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.
Nutshell is an all-in-one growth software platform that enables sales and marketing teams to collaborate to win more deals. Nutshell provides easy to use CRM, sales automation, and email marketing tools, limitless data and contact storage, and world-class live support that is simple enough for any team but powerful enough for any firm. Nutshell works because it motivates your team to use it, increases the amount of time they spend selling, and assists you in closing more transactions and growing revenue. Every Nutshell subscription comes with limitless data and contact storage, friendly customer service from actual people, and completely customizable analysis tools.

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.
Nutshell CRM organizes and simplifies everything, beginning with its dashboard, which serves as your command center. You may launch activities and assignments, check appointments and timetables, access contact information, check sales status, and monitor your sales team's success, among other things, from there. You get reporting tools that allow you to see your team's sales performance as well as their qualitative productivity and effort in real time.

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.
Nutshell provides its users with a help center where you can find support with their collection of various training videos, articles and knowledge base for Nutshell usage, configuration and marketing.

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.
Small businesses that need an affordable and easy-to-use CRM, sales automation, and email marketing platform that actually helps you close deals, and can be fully implemented in days, not weeks.
