Overview

Not every business needs a large software solution. Capsule has positioned itself as a stepping-stone for companies that don't require the complexity of a full-blown CRM system. It is a paired-down platform that will manage your contacts and boost sales performance--but not much else. If you need a CRM that also serves customer service and marketing teams, this isn't your CRM. But if all you need is a straightforward sales CRM with a great mobile app, Capsule CRM may be just the right fit. You can try their free version or a 30-day trial of the paid version to assess whether Capsule CRM covers your needs or not.
Agile CRM is a fully comprehensive platform that provides a wealth of sales, marketing, and customer service features. It can also help manage your day-to-day operations with contact management, workflow automation, and 360-degree customer profiles. It's more affordable than most CRM systems and offers a free subscription for up to ten users.

Ease of use

This cloud-based system combines easy-to-use sales tools and basic reporting capabilities. After you register, you get a login that's accessible from any device. Once you upload your contacts, you get an interactive profile for all your clients. You can view and filter contacts by deal stage, last contact, account value, and more. You can also make notes on the file, attach documents, and track the contact through the sales process. Capsule also makes task management a breeze, by organizing your to-dos and assigning automatic alerts and reminders. You'll be able to focus on precisely what you need to do right now. One of the main shortcomings of the system is the caps on storage for free users. With only 10 MB available for two users, you may outgrow the free version quickly. Capsule CRM also has a limited number of integrations, and you will need a paid subscription to access them.
To launch Agile CRM, all you need is a web browser. Once you connect your email, the platform becomes fully operational. Agile offers an abundance of automation features for customer service, sales, and marketing. Easy integration with telephony, social media, and email allows you to interact with customers from a single platform. Real-time alerts let you keep you on task and ensure you never miss a step in the sales process. As for analytics, Agile gives you many reporting options, such as sales KPIs and marketing ROI.

Support

Customer support is available to all Capsule users, even without a paid subscription. You can fill out a help ticket through the website or email or tweet your concern. Support hours are during regular business hours, Monday - Friday. You can also help yourself using online resources such as blogs, how-to videos, articles, and guides.
Agile offers support via email, chat, knowledge base, and user forum. Phone support is available during regular business hours, Monday-Friday. Email support operates 24/5 and tends to be responsive. As for training, it is available in the form of webinars, workshops, video tutorials, and articles.

Who is it for?

The strongest attribute of Capsule CRM is its simplicity and, accordingly, ease of use. You get just enough functionality to manage contacts and boost your sales cycle. There are no complicated dashboards or endless customization options. But if you need marketing and customer service tools, phone support, or advanced reporting options, this software is not the best match for your business.
Agile is a user-friendly and comprehensive CRM system that can boost your sales and improve business efficiency. The vendor is relatively new; as such, the developers have cherry-picked a lot of their competitors' best features while avoiding their mistakes. It is a good CRM for those who have tried and failed with other CRM vendors. Given Agile's free version of the software (for up to 10 users!), even the smallest businesses can use Agile to improve sales and daily operations. Medium-sized companies will probably require a paid version; however, plans are affordable, and Agile offers discounts on two-year contracts.
