A CRM For Small Businesses

There are a ton of CRMs out there, and if you’ve ever tried any of them, chances are you’ve had an annoying experience. Here’s what LACRM does do to be less annoying:
Built For Small Businesses
Less Annoying CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) is a straightforward CRM solution that caters to the needs of small businesses. It focuses on ease-of-use, transparent pricing and free customer support. With cloud-based deployment and simple configuration options, setup can be completed in minutes.
Offering applications for contact management and sales force automation (SFA), Less Annoying CRM allows businesses to consolidate all of their customer information in a single place, accessible to the entire team. Modules include lead tracking, notetaking, calendars and task management. A range of configuration options allows users to customize sales processes and lead definitions to best align with their own business processes and industry needs—no coding required.
Less Annoying CRM offers 256-bit encryption to ensure data security, and its servers are hosted on Amazon.com’s infrastructure with multiple data backups kept off site, allowing data to be restored in the event of a major disaster.
The flexibility is LACRM is our favorite element. It is easy to set up but it can also be easily tailored to any business. In fact, I have deployed it in both of my businesses. The integrations with Google GMail and MailChimp are also excellent.
LACRM creates a GMail contact for both the individual and also for the company. I know some businesses work with multiple people at the same client, but we work through individual relationships, so their approach creates some clutter in our Google Contacts file, which drives our phone contacts. It would be nice to have an option to enable or disable that part of the sync.
We have used a wide variety of CRM systems, including those highly touted by “the experts” and just can’t see how any of them beat out LACRM. They are all much less flexible, harder to set up and use, and more costly. LACRM should be at the top of your consideration list.
