What will I actually be paying per year?

Annual billing is often tempting because it offers a per user price that is slightly lower than monthly billing. However, annual billing requires you to pay for a full year either in advance, or by the end of the service year. As such, the true cost of annual billing should factor in the entire year.

The prices bolded below are the total upfront cost for a full year, for the minimum number of users for that tier.

Really Simple Systems Starter

  • $14 per user per month
  • Because you are billed annually, your minimum upfront cost is 14 x 12 = $168 (for a single user)

Really Simple Systems Professional

  • $30 per user per month
  • Because you are billed annually, your minimum upfront cost is 30 x 12 = $360 (for a single user)

Really Simple Systems Enterprise

  • $46 per user per month
  • Because you are billed annually, your minimum upfront cost is 46 x 12 = $552 (for a single user)

When should I pay monthly instead of annually?

While there are many reasons why you would opt to pay monthly instead of annually (for example, the ability to switch CRMs whenever you want), one of the more straightforward reasons would be the duration of time you plan on using a CRM.

Listed below is the maximum duration of time you would need to use a CRM tier before it is more "worth it" to pay for a full year instead.

Really Simple Systems Starter

  • $18 per user per month (with a maximum of 3 users at this price)
  • This is 28.6% more expensive than the monthly price billed annually.
  • For a single user, you should opt for monthly billing if you plan on using Really Simple Systems Starter for fewer than 168 / 18 = ~9 months.

Really Simple Systems Professional

  • $38 per user per month (with a maximum of 3 users at this price)
  • This is 26.67% more expensive than the monthly price billed annually.

Really Simple Systems Enterprise

  • $55 per user per month (with a maximum of 3 users at this price)

What are the limitations of the free version of

Really Simple Systems

?

Many CRMs offer a free version of their software with severe feature limitations. While appealing to small businesses or solopreneurs, most free versions are simply marketing tools to introduce new users to a paid tier and are not designed to be scalable.

Really Simple System offers a free plan for 2 users with the following limitations:

  • 100 company records (but unlimited contacts)
  • 100MB of file storage
  • No email integration
  • No advanced reporting
  • No user permissions
  • Email support only
  • No option to add any of their separate add-ons individually

With these limitations in mind, Really Simple System's free plan is likely to only be enough for personal projects, or small teams working mostly with contacts only and have no marketing needs beyond basic contact management.
