Pros and Cons

  • Customer Service is EXCELLENT! Fast response time, professional, and helpful.
  • Platform is very intuitive and love the FREE WEBINARS they offer. Really Simple Systems gave us some ideas of how to use their product that we hadn't thought of ourselves.
  • Very reasonably priced even at the Enterprise level, which we have chosen for our company.
  • Add calendar so everything is inside one platform.

Pros and Cons

  • Mass-emailing is pretty easy.
  • Adding tasks to a prospect's account is easy. That task automatically becomes part of a list of historical activities when it is completed. That's a far better system than our previous CRM had.
  • I love that it easily categorizes accounts by company instead of by person. You can still search and do things by person. But we market to companies, and companies add/lose employees all the time. It's great to have a CRM organized by company as its default/best way to organize accounts.
  • Wish I could sort by tags a bit easier. I manage this by using their Reports feature. But I would like to assign the same task to a list of prospects with the same tag, and the only way I can do that is to either add the task one-by-one or export a report with all the accounts with that tag, add the task in excel, and then import it. Not ideal.

Pros and Cons

  • I find Really Simple Systems very user friendly, it truly is 'really simple' but very comprehensive and provides all that one needs to have a complete customer relational database for my business.
  • The Webinar trainings are very helpful and provide detailed information to utilize all the aspects of the program to its potential.
  • Phone support is very helpful and friendly.
  • The only thing I would like to see is integration with Quckbooks.

Pros and Cons

  • You the user are totally in control of the system so even now if we want to generate a new report or record a different set of info we can change and not wait for a call centre to come back to us in many weeks time.
  • The help and support desk is EXCELLENT. When I email them I get an answer normally within one hour. They are spot on with the help but also with their advice about the best way to achieve what we are trying to achieve.
  • The ability to change and produce reports that we as a business want and not simply having to work around a set of templates.
  • It would be great if one could add field tasks and activities from the opportunity and it would be logged against that task and activity rather than having to go back out of the opportunity and then add it as a task or activity and having to add the name and opportunity etc. details.

Pros and Cons

  • The after-sales support is exceptional. Very efficient responses and quick solutions. Friendly.
  • Easy to set up.
  • It took quite a while to set up (with only 1 person doing it alongside their regular job) so it's worth scheduling this properly.

Pros and Cons

  • Capturing customer contact information and documents that can be shared across users within our group
  • Identifying tasks needed for each client and assigning due dates. These task due dates also integrate with Google Calendar, which is very helpful.
  • They are a UK company. This becomes evident in some annoying little ways, such as when the British Pound Symbol next to dollar amounts shows instead of the dollar sign. Also when adding tasks to Google Calendar they default to GMT instead of the user's time zone.
  • Other quirks come up as well, like when marking a task completed it requires a contact date to save, which is not necessarily applicable.

Pros and Cons

  • Running reports works well.
  • It is easy to compile the information I am looking for.
  • The feedback information on a mass email is great. Information is automatically sent to the client list (bounce backs as an example).
  • It is a little difficult learning the system for sending emails. I took me a couple of tries to understand the format and how to send it. Some of my photos don't like to drag into the format.

Pros and Cons

  • It's very simple to use and out of the box.
  • It is incredibly cheap compared to other CRM systems on the market.
  • They have fantastic customer service.
  • It isn't completely specified to what we do, but that is fine given that it is an "out of the box" system.
  • No other cons.

Pros and Cons

  • Simple easy to use campaign designer. Campaigns are easy to build and there is scope to add in your own images and detail.
  • Campaigns can be sent to specific groups of people allowing us to target certain industries or areas.
  • Running reports are very useful.
  • The database can be customised so that only information you wish to capture is entered into the database.
  • Entering the correct criteria to run a report can be tricky.
  • Adding contacts to the database can be a slow process as there are so many fields to fill in.
