Why Software Demos Make all the Difference
Video chatting with someone you’ve never met can be a bit daunting at first. So signing up for a demo to learn more about a specific tool might not always be the obvious first choice.
Most applications also offer a free trial and have a great customer success team emailing you to help with any questions or concerns you may have. So why consider a demo in the first place? Here’s two important reasons why:
Find your match 💘
These days you have a lot of different types of software out there, so finding the right software for you and your team is like a matchmaking process.
Even though a trial period is great for testing the product out yourself, it’s crucial however, to find out if it the tool could be a good fit within your company and has all (or most of) the features you are looking for.
By booking a demo, you can receive all the necessary information in no time. And by explaining your specific workflow “face-to-face”, the salesperson can tell you within a few minutes if there’s a perfect match in the making, or …not so much.
💡Quick tip: Identify & Communicate Your Needs. It’s good to prepare a list of requirements and questions before the start of the demo. In this way, you can make most of your one-on-time.
Get a head start 🏁
Like I said, free trials are great: you get to learn by doing and discover new features every day. But let’s face it: we all feel like the days are growing shorter and we just don’t have that extra time anymore where we can focus on completing a full trial.
During a demo, once you’ve explained what you expect from this new tool and what goals you try to achieve, only the features that are important to YOU are discussed. Customer success and salespersons want to help you out as much as possible. So they won’t go over features that you’d probably won’t use or that would have no benefit for you and your team. Instead, they’ll show you what it could do for you, which features you should take another look at during your trial, and where to find them.

This basically means you’ll start the trial with a big head start:
- You now know where all the necessary features are and how to work with them.

- You’ll now have someone who you can reach out to and who will know your use case in and out, so you don’t need to explain it again and again.
- You’ll save a lot of time…
The bottom line is: save time by making time. Schedule a quick demo and learn first and foremost if this product is even worth your time and will help you to achieve your goals.
