HubSpot CRM

Hubspot is an investment for any company- but depending on which package, bundle, or a la carte options you upgrade to, you can adjust purchases to best fit your business. Having Marketing Pro and Starter levels of Sales and Operations has given us the opportunity to seamlessly generate data to make informed decisions on how to improve business practices. Marketing is able to report and present useful statics on campaigns, social media posts, as well as forms utilized across the company. I highly recommend at least giving HubSpot a trial run to see if it can better your business practices.

Zoho CRM

Aside from letting you get to know your customer better, Zoho CRM is great for organizing the applications running in the business. Something that Zoho CRM did not do well was that it was focused on larger companies, but it has already been solved with Zoho Bigin. Maintaining an integration between both CRMs is excellent for more options
Alexis Correa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

HubSpot CRM

  • Allows a business to track the journey of a new lead, from beginning to activation
  • Users within the business can easily track progress of mutual clients or leads
  • The HubSpot CRM also comes with Hubspot Support, whereby if a user is unsure of how to use a tool, they can seek support to ensure they can optimize their use of the tool(s).
Dan Jamison | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • It is pretty easy to use. We don't need to set up formal training sessions for our users which lets us get new users up and running much quicker.
  • Great reporting section, you can extract some really detailed reports of your leads and their status.
  • User access control and 2-factor authentication are really easy to define and set up.
  • Some really great integrations with Zoho products and Gsuite.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

HubSpot CRM

  • There should be more control over who can change "Contact Owner" and "Original Contact Owner" (right now anyone has permission/access to make these changes).
  • HubSpot should allow more than one contact to have the same email address (for purposes of adding a 2nd contact to a company with a general email address).
  • There should be some additional categories with logging a call (ex. "Call Outcome" - line is busy, disconnected, out of service, etc.).
Mindy Kleinman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • You can only have one email attached to a form. This means that I have to go elsewhere to create a full drip campaign.
  • Reporting leaves a lot to be desired. It is difficult to set up reports exactly how we want them.
  • There are some things that aren't allowed to be customized that definitely should be
  • Support means well, but they rarely can help

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.

Zoho has been a wonderful tool for us for several years and there is so much more we can do with it. New features are released often which give a team like us the option to further fine tune our business process management techniques. I honestly couldn't imagine running our business not on Zoho.

I came from Salesforce which was so big that it became "white noise" in my day to day interactions. I often ignored a lot of workflows as their process became unnecessary in my day to work. HubSpot is great because everything is well laid out and defined. There's no "white noise within the HubSpot platform. I have my specific area of focus and I live there.

In my overall experience, I would highly recommend Zoho CRM, though it lacks the feature of partial entries, still we used that for our non-profit organization. They have offered us a non-profit discount as well. Moreover, their support is good, and has dedicated employees to help the clients. From my experience, sometimes, we got the idiots, but overall the support is good. They have helped us in doing custom functionalities that other CRM providers don't do for free.

I love the HubSpot support team - they have always been fantastic to work with and extremely helpful. Whether it's via chat or an email, I never wait long for a response and they don't just "answer the question." They dig deep with you when figuring out a solution, and make sure to give you all the information you need to ensure you're ready to go.

We did the training and that was a huge waste of money. The information provided was basic and the instructor was sloppy (he even forgot to turn off his mic when he used the restroom - no one should ever hear what we heard). I offered up a 9 because we were able to find what we needed on your website.

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

Take it slowly and meet often with your team to solicit their feedback. Listen to what they are saying so that if something is not clear, you can address it before they turn on the CRM. Also, whatever system you were one previously will not match Zoho CRM which is both good and bad. It's good as I know Zoho CRM will be better than whatever you're been using. Bad because it will require change and how you did things in your old CRM may need to be modified a little when using Zoho CRM.

Alternatives Considered

HubSpot CRM

It's simply much better than them. It updates all the time and it integrates with pretty much anything else that you might need in the web to run your business effectively. It has so many features stacked together in one app, from emails to texts to calls to data to everything!
Christos Socratous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

To be honest, we really like Zoho CRM but Salesforce was really good as well. It was just too big for us. Salesforce had too many options and too much going on. We couldn't get it all going properly and didn't enjoy using it like we do with Zoho. We also didn't get the same warm feeling with Salesforce as we do with Zoho. We have gotten better customer service with Zoho

I think Zoho CRM is priced at a reasonable amount. Simply put, you get what you pay for and Zoho does not disappoint. My organization is comfortable with what we pay and pleased with continually renewing the software. The billing frequency is just right. There are no complaints on our end

In addition to being a user of Zoho CRM, we are a reseller as well. Often, at times our Partners request for on-boarding the platform configuration for them. During such requirements, we have utilized the Professional services team directly from the Zoho CRM team. Our partner feedback was quite positive, throughout.

Return on Investment

HubSpot CRM

  • ROI may take time to achieve if your business is small.
  • Helps organize the deals in the best way, one cannot miss on follow ups.
  • Lot of effort is saved on planning communication related to deals.
  • All data is organized well.
Nandkumar Bhujbal | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • We had Zoho CRM early on when it wasn't quite as robust as it is now, so there have been vast improvements, which also puts us at a disadvantage for falling into old ways of doing things rather than exploring new ways that we always wanted in the beginning.
  • One thing we were able to do is get rid of MailChimp and slowly migrate to Campaigns
  • Eventually I would like to migrate Zoom to Meeting but it's just not quite there yet.
  • Also, I do have to say going just from the CRM to Zoho One was a VAST improvement where many apps were available. At first, I was so disappointed in the CRM but with all the integrations it's been so much better!
