      There are several options on the market if you want to switch from Salesforce CRM to another program, including HubSpot CRM, Zoho CRM, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Before making a choice, it might be a good idea to take into account elements like cost, functionality, and usability. To locate the solution that best suits your demands, it’s usually a good idea to try out a few various possibilities and compare them.

      Google found 2 nice sites advicing about CRM selection for me:
      https://www.findmycrm.com/blog/crm-overview/crm-evaluation-criteria-what-to-include-in-a-checklist
      https://www.discovercrm.com/crm-selection-guide-and-checklist.html

      Being “amazing” indeed is not a good criterium for your business.

      When choosing CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software, there are several factors to consider, including:

      Business needs: Determine your business needs and what you want the CRM to accomplish. Are you looking to improve customer engagement, increase sales, or streamline workflows?

      Features and functionality: Look for a CRM that has the features and functionality that will meet your business needs. Some features to consider include contact management, lead management, sales forecasting, reporting, and analytics.

      Scalability: Choose a CRM that can grow with your business. Consider the number of users and the amount of data you will be managing in the future.

      Integration: Consider how well the CRM integrates with your existing tools and systems. Look for a CRM that can integrate with your marketing automation software, email marketing software, and other business tools.

      Ease of use: Look for a CRM that is easy to use and has an intuitive interface. A complex CRM can lead to low adoption rates and user frustration.

      Security and compliance: Choose a CRM that prioritizes security and compliance. Look for a CRM that complies with regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA.

      Cost: Determine your budget and look for a CRM that meets your business needs within your budget.

      By considering these factors, you can choose the right CRM software for your business needs.

      Factors to consider before choosing a CRM software

      Absolutely! Choosing a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software is a key decision for any business. Here are some important factors to consider:

      Business Needs: First and foremost, consider what your business needs. Are you a small company that just needs to keep track of customer contacts and emails, or are you a larger enterprise that requires a comprehensive suite of tools for sales, marketing, and customer service?

      Ease of Use: If a CRM is too complicated, your team might not use it effectively. So, look for something user-friendly, intuitive, and easy to navigate.

      Customizability: Your CRM should be able to grow and adapt with your business. The ability to customize fields, workflows, and reports is essential.

      Integration: The CRM should be able to seamlessly integrate with other software that your business uses, like your email system, social media platforms, marketing automation tools, or customer service software.

      Mobility: Nowadays, sales teams often work on-the-go. Having a CRM with a strong mobile application that allows access to important customer data anytime, anywhere can be a big advantage.

      Cost: You’ll want to consider the pricing and ensure it fits within your budget. Don’t forget to consider both upfront and ongoing costs.

      Vendor Support & Community: Finally, consider the reputation of the vendor and the support they offer. A vendor with a track record of regular updates and strong customer support can make a big difference.

      Remember, the best CRM is the one that fits your business needs and goals. So take your time, do your research, and don’t be afraid to take a few for a test drive!
