1CRM

It is well suited for a small enterprise which is looking at budget as its main constraint, as this is literally the best priced model at $12 a month. Then again it provides much more than the basic CRM functionality, this also is good for any medium enterprises looking to work on its productivity in all the intertwined departments of sales, marketing, order management, project management, and finance.

Technolutions Slate

I am not an end-user but use Slate as an "outsider" since I'm in IT. I use it to verify data coming to and from our SIS PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. That being said, I think it is robust and easy for most to use. It is clearly seen as the "Best in Breed" for CRM/Recruiting/Admissions systems. I am a firm believer in going with such systems. There are strength and power in numbers. Technolutions is rather nimble and responsive with updates and addressing needs.

Cons

1CRM

  • Some random logouts but way less compared to others.
  • Becomes a little cluttered as it has all products, services and order management.
Prashant Choudhary | TrustRadius Reviewer

Technolutions Slate

  • Probably just the aesthetics of layout.
  • The layout and user friendliness of the mobile app.
  • As much as I love their organic marketing strategy, I would love marketing material to share with other schools while I'm on the road. [Youtube demo, clean social media channels, etc]

Alternatives Considered

1CRM

1CRM has the lowest price and is not just a CRM but a bundle of efficient tools in one package that improves the motion of the entire framework in an organization in a fluid and synchronized way. It provides a platform to improve the productivity on each and every step and the power to coalesce several departments to work in an orderly manner.
This helps any small or medium enterprises unleash the power of automation as well as overall management of projects, services and deliverables.

Technolutions Slate

We used Ellucian recruit that is based on Microsoft Dynamics, I must say that Slate is much simpler to use and navigate for everyday user. While Dynamics is very powerful and robust tool it is really hard to navigate and keep track of campaigns and prospects. Slate is simplified version of dynamics and better suited for users who are in higher ed, while dynamics is more for "sales" in enterprise world. Education world is different.
