When we were evaluating CRMs, the one deciding factor between Nutshell and Salesforce came down to spin up time and price. Nutshell wins on both counts (by a huge margin). Salesforce was 10 times as much per month for what we wanted.

When you get into super complex integrations or scale your organization huge, look at Salesforce. For basically everyone else, Nutshell is phenomenal.

We came over [to Nutshell] from Salesforce after six years of use, and our sales team couldn’t be happier. I had my sales team ditching Salesforce after one week. That includes moving our data over, which was thousands of accounts, thousands of contacts and tens of thousands of history notes.

I have used Act, Goldmine and Salesforce in the past, and I have found that Nutshell was the easiest to get started with and to set up custom fields. I would recommend Nutshell to others that are interested in an easy to learn and navigate CRM.
