Marketing Automation Software
CRM Dragon Beats Pardot
Pardot provides marketing automation software, and they are owned by Exact Target, who is owned by SalesForce. All of these software systems act independently and have no plans for a tight integration. This means all would have to be purchased separately and integrated by someone (you), a problem that CRM Dragon solves because every CRM Dragon account comes with Intelligent CRM and marketing automation.
CRM + MARKETING AUTOMATION = EASY
We all know that success hinges on more than just trust in the longevity of a software provider. You want to have the confidence that your marketing software can impact your top and bottom line. You want to have a deep understanding of your customers and leads, and you want to have it all accessible right now.
CRM Dragon's email marketing platform has been around since the beginning of email marketing. Our editor is easy to use and stable. Plus, our marketing automation tools integrate with a click. Automating your online marketing efforts will save your business time and money. Customer relationship management, email marketing and eCommerce are a snap when you use CRM Dragon - and are included with every account. With CRM Dragon, you don't need to buy another CRM package.
