Best CRM for under $100/user...or $60/user… or $30 … or $15

The frustrating thing with Insightly is that if you make a change in the automation or the configuration and it does not work out well, you have to go back and change the whole thing from scratch. Freshsales is a breath of fresh air for anyone that does not have 100 hours to configure endless rules and add ons just to get up and running. It let’s us focus on our customers -- not the CRM. With Freshsales, the contacts are updated without constant management and I can focus on developing the team and the product offering.


What makes Freshsales a better alternative to Insightly? Let’s look at some facts.

Contact Management

Both Freshsales and Insightly have lead to contact and account conversion. But what Insightly lacks is the ability to reduce manual data entry -- the pressing problem for most sales reps.

With the auto profile enrichment feature, Freshsales automatically enriches lead, contact and account profiles with information from social.

Insightly does not provide support to customers on their free plan. You have to upgrade to a paying plan to get email support (no phone or chat support provided), which could lead to annoyance when dealing with bigger issues (back and forth of emails).

Freshsales provides free email, phone and chat support right from day one, for any plan.
