Nutshell keeps your entire sales team on the same page by allowing any team member to access these essential details at any time from any device. 

As a result, you can say goodbye to filling out and searching through countless spreadsheets and say hello to finding the information you need in one central location. 

That means your team can communicate effectively with your leads at the right time, leading to more conversions and sales for your manufacturing company.

Nutshell FAQ

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?
Manufacturing businesses 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.
