This comprehensive article will outline how to two-way sync contacts between Pipedrive and a Global Address List.

Pipedrive is a CRM software built to help businesses better manage their sales process. It’s used by sales teams to organize leads, deals, and contacts, automate repetitive tasks, and streamline their sales pipeline. By creating a visual representation of your sales process, called a pipeline, users can quickly see where leads are in the sales process and which deals are close to signing.

Thanks to this Two-way sync feature, you can: 

  • Two-way sync Pipedrive contacts with a Global Address List
