Highrise alternatives: The 6 best CRMs you need to consider

Last month, Highrise’s 10,000+ customers got some bad news: The CRM platform will no longer be actively developed by its parent company, Basecamp.

In other words, Highrise won’t be adding any more new features to the product, or evolving with the changing needs of sales teams. As Basecamp CEO Jason Fried put it, “Today’s version of Highrise is the forever version of Highrise.”

If you’re one of the unfortunate Highrise users who now finds themselves stuck with a CRM that’s heading towards extinction, you have two options: Continue to use a product that will be permanently frozen in amber, or look for Highrise alternatives that provide similar features at an affordable price.

Here are the top six Highrise alternatives that sales teams need to consider when choosing a new CRM:

Nutshell, of course! Growing companies appreciate Nutshell for our affordability, ease of use, and unlimited data. As soon as a startup is ready to start acquiring customers and has a sales team in place (even if it's just one person), they're ready to make an investment in a CRM.
