Hey team, big Pipedrive fan here - great product and team behind it. Thought I'd make a post just to build this New Zealand sub-channel and see where everyone is based?

I work for a local manufacturing and HaaS company based in Dunedin! We're a small team of 16 mostly based here in NZ, but also an office in Europe and USA.

    Hi all, we're a privately owned specialty technology provider based in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch. We have a team of about 20 salespeople specialising in Point of Sale (POS), Mobility, Networking, Security Cameras, Cyber Security and Ergonomics. We've been using Pipedrive for about 2 years. We find Pipedrive a vital tool in the sales process and we'd be lost without it! https://www.sektor.co.nz/

    Hi Ian, This is possible as I am looking at similar integration for myself. 

    I will be working on this over the next few weeks so I can share that with you if that helps.

    Hi Ian

    I am in Gisborne but this is how I would approach it as it is the simplest and fastest way to achieve your setup.

    Put up a contract on Upwork.com (or other freelancer sites) and clearly articulate your project requirements. I use Loom to illustrate my requirements as well as written but it is very easy to articulate exactly what you want using Loom. You will find that there will be a large number of people who will respond to the job post and you'll have the opportunity to quietly work your way through and discuss with various applicants until you find the right person.

    This is a global resource of huge expertise and you'll be able to find somebody who will be able to do this for you very simply and for a very small investment. Take your time and select the right individual and be sure that you have articulated exactly what you're looking for and I'm sure you'll have a very good outcome in a very short space of time which will be totally fit for purpose. 

    Depending on your requirements you may find that integrating with monday.com is also a fantastic integration. I use automated workflows which connect from slack, pipe drive, monday.com, and zero accounting. All of this works with incredible efficiency.

    I have had one freelancer who is based in South Africa who is extremely competent and delivers on time and a very high quality of work so if you get stuck let me know.

    Best

    Hugo

    Hi Rachel

     Pipedrive is a great CRM and I’m sure you’ll get great value from it.

     I’m up the road in Gisborne! Yell if you’ve got any queries. Best Hugo 😊

    Hi There, we are based in Mangawhai, NZ. We had all our systems in Greenrope - website, membership site, crm, mailing however had frustrations around their website builder/email template builder so have built our websinte out in Elementor/Wordpress. We are now building our Membership site out in Wordpress. We like what we see with Pipedrive's email builder and CRM but will need to replicate our systems in Pipedrive with integrations with Wordpress. We are under tight timeframes but know what we need. We have some systems in Google Folders, and also Monday.com Any advice appreciated.
