Best Free SugarCRM Alternatives.

Best Free SugarCRM Alternatives.

Any way you slice it – SugarCRM is one of the best CRM solutions out there. I have only two objections with SugarCRM. Thirty five bucks per user per month to begin with is a bit steep. Second, free open source sounds good, unless you have no programming skills. That's when you realize that when paying $150-$250/hr for even minor modifications or integrating SugarCRM with other tools fastly finishs up with a huge bill.

The good news is there are many SugarCRM alternatives, including free ones. And I don't pupose other forks love vTiger or other free open source initiatives, love FatFreeCRM, which come with the same type of disadvatages as Sugar. Rather, these are alternatives that come shut to SugarCRM in terms of features and operates, but are either free (or better priced) or are easier to work with for a non-techie type.

Of course, there are a ton more CRMs out there but these three give a good thought what types of SugarCRM replacements are available. Overall Bitrix24 is probably the best free SugarCRM alternative out there, especially if you have 10+ salespeople, necessity mobile CRM, require on premise CRM and want to have access to the source code only, merely, solely in case. If you do a lot of social media marketing, social hearing and use Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn as sales tool, NimbleCRM is superior to SugarCRM in many ways. Finally Insightly is a good side of the road SugarCRM alternative for little sales teams (under 10 people) that don’t do social media marketing and don’t require all the powerful operates that Bitrix24 (or Sugar) offer.
