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.
TeamWave is part of a growing number of CRM systems that strive to do more. It combines CRM with HR and project management for an end-to-end software solution. This sophisticated platform can handle critical business processes, such as marketing and sales automation, scheduling, billing, and more. The client portal lets customers and staff collaborate on projects. Meanwhile, the HR features provide streamlined employee management, time tracking, and online staff directories.

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.
You can use TeamWave without training or any prior experience with CRM. The UI flows effortlessly and has a simple layout that’s reminiscent of Google’s design principles. The CRM’s functionality is built around activity-based selling. Dashboards and easy reporting let you keep your finger on the real-time pulse of your business. You can correct course to keep sales on track. Plus, you can build a repeatable sales process through sales workflows and task management.

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.
It has a rich knowledge base. The CRM is both web-based and mobile-based, letting you and staff work on the go. It also integrates with many popular applications, such as Quickbooks and Google Workspace.

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.
It's best for creative agencies, Retail, Digital marketing agencies, Financial services, manufacturing & services.
