There are many CRM solutions mentioned on SmallBizCRM. So, to help you fast track your search for the best CRM application for your business, based on customer feedback, click-throughs from visitors and in our opinion too, we have added our new Top Ten CRM Software section.
The following are the most popular CRM software solutions listed on SmallBizCRM.
InfusionSoft - Voted Best Web Based CRM for Small Business, 2009-2012.
InfusionSoft. Highly Recommended. Excellent web based CRM solution for small to medium companies seeking a comprehensive and reliable CRM. Awarded the prestigious 2007 CRM Excellence Award for “Top Small Business Marketing Software”, InfusionCRM tracks all your information in one consolidated CRM system. InfusionCRM provides support for shopping cart and sales transactions, auto-responders, product information, customer details, order history, payment plans, marketing sequences and responses, lead tracking and progression, Skype CRM integration and more. Their impressive offering and satisfied client base did not go unnoticed - Pat Sullivan, former founder and CEO of ACT! and SalesLogix has now joined their Board Of Directors. What also made me sit up and take notice was mails coming to me from the likes of Palo Alto (makers of BusinessPlanPro, the definitive business planning software) and Perry Marshall, the Google Adwords PPC guru, using InfusionCRM.
CapsuleCRM. Highly Recommended.
If you use Google Apps, Gmail, Android, BB or iPhone Smartphones,
CapsuleCRM warrants your closer inspection. Fast, stable, a functional
list of CRM features, a disciplined, easy-to-use and customisable User
Interface (UI) and an on-the-ball development team judiciously bringing
out new features and integration to other apps like Twitter, LinkedIn,
Wufoo website forms, Xero, MailChimp and top small biz accounting
system, KashFlow, it's no surprise CapsuleCRM has a steadily growing base of very happy users.
CapsuleCRM is probably NOT for you if you are after stronger project management CRM, but workflow and pipeline management is well addressed. Their pricing is really great, too. They offer a Free Capsule CRM version with limitations (try this first), or their Professional version competitively priced at only $12 per month.
BEST PROJECT MANAGEMENT CRM
Wrike. Highly Recommended. Winner of numerous awards over the years, Wrike is a refined and inexpensive CRM with strong project management functionality. If your sales processes are more like projects, with long and complex sales cycles, or you require strong remote collaboration, this could well be your best CRM option. Wrike has a modern, refreshingly clean, easy-to-use interface your staff will love, and its flexibility will allow you to bend it more to your liking.
WORKetc. Recommended. If your business requirements have a strong emphasis on Project Management and Billing (typically high-ticket, long & complex sales cycles), WORKetc is a top contender. WORKetc is more a comprehensive business management solution, with strong CRM features. The interface is very intuitive, which is great for user acceptance, and there is tremendous flexibility for customization, enabling WORKetc to be tailored to suit virtually any work environment.
SalesNexus. Highly Recommended. SalesNexus is like ACT! for the web. If you are an ACT! user but are tired of the buggy, resource hungry, newer ACT! version and would like an affordable, web based equivalent, SalesNexus is your answer. SalesNexus Pro is also an inexpensive alternative to better known web CRM's like SalesForce. SalesNexus is a great company, too - we have only heard good reports regarding their service, and their online tutorials and help is impressive.
EMAIL MARKETING CRM
Relenta. Highly recommended. A recent entrant to our Top 10 CRM list, Relenta successfully strikes the right balance between CRM and email marketing and is fast attracting a cult-like following. Affordably priced at $25 per user, Relenta is worth a serious look if you are after a CRM with the right mix of features for an internet marketing operation. Relenta happily combines SalesForce, Aweber, Outlook and Constant Contact apps into one lean yet powerful CRM based on David Allen's famous Getting Things Done (GTD) principle.
EMAIL MARKETING CRM
InTouch CRM. Highly Recommended.
Finalists in 2010 and Winners in the 2012 Software Satisfaction Awards, is a
one-stop CRM and email marketing shop, with functionality like
Auto Responders, Web forms, SMS marketing, Surveys and more. Easy to
use, cost effective and backed up by friendly support, InTouch CRM is a
deserving new addition to our CRM Top 10.
Prophet CRM. Highly recommended. If you use MS Outlook you should have a serious look at Prophet. Voted by PC Magazine (May, '07) as one of their "Four Favorite Small Business Tools", Prophet CRM is a great, easy-to-use, affordable, multi-award-winning Outlook based CRM solution that looks and functions as a part of Outlook (improving user adoption and reducing your training costs substantially), but adds the sales features you want. Prophet CRM is quick and easy to use - you can create an opportunity from an inbound email with one click,
for instance. It happily runs on a peer-to-peer network without the need for MS Exchange Server (but supports it, too). Prophet is excellent value for money, and ideal for the small business with a sales process
that needs management, and is scalable for bigger sales teams, if need be. Avidian, the developers of Prophet CRM, is a great company, too and was named one of the "Best Companies to Work For" by Washington CEO Magazine 2 years running. Prophet version 4.0 was a winner, as is v5.0! Review of Prophet 5.0 to follow soon.. (Previous versions: Prophet v3.0 incorporates important new features. Read our previous review: Prophet
2004 CRM overview ).
CenterBase. Recommended. Centerbase is ideal for companies that want the accessibility of a web based CRM system, but you can host it on your own server if you prefer. This makes a lot of sense from various angles, particularly from a security and performance perspective. CenterBase is a good option if you run on the MS Windows platform. Feature rich and good value for money. Their Center Base CRM Pro version is designed for 10-15 user sites. Pricing is $39.95 per month for the web based subscription model, or $195 per user once-off fee for CenterBase Pro, or $295 per user for their Enterpise version, which includes a MS SQL Server 2000 installation.
