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.

Zoho CRM

Using Zoho CRM alone or with minimal integration is the best way to use it for medium-sized businesses. It is ideal for customer management and lead generation, and it's a software service, so it's not reliable for privacy. FOR EXAMPLE, ZOHO CRM is ideally suited for simple CRM sales processes for a single company. The APIs are not well-tested and may have problems from time to time. It is less expensive than Salesforce or Salesforce Pro, but it supports fewer third-party integrations.

Pros

Sellsy

  • Appealing Design
  • Easy to prepare invoices and send them
  • Good tracking system
  • Friendly support staff
Pascal Guignard | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • Because of its Cloud-based services, we quickly access this from any device with an internet connection.
  • Zoho CRM saves our time by automating processes that help reduce manual data entry, eliminate redundancies, and accelerate our entire process.
  • The most enjoyable thing is that it provides real-time insights about our customers, enabling us to connect with them across channels easily.
  • Zoho CRM is best at managing and automating many functional areas, including marketing, sales, operations, and engineering.

Cons

Sellsy

  • 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.
James DeRosa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • You need someone to slog through the training. You need either an expert or someone who knows what they are doing because there is a lot, and you can't always depend on textbook-style writing for help.
  • At the time I reviewed, there was no feature that was unable to be off-network - unless I missed this.
  • Communication tracking at every level, including large scale.

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.

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.

Zoho CRM is very functional, but it can get complicated. It is not always clear where you go to customise settings. The settings screens have so many options. And when you're managing multiple tools, it is not clear which settings screens will contain the changes that you want to make.

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.

I have not used Zoho support since I started with the company. Majority of my findings have come through knowledge base or Google search sites. Not saying the support at Zoho is bad, but I need things answered quicker than what my colleagues have told me they have gotten answered.

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.

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

Sellsy

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.
Laurence Vaurie | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

We looked at both Hubspot and Zendesk. And we liked both of them. They had the right features and enough customization options to fit our use case scenario. But we liked the pricing and the flexibility of Zoho [CRM] more. The other really major factor for picking Zoho [CRM] for us was the fact that we were already using Zoho Desk and planned on using Zoho Campaigns. Integrations with those two [products were] the deciding factor.

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.

Return on Investment

Sellsy

  • It helped us look and operate professionally even though we had started out of our homes. That's huge.
James DeRosa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho CRM

  • Great ROI! I enrolled in Zoho One which is about 1/4 the cost of another CRM I was using with far more functionality.
  • Awesome features! I've been able to manage 95% of my digital needs in Zoho which is a great time (and money) saver
  • Learning curve pros & cons. I was able to get up and running pretty quickly but there are SO many features & options I feel it will take me a while to take advantage of all it's capabilities
