Act! CRM

Swiftpage [ACT!] is
robust in nature and a manageable solution available for use as a powerful
marketing tool. It is compiled of a lot of exceptional services with the best
contact and customer management tool. Support needs a lot of attention, as it
needs to be changed and they must have to be more responsive and helpful to
become the best in the market.

One application unifies the entire sales cycle from leads to collaborating with internal team members. Why use 3, 4, or 5 programs, just use one. Yes, it might not always be the fastest, but when you don't need to switch from one application to the next, in the end, you are saving some time.If you also use Google Drive, you can share files with this program too. If you also need to track time for projects or with clients, this has a time tracking feature too. The visuals in Bitrix24 are awesome, if you like to see projects, plans, team's tasks visually, this is for you!

Pros

Act! CRM

  • Lots of fields for adapting the software to your own requirements.
  • Excellent tracking of activities/details in sales pipeline process.
  • Excellent robust reporting to provide a very clear picture of prospecting activities.
  • Tightly integrated with Sage Quantum accounting software to avoid double entry of prospect details into Customer/Sales module.

  • The internal HR manager in Bitrix24 does not allow us to create sufficiently structured graphical lists of all absences that each employee has taken during his career within the company, and of all accessibility requests by employees to access some limited functionalities within the service.
  • When it comes to group management work, it has been good to be able to identify elements within the service that remain oriented to business processes, such as the specialized area of web sales. Based on that, Bitrix24 is a good service to be able to manage business directly and to bring in leads on an ongoing basis, while still having positive results.
  • It is well known that despite being a sales and CRM service, Bitrix24 has enough features to be able to plan projects of different scopes. Each of the project setup operations that can be executed within the Bitrix24 platform are accurate, or at least seem better and more streamlined than with any other service we've had the opportunity to test.
  • Bitrix24 automates the execution of administrative dynamics to optimize the overall sales force level, thus leading to better level transactions within the sales modalities, and by integrating Bitrix24 with other sales services, it is possible to mobilize the documents of operations performed from one service to another.
  • It can also be used to increase the quality level of the technical support operations that our support staff manages, as it allows for reviews of each support session, in order to evaluate the technician in question who is talking to customers while he is working in real time.
  • In the case of managing crossover operations, we believe that Bitrix24 offers a good level of analysis for such crossovers, even when you need to work surprisingly with charts of various shapes that require a large number of crossovers. This information on graphs and reports coming from Bitrix24 is very easy to configure to match the technical formats or general aspects of any other CRM, without losing the quality of the work.

Cons

Act! CRM

  • Social Integration: The tool has a basic feed for LinkedIn information to feed into the system. The infusion of more Social Selling "signals" and "feeds" would be very helpful to instill more social selling into the framework.
  • Account vs. Contact: If you are a company which works to B to B rather than B to C there is a still a bit of cumbersome way to handle "joining" accounts and contacts through links. It is better with 16.1 release but still it's a "contact" centric solution which is great for some business relationships like realtors, insurance, & financial services etc.

  • It's user interface can use some work. Although it doesn't take as long as some other software to learn, there is still a bit of a learning curve when it comes to day to day usage.
  • Bitrix offers a lot of features. It would be nice to have those features laid out in an easier-to-read layout, versus the long list at the side of the page.
  • It's mobile app functionality is quite limited. It can be difficult to work with other team members, solely off of their mobile app.

There are a lot of good SaaS options on the market but SwiftPage ACT still has a place in the mix today. It depends on your needs, goals, processes, and people

ACT follows the basic rules you would expect for this type of software, but actually doing anything sophisticated with it is near impossible without assistance or training. Unless you use it regularly it is difficult to use. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have internal IT support and it will be used regularly.

This application is a complete scam and way over priced for what you are getting. They are filled full of false advertising and false statements regarding integrations. They claim to integrate with quickbooks and they DO NOT. This software accomplished nothing but making our day to day lives more difficult and wasted months of our time attempting to build out.

Following a few interactions with support staff over the phone where we failed to correct the issues we were calling about, we ended up going back to the consultant who we purchased the software through and continued to use her for support rather than call Swiftpage ACT! directly. Our consultant was much more helpful in finding and correcting our issues.

It comes with a lot of features for managing customers relation for making a dynamic marketing strategy. Sharing and attaching any type of file makes our work much easier for our portfolio. I personally don’t like its customer service that needs to be vigilant and should know the way they should treat their clients

Alternatives Considered

Act! CRM

Although other CRM's like HubSpot offer a free solution, I found that it didn't give much and the add-ons were very expensive. Many other companies have interfaces that are clunky or hard to understand. Also I found that many just offer way too many features that we would never use that just made it more difficult to use what we needed. The customized options are just way to expensive for the simplistic offering we need. Swiftpage ACT! just provides a solution that works for us.

The choice of the B24 was prompted by the fact that in 2012 the company had a box version, but without the CMR. The license was expired, the version was no longer supported by B24. In the stages, the company's directorate drove the employees into tasks for B24, but with different success. However, most of the B24 was still familiar.

Return on Investment

Act! CRM

  • ACT! pays for itself by keeping me organized.
  • I don't have to remember to contact a prospect, ACT! remembers for me, letting me schedule follow ups for a date and time that works for me. That means greater sales success.
  • ACT! enables me to search for information as well as contacts.

Bitrix24

  • We have been able to save on other applications such as the videoconferences that we now do at Bitrix24
  • By having better organization of tasks, we save time and are more efficient by being able to prioritize tasks easily
  • We improve customer service by following up and automating events that help us better follow up on negotiations
