Here we take a quick look at some alternative CRM platforms for local business in 2021
You might have heard of the ‘big CRM platforms’ such as Salesforce, Adobe, MS Dynamics and others but big isn’t always best – when it comes to small business, you may find that you don’t really need a lot of the extra functionality that the more expensive solutions offer… and price or resourcing could be a limiting factor.
Even if your organisation is just starting out, consumer relationship management (CRM) software should be the hub of your business’s interactions with all of your future and present consumers. CRMs handle contacts, track sales, record activities, send e-mails, make calls, and dozens of other functions. Some go above and beyond and include functions that let you manage jobs, automate processes, build reports, or market your business.
