Alternatives to HubSpot CRM
Reviews of HubSpot CRM
Expensive, but great
Comments: Overall, Hubspot is great. It does the job, and I don't need to think about it - which is all I want. It's pricey, but you get more than what you pay for, and the integratios are always getting better. It does a really good job of being powerful while not being a mess like SalesForce - that alone makes it the easy choice for any startup.
Easy to set up, integrates with everything (from email to LinkedIn), trackers are great, AI functionality is helpful, and their support team is really helpful too.
Some of the reporting is lackluster, especially if your billing setup is non-standard or uses line items. Additionally, the Stripe integration for billing is sub-par - we cannot connect one hubspot account to multiple recurring subscriptions on stripe - so we had to pursue 3rd party integrations into a warehouse to reconcile stripe and hubspot data.
Alternatives Considered: Salesforce Sales Cloud
Reasons for Switching to HubSpot CRM: Way better organized and easier to use than anything else
HubSpot and Small Business Sales Growth
Comments: Overall, our experience was positive, and our sales team has no complaints. Again, we find our limiting factor is more on the growth of our service department. HubSpot, is a mobile friendly CRM that works great for a growing sales team. Additional marketing features can be added, but that is a separate cost, unless you have in house marketing talent.
HubSpot is great at tracking relationships at the individual level. These can be tracked from prospect to conversion, and all related activity can be easily tracked and revisited. Dashboards can be setup to track meta data, but is limited in how it can be customized.
All of our dislikes in HubSpot are related to the service side. The sales side of this CRM is sufficient or better to other CRM's, but is limited in customizable solutions. This will need to be discussed when considering your companies specific needs.
Reasons for Choosing HubSpot CRM: Sugar CRM was ineffective for us, and was a legacy system I inherited. This was an overall disappointment for our team, so the strategic decision was made to move to HubSpot to better enable our sales team.
Switched From: SugarCRM
Reasons for Switching to HubSpot CRM: The marketing integration was a recommendation of the marketing company we partnered with for inbound leads. The lead generation did not pan out, but this was not fault of HubSpot.
Complicated set up, Payment subscription tricked us into an annual contract.
I was looking for a tool to make my CRM easier, but Hubspot made it more complicated. It smarts that they tricked me into paying them $35 a month for a whole year.
If you are a large company with a dedicated developing team, this product may be a lot more than you need.
It looked nice. I was excited about other features I had access to but never got to set up. Such has an ai bot for our website.
#1) I thought I was ordering a monthly subscription, due to their wording of the service. However, Its an annual subscription that you pay for monthly. It is impossible to get out of the contract. We will be paying $35 a month until we pay off the subscription while not using the product. #2) The trial features lead you to subscribe, so you really can't trial the features that you want to try. #3) Setup is complicated and distracting. It's difficult to know if you have completed a step before the setup tool prompts you in another direction. #4) Duplicate emails, notifications all over the place, Unclear wording to set up, so its easy to get confused. #5)Customer Service is trained to lead you towards "Hubspot University" But after spending several hours with set up, I needed to get back to my work, and didn't have extra hours to go to the University. #6) For more than one tool, I was urged to hire a developer to use Hubspot. Maybe thats normal for big companies, but not for mine.
Alternatives Considered: Google Workspace
Reasons for Switching to HubSpot CRM: I tried to explore outside of the box. Everything else I use is Google related. For now, I am sticking to Google Workspace.
Very powerful and useful tool, but could benefit from some cleaning
Comments: Used it nearly every day for over 2 years. Very easy once you get to know it and are able to work around its quirks. Occasionally goes rogue and connections break however there are several industry experts who can fix it with relative ease. When it’s working, it is incredible and for the cost, overall pretty good
The level of customization was extremely granular and nearly every aspect could be specifically tailored to my organization. Mostly intuitive to use and houses the capability to bring most business functions in house on a central dashboard.
At times the platform can be very glitchy. Is prone to small bugs (names switching, phone numbers/files/titles getting corrupted, occasional brief outages). While these things are not the biggest inconvenience they can pile on if not cleaned up or rectified immediately and can result in a slightly skewed database. The system is also not necessarily independently intelligent and capable of recognizing slight variances, dupes etc, making most things a manual process.
Alternatives Considered: Salesforce Platform
Reasons for Switching to HubSpot CRM: Hubspot was cheaper than salesforce and offered more customizable options for a small company
Great free version. VERY expensive after that.
Comments: It has been great. I'm just afraid to get started with it because the price as you grow in your needs is TERRIBLE.
Good free version. Good user-friendly interface.
Once you get beyond the basics the price EXPLODES. Just too expensive. Try odoo or Active Campaign.
