If you need to have a visual front end for anything that is not hard to set up then this is the product to use. It does require someone with some coding knowledge but if you don't [have that] I am sure support can help as needed. The 2-factor authentication is great once we went live.

Nutshell

This can be used for different industries, healthcare, IT, retail or any company with a customer service line, big or small. if i had to ask, i would say "Do you have any type of filing system that you use?" "anything where you are keeping track of personal/ business information." Do you need access to information on a day to day basis?If they do , then this can be used , especially if you need to keep track of the numbers; we like how we can see if are things going up or down.

Nutshell

  • Customization - we are able to make Nutshell make the most sense for our company and processes
  • Scheduling - the ability to set tasks allows us to never forget a follow-up call or email
  • Tags - allow us to prioritize leads and segment our customers and potential customers
  • Communication - the ability to tag colleagues in notes for callbacks or updates to accounts is very helpful to keep everyone on the same page
  • Email History - being able to blind copy all our email communication to Nutshell, allows us to have email threads and notes all in one place

Cons

Avero

  • Once it is set up it's a bit cumbersome to tweak some of the canned reports.
  • Change colors in theme.
  • Secure log in during testing.
Peter Norton {LION} | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nutshell

  • SWOT analysis --- currently we put this in as custom fields but they don't link up at all and are hard to read/navigate. We also use the custom fields for other information we want to capture. It would be nice to build those in so they can show the info as bullet points or something --- currently paragraph form and hard to find things at a glance.
  • Funnel could use some work. Only shows how many leads are currently in that part of the pipeline which doesn't give us a good historical comparison.

This is perfect for a small business / Home based business with SaaS. Nutshell constantly adds new features and the price is much better than more robust software like Salesforce.

Nutshell's support team has always been great and they tend to go above and beyond. They are polite, friendly, personable and great listeners. They are also great about sending follow up emails too.

Implementation is difficult everytime but this was relatively simple due to the small amount of data we moved

Alternatives Considered

Avero

It was the only solution we had for our POS system that seemed reasonable. We liked that we could use it for multiple stores and didn't have to have the same POS for each

Nutshell

Well, my team had trials for these others and they all prefer Nutshell for different reasons. I prefer it as I need a user-friendly software to help me out as I am not a big tech guy. I have heard others in the office say things like they like the way activities are scheduled better, or the way nothing ever gets accidentally erased if they hard crash or power goes out.

Return on Investment

Avero

  • Increased our business 3x since we added a dashboard
  • Less need for staffing for manual reports
  • Mobile view is amazing!
Peter Norton {LION} | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nutshell

  • Nutshell's mobility has provided significant ROI for me since we've started using the CRM. I've been able to provide immediate feedback to clients, schedule meetings from the field with confidence, and much more.
  • Nutshell's tagging features have helped us craft custom mailing/email lists. We struggled to do this in the past.
