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.

I am not an end-user but use Slate as an "outsider" since I'm in IT. I use it to verify data coming to and from our SIS PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. That being said, I think it is robust and easy for most to use. It is clearly seen as the "Best in Breed" for CRM/Recruiting/Admissions systems. I am a firm believer in going with such systems. There are strength and power in numbers. Technolutions is rather nimble and responsive with updates and addressing needs.

Cons

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.

Technolutions Slate

  • Probably just the aesthetics of layout.
  • The layout and user friendliness of the mobile app.
  • As much as I love their organic marketing strategy, I would love marketing material to share with other schools while I'm on the road. [Youtube demo, clean social media channels, etc]

Alternatives Considered

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.

We used Ellucian recruit that is based on Microsoft Dynamics, I must say that Slate is much simpler to use and navigate for everyday user. While Dynamics is very powerful and robust tool it is really hard to navigate and keep track of campaigns and prospects. Slate is simplified version of dynamics and better suited for users who are in higher ed, while dynamics is more for "sales" in enterprise world. Education world is different.
