MCA Suite

It is a good tool for smaller companies entering the MCA space, but doesn't scale all that well, and provides limited options for reporting customization.

Zendesk Sell

Zendesk sell is best for organizations that want a clean and simple, yet powerfully effective CRM tool. It's intuitive, extremely user-friendly, supplies lots of video tutorials and access to the California team for FAQ's, and has all the features other, more complicated, expensive CRM's have. Great for institutions that have a need to tailor their database to fit your needs; and track sales, tasks, and pipeline projects in graphic form. It's affordable and has a great app for mobile phones that allows access to contacts, notes, tasks, and a workable platform while on the go in real time. It's simple to teach new users how to navigate and utilize. Adding or deleting users is simple, and access to the CRM information can be limited/private or made public for the entire team to access. Not as costly as some of the competing products, so if you are on a tight budget this may be the tool for you.

Pros

MCA Suite

  • They have lots of detail on the deal pages.
  • It allows for multiple internal and external users.
  • It has global search functionality.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Sell

  • My favorite piece is the Tasks connected to the Clients OR the Deals themselves that keep the process moving with the right steps, and helps our team from doubling our work, or missing a piece that is crucial for the completion of the sale.
  • The email integration helps to keep all things housed in one place also, so that you're not bouncing back and forth in multiple platforms to stay on top of the orders.
  • Customizations are a HUGE part of why we use Base CRM right now. We can make sure we are recording all of the right information, and not wasting time by having to fill in or skip over content that doesn't apply to our business model.
  • I also like the ability to tied Deals to multiple people, especially as Referrals come across, so we don't forget how we got in touch with different clients.

Cons

MCA Suite

  • Poor reporting.
  • Filtering is clunky.
  • They could improve on data visualization.
  • Renewal advances that are not refinances are difficult to manage.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Sell

  • My manager and I both tried the trial before we purchased Zendesk Sell. We had multiple and reoccurring times of signing in problems. Zendesk support was confused a handful of times as well. This got to be very old when one just wants to sign and start working
  • Customer support was very helpful at other times but when we finally needed to cancel as the login just never seemed to smooth out, and some other using options had cliches, we wouldn't just cancel over the phone OR via email. SO we had to keep and pay $59 for three more months, though never using the program.
  • I do not recommend them. We had several glitches that snagged the work flow and productivity. We are in process of finding a new CRM.

This product has a great backing of users, but needs more options direct from Base CRM on all operations of the software. YouTube videos do a great job of helping implement, and the back end support is a great help as well. The CRM is a great free option, and should be treated as such.

Simpler than most CRMs, which can be good if your sales team is not very tech savvy. We switched to HubSpot which provides a lot more value than Base did, but it isn't right for everyone. HubSpot is focused on capturing in-bound leads and has its own flaws and limitations, but overall it's a better fit for our needs.

Return on Investment

MCA Suite

  • We've been able to grow our working capital program over the years with the help of MCA Suite.
  • Data management is difficult, and we struggle with reporting.
  • We have granted merchants dedicated to their advances for tracking purposes.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Sell

  • Using Base has allowed us to double the number of active sales and partner engagements that we can keep track of and make progress on.
  • This has led to us being able to follow up on many smaller deals that were falling through the cracks.
