Salesforce CRM

Salesforce is often regarded as one of the most popular CRM platforms available. This mammoth platform has a seemingly endless amount of solutions for marketing, IT, analytics, commerce, customer service, and more. It boasts a scalable platform and a user-friendly interface that’s easy to adopt, and many customers agree that it’s simpler to integrate than Zoho.

What’s Good About Salesforce CRM

  • Great customer service with various online and in-person training.
  • Hundreds of third-party integrations and software partners
  • Highly customizable
  • Cloud-based platform

What Needs Improvement

  • More expensive than Zoho or Veloxity. The entry-level edition is almost twice as expensive as Zoho and three times more expensive than Veloxity.
  • No free edition
  • 24/7 customer support only available on higher tiers. Salesforce may not be suitable for small business owners who don’t have any experience with similar platforms. However, there are loads of helpful resources and training tools available to help customers learn the product and find the answers they are looking for.

How Much Does Salesforce Cost? 

  • Essentials Edition – $25/mo/user 
  • Professional Edition – $75/mo/user
  • Enterprise Edition  – $150/mo/user
  • Unlimited Edition – $300/mo/user

What’s Good About Zoho CRM

  • Long list of features and third-party integrations
  • Gamification features
  • Various Zoho apps
  • Really helpful email marketing features

What Needs Improvement

  • Limited features on cheaper editions: While Zoho CRM is designed with small–midsize business needs in mind, its budget editions have limited features and functionality that might not be suitable for many users. (For example, the workflow automation feature is only available starting at the Professional Edition.)
  • Customer service: Many customers have complained that Zoho customer support isn’t as straightforward as it should be, and many have had to be transferred to multiple departments or wait on hold for long periods before getting anyone on the phone.

How Much Does Zoho Cost? 

  • Free Edition – $0/mo/user (up to three users)
  • Standard Edition – $14/mo/user
  • Professional Edition – $23/mo/user
  • Enterprise Edition – $40/mo/user
