Ambassador
Should be used by organizations to promote business and bring in new customers, particularly the ones with a bigger customer base. It may or may not be used by small businesses as the data is not too much to store, however, I recommend using it anyway as it will save time and, in turn, let you do more for your business.

It is very user friendly, all options and features are easily accessible. Support material is readily available to help out with general queries or frequently asked questions. The software's customer-facing end does not require any special training or skills to use it to its full capacity. In short, it is easy and good looking.

I have not used too much software for the said purpose, but in comparison to the ones I have used, this one seems to be the most user-friendly and intuitive to use. That's the whole idea when you are paying for software: to cut down on admin work and save time.
