This may not have the potential and power to handle larger companies. But for startups and small businesses, this is a tremendous offering even if it just helps you refine and implement a sales process and system. In my opinion one of the best features is that it more or less forces you to add a new activity as soon as you complete the last task. Which I think is important because it keeps the focus on activity and off getting lucky or hoping the deal closes.
Pros : - Good interface - Drag and drop - Plenty of features to get started - See pipeline graphs and data easily
Cons : - Doesn't have a recurring product estimator, only fixed price deals (would be really helpful to know if a deal is positive ROI based on Lifetime Value etc)

Fresh out of the box, PIPEDRIVE did all the heavy lifting for my new business. For me, its a full service CRM, DEAL and ACTIVITY TRACKING system. Keeps me focused, aware and accountable.
Pros : Immediately accessible. Customizable. Integrates with PandaDoc. One stop shopping: no need for additional software or apps to track my business.
Cons : Customizing column headers and data inside existing fields (IE DETAILS) could be easier. Its not intuitive for me....at all. Its tricky and difficult to get the columns to reflect my business terms. But I spend time with the online tutorials...they help. Would be great to be able to have a 1/2 hour free consultation ONE MONTH after starting to use PipeDrive. And then to be able to have more online sessions w/an actual person, for a fee, if needed. Thank you.
I use this app to help track conversations whilst looking for a new job- helps me remember the last conversations I had, when to make another call or email and keep on top of all the activities that I have done. What is really good about it is that it works seamlessly across devices - phone, iPad, PC, mac. their customer response is also amazing.
Pros : Seamlessly works across devices
Cons : the dashboard could be a bit more flexible and customisable - but that really is just a request rather than a con!

Pipedrive Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe started using Pipedrive CRM for our sales activities in last quarter of 2014. I use Pipedrive to manage activities with prospects and our sales team. Every time we have a new prospect, we add it to Pipedrive and define the right pipeline for them. As we continue working with prospects, we keep changing the stages in pipelines until we close the deal (WON or LOST). We also rely on Pipedrive to get our sales reporting and business development team performance.
Pros : Pipeline and Stages: Pipedrive helps with maintaining the exact status where we are with a prospect. For example, when I start communicating with a prospect, I will put them in a Pipeline named "Unqualified
Cons : When we close a deal by marking "WON or LOST", All the activities regarding that deal, still stay in active mode. But I think the activities either should be closed automatically or I should see a popup with an activity list of that specific deal, SO I can close myself.CSV Import is a great feature. But if Pipedrive can also add a screen like a spreadsheet view, so we can add multiple contact details directly in Pipedrive, that would be helpful. In that case I don't need to first type it into a

Pipedrive Use Cases and Deployment ScopePipedrive has allowed us to take our loosely informal sales process and put a solid cloud based framework to it. Pipedrive reduces the number of e-mails related to sales activities by half. Missed or forgotten follow-up is a thing of the past as Pipedrive does not allow you to let things slip. Using Pipedrive doubles your sales efforts...period.
Pros : Reduce emailAutomate follow upIncrease collaboration
Cons : Better Android and iPhone apps

Pipedrive Use Cases and Deployment ScopeI used Pipedrive in a sales capacity to keep track of key accounts and identify where they were in the sales cycle. In a separate project, my supervisor and I used Pipedrive in conjunction to keep track of all communication (in-person, email, telephone) either of us had with business prospects. This proved an excellent way to keep us both informed of how certain key relationships were developing and helped identify to us both simultaneously where we needed to increase efforts to reach out to potential business partners.
Pros : I love the ability to add email communication directly into a prospect's record in real time. This is especially helpful if you have long sales cycles or multiple people working with a single account.Pipedrive is intuitive and easy to navigate.The ability to identify what a sale is worth and indicate goals etc is great. The visual graphic indicators of where you are versus your goal is extremely helpful.
Cons : Customizing the stages to fit our needs was a little tricky in the beginning but we worked it out.Not everyone uses Pipedrive for "sales" its also a great way just to keep everyone informed about activity on a particular prospect - so maybe a way to take out the "sales" portion would be good
