What CRM System Do You Use In Your IM Business & Recommend?

5 replies
I'm looking for a good CRM system to tie together all of the customer info in my IM business - preferably not one that only charges a year ahead (been burned by too many dud hosting companies on that trick!).

What do you use, like and recommend?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Terry,

    I haven't used many of them, but ACT! is my favorite. I've been using it for years although not for an IM-related business.

    Sage ACT! | CRM, Contact and Customer Relationship Management Software

    Hope this helps.

    All The Very Best,

    After using expensive software - Goldmine - I explored various web-based CRMs.

    Finding the right CRM is like dating - you never know which one you'll resonate with.

    I compared:
    Salesforce.com - too complex.
    Then tried Highrise and Batchbook and Zoho - not right.

    And then I found...Solve360 by norada.com...just right!

    Every day i'll discover a new neat feature and think, 'what a good idea!'.
    Total cost of ownership is reasonable - 3 users is currently under $30 a month.
    Functionality is brilliant. Give Solve360 a try.

    I've only used ACT and Outlook with the Business Contact Manager and ACT gets my vote.

      Forgot desktop software if you have large lists and want advanced capabilities. Zoho with some custom scripts is the way to go.

    I'd have to say Infusionsoft or Premium Web Cart. Infusionsoft is MUCH more expensive and I really like what PWC is doing. They are more affordable and have don't have the $2,000 buy-in.

    PWC has some excellent CRM functions and you can do tagging, if/then stuff, SMS, and lots more. They upgraded their system a few months ago.
