Overview

What's better than closing a deal with a customer? Closing more deals! Close CRM is loaded with tools to speed up your sales cycle, such as a speed dialer, email automation, and embedded communication for phone and SMS. These tools will improve your speed to lead, a proven strategy for converting more customers. Close CRM also keeps the interface simple by focusing on just one thing--sales.
Odoo is an open source software that comes in three flavors, two of which are hosted locally and one in the cloud. Odoo S.A. and its community have created over 7,300 applications, making them available to the public. This service is unique in that it is totally customisable. More than 30 approved applications cover the great majority of business cases, and they all connect to the same database on Odoo's servers.

Ease of use

From a single dashboard, you can manage leads and interact with customers. From within the client record, you can make calls, email, add notes and tasks, and change your lead status. Close CRM also lets you automate email campaigns, and track the opens, click rates, and other KPIs. If you make a mistake, the system offers an undo button. Close also makes long lists of sales calls a breeze with built-in VoIP telephony to 200 countries. You can record conversations and develop an effective calling strategy based on successful conversations. You can even redirect calls to another sales rep. SMS messaging is another tool you get with Close CRM. You can send bulk messages to notify clients about special offers and new products. In addition to making communication easy, the interface itself is easy to navigate. Close CRM keeps the UI simple by focusing only on sales tools and communication. Close CRM makes paying easy too. You can drop out of your plan at any month. They will keep your data for a prescribed time, so it's there waiting if you decide to come back to the platform. Alternatively, subscribe to an annual contract, and you'll receive a 15% discount.
Odoo has a highly clean and visually appealing interface, which makes it much easier to use. It may appear to be a little detail, but with most CRM software delivering the same basic capabilities, a decent interface makes a significant difference. The integration with other products also contributes to a positive experience.
