ADAPTcrm

It really works as an all-in-one solution for multiple business needs such as human resource management, sales exploration, and payroll operations. Ultimately, it works better for a larger organization and can be an overkill for smaller organizations or non-profits. In many ways, the numerous features and operations can help alleviate the need for acquiring multiple programs and the training involved.

Really Simple Systems

Really Simple Systems is perfect for a small team that needs to track contacts and outreach. Once you expand upon 5+ people, I think you should look to invest in a larger system, however this may not be necessary.

Pros

Cons

  • The interface can be difficult to learn at first and a little overwhelming for new users.
  • The lack of customization of some features without additional support.
  • The software maker provides multiple forms of the application which can be confusing when making a purchasing decision.

  • It isn't completely specified to what we do, but that is fine given that it is an "out of the box" system.
  • No other cons.

Alternatives Considered

ADAPTcrm is a bit different than other programs with similar feature sets. It offers a more well-rounded set of features that can be beneficial for an organization looking for an in all-in-one solution without much customization. On the other hand, if customization or changes are needed, the costs can be increased greatly with the need for developers or support from the company. Some CRM solutions may require a great deal of programming which ADAPTcrm does not necessarily need, potentially saving a great deal of time in implementation.

We were limited in terms of budget and our IT department wanted the data hosted in the UK. RSS fit with all of our requirements. We looked very closely at Kinetix as this also has an integrated event booking system which would have been ideal for us but it was too expensive.

  • It simplifies my client list and saves time. I will know the ROI when I get the other offices on board.
