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.
YetiForce is a free, open-source Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Its intuitive, flexible, and customizable features have made it the ideal solution for many businesses. As an open system, you can build out the custom solution you need with a little technical know-how. The platform is continuously being improved by the enthusiastic Yetiforce community of developers. If you need hosting and support, it's available for a fee beginning at US$ 61/month.

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.
From the outset, YetiForce has pursued a philosophy of 'ease of use.' The community and team have developed a set of features that work together seamlessly and intuitively. The system is continuously refined by users. YetiForce's clients are offered a unique opportunity to direct the development of their software. Whenever a client orders a new feature for Yetiforce, it's made available to all users for free, assuming it meets quality assurance measures. Yetiforce users have a flexible, ever-growing system that adapts to the user. You also have control over which modules and features you add, ensuring the platform is not more complex than you need. Yetiforce is an open platform, however. Unless you have a tech-savvy team or are willing to pay for Yetiforce support, you may find the CRM is too much work to operate and maintain.

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.
You can integrate with SMS, telephony, email, and social media to manage all your communications from one platform. All the data from these channels flows back to the contact record, ensuring you have a detailed profile without the nuisance of data entry.

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.
YetiForce allows administrators to customize their dashboard to show modules such as time control, calendars, tickets and leads. Administrators can also change the visibility of specific widgets for different users and add custom widgets with filters. Yetiforce features a built-in email module that helps users send and receive mail directly. Users can also link emails to contacts, leads, accounts, partners, competitors and various processes and sub-processes.
