Copper

Positives for [Copper (formerly ProsperWorks)]:-G Suite Compatibility: An industry problem Copper CRM is focused on solving is the lack of integration with current software systems like G Suite. Copper CRM is fully compatible with G Suite, and it is the only sales automation solution endorsed by Google.-Copper CRM is focused on the time-to-value ratio. It aims to provide the maximum value possible while limiting the time it takes for its users to input data manually. Some of its features include workflow and task automation for users who sign up for the two higher tiers.-Simplicity: Copper CRM is designed to be simple. The software has a handy sidebar where users can search for tasks, tracked emails, opportunities, and companies. A link to contact the Support team is also included. If users have issues, they can simply reach out to this team.-Quick Onboarding: Setting up or switching to Copper is a quick and painless experience. Copper focuses on getting new users set up within days, not weeks or months like some of its competitors.Negatives:-Lack of Features: The biggest drawback of Copper CRM is the lack of features it provides its users. It is designed for simplicity. Therefore, it is missing many of the advanced features offered by its competitors. For example, it doesn’t offer users a dedicated account manager, and click-to-call requires third-party software.-Lack of Flexibility Outside G Suite

Freshworks CRM (formerly Freshsales)

If you're looking for an extremely cheap, bare-bones CRM that will house a few hundred contacts that you manually enter, FreshSales is probably a fine solution for you. If you're running a sales or customer success team with any sort of scale or sophistication, this system will be unable to support your needs. I used to be an advocate of FreshSales as a good starter CRM, but due to all of their issues with downtime and bugs - and the fact that they deleted over half of our user data (20,000+ records) - I would strongly recommend that you avoid this company and spend a little extra to get something reliable.

Pros

Copper

  • The Google integration and Chrome extension automatically tracks and updates prospect and lead activity in the CRM. Data entry is simplified.
  • Copper is a very user-friendly CRM with the ability to create custom fields, multiple pipelines, sales stages, etc. It is truly customizable and far less complex than other CRMs I have used in the past.
  • Copper makes it simple to add leads manually, through Gmail or using a template and uploading a large list.
  • Great support. We are very happy with our account management team and they strive to make sure we are getting the most out of the platform.
  • Pricing is very competitive.

Freshworks CRM (formerly Freshsales)

  • It helps you automate your onboarding process for new leads.
  • It has lots of integrations with other apps, so you can interact with other things like calendars and calls.
  • It's pretty easy to set sequences so the platform automatically follows up with people for you. This is not only helpful for your sales pipeline, but also for client communication when working on a project that requires their input.

Cons

Copper

  • I wish they allowed you to email from within the CRM and create calendar invites from within the app instead of just kicking you out to a Gmail window.
  • I wish they included more custom fields and email tracking in their basic plan.
Scott Entwistle | TrustRadius Reviewer

Freshworks CRM (formerly Freshsales)

  • Automation ('workflows') need a bit of work. In comparison to other sales CRMs that automatically 'nudge' sales staff when a phone call or email hasn't been returned (for example), these nudges can be created as 'tasks' in Freshsales, but only by someone who knows what they're doing, setting explicit trigger and action rules that don't always cover all scenarios.
  • Event tracking with Segment (or just with their JS library) is a little bit haphazard. I'm sure it works well for in-app actions, but if a user visits your website and interacts with you and you aren't using the Freshsales forms on your website, it can be hard to identify users and track website visits and actions etc.
  • Learning curve– seems to be aimed at users with a bit more technical know-how; so might work well for SaaS sales teams or sales engineers, but not so much for users in other industries. Our non-technical staff have found it to be confusing.
  • Mobile Application– works very well as a contact directory, retrieving a quick overview of interactions, and now you can place voice notes that sync with the web app; these features aren't necessarily critical to our field salespeople. A user will still need to 'come back to the office' to retrieve missed voicemails, update deals notes, as well as place calls from their VoIP number. Freshsales will forward calls to a mobile, but won't allow the sales staff to place calls from their mobile device using their VoIP numbers (or receive calls from these lines).

It's funny. In all other processes EXCEPT for cancellation, the UX & UI is straightforward and friendly, gives you an adequate notification, and works as expected. Wonder why a company would have the opposite design principles in place for their cancellation process. It's almost as if they are intentionally trying to prevent people to cancel their accounts successfully. Beware.

I'm only trained in one portion of it, and I find that easy enough to maneuver. It's not an everyday must use product for me, so the fact that I can come back after days off and still find my way very easily speaks to the UI of the product

Overall the support for ProsperWorks CRM is OK. When I get hold of my reps they are pretty knowledgeable and usually solve my problems. When I first started using the software they were a lot harder to get hold of so this has improved. My biggest complaint though is that my feature requests seem to go into a black hole, I never hear the status of them and I have no idea if they have even been passed on.

Alternatives Considered

Copper

I selected Copper because of its interface with all things Google, specifically the sync feature for calendar and capture of email correspondence. It made sense to use Copper because our corporate communications is built on the Google platform. Bloomerang is an excellent tool for tracking donor contributions, but not as facile as a CRM. I didn't work extensively in Zoho or Salesforce.

Return on Investment

Copper

  • Speed to call leads has increased for us over 32%.
  • Opportunities have not fallen through the cracks with collaboration efforts from CS and Sales.
  • Saves us time inputting information into just Copper vs. multiple clicks and crappy integrations with other CRMs.

Freshworks CRM (formerly Freshsales)

  • It is too soon to make a determination on ROI, but I do think it will help me be more efficient.
  • The reporting functions help me stay on track of sales opportunities.
  • The task reminders help me accelerate how quickly deals come together.
