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.
Nimble provides browser widget-based and mobile-based sales force automation and social CRM solutions for small and medium-sized organizations. The system automatically populates client profiles and interaction histories across a variety of popular platforms, including LinkedIn, from contact lists, email chats, and social media activity. Nimble has integrated social listening to keep client profiles up to date, in addition to contact and pipeline management tools such as deal tracking, task management, and notifications.

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.
Nimble is a rather simple CRM solution. Its web-based interface is quite clean and appealing, and it should not have a severe learning curve. The only complaint is that it isn't responsive,' which means that using Nimble on a tablet or phone isn't ideal. However, there is a decent iOS / Android app available that provides a lot of critical Nimble features to customers on the move..

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.
Nimble provides a number of methods to contact the staff in order to give the best service possible. First, they recommend watching Nimble's recorded demos on their YouTube channel. These are previous webinars held by our CEO Jon Ferrara, the Nimble specialist. Nimble invites you to join daily webinars with a limited number of participants after checking their YouTube channel. Besides, Nimble provides its customers with a forum, knowledge base, where you ask any question that disturbs you.

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.
Nimble connects thousands of small to mid-sized company teams that are effectively nurturing personal and business relationships across email, social networks, and over 90 cloud-based business tools. Nimble combines the benefits of traditional CRM, traditional contact management, social networking, sales intelligence, and marketing automation to create a strong relationship management platform that offers relationship insights wherever you work.
