Highrise

We chose to work with the Basecamp product and along with it came Highrise. They're a great 37 signals package together. So we chose to work with Highrise because of Basecamp

Less Annoying CRM

My needs are to deal with a contact base of several hundred. These are everything from hot prospects, buying customers, lost causes, wishful thinking contacts, manufacturing sources of several different types, and candidates for my shop network. This CRM is well suited to organizing these into appropriate categories, permitting sorting by any number of factors, and keeping track of all contacts in addition to providing a very easy to use future contact scheduling system.I don't know how well it would fit a very complex organization, but that's not my requirement. I used Salesforce for some time, and got lost with all the various menus and features I did not need. Less Annoying CRM is exactly what I need and am very pleased with my decision to use it.

Pros

Highrise

  • Easy batch upload of new contacts - if you gathered names and contact info for a bunch of people at an event or conference or what have you, put it in a spreadsheet and upload it for easy and efficient adding to the database.
  • Simple communication and outreach tracking - each user has an individualized dropbox email address; you can BCC:, CC:, or forward an email to or from a client or contact, and Highrise automatically associates and records that email with the contact in the database.
  • Task assignments - users can create and task assignments associated with specific contacts (ie - Send Suzy J. a gift box on Oct 1; Follow Marla K. and Billy Z. on Twitter & Facebook; Get an updated address from Nathan R.)
  • Tags - easily create lists of contacts who fit certain needs (I need a: food blogger, in TX, who has a Facebook page - we have "food blogger", "TX," and "Facebook" tags in our system) that is then exportable; also useful for knowing the important associations of a particular contact.

  • The customization is the key that allows this CRM to help us be successful.
  • Organization is easy and it keeps us on task.
  • We don't miss a beat anymore! With daily reminders, it is easy to see what we must do each day.
  • With two of us working simultaneously on multiple projects, LACRM makes it so we can keep up with each other with constantly emailing back and forth.

Cons

Highrise

  • Im actually pretty happy with the system as it is. The best aspect of Highrise is that it is very easy to work with - no need to struggle with manuals and lengthy training.
  • Not really a problem I suppose but I pay for Highrise as part of a suite which includes other products - Basecamp, Backpack and Campfire. It would be nice to see more integration between these products.

Less Annoying CRM

  • I would love to see more options for integration. EmailMeForm is a big one I'd love to see.
  • Would love to be able to remove things like pipelines to fully customize things. Also, would love to see the ability to have a program within LACRM that works somewhat like Quickbooks where you can enter in payment information and it goes to a form/file to keep track of payments too.

Alternatives Considered

Highrise

Highrise is simple to use and is run by the same folks who build Basecamp and 37Signals. We wanted something that would do the essentials without the cumbersome bells and whistles. Salesforce is almost too complicated if you don't have a whole sales operation and analytics division. One day we will probably outgrow Highrise, but not yet.

Less Annoying CRM

There is simply no comparison. Quickbooks Lead Center is very limited in its ability to produce reports or even use a follow-up spreadsheet. In QuickBooks Lead Center your follow-up consists of a report that doesn't show any notes, must be clicked on one by one and when printed only prints the name of the lead (no notes, dates etc.) With Less Annoying CRM you can customize reports, print them easily and have useful information right at your finger tips. Absolutely the best decision we made to increase our ROI.

Return on Investment

Highrise

  • Better customer service, I am able to look up client info in a more organized way
  • I feel that our efficiency has really increased. Highrise is a lot faster than our old program
  • Highrise keeps us very organized. but it would be helpful if there was a project management section we could implement
Stephanie Belleville | TrustRadius Reviewer

Less Annoying CRM

  • It is very affordable, we hardly notice this invoice each month, but it has helped us grow our business year after year by keeping track of all of our clients and prospect info, we never miss a follow up anymore.
