What’s not similar?
The biggest difference…Besides being far easier to use, Fileboard doesn’t force your reps to change what they’re doing; it helps your reps do what they’re currently doing better. Fileboard is an integrated sales platform, catered very well for both Salesforce and non-Salesforce users and provides a patent pending and easy to learn sales process.
If you are a SalesForce user, Fileboard takes good care of you. As a SalesForce certified app, Fileboard is also SalesForce1 enabled, which means that you have access to Fileboard through SalesForce1 which connects all your apps, devices and data in one place.
Due to the two-way SalesForce integration you benefit from when you use Fileboard and SalesForce together, Fileboard also allows you to access 100% of its functionally from the SalesForce interface. You do not have to leave the SalesForce platform to use Fileboard.
Currently none of the above mentioned SalesForce related benefits are provided by ClearSlide. To learn more about Salesforce related differences between Clearslide and Fileboard, download our “ClearSlide vs Fileboard for Salesforce Feature Comparison” whitepaper.
Automated Multi touch Prospecting Campaigns
Automated multi touch prospecting campaigns of Fileboard help your reps to warm up leads before they start reaching out to prospects one by one, saving them valuable time and effort. These campaigns allow reps to send out personalized automated follow up emails based on the behavior of the recipients. Unlike Fileboard ClearSlide only allows reps to send out standard one-off mass email campaigns.
Multitask Outbound Dialer
Fileboard offers a patent pending multitask sales focused dialer, which helps your reps to become more efficient. The dialer allows reps to make calls with one click from within Fileboard. If you are using Salesforce you can make calls with one click directly from within Salesforce as well. The Fileboard multitask outbound dialer integrates seamlessly with the Leads, Accounts, Contacts and Opportunities views from within Salesforce. ClearSlide does not provide an outbound dialer.
Screen Sharing not Java based
According to Cisco’s Annual 2014 security report 91 percent of the security breaches are related to Java. Taking the security of our users into consideration, this is one of the reasons why Fileboard decided to not base its screen sharing functionality upon Java. The screen sharing functionality of ClearSlide is Java based. To learn more about the differences between the screen sharing of Clearslide and Fileboard, download our “ClearSlide vs Fileboard screen sharing” whitepaper.
Fileboard is offering many reporting functionalities that are not offered by ClearSlide. Some examples are the following reports:
- Engagement Score of Deals
- Live Meeting & content touches by Prospect Role
- Email pitch campaigns metrics
- Content and file type used across deal stages
- Live sales call touches by different stages and territories
- Content touches by different stages and territories
Last but not least Fileboard is offering a nice and intuitive user interface. We would agree that taste differs, but many of our users (again including those users who also switched from ClearSlide to its alternative Fileboard) have indicated that they found the user interface of Fileboard nicer and more intuitive than ClearSlide. Which really makes a difference that it takes minimal amount of time for new users to learn the product. Making adoption within your business effortless.
Open API for third party integration
Fileboard’s open API allows you to integrate with any other software systems. ClearSlide does not provide an open API.
