HubSpot CRM

The best CRM out there. Easy to use, very intuitive. Perfect for someone that doesn't know anything about coding. I love that everything is drag and drop. I can't think of a scenario where HubSpot wouldn't be a good option for any company (capability-wise). When it comes to cost, it can be extremely expensive for small/medium companies. The free/cheaper options are too limited for the small companies, so there aren't a lot of reasons to choose HubSpot when what they'll be receiving is basically nothing.

Microsoft Dynamics 365

All told, if it hadn't been for the fact that we were testing it with both employees who knew CRM lingo and those who were new, we wouldn't have found such an issue. The program itself can be very useful for people who already manage CRMs, who know how to use them, who know how to run and manage employees on them, namely because of the "one-stop-shop" concept in data visibility. When it came down to it though, if you have high-turnover, then this product will devolve into only being used for it's base components. Down the middle, we found that the people who'd been in marketing for 4-5 years fell into the product easily because of the way it was written. Everyone before that, with novice experience, thought it was written like a textbook for a graduate class - little to no leeway if you don't happen to know one specific term

Pros

HubSpot CRM

  • Ease of use in the beginning - Not a steep learning curve to start using it.
  • The free version surprisingly includes a lot of features.
  • It can grow with you as your company / client base grows.
  • Has increasingly improved its available integrations with other software.
  • Surprisingly a lot of great features that integrate with Gmail (what our company uses). Other CRM software are more geared towards Outlook.

Microsoft Dynamics 365

  • Some useful out-of-the-box features, like mass uploads of Leads from trade shows or when qualifying a Lead, CRM automatically creates the Opportunity, Contact, and Account for you, etc.
  • Really powerful customizations through the user interface to improve user experience. Things like Business Rules, for example, if Field A = 1, then Field B = 2 and Field C = 2, if Field A = 2, then Field B and Field C don't apply, so automatically hide them.
  • Or other functionality that improves user experience, like Business Process Flows. These walk users step by step through our business process, helping them know when certain actions should take place, and at what point other data is now required. We've used this extensively with our Lead to Opportunity to Quote to Order process, helping users understand the business process each step of the way.
  • Customizations built on top of the platform now called model-driven PowerApps. You can have connections to "typical" data, like Accounts, Contacts, or Opportunities, for example, but then connect that data to custom entities, records that only apply to your specific business. This is all done through the user interface and allows you to customize and automate specific line-of-business applications for your specific needs.
  • Behind the scenes, D365 CE is built on SQL. So the data conforms to industry standards and makes it much easier to interact with. Your developers and IT team will thank you.

Cons

HubSpot CRM

  • I wish that contact details could be edited from the main contact page (in more of a spreadsheet style), rather than having to individually click into each contact or preview a contact to change data
  • A/B testing for emails or steps within sequences would be helpful
  • Currently, the details of each step in a sequence can only be viewed if you click "edit", but if would be nice to be able to read the emails that are contained within a sequence without having to go into edit mode.

Microsoft Dynamics 365

  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 storage & license cost can prohibit some large deployments or even cost-sensitive small projects from using the platform (although I'm certain most deployments would realize a positive ROI if implemented correctly with process automation).
  • The cost and licensing document for Dynamics 365 is 61 pages and will take a rocket scientist to understand it. It's better to just have your Microsoft help estimate the cost if they are willing to help you that.
  • The documentation on how to first fully understand the Out of the Box default solution and settings is lacking or even non-existing. This has the potential to derail Dynamic 365 launches and implementations from the gitgo. Want to use an out of the box entity?.. well it's probably related to 5 other entities that require configuration and full understanding of it to successful implement. And you ask where is the laymen guide or instructions?... User groups and forums. In Summary, Microsoft can up its game in deployment training and supporting documentation.
  • Microsoft needs to incentivize more external platforms to build app connectors for easy integration, such as ZenDesk, Slack, Tableau, etc. Even the current connector apps such as Salesforce, MailChimp, Docusign are useless or don't work at all.
  • Several limitations inhibit successful Dynamics 365 deployments such as: limited number of Rollup field calculations (summarizing fields on child/related records), limited number rows that can exported to Excel via advanced find, Dynamics 365 files, log and database storage size limit is extremely small and will always require purchasing additional storage (for Online deployments).
  • New user buy-in or acceptance or system platform changes can be difficult if a solid change management plan isn't enacted.
  • Don't expect much help from Microsoft on implementation or solutions unless it's a technical flaw with the platform. Microsoft relies on their MVP partner network to consult for implementations at a hefty cost. Hiring a knowledgeable and savvy Dynamics 365 System Administrator can reduce the need for consultant support; of course, this is dependant upon many many variables.

