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.

Well suited to freelancers who have clients that book appointments with them. It's good when a freelancer offers a variety of services. When it's working, it's good for a client to be able to book an appointment and pay for it at any time of the day or night. I don't know the scenarios that would be less appropriate. There are many features, like for groups, that I don't use.

  • 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.

Cons

  • The learning process is more challenging and takes longer to get used to the way things are handled in Agile CRM.
  • Agile CRM needs to improve their testing and preview options for different campaign segments.
  • There are some user interface tasks that could be made more user friendly such as setting up email templates and forms templates.

  • They have a problem with the interface with Paypal. Dozens of clients have been kicked off the transaction, not completing their appointment requests even though they entered their credit card information. Another colleague has this same issue.
  • I go around this issue by not requiring that they provide payment at the time of the booking. I send them a manual invoice from Paypal. It adds extra time but I can't take the chance their appointments won't go through.
  • I have clients that receive confirmation notices that are not for the time that they booked. Sometimes, it has to do with time zones. It used to happen frequently when someone has a phone number registered in a different time zone. It hasn't happened in the past few months so they may have corrected this.
  • I can't change an appointment if the client made a mistake and booked the wrong type of service. The client has to cancel and rebook the appointment themselves. I should be able to do that once a client notifies me.

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.

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

Saleforce - Too expensive.SugarCRM - Versatile. Free. But Slow.Filemaker - Originally designed my own CRMWhich gave me full control of all functionality. But having an online system that is hosted in the cloud provides considerable advantages particularly when allowing access to remote users.
