Likelihood to Recommend

Cosential

Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

YetiForce CRM

YetiForceCRM is warmly recommended for any enterprise with the need for a solid, reliable CRM system without the typical high costs attached. It is not suitable for companies without a strong IT support due to its server requirements and lack of documentation that requires experimentation to some extent. A cloud-based system would be more suitable in this scenario.

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.

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

YetiForce CRM

The two reasons we have decided towards YetiForceCRM were its price (free) and the customization options (almost unlimited). The other CRM systems come with a price tag but still have many features left out. On the other hand, YetiForceCRM gives us the option of custom modules resulting in full control of our data and workflows.
