Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

Maximizer CRM

Maximizer CRM is a great tool for customer relationship management. I would like to see more integration with other CRM programs to allow existing data to be easily imported. I would like to see an expanded calendar with better visibility to different users. For the price, it is a very powerful tool that we use daily.

Cons

Cosential

  • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
  • Report writing could be more intuitive.
  • The company seems to cater to larger users.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Maximizer CRM

  • It is difficult to look directly in the database for information. This is mainly do to the flexible/customizable nature of the program. Because of this, tables and columns in the database are very generic and low level information can be difficult to find.
  • The ability to remotely sync in with the server and update the data can be very slow, depending on the amount of new data that needs to be pushed from the remote location.

We are heavily entrenched in Maximizer and trying to pull our data out and into another CRM, with the same amount of customization and workflow would take a lot of effort.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

The support staff are very knowledgeable and competent. Never really had an issue with them not knowing what they are doing.

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Maximizer CRM

We chose to go with Microsoft Dynamics CRM over Maximizer because of the customization and marketing options that were associated with Dynamics. The ease of use with Maximizer, however, was far better than that of Microsoft Dynamics.
