Tech company Pipedrive opens second office in St. Petersburg

Office will be staffed to maintain world-class support to assure that Pipedrive users maximize the value of its #1 user-rated* CRM software

St. Petersburg, FL. —August 23, 2019Pipedrive, the first customer relationship management platform built from the salesperson's point of view, announced that it has officially opened an office in St. Petersburg at 490 First Avenue South.

The office will be staffed with customer support specialists who help assure that customers can maximize the value of Pipedrive in closing more deals and growing revenue faster. The office is the second in the U.S. for Pipedrive.  Its first U.S.office is located in New York City. Outside the U.S., the company has offices in Dublin; Lisbon; London; Prague; and Tallinn and Tartu, Estonia.

Initially, Pipedrive will create 10-12 jobs with significant growth anticipated for 2020 and beyond.

According to Jeff Paradise, Chief Revenue Officer of Pipedrive, “St. Petersburg is a fast-growing, highly-skilled community of tech talent. Plus, it is a vibrant high growth business community evidenced by it being the second leading community in job growth in the state. We are confident that this market is an excellent match for Pipedrive in our continued employee growth to further bolster support for our customers.”

The EDC has been working with Pipedrive since early 2019 to facilitate connections to workforce resources, media contacts and to community leaders, along with providing general information about the area.  Melanie Jackson with Cushman Wakefield led Pipedrive's real estate search  that was a key factor in Pipedrive’s decision to locate in St. Pete.  Sean Kennedy with the Greenhouse and Daniel James Scott with Tampa Bay Tech, were also integral to the success of this project.

Pipedrive is ranked as one of the best places to work in the New York region by USA Today; is one listed as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies according to the Financial Times’ FT1000 list; and recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the best companies for women to work for.

Separately, last month Pipedrive announced that it has added powerful new capabilities to its #1 user-rated CRM software [1] to help salespeople get more qualified leads into the pipeline and take quicker action on the most promising deals. Highlights include: a powerful AI sales assistant that continuously gathers data on deals and sales activities and prompts salespeople to take the “next best” action to move the hottest deals forward; a more flexible user interface that enables salespeople to customize their view of deals in the pipeline to more closely mirror their sales process; and more robust performance dashboards and reporting that let sales managers coordinate the activities of sales teams to close more deals and grow revenue faster. These additions enhance the ease of use that is a hallmark of Pipedrive.

“We are relentlessly focused on salespeople using Pipedrive to leverage our platform to close more deals and grow revenue faster,” Paradise said.

To further support its customers, the company also launched Pipedrive Academy, a web-based online learning portal that provides recorded video courses that help sales professionals improve their selling skills and processes.

Pipedrive offers four plans to ensure the right fit for every customer.  The four plans are:

Essential (formerly Silver): The Essential plan gives sales professionals everything they need to get organized and stay focused on activities that lead to sales success. New capabilities include an AI-powered sales assistant and more pipeline customization options.

Advanced (formerly Gold): The Advanced plan adds new presets that speed up Pipedrive’s workflow automation of routine administrative tasks, which accelerates the process of moving deals to completion.

Professional (formerly Platinum): The Professional plan helps sales managers focus in real time on sales team performance and growing their businesses.

Enterprise (new): The Enterprise plan gives larger organizations all the benefits of Essential, Advanced, and Professional plans as well as additional support and service.
