Overview

Bitrix24 is a full-featured CRM platform with a free version for unlimited users. It offers an extensive set of tools for sales, service, and marketing. As such, Bitrix24 can feel large and unwieldy to use--the interface is crowded with features. This presents a steep learning curve, and training will be necessary. However, few vendors offer such a full sweep of CRM features at such a great price.
Five CRM is for telemarketing businesses and any large-scale outbound call center. The “five” in FIVE CRM refers to its core features: telesales, telemarketing, lead generation, lead management, and account management. It’s one of the best call center CRMs on the market, with over 30 years of experience. It also has built-in email marketing features, to warm up prospects and eliminate cold-calling.

Ease of use

Bitrix24 specializes in team management. After creating an account, you can invite your staff to the platform, assign tasks and see each other's progress on a multifunctional dashboard. The dashboard and overall layout of the CRM can be confusing, however. One of the particular design failings is you cannot remove options--you can only add more, creating a crowded UI.
FIVE CRM offers customizable agent interfaces, built around each agent’s role and preferences. It has advanced dialing features, such as filterable call lists, automated dialing, and call-back features. You can also warm up your audience first with the inbuilt mass email tool. Customer conversations are recorded and stored for backup.

Support

The Bitrix24 knowledge database is extensive, and you can answer most of your questions there. The articles are divided by topics and creation date, so it is easy to navigate. The blog also provides valuable insights on getting the most out of Bitrix24. Bitrix24 even has its own YouTube channel with tutorials on CRM use. Training courses for developers and administrators are available. And if you still can't find an answer to your questions, they offer email support.
n particular I have found Five CRM to be best in class for 1) Live support both on instant chat and phone - The support team always go above and beyond to help us out 2) Ability to manipulate live data (I don't get why other CRMs don't have the features Five CRM do)

Who is it for?

Bitrix24 offers a rich feature set that can meet the needs of businesses of every size and industry. However, smaller organizations may find themselves overwhelmed by too many features. You can make use of the free version or set up a free trial of their paid plans to see if it's the right fit for you.
Five CRM is a very customizable and straightforward CRM built for call centers. It offers all the tools a telemarketer agent needs for success, including targeted call lists, automated dialing, and AI script prompts. Every call is recorded for quality assurance and customer backup. Plus there’s unlimited storage and a bulk email feature. It’s an advanced, and well-rounded sales and telesales solution.
