HubSpot
Very easy to use CRM. Allows to easily manage database of clients, and organize tasks/lead funnels. Very user friendly and layout is great. Would be nice if it were able to track duplicates better, and if had an easier way to integrate with Outlook would be a perfect 10 in my book.

Sellsy
We like sellsy. Its not perfect and as other users have pointed out, there is and always will be, room for improvement.

If you require deep integration with Google apps and Microsoft Office 365, then Sellsy may not be for you. Sellsy just about manages to work with google in so far that it can sync contacts, calendar, sales docs and incoming email with google. There is currently no way to make sent email appear in the sent items section of sellsy unless you compose the email within the sellsy app. The O365 integration is not nearly as powerful as sellsy does not sync sellsy contacts or calendar with microsoft (in its current form).

I believe that one of the primary functions of any business management app should be the capability to centrally manage all of a company's business clients, contacts etc. and sync this data to all employee accounts with the 2 biggest players for business email (Microsoft and Google) as a minimum. This data should never be an island stored only on 1 application. The Discovery that sellsy does not currently sync contacts and calendars with O365 was a disappointment. If Sellsy started supporting exchange sync for Microsoft Office 365 we would immediately dump google and switch over. In fact Sellsy is the only reason we continue to use Gapps as we need our contacts and calendars synced to our mobile devices.

We have built up a list of small little things that do not work as expected since we started using sellsy and continually pass them on to the development team. Many are small trivial things from an engineering perspective but are still annoying nonetheless, especially to users who wish to get the job done. Employees are easily frustrated if they have to fight with software to do certain tasks. Annoyances in the user experience (no matter how small) can lead to lost productivity which in turn costs money in the business world. However based on our experience with Sellsy support we believe that they do listen carefully to their customers concerns and are on the path to deliver a quality experience to their customers through the process of frequent updates to the software. You can easily establish how good a SAAS provider is by measuring their ability to fix problems soon after they are initially reported.

In simple terms Sellsy is an incredibly feature rich application and is way ahead of the competition. It represents good value for money and is backed up by free support.

Pros
HubSpot
  • Lack of organization: It allows us to keep all customer and lead information in one central location, reducing the risk of losing valuable data.
  • Inefficient lead management: It allows us to track and prioritize leads based on their level of engagement, making it easier to focus on the most promising opportunities.
  • Poor lead nurturing: It allows us to create targeted, personalized campaigns that nurture leads and move them through the sales funnel.

Cons
HubSpot
  • Social Media Integration - You can't search for hashtags, and there's a photo cap.
  • Mock Project - Just an idea: I took the Onboarding, and I think it could've been helpful to be given a prompt wit, with different elements required to set up a mock campaign. It can be hard at the moment to do it for yourself. I found that for my agency, I wasn't necessarily ready nor authorized to make decisions, but still learn best by doing. A mock campaign assignment would've been beneficial for someone like me. Although, I can see how not everyone would want that.
  • I found the workbook section/reference section for Onboarding to be confusing. If I clicked on a task it disappeared. I expected workable exercises, but it was mostly articles. I needed my Onboarding coach to show me how to use that, which is probably stupid, but I guess the UX wasn't as idiot-proof there for me.

  • Training. The only real issue I have with Sellsy is that its got so many features its hard to understand them all. I looked for training videos and they are all in French. Thats a big problem for a guy who grew up in NJ.
  • I would embed training videos directly into the software. This way as you add services, you get a full tutorial immediately.

To be honest there are some barriers due to which we are unable to use Hubspot at it's full potentials. The region that we work in has some restrictions that don't allow us to make calls or text which leaves us to just Email to the client.

Sellsy ticks the most boxes for us. While it could still do a lot of things better there is no other single app that offers the same spectrum of features at a comparable price for SMEs.

Usability
HubSpot
It’s super easy to use. Everything is labeled perfectly so you know where everything is. You can create your own labels. Compared to having everything on paper this is definitely a lot more organized and nothing gets lost which is the best part. I would definitely recommend HubSpot to anyone. I mean what’s not to love about it!

Support Rating
HubSpot
Because when I needed help HubSpot responded immediately and provided me with the information I needed which enabled me to realize that HubSpot was even more customizable and easier to use than I thought! And I already thought HubSpot was very user friendly and easy to use, and then Support showed me how to manipulate the settings, columns and the appearance of the tool.

Based on our experience. We have submitted a large amount of tickets and they have proven the Sellsy development team have the ability to respond fast and implement changes reasonably quickly. (Updated July 2015)
It took sellsy a number of weeks to solve an issue with the billable hours section of their application. This delayed us from being able to invoice our client for completed works. Lots of small things like email tracking timestamps have never been fixed even though we highlighted this issue months ago. Though small it is growing more and more frustrating to be reminded every time we try to see what time a client read or opened an email from us.

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

If you are importing data from a CSV, Sellsy recommends you use OpenOffice. OpenOffice is an absolute disaster on Windows 8 and crashes every few mins. While no fault of Sellsy they should not recommend software which makes an already challenging task even more difficult. A small gripe in hindsight but during the process was deeply frustrating. For any users looking to format your CSV Google, try importing CSV data into Excel and your life will be much more easy.

The process of using it is very easy and the display is very simple but compact, are the main reasons for Hubspot to be the best CRM tool for me at this time. Its use from upstream to downstream is also easy to understand, but still professional. Hubspot CRM with advantages like these can make complex sales jobs easy.

For me it is close to what Salesforce did. I do not use all the options they both offer so I mostly judge on the customer / contact tool.

The license model once you understand it is very flexible allowing you to select from the modules within sellsy. This gives small companies control of the cost facilitating them with the option to only pay for the features they use.
