What's different in Sales Hub in 2023? 

Before we dive into the innovative AI-driven features that define the new Sales Hub, let's take a moment to reflect on its transformation since its launch in 2017, and the platform's relaunch at INBOUND. While the previous versions were robust, the 2023 edition takes a leap forward. It shifts the focus from sheer quantity to the quality of sales engagements. By introducing a range of AI-powered features, it provides deeper insights, automates mundane tasks, and offers unparalleled personalization capabilities.

Before: The Conventional Approach

HubSpot's Sales Hub has a rich history of supporting sales professionals and businesses. In its earlier iterations, it was primarily perceived as an integral component of HubSpot's CRM, offering a comprehensive, all-in-one solution. This approach was effective for many businesses, but it presented challenges for those who had already committed to alternative CRM systems.

After: A Comprehensive Sales Software

The all-new Sales Hub in 2023 takes a different and more flexible approach. It positions itself as comprehensive sales software and a system of record. This shift allows businesses to harness its powerful features independently or in conjunction with their existing CRM. By embracing this change in positioning, Sales Hub becomes accessible and valuable to a wider spectrum of sales teams, adapting to their unique needs and preferences.
