Keen to talk to users of Close CRM, Xero, Intercom and/or HubSpot
Shared by alansp · 41d ago · 14 comments

I've soft launched "GetHarold", a Slack app for unified search (and notifications) across multiple systems. I'd love feedback (general welcome, but specifically from users of one or more of Close CRM, Xero, Intercom and HubSpot would be great).

Website landing page is in the link above. Slack app listing can be found here:

Thanks in advance.

I use Slack for collaboration without connecting any other apps to it. So sadly, this is of no value to me.

In terms of CRMs

- Hubspot for https://skilledup.life - free talent for tech startups
- Capsule CRM for https://techcelerate.ventures and all my other ventures
- Xero for accounts
- Intercom - just to see who has logged in. Very rarely visits.

Appreciate the feedback. Thanks Manoj. To confirm, are you saying that you don't consider Slack a "work" tool, but entirely collaboration outside of work, and this is why you wouldn't connect any apps to it, ie: you'd maybe be concerned that it would open up your data to non-work collaborators?

No. Slack is used for internal collaboration. I just don't want to mess it up by integrating with other apps. Just Slack on it's own is good enough for us.

Ah,OK. So even the possibility of pulling data into chats that was relevant to those chats (eg: if you were discussing a company for skilledup, or an invoice for a customer, wouldn't get over that feeling that adding apps to Slack "messes it up"? Interesting. Thanks.

I love silos!

alansp · 40d ago

lmao

I'm the guy who built https://unifiedvu.app - now runs https://deallite.uk on it.

https://www.uktechnews.info/2021/06/29/causeway-technologies-secures-120-million-growth-equity-from-rothschild-co/ runs their whole business on the framework we use. It's actually theirs.

But the beauty here is that we keep silos as silios, but momentarily unify them. We thought we were clever, but the market was not ready for us.

alansp · 40d ago

Ah, OK. Thought you were just making a joke :)

manojranaweera · 40d ago

nah! dead serious. Need to sleep. 2 am here. Good night.

oh, did you check out https://skilledup.life - free talent for tech startups?
