Overall Satisfaction with Freshsales

We use FreshSales as our CRM for the sales and customer success teams. We've also used it for basic email campaigns (1:many) updates and product marketing.
  • User friendly interface
  • Flexibility to add new fields to user records
  • Affordable
  • Persistent and pervasive down time
  • Lack of scalable integrations with data source (e.g., their Segment integration is barely functional and they won't improve it)
  • Slow and unhelpful customer service
  • Account management doesn't understand our business or what we're trying to accomplish
  • Email campaign feature is barely functional and only allows you to have 10 campaigns, even with the most expensive plan
  • Lead and contact records have gone missing and FreshSales is unable to recover data
  • Frustrated our entire Growth team
  • Wasted time and money
We selected FreshSales because we needed something cheaper and more user-friendly than Salesforce, but we're now in the process of switching to HubSpot because it gives you the best of both worlds - ease of use + scale and reliability.
If you're looking for an extremely cheap, bare-bones CRM that will house a few hundred contacts that you manually enter, FreshSales is probably a fine solution for you. If you're running a sales or customer success team with any sort of scale or sophistication, this system will be unable to support your needs. I used to be an advocate of FreshSales as a good starter CRM, but due to all of their issues with downtime and bugs - and the fact that they deleted over half of our user data (20,000+ records) - I would strongly recommend that you avoid this company and spend a little extra to get something reliable.
