Overall Satisfaction with Nutshell CRM

Nutshell is used by each office as his/her CRM. It's great so there's a record (and report as needed) of contact with prospects and clients.
  • Ties in social media without my input
  • Easy reports
  • Great dashboard with simple filters
  • Email integration seems nice but hard to "undo".
  • Web search to find a contacts picture doesn't work.
  • I wish it had notifications via Chrome for me to do list and contact prospects.
  • Positive ROI due to low costs, easy access (via web and app)
  • For me, it's better than a spreadsheet (cheap) and no need for bells and whistles of Salesforce (expensive).
  • I can share data with peers easily.
My understanding is HubSpot CRM is cheap and strength is in marketing/blogs, etc. Nutshell CRM is easy to use and powerful tracking reports.
Nutshell CRM is great for a small office or self-employed business. I LOVE the blind carbon copy feature so I can see contact with Contacts. Pricing is very affordable.

Using Nutshell CRM

6 - Each Consultant manages his/her leads, contact, etc. There is also an admin who assists with report, imports, etc
2 - Our general manager supports and one "power user" however we reach out to Nutshell directly as needed
  • New sales growth
  • Client retension
  • Forecasting
  • Evaluate contact history and measure client's proactive communication with us
  • Integrate email and replace Mailchimp
This is perfect for a small business / Home based business with SaaS. Nutshell constantly adds new features and the price is much better than more robust software like Salesforce.

Evaluating Nutshell and Competitors

Yes - Migrated from spreadsheets
  • Price
  • Product Features
We evaluated multiple SaaS options, this one was easy to use
I would have evaluated customer service however I found this very good with Nutshell. Also, I would check how often they go down.

Nutshell Implementation

Implementation is difficult everytime but this was relatively simple due to the small amount of data we moved
  • Moving data, importing spreadsheets- it takes time to ramp up
