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.
Vtiger is a customer relationship management system that helps businesses streamline operations on a single platform. This CRM assists with project management, automated tasks, record keeping, and general business processes. It's a central location where you and your team can collaborate, work, and track performance. Vtiger is a good all-in-one CRM solution for small businesses because it comes with a wide range of resources that can appeal to many customers. However, its user interface is somewhat unique and could present a steep learning curve for new 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.
Vtiger's usability is a bit of a mixed bag. Some features are very straightforward, while others are confusing or complex. Overall, the system suffers under the weight of too many tools and features. The UI tries to handle this with a nested interface; however, you may end up forgetting the hidden features exist. Take contacts, for example. In Vtiger, adding new contacts is a breeze: with only a few clicks, you can add someone to your CRM, complete with email, phone number, and name. Importing contacts, on the other hand, is not that easy. And let's face it, you are more likely to import your contacts than manually entering the details.

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.
Vtiger offers several free support resources. You can find extensive technical documentation online. There is also 24/7 email and chat support, though they are a little slow to respond. There is phone support for technical issues. If you’re in need of more personalized assistance on using the platform, you can hire one of Vtiger’s CRM experts through their kickstart program.

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.
Over 300,000 companies around the world use Vtiger CRM. The business takes pride in its ability to adapt to the needs of every industry, from freelancers to large enterprises.
