As a salesperson, you know the sales environment is dynamic. It depends on you rapidly responding to various prospects and stakeholders from initial outreach, to finalising deals. A key hurdle in this process is the typically cumbersome and disjointed process of getting from the handshake to written contract.
This is where automation becomes a game changer. By integrating Pipedrive with Agrello using Zapier, sales teams can harness a streamlined workflow that not only accelerates contract signing but also enhances overall deal management.
This article will discuss how integrating powerful tools can transform your sales process and give an overview of how to connect them.
The Problem with Disconnected Sales Tools
There’s lots of tools you need to run a business and a sales process efficiently. In addition to your CRM, you also probably have marketing software like Hubspot, prospecting tools like Outreach or Apollo, and of course, your contract management system. It can feel like a lot of work flipping back and forth between them all.
Creating sales contracts comes with a lot of manual steps. Manually entering data into sales contracts or contract templates. Then emailing it to your sales manager, or your Chief Revenue Officer for review and approvals. Finally emailing the contract to the prospect, only to have a nail biting wait, constantly checking if they’ve reviewed or signed it. You came into sales to close deals, not deal with contracts!

What Is Zapier?
Zapier is no-code task automation tool that helps you connect over 6,000 tools together. It works by one app having a triggering event, and another app or set of apps automatically doing an action based on the triggering event. For example, getting new leads from Facebook, then automatically adding these leads to a mailing list.
One of the key benefits of using Zapier is that it allows users to set up integrations without hiring any professional help. Traditionally, businesses would need to hire developers or IT professionals to build custom integrations between different tools. This process could be time-consuming, expensive, and require technical expertise.
By leveraging the power of Zapier, sales teams can easily connect Pipedrive with Agrello, without the need for technical assistance. This means that sales professionals themselves can set up the integration and start reaping the benefits right away.
How Zapier Integrations Work
Zapier integrations work on a simple principle: "If this happens, then do that." This conditional logic creates automated tasks known as "Zaps." Each Zap consists of a Trigger (an event in one app) and one or more Actions (the resulting event(s) in another app).
Trigger: A new lead is captured in Facebook Ads.
Action: The lead's information is automatically added to a mailing list in Mailchimp.
