Have you Heard of this CRM before?

By armstrew ·
I've been looking around for free CRM software and came across one called ConcourseSuite. Its made by a company called Concursive. Does anyone know about this company, are they reliable? They are offering a CRM with 100 free seats! Sounds too good to be true...is there a catch? Let me know if anyone knows or deals with this company at all.

What are you looking to do with it?
Is this for a business?

You will probably find there are certain limitations.
For example, this is in their Terms & Conditions:
Additional Users, Excess Data Storage Fees and Bandwidth

1. The maximum disk storage space provided to you at no additional charge is 500MB of remote disk storage.
2. Each system is allocated at least 1GB of network traffic per month (traffic is calculated on a formula multiplying the number of hits that your site receives by the size of your files).
3. Each system is allowed 100 outbound email messages per day via the Service.
4. You can add more users and/or exceed the above limits by paying standard Services rates. If a site exceeds its maximum allotment of users, file space, traffic, or outbound email messages, the site will become unavailable until suitable financial arrangements have been made for payment of these overages. Concursive Corporation reserves the right to establish or modify its general practices and limits relating to storage of Customer Data.

- Do these specs meet your need? Pay attention to this part: " If a site exceeds its maximum allotment of users, file space, traffic, or outbound email messages, the site will become unavailable until suitable financial arrangements have been made "
If this is for a business, could they live with it "being unavailable" untill they paid the proper fees because some joker sent 200 emails in one day?

This type of stuff generally come "free" because they are hoping to get you in for more. Once you start useing it, you realise you need space, traffic allowance etc..and then you have to pay for it.

All depends on your plans for it really. Shop around, read the small print!

SugarCRM used to have free hosted solutions, not sure if they still do.
