BENEFIT ANALYSIS How to convert leads and keep customers when entrepreneurs cannot afford CRM solutions offered by major software companies Many small and medium enterprises are still using a combination of Excel spreadsheets, Outlook (or other email clients) with QuickBooks (or similar accounting software) to manage their business processes. They then add a WordPress or DIY CMS website and try to connect them and this is where problems begin. When googling “CRM” the search results will probably return the following companies: SalesForce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, SAP, Oracle Netsuite, Zoho, Odoo, etc… Most of these companies have more than 15-25 years of building legacy systems and they are now offering lighter versions on the cloud. They may offer you attractive packages starting around $99/user/month (payable per year). You may need 10+ users/vendors, more than 100 customers and another module or API to connect your shopping cart or your emails. You will definitely need support, training, security, backups, upgrades and more. With all the bells and whistles you may have to add an extra $10k to $50k which will be recurring every year. You will not be buying but renting your software on an annual subscription basis, not to mention the painful learning curve for you and your team. At Quick Social we discuss your needs and develop an intelligent CMS website platform (SEO/SMO ready) for you to manage and eventually develop into a full online business process management solution with an a la carte B2B/B2C e-commerce, ERP, CRM, HR, etc. The good news is that your new website will be built for you (no learning curve) on the latest technology and it will cost only a fraction of what big brothers are charging. Apart from the hosting, maintenance and technical support there will not be any recurring yearly subscription fee or percentage taken per transaction. Want to see our prices or schedule a demo?
