Sage CRM

Only having one primary contact can cause issues for companies who are more specialized and custom. We deal with many people throughout the company so this can cause issues on trying to figure out who to contact. Creating advanced custom screens are also rather complicated and many times would require outside work to complete.For retail it is much more simplistic and easy to use. Storing all customer information along with communication info is simple.

Pros

Sage CRM

  • SAGE CRM is a very clean and easy to use interface and easy to navigate around. Users seem to instantly understand with very little training where they are in the system, which is not always true of other system we have used in the past. The Key sometimes is removing 'clutter' for that user.
  • Sales and Sales Manager tend to find it is very intuitive and since it is flexibly with its design, we have created various extra option to improve sales peoples management of Contracts, Events and even Samples, saving and eliminating multiple spreadsheets.
  • Case Management and workflow capabilities together with the ability to offer Self Service and embed into your website has been very powerful and a number of client have found this can save them tremendous time. Adding in automatic notifications through a powerful workflow capability can save hours of time for the Users
  • Flexible Reporting using a wizard approach means that the system is easy to train on and for users we find that they embrace this even more since they feel an ownership for the CRM system, something that all CRM User aspire too.
  • Flexible licencing and Editions. Not always well known, but SAGE CRM has two editions (somewhat confusing) the Cloud or SAGE CRM.com doest use the same naming convention, but these are Standard And Advanced Editions. However, in particular, there is a Concurrent Licence option, albeit at a premium, but we once saved a client over £14000 on a 50 user system when they migrated to SAGE CRM Concurrent from their existing Named Licence CRM system, paying for the complete migration in year One

  • As a customer of Salesboom we get a dedicated CRM consultant that helps out with customizations, data importing, etc.
  • Customer support is great.
  • The CRM gets updated quarterly without user intervention.

Cons

Sage CRM

  • One of the areas that Sage CRM is different is the way that Appointments and Tasks are delivered to the user in the interface. This presents a challenge in the way that most people utilize a Calendar in their daily execution. Many companies want to see a color coded Calendar for multiple team members and this is provided through a 3rd party.
  • Executing workflow through the mobile device is another area that users have requested. With such a strong workflow and escalation engine extending to the mobile interface would be groundbreaking in the CRM industry.
  • The data loading tools also need some work. In today's world we often extend the platform for unique entities and today we use 3rd party tools for any data migration besides basic customer and contact information.

  • The billing and invoicing needs a bit of improvement.
  • We would like to see more ERP-like features.
  • The customer self service portal needs improvement.

There are really no other words to say, it is a very easy to use application that is more straightforward and has provided better results with the bulk of features that appeal to a very broad amount of users. There may be other CRM platforms out there that are more prevalent, but I have found them to be much more clunky and less intuitive than Sage CRM.

Helped us improve on our sales and build up client base while still maintaining their contact databases.The system is relatively cheap compared to deliverables and it's easier to understand and use.Managers no longer need to sit down with staff since it's easier to track from the system on specific key parameters that guide us towards realizing better returns.

Performance

Sage works very quickly based on the network you are using it on. It is internet based so if your network is slow, it will perform slowly. Reports seem to run reasonably fast, if there is too much information it is trying to populate that could slow it down a little. When Sage CRM is integrated with a Sage ERP product it doesn't tend to slow down either system at all

The implementation and upgrades were rather quick and straight forward.Attempting to link Sage CRM with Sage 100 ERP however was a nightmare and will be avoided by us in the future due to numerous issues.

Alternatives Considered

Sage CRM

I have evaluated and implemented MS Dynamics CRM from a business perspective, and more recently Salesforce.com CRM as an administarator. Sage was more intuitive than Salesforce, and also less expensice than both of them. At that time, I used Sage CRM because the company I was working with had purchased Sage ERP. However, they never implemented it, but I did implement Sage CRM almost by myself. It is a great tool to manage sales process and marketing campaigns.

Salesboom worked with us from day one before purchasing our requirements. Once we rolled out the CRM implementation, their customer support is very helpful. The system is very user friendly, feature rich and the prices are very competitive.

Another Important advantage for Salesboom.com CRM is that they have a service level agreement, with an up time guarantee.

  • Allowed more predicative information on where the business is from a pipeline perspective so we can predict future business and resource requirements.
  • Allowed us to manage our customer support more effectively with less staff and allows cases and information to be passed from one staff member to another easily.
