Pipedrive vs. Less Annoying CRM

We are a top alternative to Pipedrive

Three key takeaways

LACRM is easier to use: our system is simpler and our support is better.
Both systems can manage your contacts and workflow processes.
Pipedrive is focused on processes and sales, while LACRM is relationship-centered.

Overview

Pipedrive and LACRM offer many of the same features. Both CRMs will store your contacts, track events and tasks, and manage your workflows. What sets these two CRMs apart from each other? Pipedrive is almost entirely focused on tracking sales with pipelines, while LACRM is centered around your contacts and companies. We understand that running a small business depends on more than just sales: it's about your everyday conversations with people, staying on top of events and not letting anything slip through the cracks.

LACRM prioritizes being user-friendly. We want you to focus on growing your business, so we trimmed out features that can make a CRM harder to use. That way, you can hit the ground running with our software.

Pipedrive uses horizontal pipelines that are visually appealing and work well for users with workflows centered around moving leads between statuses. However, if there are a lot of leads in one status of the pipeline, Pipedrive's pipelines can become unwieldy. LACRM's pipelines are designed better for users who store information, such as product types ordered or date joined, in their pipelines because we display these details more prominently both on individual leads and in our pipeline report.

In the end, you can boil it down to this: LACRM is a better option for users who need something simple that is designed to specifically address the needs of a small business, while Pipedrive would be best for someone who prioritizes sales and process tracking.

It has all the functionality I want without a lot of flaky widgety stuff I don't care about and which doesn't help me. I've been in sales for nearly 30 years, and somebody at LACRM knows exactly how I work and designed a tool to support my efforts.

This CRM does the basics so well. Easy to learn (literally 5 minutes to start) and then just follow the main dashboard for what you need. We run a Team of 7 people and each member can subscribe themselves for the low monthly fee. We have tried other more popular (read: more complicated) CRM's and found them to be too difficult, too long learning curve, and too feature laden to be of real value. Most Realtors simply will not use 90% of the features they offer.
