Freshworks is a comprehensive marketing system that offers tight integrations with their help desk products and marketplace apps. But unless you're a small business focused solely on marketing, a lot of those features are just extra bloat. The key things you need to track, contacts and sales, Freshworks limits at every tier. If you have more than just 1,000 leads, you're lumped into a "large team" category paying a premium each month.
Less Annoying CRM doesn't gatekeep your business with feature limits. Designed to be as easy to use as possible, LACRM has only the features you need, with no arbitrary usage limits. Instead of paying for all the might-use-someday features, just pay for the will-use-today tools.
"We started using Less Annoying CRM many years ago when we were looking for an affordable 'less fussy' CRM to help with managing our small business contacts. We did not need all of the bells and whistles charged by the much bigger companies, that we would have paid for but not used. This company did exactly that, at a very affordable price."
As a marketing-optimized CRM, Freshworks is powerful for businesses focused on marketing. However, it also means that their core relationship tracking functionality revolves around email marketing and landing pages. This leaves teams not focused on marketing saddled with extra features, and complicated ways to accomplish basic tasks.
LACRM pares relationship management down to the core things you would need to manage: your contacts and workflows, with no limits. Add as many contacts as you want, track as many processes as you see fit. Less Annoying CRM is built to scale with your business, without any of the fluff you don't need.
"My last contact manager was powerful, full-blown...and a support nightmare. I just wanted a reliable package to manage info on my contacts. LACRM delivered."
No more paying per support call, or only getting support if you're on a specific price tier (you'll need to be on Freshworks' $149/user Enterprise tier to qualify for all their support tools). Less Annoying CRM has the highest-rated customer service in the industry because we're a small business that knows how important it is to get answers quickly.
No catch here -- everyone at Less Annoying CRM gets free phone and email customer support, always.
"After spending hours with big companies, waiting to get help, answers or support in a crunch time, Less Annoying CRM feels like fresh air. If they don't actually answer the phone (rare) when I call, they get back to me right away and always make me feel like a priority customer even though I'm sure we are one of their smaller agencies."
