Imagine having the power to enhance your HubSpot portal, making it a versatile hub for all your business needs. What functionalities would you add to your HubSpot portal if you could wave a magic wand?

PocketKnife HubSpot add on

At leadstreet, after a decade of working closely with HubSpot clients, we have compiled a wish list of some extra things they want to do on the platform; we recognized the need for a single app with multiple functionalities beyond the standard offerings. This realization led to PocketKnife, HubSpot's ultimate add-on designed to supercharge your portal and streamline your business processes. 

But rather than a wand, we’ve built a multi-function tool you can pop out to expand what you can do on the platform. And instead of a nail filer, pliers, and a fish scaler, you can use tools to clone deals on HubSpot, have an efficient file manager, and more.

The PocketKnife Story

With the pandemic and global disruptions, we've all seen the importance of being efficient, adapting, and improving digital systems and processes. With our ten years of HubSpot experience, we understand our client's challenges and pain points in managing their HubSpot data and processes. Small things can make a big impact on HubSpot. Obvious tasks like clone deals, recurring tasks, file managers, and even rotating records to owners.

The PocketKnife Story

PocketKnife emerged as a way to address these challenges. It empowers you to optimize your workflows, making your HubSpot portal an even more powerful tool that adapts to your unique requirements.

Why PocketKnife?

Businesses often find themselves DIY-ing or making do to bridge the gaps left by standard HubSpot functionalities. Our interactions with SMBs highlighted a few common issues:

  • Limited functionalities in HubSpot: Many clients found they had some requirements beyond HubSpot's standard offerings. As their businesses grew, they needed specialized tools to cater to their growing needs. These functionalities were not readily available within the HubSpot ecosystem, prompting them to seek external solutions.
  • Functionalities are available when you purchase Pro or Enterprise licenses: While HubSpot offers advanced functionalities, they are often accessible only through premium licenses. For small and medium-sized businesses, in particular, this means it's more challenging to leverage the potential of HubSpot fully.

What makes PocketKnife the preferred choice for businesses seeking enhanced functionalities for their HubSpot portals?

  • User-friendly experience: PocketKnife stands out for its intuitive design and user-friendly interface. Unlike complex solutions that require custom coding or the involvement of developers, PocketKnife simplifies the entire process. Its seamless integration into HubSpot ensures businesses can harness its power without requiring intricate technical knowledge or specialized expertise.
  • No custom coding, no developer dependency: PocketKnife offers accessibility. It democratizes advanced functionalities, making them available to a broader audience. Businesses can now expand their capabilities without custom coding or developer dependence constraints. This accessibility empowers marketers to take the reins, unleashing the full potential of HubSpot without the complexities associated with traditional software integration.
  • Empowering marketing teams: We crafted PocketKnife to empower marketing and sales teams with a fundamental understanding of HubSpot's core features. By seamlessly integrating with HubSpot, it augments the toolkit available to marketers. With PocketKnife, you can easily move past the limitations of basic functionalities, explore new horizons, and execute sophisticated marketing strategies. 

In essence, PocketKnife not only fills the functionality gaps within HubSpot but also does so in a way that is accessible, affordable, and empowering. It puts the control back in the hands of businesses, allowing them to adapt, innovate, and thrive in the competitive digital landscape.
