Nutshell CRM is the best software for keeping all your activities and notes in one place!

Nutshell CRM is great if you are a super-busy person. On one hand, the reminder functions and ease of use are amazing for busy individuals such as me. On the other hand, Nutshell is less appropriate for me when I need to send large attachments with an email as that is something I am seeing a need for more and more each day!

We refer our partners to Nutshell CRM often so they can store all of their client and potential client information in one place. It has been a great tool for us to grow our relationships with prospective customers. It is a great way to stay organized with working on a team where you will receive callbacks or work together to gain business.

I think Nutshell CRM would be a better fit for a more retail environment. Construction is a long game and I don't think some of the functionality is catered to that type of environment. Nutshell IS great at setting up whatever pipelines your company needs in its process and customizing each phase of those pipelines. The reports are also really easy to navigate and customize. Any salesperson can see exactly where they are and how they should move forward. I also like that it can sync with your calendar and email. That can work well for a salesperson and make them more efficient.

Nutshell is a well built, visually pleasing CRM, not without cost and flaws.

I think Nutshell is well suited for companies that are more 1- or 2-man operations, working from home situations. I think for us, it was a better value to just buy a license at a one time fee, and be done with it. The never-ending monthly charges were exhausting.

Nutshell: one of the best CRMs available

Great for small to medium-sized teams, without having to manage the system and always mess with it (like Salesforce). I really can't think of any reason why *not* to use Nutshell other than having a very large team with many territories and sales restrictions. Implementations like that are doable on Nutshell, but probably require more administrative handling and more time to devote (probably not unlike any other CRM tool).

Nutshell is well-suited for small to mid-sized organizations who need a robust and straightforward CRM, but don't want to spend weeks setting up, configuring, and maintaining a system like SalesForce. I've found that we've been able to do everything we need to do (and more) with Nutshell, and I continue to find new features being added regularly to enhance an already great product.

In a Nutshell.... Why I love Nutshell CRM!

This can be used for different industries, healthcare, IT, retail or any company with a customer service line, big or small.
if i had to ask, i would say "Do you have any type of filing system that you use?" "anything where you are keeping track of personal/ business information." Do you need access to information on a day to day basis?
If they do , then this can be used , especially if you need to keep track of the numbers; we like how we can see if are things going up or down.

In my evaluation and selection of Nutshell, I was drawn in by the fact that it straddles the gap between overly-simple and overly-complex. It has a configurable sales process and some great features, yet it is pretty simple to use and understand. The alternatives of MSCRM and SalesForce throw so many features at you that are difficult to configure. Nutshell seems to live in the "good enough without being overly complicated" space.
