Comparison of CRM Software


CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software used to be dominated by large enterprise software companies. Now we have lots of fantastic CRM software alternatives especially in the Software-as-a-Service scene.

The 800-pound gorilla is Salesforce – a more “complete” package, expensive and more likely to be used only by larger organizations. But there are great alternatives to Salesforce, one is SugarCRM. Then you have a number of other alternative approaches to CRM, ranging from Highrise, a super-simple CRM, to more recent startups such as

    I find RealtyShine CRM very nice. We’ve been using Zoho previously and it’s really great in many regards but we wanted to have something tailored specifically for real estate to make things easier. Then we came across Realtyshine and works great for us as there are some very good features, like automatic property matching, automatic property proposal creation, built-in CMS and website if you want to run a site via CRM, easy to manage contact, property, transaction etc databases.

    Hey Rob
    nice list…

    why would you leave off Nutshell CRM?
    they may be unknown in your circles but, they are on par with the best in your review.

    Rob, I like the spreadsheet you’ve laid out. But I recently started using PayPanther, and I think it’s worthy of being added to the list. They are a free cloud-based software that offers CRM, invoicing, time tracking, project management, etc. I find their UI to be highly intuitive and easy to use.

    Great start at your spreadsheet. You might want to look at, which does a pretty good job at comparing most of these companies.

    I also added a new column for integrated predictive analytics. To my knowledge, GreenRope’s Intelligent CRM is the only CRM on the market that does this out of the box.

    There are other features you may want to add, depending on your desire to make an all-inclusive spreadsheet of capabilities. I’d look at integrated marketing automation, opportunity tracking, demographic and activity based lead scoring, ticketing systems, and knowledge management.

    Hope that helps!
