CRM Software?

(HenryBraxton) #1

Hi, I plan a fairly large annual event that requires scheduling volunteers, vendors, etc. Until now we’ve used a combo of google docs to manage the information but I think we need something with a bit more firepower.

I’ve been looking at CRMs like Salesforce, but it’s $$$. Do you have any suggestions for something that might work better than a patchwork of free apps that won’t break the bank like Salesforce?

Hi Henry, good question. You might be interested in this article I wrote about CRM systems for event organisers:

Pipedrive is quite ‘light’ and cost effective. I haven’t used it in an events context however (more traditional sales).

Might be coming late to the chat. But I would suggest HubSpot free CRM.
Painless to use and free.

Thanks for the suggestion @Ricardo_Molina I discovered recently that HubSpot does a free option. What restrictions does it have?

We use Hubspot. The free version only allows you to create one sales pipeline, which is quite restrictive. Really like the software though.

Ah I see. And what’s the pricing like if you want to have more pipelines?

It’s £42 per month for the Starter package, which is too much for us as a small business :cry:
