The Prophet CRM’s sales automation allows your teams to make sales better and more efficiently by reducing repetitive tasks and notifying sales when to follow up. Prophet workflows execute specific Outlook activities automatically at designated sales stages. This saves a lot of time.

Things to Consider Before Investing in a CRM Software

Less Annoying CRM (for Small Businesses): Review

What is Less Annoying CRM?

This aptly-named Less Annoying Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software is a solution that meets the needs of small businesses in particular. This CRM focuses on ease-of-use, free customer report, high quality security, cloud-based deployment, and a simple configuration and operation.

Intended Users

This CRM is a simple contact management solution for Small Business owners who are looking for a cloud CRM with mobility, reasonable pricing, and features that are designed specifically for small businesses.

Platforms

Setup of Less Annoying CRM can be completed in minutes, because this software is:

  • Cloud-based / Web
  • Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000
  • Mac OS
  • Web Browser (OS agnostic)
  • Mobile (Access)

Mobile

Less Annoying CRM is completely web-based. You can use it and access from any computer, smartphone, and tablet worldwide. All of the data backups, security, and software updates are handled by the company so you don’t have to be bothered by the desktop or mobile updating process anymore.

Features

Less Annoying CRM allows users to consolidate all of their customer information into a single, web/cloud-based platform, where the information is accessible to the entire company or team.

Among the features are applications for contact manage and sales force automation (SFA). Module include:

  • Lead Tracking
  • Task Management
  • Notetaking
  • Calendars

There are a range of configuration options to choose from that will allow the users to customize their sales process in order to align this software to their unique business processes and industry needs. There is no coding required, either!

The main feature list of this CRM includes:

Contact Management

With contact management, you have a central, cloud-based location that can store all of your contact, client, and customer information. From a simple screen, you can check out pipeline information related to the contact as well as notes, files, and events. In addition, there is a search feature so you won’t have to scroll to find your contact again.

Calendar and Tasks

Rather than jumping back and forth through different softwares and applications, this CRM offers a single location for your calendar and tasks. Built into the CRM directly, this feature allows you to set up a sharing feature with other users/team members at your business, so that everyone can stay on the same page regarding daily agendas and customer follow-ups.

You can sync this calendar with Google Calendar as well, so you can have all of this information in your pocket and easily accessible from your smartphone.

Leads and Pipelines

No business wants a lead to fall through the cracks — with Lead Report, this CRM shows you a simple report that is constantly up-to-date with a list of all leads in your pipeline. This includes the status of a lead, priority of a lead, contact information, and any notes from the last conversation with them. You can also be sure that your team follows-up with your leads and make new sales and customers.

Easy Customization

With the simple price plan, you can add as many users for your business as you want with this CRM for only $10 per user / month.

Each user has their own login and password, and the administrator (you), decides who can have access to what. Whether you want everyone to share data or only have access to their own data, you can decide that for yourself.

Collaboration with Multiple Users

Since a lot of CRM’s don’t offer enough customization, you may be happy to know that this CRM gives you pretty much complete control. You don’t need IT experience either to get your software setup in minutes. Customer support is also there to help you customize and to fit the CRM to your specific needs.

Cloud Hosting

The CRM is web-based and hosted in the cloud, which is great for accessing it from your computer, smartphone, and/or tablet.

You can also take advantage of the following features this CRM offers:

Security

This CRM offers the highest commercially-available encryption of 256-Bit Encryption to ensure users’ data security. The servers are hosted on Amazon’s infrastructure with multiple data backups kept off-site. This allows the information/files/data to be restored in case of a disaster.

Log Email Conversations

The email logging features makes it simple to log your emails into the CRM from any email provider. Simply BCC messages to a unique address that is set up for you by the CRM and you can get it logged automatically.

Easy Importing

Import your contacts into Less Annoying CRM with ease. From your spreadsheet or current system, you can upload them to your new cloud server seamlessly. If you need help with this process, Less Annoying customer support will run the import for you.

One-Click Report

If you want to export your own offline copy of your files or data, you can head to the Export Page and you will have a spreadsheet ready that features all of your notes, companies, and contacts. You own all of your data in your CRM.

Daily Agenda Emails

Every morning, you will receive an email which summarizes your daily tasks and agenda for the day. This means you don’t need to login to stay informed.

Always Backed Up

This CRM’s servers are hosted on Amazon’s industry-leading cloud infrastructure — and Less Annoying CRM keeps two different types of backups, which include copies stored off-site in case of a disaster.

Free Updates

Upgrades are automatically installed for you, so you don’t have to worry about paying for upgrades, hardware, or anything else. It is all done for you, free of charge.

Free Phone and Email Support

From your free trial to paid use of this CRM, you can contact customer support at any time via phone or email for assistance.

Plans & Pricing

Plans and pricing with Less Annoying CRM is actually one of the easiest we have come across.

$10 per user / month is the base pricing plan with this CRM.

There are unlimited contacts and no commitment on your part.

As their name Less Annoying implies, this company has tried to feature a less complex pricing structure — opting out of pricing tiers with usage limits, upfront payments, upsells, and long-term contracts, they actually make the process worth it because the fee is flat per user.

So, for $10, you can purchase one user per month — you can add users, remove users, or cancel your CRM at any time. They even suggest trying out their 30 day free trial (see below) first to make sure you like it and to learn how to use it before you begin to pay.

Free Trial

You can get a 30 day free trial of Less Annoying CRM at the following link: https://www.lessannoyingcrm.com/Signup.

If you are signed up with Google, you can click on the one-click sign up for this trial. Otherwise, you simply input your name, email, password, and number of users for the CRM. There is no obligation, the CRM is secure and private, there is no need for a credit card, and the trial offers you a full account with customer support.

Intended Users

Infusionsoft is intended for use by SMBs as well as larger businesses, depending on the plan you choose. The CRM software is the perfect size for small businesses in particular, where maintaining customer relationships and using automated marketing (included in this software) will make a potential difference in sales growth.

Platform

  • Online, SaaS, Web
  • Mobile

Infusionsoft Mobile

Infusionsoft has the added benefit of mobility from a variety of devices. You can manage contacts, automate marketing, from anywhere at any time. The features of this platform are geared towards small businesses on the go.

  • Upload, Edit, and Access Contact Information
  • Communicate with Customers
  • Add Tags to Trigger Automated Follow-Up and Campaigns
  • Create, View, and Complete Tasks

 

Features

While the Infusionsoft plans all include the CRM software — they also each focus on another software aspect such as sales, marketing, etc…

Focusing on the CRM features, Infusionsoft does a good job for Small Businesses. The customer relationship management included in this software is intended to keep your business organized as well as staying on top of customer communications.

Contact Management

Arguably the most important feature of a CRM software is contact management. This feature allows you to collect informational data regarding your leads and to organize your contacts so you can save yourself hours of work. You can manage their detailed individual records, upload, and store information on your laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

  • Contact Information
  • Task and Appointment History
  • Orders and Account Balance
  • Lead Score and Lead Source
  • Website Activity History
  • Interactions with your Brand

Data Management

For small businesses just starting out as well as larger businesses swimming in a sea of contacts and leads, Infusionsoft’s CRM claims to make it easier to speed up data management by simplifying the process and allowing for mobile, on-the-go features.

Some of the benefits of this feature includes:

  • Updating, Editing, Exporting, or Triggering Automation in Batches
  • Add Contacts on-the-go from your Mobile Device
  • Get Help Importing Data into the Platform
  • Automatically Check for Duplicate Records

Segmentation

This feature is important in a CRM and is the difference between sending the right message to the right people, or botching up your marketing intake data. With segmentation, if done correctly, you can use it to forge a stronger connection with new, potential, and existing customers with lists based on criteria such as:

  • Lead Score
  • Demographics
  • Email Clicks
  • Payment History
  • Purchases

Lead Scoring

Lead scoring is incredibly important in any business. With this CRM feature, you can spend time following up with potential and hot leads who are on the edge of becoming customers (and less time following up with those who will never buy). You can assign scores to each contact based on:

  • Demographics
  • Interactions
  • Behaviors

Task Management and Calendar Management

This feature of Infusionsoft offers users with the tools they need to simplify the chaotic nature of business management. This tool helps to prioritize, organize, and work through sales activities — all in a single location.

With it, you can:

  • Set Reminders for Tasks
  • Manage your Appointments
  • Link Tasks to Individual Contacts
  • Automatically Generate Tasks based on Contact Behavior
  • Streamline your Workday

Plans & Pricing

There are five different plans you can choose from by Infusionsoft. Each plan includes the CRM software — otherwise each plan includes different features and is intended for a different amount of customer support capacities and functions.

There are two steps to take when choosing a software plan with Infusionsoft. First, you choose a plan out of the five below. Then, you choose your “Kickstart” package (there are three options), which will help you to get started. A Kickstart package is required. The Kickstart package is a one time fee.

Choose your Kickstart Package

Note that the Kickstart package is a one time fee, and not a part of your annual or monthly billing.

Kickstart Lite

Price: $999 (one time fee)

This package is best for small or medium businesses that are looking for only the basic range of guidance from an Infusionsoft expert as they get started with their software. If you are good with technology, the Lite package is ideal because it saves you money but still makes the one time fee worth your while by offering you:

  • Free one-on-one work with your personal coach to identify the most effective strategy for your business
  • Launching a campaign to your list within the first two weeks, then you can take it from there.

Kickstart

Price: $1,999 (one time fee)

This Kickstart package is for businesses who require a bit more in-depth guidance by an expert in order to feel comfortable and get the most out of their Infusionsoft software. If you need extra help getting yourself started, this package is ideal.

  • Work one-on-one with your coach and identify an in-depth strategy for your business
  • Launch 3 campaigns to your list, then you can take it from there

Kickstart Pro

Price: $2,999 (one time fee)

The Pro package is an excellent investment for businesses who have an effective strategy in place. This plan is for those seeking an accelerated alternative to doing everything yourself — Infusionsoft’s in-house experts will set up the software for you so you can focus on your business and other priorities. This is truly an all-in-one package.

  • Customize the project scope in order to meet your unique business needs
  • Fully offload your implementation of a project to the experts
