Capsule CRM

If you want a super robust CRM that does it all, Capsule is not the way to go. It's missing a lot of elements that more powerful CRMs have (though it makes up for it with many integration possibilities). But in my opinion, that simplicity can be a good thing if you just want a way to keep track of your sales pipeline. A lot of people don't have the time or mental bandwidth to learn a new system, and it's better to learn something simple than to barely use something powerful. Capsule is also great if you have to keep track of a lot of contacts--a small PR firm would find this very useful.

Pros

Capsule CRM

  • Many fields. It's not super customizable, at least at the free level, but there are many fields that you can utilize to fit your needs
  • Entirely web based. We've never experienced down time or lag issues.
  • Free! It's hard to find a powerful database for free.

Cons

Capsule CRM

  • Would be handy to allow an individual to be linked to more than one organisation. A number of our customers are in two bodies, eg a GP practice and a GP federation.

Alternatives Considered

Capsule CRM

Salesforce was a complete failure for us because it did way too much. The learning curve was too steep, it was too expensive, and it didn't fit us overall (we're a very small business).Insightly was clumsy and didn't have the flexibility (and huge amount of integrations) that Capsule has. We've looked at other CRMs but Capsule won out in terms of pricing, flexibility, and ease of use.

Return on Investment

Capsule CRM

  • It's enabled us to have a cloud-based live database, rather than living off spreadsheets or an antiquated Access database
  • It's hard to really quantify ROI on a small startup, but it's been very helpful to have a small scale but powerful CRM as we grow the company.
  • Since we don't use it entirely as it's intended, the terminology and shortcuts are a bit confusing.
