Agile CRM

Agile CRM is well suited if an existing customer business process is defined or drafted thoroughly. Agile allowed automating workflows and marketing to improve lead management and suppress tedious tasks so users can focus on more important matters. However, Agile CRM costs can increase significantly if you want additional features and customizations. If you know what you're doing with CRMs and marketing automation or customer contracts and management then AgileCRM is worth a try.

Square Customer Engagement

[Square is well suited for] Any small business / independent contractor with little to medium business flow where a monthly fee just doesn't make sense. If you are performing large transactions or have a lot of business / a lot of people using square readers then an actual flat rate from a bank / provider would likely be a better option.

Pros

  • The template emails saves a lot of time and is used quite often.
  • The synchronization of contacts from Outlook to GMail and other platforms allows easy follow-up to all communications for each lead, deal and contact.
  • The integrations with websites and providers promotes encourage to explore more solutions to improve business activities.
  • The chat support is very helpful. They're patient and will answer your questions and offer recommendations to their development team to implement them as new features if it's important your business needs.

Cons

  • The email builder really needs an open HTML section to allow you to easily embed code in your email.
  • It's not easy to view the complete number of contacts when over 10000.
  • More help documents on their site would make using the campaign feature better.

  • Some of the build quality on the peripherals could feel a bit better.
  • Have more options for businesses with more credit card transactions such as monthly or discounted per transaction once a certain number is reached.
  • Have functionality to allow for a typed card number without the higher fee if the software verifies there is a hardware/read error with the card.

There was a little bit of a learning curve and some bumps along the way to managing this platform, but AgileCRM appears to be responsive to any challenges that arise, which I consider to be of vital importance.

The training sessions are very helpful, because you have specialist that is available to answer any questions, guide you and coach you on how to dominate a certain feature of the platform. That being said,Whenever I have an issue that needs to be resolved, I can send email or call a support line. I usually use the support line.

The performance of AgileCRM has been acceptable to date. I'm pleased with the ability to modify leads in the system and search for them and add groups to campaigns.

Each section of the AgileCRM platform has an instructional video that describes in detail all of the features of that section. I found this to be very instructional way to learn about each section. Whenever I had more questions, I could always schedule a conference call with a tutor..

Alternatives Considered

I trialed a number of other CRMs much to the disgust of my colleagues!
  • Pipedrive was great but more sales focussed and heavy on Javascript so felt slow at times
  • OnePageCRM was good but no sales automation when we tried it
  • Highrise - wanted to love it but too basic and even though we had a free license bundled with Basecamp we didn't use it.
  • Capsule was good but basic
  • Salesforce was too complicated to learn
  • Infusionsoft and Hubspot were too hard sell (Hubspot wanted a 1 year commitment)

The only other service similar to Square I have any interaction with is PayPal here, it works in a very similar manner, and at the time had the same exact fee schedule. It has the added perk of going directly into your PayPal account if this is a service you use a lot of for your business. It (at the time) did not have any additional readers or peripherals such as NFC or Chip readers, but that may have changed now. Over all I'd say they are pretty close to each other performance wise, but Square has a bigger user base for the card reader specifically.

This products Starts with a free Limited version. You can upgradeTo an affordable paid version with minimal features. There's also an enterprise version which is what I have. It's much more expensive, however it allows me to access the full range of features available.

Return on Investment

  • All contact data is in one spot
  • You can see a detailed view of each contact's deal history
  • It is a more affordable option than some CRMs

  • This has allowed me to accept credit / debit transactions without having to have a monthly subscription to a service and lose money on times of no to little use, allowing me to have a broader customer range as checks are risky.
  • All of my initial equipment was free and there were no startup costs so my return was immediate.
  • The small fee taken out of the transaction is very much worth the ability to accept nearly all plastic transactions.
