Evaluating CRM Applications

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

I’ve been slowly keeping my eyes open for a CRM package which I can use to keep track of all my contacts for Giving Sports and Giving Square. I’m really amazed at how quickly keeping track of sales contacts can get out of hand. Not to mention how easy it is to have the follow up with these contacts fall through the cracks.

Today I came across a blog post on the Google Apps blog about their App Marketplace being 6 months old now. In their list they included a link to a CRM application. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to look into the various CRM applications. Especially since I LOVE using Google Apps and do so for all of my domains. So, I was interested to see what CRM applications were out there that I could use with my existing Google Apps accounts. Not to mention potential integration with my emails, docs, etc.

So far I’ve narrowed my selection down to these 3 CRM Google Apps:
Insightly – Free to signup for the CRM. I’m still trying to figure out when they’re going to charge me.
Zoho CRM – Free CRM for 3 users
Applane CRM – Free CRM for 2 users

Have any of you used any of these applications? I’d love to hear people’s experiences with any of them. I’ll let you know which I decide to use and likely a writeup of my experience with it.
