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.
Really Simple Systems is an all-in-one CRM for sales, service, and marketing teams. This easy, user-friendly system enables productivity and helps users build long-lasting relationships, save time, and drive more sales. The comprehensive platform has features for sales, marketing, and customer service. It’s an affordable CRM with a free version for up to two users.

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.
Really Simple Systems (RSS) has a clean and straightforward design that’s easy to navigate. It’s not as intuitive as some other systems in its price range, such as Zoho CRM. But the company offers an exceptional level of support--both human and online. When you open the CRM, each screen offers a question mark icon. With just a click, you get an explanation of the current page’s function. There is also live chat, introductory videos, webinars, and a Customer Support Hub.

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.
Our customer support is totally free of charge and you'll find lots of self-service resources so you can get the most from your CRM. Our integrated CRM and marketing solution lets you build campaigns and send emails directly from your CRM, using your data to personalize and segment.

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.
Really Simple Systems is an easy-to-use cloud CRM system designed for small and mid-sized organizations, yet also perfect for larger teams. There’s a customizable Sales CRM, plus options for Marketing and Service tools and integrations - so everything is in one place, enabling great team collaboration and customer relationships that drive sales growth.
