When comparing Close and Salesloft, your decisions will likely come down to price. Close and Salesloft both have inside sales-friendly calling features, including Power Dialer, SMS, and call coaching options. However, Salesloft is a far more expensive CRM focused on enterprise users. Close, on the other hand, is far more affordable (with a Professional plan around $95/seat per month).
Salesloft requires additional purchases for crucial team adoption tactics like training and implementation, and also scores lower on third-party sites like GetApp for ease of use.
