Our construction CRM can help you earn more clients
Working in the construction field, you’re undoubtedly the expert at building new homes or offices. But what about building strong relationships with your customers?
Customer relationships are the backbone of any business—without those relationships, no one will hire you, and you won’t earn revenue. That’s why you can benefit from using a customer relationship management (CRM) platform.
If you’re looking for an optimal CRM for construction companies, look no further than Nutshell. We offer several unique benefits that will make you glad to work with us. Just keep reading to learn more.
Why do you need a construction company CRM?
CRMs exist to help you gather and organize data about your leads and clients. That’s something every business needs because without looking at customer data, you’ll never have a complete understanding of your audience or your most valuable opportunities.
Construction business CRMs can help you see who your best clients are and what they want. That allows you to more effectively market to them, skyrocketing your revenue in the long term.
On top of that, CRMs are great for helping you run day-to-day tasks automatically, so you can close more deals.

There are tons of benefits to choosing Nutshell as your construction company CRM.
Let’s look at a few:
1. Nutshell automates repetitive tasks
One of the main benefits of using Nutshell is its sales automation capabilities. As we mentioned above, you don’t want to have to handle every single CRM task manually. Not only is that a huge pain, but it also hurts your profits because it takes away time from building relationships and closing deals.
Thankfully, Nutshell’s automation helps you avoid those issues. Our CRM is built to handle simple, mundane tasks for you. For instance, rather than manually typing out and sending all your sales and marketing emails, you can simply let Nutshell manage your email campaigns for you.
With those repetitive tasks out of your hair, you can spend more time focusing on the big-picture elements of your construction company that require your attention.
Better than Salesforce for a small business.

2. Nutshell is built to be user-friendly
Nutshell’s superior user-friendliness is another way we stand out from the competition. Many CRMs are complicated and hard to navigate, but not Nutshell. We specifically designed our tool for ease of use.
To start with, the tool is clearly divided into different sections. That includes separating your audience by where they are in the sales funnel—leads, people, and companies.
More than that, though, we make it easy to find whatever you need with a simple search. Our predictive search feature allows you to input a name or phone number and instantly find the contact you’re trying to look up.
I’ve used Act, Goldmine and Salesforce in the past, and Nutshell was the easiest to get started with. I would recommend Nutshell to anyone interested in an easy to learn and navigate CRM.

3. Nutshell helps you analyze your data
Analytics is at the heart of any CRM. It’s the reason CRMs exist to begin with—there wouldn’t be much point in collecting audience data if you didn’t have the ability to analyze it.
Analyzing data helps you better understand your audience—their demographics, their service preferences, and more. Knowing that information helps you market to them more effectively, which ultimately leads to more sales and brings in much more revenue for your company.
For that reason, Nutshell puts a heavy emphasis on analytics. You can hop over to our “Reports” tab in the platform to instantly see an overall sales report, and you can also generate in-depth custom reports related to any metric of your choosing.
Every experience I have had with your Support team has been exceptional! Instead of dreading a phone call to support, I look forward to the amazing responses I always get. We are very happy with your product and service and hope to continue this relationship for many years to come!

4. Nutshell excels at customer service
Finally, one of the main things that make Nutshell so great is that our construction company CRM is more than just a tool. We won’t just hand you the reins and say “good luck”—we’ll stick around to actively help you through any questions or problems you may have.
That’s because we believe in the value of having actual humans to help you, not just an online guide or a chatbot. If you ever experience issues with Nutshell or have a question you can’t find the answer to, it’s as simple as calling up our team and talking to one of our helpful customer service reps.
We’ll work with you to resolve whatever issues you may have, ensuring that your CRM experience is as smooth as it can possibly be.
Whoever is designing Nutshell is a wizard and needs a high-five. I shopped every other CRM out there, and everybody else is just trying to copy Salesforce.

What does Nutshell cost?
Nutshell costs $16 per user per month paid annually, or $19 per user per month paid monthly. Our Nutshell Pro subscription (which includes sales automation and advanced reporting) costs $42 per user per month annually, or $49 per user per month paid monthly.
Are there any limits on data storage or contact storage?
No. Every Nutshell CRM subscription comes with unlimited contacts and data storage. (Note: Our Nutshell Marketing add-on is a separate monthly charge based on your number of contacts.)
I currently use another CRM to manage my contacts and leads. Can I transfer my existing data into Nutshell?
Yes. Getting your current data into Nutshell can be done through a .csv import in about an hour, and our free white-glove import service makes the process easy, fast, and accurate.
Will I be able to pay for my Nutshell subscription month-to-month, or do I have to sign a long-term contract?
We offer monthly subscriptions that can be canceled any time. You can also pay for a year’s subscription upfront to get a discount.
Do I have to pay extra to get access to live support?
Nope! Our Michigan-based technical support team is available to all customers and trial users by phone, live chat, and email, Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm ET (excluding holidays).
I’m not sure if I need a CRM yet. When should my business invest in one?
Construction companies often feel the pain of disorganization as soon as they have multiple sales team members independently working leads—you just can’t keep track of those efforts in a spreadsheet.
Plus, even if your company only has a handful of leads to work each month, storing customer contact information and conversation details in one place is so much easier than hunting through multiple spreadsheets and inboxes anytime you need to find something important.
So: If you have a sales team that’s actively working deals, or a growing database of contacts, it’s time for a CRM. Learn more about the key benefits of CRM software right here.
Why should I buy Nutshell instead of a construction-specific CRM?
Construction CRMs use more of the industry terminology that you might be familiar with, but ultimately they provide the same contact management and opportunity tracking features as any CRM. Nutshell is easier to learn than the construction CRMs on the market, it’s more affordable, and it’s flexible enough to fit the needs of any B2B organization.
Nutshell’s excellent value and quality of support makes us a better option for construction companies than Salesforce, HubSpot, Pipedrive, or Monday.com. (To see how we stack up against other CRM solutions, visit our compare page.)
