Plans and Pricing
One of the things that makes TeamWave unique is that it does not charge per user. Essentially, you pay a flat monthly fee for all features and get to provide access to an unlimited number of users. The only differences between the three tiers are the number of contacts, custom roles, company domains, and automatic check-ins as well as the amount of storage. While TeamWave’s pricing model makes it attractive for business with lots of users, the fact that it starts at $39/month makes it expensive for teams of four people or less.
When it comes to ease of use, TeamWave gets top marks. In fact, judging from user reviews, the platform’s usability is what people like most about TeamWave. With that said, numerous users have complained that the system is difficult to learn and that there’s a lack of support or documentation to guide the user during setup.
Mobile apps (iOS and Android)
Reviews for the TeamWave app are mixed, with some users saying that it helps them carry out sales-related activities remotely but others complaining of crashes and bugs.
When you sign your business up with TeamWave, you automatically get the following security features:
- Single sign-on via Google Suite
- Custom user permissions
- Custom visibility setting
- Ability to set contacts, pipelines and tasks to “private”
Customer Service and Support
Unfortunately, TeamWave doesn’t offer 24/7 customer support. If you wish to speak with a member of the TeamWave team, the best way is to open the live chat function. Note that it can take several hours to get a response.
How TeamWave Compares
TeamWave is a solid project management solution with a strong reputation among its users. Its top two selling points are a) the fact it combines project management, sales, and HR in one platform; and b) the flat monthly price, which lets your business scale up users without adding to your costs.
