Salesforce vs. Less Annoying CRM

We are a top alternative to Salesforce

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.
Salesforce offers extensive features, but requires involved setup.

Overview

Salesforce 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 CRMs apart from each other? Salesforce targets big businesses and offers significantly more features than LACRM, while LACRM was designed for small businesses and is more user-friendly. LACRM is customizable too, but we make some of the hard decisions for you. That way, you can jump right in and start using the CRM to grow your business.

The price point and complicated nature of Salesforce make clear that it is not specially designed for a small business. Setup in most cases requires a manager and an IT person, and perhaps even a Salesforce consultant to take full advantage of the features offered by its program. It's great for large companies with hundreds of employees using the system. On the other hand, LACRM was made with small businesses in mind every step of the way -- it's easy to use and doesn't clutter your CRM with features you don't need.

In the end, you can boil it down to this: LACRM is a better option for users who need something simple that they can use without weeks of training, while Salesforce would be best for someone who works at a large company and can take advantage of some of its advanced features, such as app creation.

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.
