.
I checked out Stride and my only reaction was “Whoa!”. Stride is a deal-based simple CRM. Not people-based, not lead-based, not contact-based, nor a potpourri of all of them.
We started using Stride to get simple and high level updates to the team and we found ourselves relying on it to efficiently communicate sales progress throughout the company. Both we and the guys at Stride believe in the same fundamental principles about the CRM space: people should work where their customers are and not spend time where they’re not.
Because Ecquire and Stride compliment each other so well, we decided to build an integration.
Integrating Stride for Ecquire
Starting today, all new downloads of Ecquire will have an option to integrate with Stride as their main CRM.
If you are an existing user of Ecquire, you can also add Stride by clicking our “add multiple services” button.
Stride offers a free plan and some very reasonable prices for their paid plans.
Managing Your Sales Pipeline from Anywhere
There is only one thing that is important to Stride: the progression of a deal. Any activity should be directly connected to moving a deal forward.
These activities mostly happen in places like your Gmail inbox or LinkedIn; places outside of your CRM. So with our new integration, you’ll be able to update your deals as they happen, from where ever they happen.
Simply fill out the required information and click create.
A Complete Package
It isn’t enough to have a simple powerful tool. You need your users to actually enter the data in there first. And Stride recognizes that. So on top of our integration, Stride will be including Ecquire as an integral piece in their onboarding process. Going forward, when you sign up for Stride, they will recommend their users to get Ecquire to easily manage their deals.
We hope you enjoy two-click deal management from Stride and Ecquire.
