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.
vСita is an all-in-one customer service and business management software designed for service providers, specifically SMBs and professionals such as lawyers, accountants, educators, consultants, fitness trainers, coaches, photographers, among others. The cloud solution combines essential tools to help users manage their everyday business activities and operations such as calendar and online scheduling, client portal, client management, billing and invoicing, lead generation, and email and SMS marketing. With vcita, you get in one platform functionalities to handle CRM, marketing, booking, appointment and scheduling, client communication, online payment, and more.

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.
vCita has an intuitive interface, making it easy to keep client notes, appointments, invoices, and payment history in one place. Plus, the mobile version isn’t just an afterthought. vCita has taken care to ensure you get a fully functional CRM in the palm of your hand. However, users struggle with the lack of customer support and overall improvements to the platform. Updates are mostly cosmetic, with few enrichments to the set of features. vCita also has few integrations unless you subscribe to their Platinum Plan. It’s best to make use of their free-trial and ensure vCita CRM has the functionality you require in-house.

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.
Customer support is highly dependent on your package. The Essentials package offers email support, the Business package comes with email and phone support, and the Platinum package features priority support. On the bright side, there are a few high-quality video tutorials available on YouTube, a well-organized FAQ section, and a dedicated blog that offers a variety of topics.

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.
