Challenge: Making KPIs more visual & accessible company-wide
Pipedrive is great at capturing data–using their own Pipedrive CRM for managing their sales funnel and Zendesk for collecting customer feedback and tracking customer support ratings. However, with their data locked away in separate systems, it was challenging to deliver critical performance information to guide decision-making to their teams in a timely manner. In this way, Pipedrive wished to become more data-driven where decisions were based on KPIs and tracked data.
Pipedrive started looking for an easy way to display employee and team KPIs on dashboards that could be displayed in a transparent way on TV screens throughout the office...
Solution: Why Plecto?
It was critical that Pipedrive was able to display visual, actionable data from Zendesk and Pipedrive CRM for their sales and support teams. The seamless integrations that Plecto offers between the sales and CS systems made it the perfect solution for Pipedrive.
Here's how Plecto helped Pipedrive achieve the integration, visualization, and transparency they sought to enact:
- Centralized data using one-click integrations
- Plecto real-time dashboards for data visualization
- Plecto instant notifications to celebrate achievements
Live KPI dashboards on TV screens across Pipedrive's office
Upon integrating their existing business systems with Plecto, the teams at Pipedrive were able to get started building dashboards and streaming them to TVs around the office in just a few clicks.
Pipedrive's customer support team is able to stay on top of their tickets with their real-time activity dashboard. Whenever a support tick is submitted or reopened, the whole team is able to see the quantity and status of tickets on the Plecto dashboards displayed on TVs around the office.
Meanwhile, the sales team gets an impeccable live overview of their sales pipeline, so no one is working on outdated data and opportunities are easily identified.
Instant notifications for instant celebrations
Pipedrive also leverages automated notifications that trigger whenever a customer service agent completes a positively-rated support call or a sales rep wins a deal. Openly recognizing accomplishments in this way, boosted employees' engagement and connectivity as they shared knowledge and experiences with each other, bringing departments closer together. The recognition also gives individuals a sense of pride that motivates them to continue their great work, ultimately boosting both individual and team performance.
"If you are a Pipedrive user, I would definitely say go for it. Because Plecto and Pipedrive is indeed a very powerful combination!"

Pipedrive has seen a significant improvement in team motivation by providing employees with a foundation to engage with their colleagues–making performance and achievements the new everyday conversations at the coffee machine. With Plecto dashboards accessible to all and notifications to alert when important milestones are achieved, celebrating success is something that is done company-wide.
