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.
SAP CRM is an excellent choice for businesses already using the SAP software ecosystem. It connects effortlessly to other SAP suites, such as finance and back-end operations. It’s a comprehensive solution for sales, marketing, and customer service departments. It also provides some of the most advanced data analytics on the market. However, it’s difficult to integrate SAP with third-party tools. CRM is also too large and expensive for most small businesses and startups.

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.
The SAP CRM interface is configured based on roles, similar to Salesforce. In other words, your customer service team will see a different screen than a sales rep. This makes for a simple and uncluttered user experience. Further customization can be made based on personal preferences, such as the layout. Slow performance is a common complaint among SAP CRM users. It also lacks the modern and responsive interface common to cloud-based software.

Support

Close CRM offers email support Monday through Friday, 9 am - 7 pm. The speed of response depends on your subscription tier. The most expensive plan has a response time of up to 6 hours and may include such extra services as a screen share support, service-level agreement, and a dedicated account manager. There is also an extensive online knowledge base.
