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.
OrangeCRM is a modular CRM. On top of typical CRM functions, you have a choice of twelve different modules, such as banking, events, and admin. You pay for the features you need, reducing cost and complexity in the long run. However, it is an enterprise-level solution with a price to match, with the Essentials package beginning at US$ 995/month. That includes modules for Customer, Fulfillment, Banking, 3rd Party Email Services, and a dedicated technical specialist. You get a 60-day money-back guarantee when you subscribe to OrangeCRM.

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.
Maximizer CRM has been around for three decades and it shows. Many users describe the interface as dated, and it lacks some of the drag-and-drop functionality we’ve come to associate with cloud-based software. The home screen is busy and customizing Maximizer is more difficult than it needs to be. As far as CRMs go, Maximizer CRM is in the middle of the pack for ease of use.
