I first learned about Insightly in researching CRMs for the furniture company, I was heading up marketing and assisting training new sales reps. Teaching old dogs new tricks is no simple task in sales and furniture sales, it's even more apparent. Most seasoned sales reps are anti-computer, so I needed a CRM that was easy to use and simple to reference. Insightly did the trick. I tried several before landing on Insightly. Some have more features but added complications that frustrated my test subjects. Our sales team needed a simple solution to capture customer info and the products they were interested in. The integration with our Gmail powered email service was the biggest selling point. I added it to our account, and everyone was able to add emails sent to the customer directly into the captured customer info in Insightly, so if that rep was to leave, I could reassign that lead to another rep. This came in handy and keeping the customer happy and making the transition to another sales rep seamless. I do wish the follow-up process was more hands off but for the price, it's worth that step's absence. Plus, your sales team should be reviewing their leads on a daily basis anyways, right? You can even test out Insightly with three free accounts and most of the features for free. I think that's pretty awesome as most companies don't let you use it without harassing you mercilessly until you decide to keep it or pass. I used Insightly for 2 months before handing off to the team of 300+ sales reps. And they liked it As with any new procedure, there is some training involved. But sales reps who are organized can see the benefits and adapt rather quickly. I was really surprised at how easy it was to get them to use it. I normally had to fight everyone to get them to use it. But that Google App integration puts it just a click away when anyone within the company was browsing the corporate intranet page I built. Younger sales teams may pose a greater demand on more robust CRMs with all kinds of features. But if you're looking for simplicity and are using the Google Apps for Work platform, I recommend giving Insightly a shot.
My first impression with Dynamics CRM about three years ago was not great. I've used many of the popular CRM products reviewed on this site, and there are many great solutions out there. If your company has adopted Microsoft Cloud products like Office 365, the Windows operating system, or other elements of the Dynamics business application family, Dynamics CRM Online is a great option for small businesses and large enterprises, For full disclosure, I work for a Dynamics CRM partner which also offers other Microsoft products. A few years ago when I first tried it out, I wasn't at all impressed when I tried their v4.0 product. I have had my frustrations with Microsoft products, and I have expressed my views on them. I've really been impressed how much has changed over the past few years, to make it easy for sales, customer service and marketing professionals to track support cases, opportunities, client interactions and generate reports.
Pros : - Dynamics CRM Online isn't just a "watered down" version of the Microsoft solution, it is very powerful and offers a really flexible, user friendly experience. - There are a number of ways you can customize MS CRM Online for other business processes beyond CRM - HR, memberships, volunteers, events, and there are quite a few professional/amateur sports associations and teams who have bought Microsoft CRM because of how much the solution can be tailored to different use cases. - Microsoft is evolving to make their products compatible with different device platforms, and with apps for iOS and Android, and browser flexibility improving all the time, times are changing. - There are a number of ISV solutions, such as Click Dimensions, The Portal Connector and InsideView which can add a lot of value to Dynamics CRM for marketing, self-serve customer portals to Dynamics CRM. There are a lot of integrations with other Microsoft apps like PowerBI, OneNote, and Dynamics AX, but that's to be expected. You can find many addons
Cons : As a Canadian user, I don't have access to Cortana. I'm not sure how much I'd use it to be honest, but watching some of the promotional videos it seems to be pretty cool. There seems to be a compatibility issue between the new Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10, but Microsoft will likely get that addressed really soon. The CRM search function has improved, how you can search across the entire system from a central place. Sometimes I have you looked for a contact I knew is in the system I haven't been able to find as easily as I should. No software is without its quirks, but Dynamics CRM has evolved a great deal, and has gained a lot of marketshare in the process.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 is a large program and has many moving parts, which do require some configuration and effort to get working properly on premises. The online version should appeal to small and even medium-sized businesses with limited IT resources. Tight integration with Microsoft Office and other Microsoft offerings should make this a very appealing release for any organization looking to streamline their sales and marketing automation.More about Microsoft Dynamics CRM

I've been quite a happy Insightly user for the past few years. Lately, I had a growing amount of reminders that didn't get sent to my email. I've missed a few critical milestones and lost a few deals because of that. I just didn't get reminder for tasks I managed at Insightly. So I approached Insightly customer support. Never got them to reply sooner than 48 hours post sending the ticket message, and I keep getting replies saying (in short): we can't help you! CRM is such an important aspect of business management, and I can't live with such an attitude. Am now actively looking for an alternative, although I like Insightly approach to CRM and acknowledge the time and effort it will most likely take to make the transition. Even so, can't work that way anymore. Truly am sad to say, I Would not recommend Insightly to anyone.More about Insightly
