Another HubSpot tool that allows you to work from your Inbox is called Sidekick. This tool lets you track contact information in-depth, such as professional history and email history. It also lets you schedule emails and see who reads your messages. Sidekick for Business provides additional features, such as email templates, reports and document tracking.