Because it's integrated with HubSpot marketing platform, which is indispensable, and works simply and seamlessly with the marketing platform. The CRM is intuitive, never a time burden, and makes doing business development work a whole lot easier and enjoyable. I think at this point it's safe and fair to say we would be somewhat lost without the CRM.

CRM has allowed us to keep all of our data in one place that is easy for all users within the company to view. I came into the company after they had been using CRM for about 4 years. They have all said that since we have used this it has helped us control work processes better, it has allowed us to be able to track things so much better, and has been something that has helped unite many processes that used to be all over the place.We are currently using CRM 4.0 and are planning on upgrading in the next 18 months to the 2011 version. Support for 4.0 is almost all but dried up. Understandably so. Some of the customization we have done, and a plugins we use, are now contained within the 2011 version so we are looking forward to that upgrade.We use an email marketing company as well, and they primarily support the 2011 version, but their product connects and is integrated within CRM. This is a great benefit as well so that all of our marketing information can be contained in one location.

Hubspot CRM is a perfect performing CRM, from the collecting of clients information, the storage of it, and the constant update when required. Besides, there is proper online training, to individuals who want to run the usability of the program. Finally, Hubspot CRM design is intuitive and precise for every device, hence compatible.

As told before in the review, Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a one-stop solution for the overall business, it involves all departments in the organization, and makes business functionalities smooth by timely follow-ups, customer retention, customer engagements, and helps in maintaining a good relationship between customers and the businesses.

HubSpot has a very good customer support, one can chat in real time by phone or text, or send an email. I have not had to use their support very much, but when I have they have been very professional and quick to respond to address my needs and concerns.

If you've had any prior experience with cloud based marketing automation or group communication tools, you can do the implementation without paid outside support. Though getting to a SLA (service level agreement) would be best achieved with the help of a third party who can facilitate

We used a data warehouse to house our data, and our IT team and implementation vendor worked diligently ahead of time to construct idea implementation plans. Out of millions of records- we had less than a dozen errors, which is remarkable. My major insight is simply having a group of completely devoted individuals working towards your goal who fully understand the desired outcome. Focused resources for implementation season are critical to success.

Alternatives Considered

HubSpot CRM

HubSpot CRM is much more user-friendly and intuitive than Salesforce. The reporting feature is prominently featured vs. having to go to a separate tab. The email integration with Gmail is much easier to be set up by the user vs relying on someone else internally to arrange. Metric tracking for sales management is also readily available and visible to the sales reps on a daily basis.
Matt Stafford | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Dynamics 365

Salesforce has more desirable functions than Microsoft Dynamics 365, at a competitive price. Its user interface is far more superior, it has more customization, easier customization, and out of the box it is more pleasing to the eye and to the end user. If the client doesn't have a deep-rooted connection with Microsoft I wouldn't leap to Dynamics 365.

Return on Investment

HubSpot CRM

  • Success with Initial Contact has gone up without question. We immediately get in touch with virtually every client we follow up with.
  • Average Meetings Booked has greatly increased thanks to the Meetings tool. I'm able to book meetings literally in my sleep.
  • Decreased Sales data entries have gone down significantly. Thanks to HubSpot, we simply spend way less time manually inputting things and more time selling.
  • Customer Satisfaction and Online Reviews are certainly way up. Nearly half of our online reviews are all from the last 18 months and I think HubSpot had a role in that positive customer response.

  • It is hard to say, the reason why we are using Microsoft Dynamics CRM is because it is provided to us for free.
  • It could be worthwhile to investigate whether an alternative CRM (even though paid) can be used to boost the ROI
