Many users come to Zoho when they’re new to customer relationship management (CRM) software or think they only need the basics to bring their company success. But at Nutshell, you can get those features and more with the same ease of use you need to review data quickly and stay focused on your business.
However, Zoho tends to present a number of challenges for users. For example, people who are not used to working with technical software may face a learning curve in training and understanding how to make the most of the program’s capabilities. This is especially true given that the software can be unreliable at times, setting you back in productivity even further. Despite these bugs, the Zoho team does not dedicate much time to innovating solutions or offering new tools to continue improving your capabilities.
When users encounter challenges like these, they want to talk to support and get matters resolved. But herein lies yet another major concern—slow customer support. The support team takes its time in answering queries when your brand may not have time to spare, and you may not even get the answers you need. All of these challenges combine to inspire many users to search for Zoho alternatives in short order.
As you review comparisons between Zoho and other CRMs, you’ll see that Nutshell can hold its own against them. We work tirelessly to offer reliable solutions to your CRM needs, building out advanced automation features complete with real-time data syncing so you can access information from anywhere. Every part of our processes is customizable to fit the way you want your business to run.
When you need assistance, our support team will be ready to answer your email, call, or chat request. Whether you could use onboarding support as you integrate Nutshell with your existing platforms or you want to continue making your workflow more efficient, our team will do everything we can to assist you as quickly as possible.
I am amazed at how easy and intuitive Nutshell is, after using both Microsoft CRM and Zoho in the past. I was able to migrate in an afternoon and haven’t looked back since.

With an interface I can teach to someone in five minutes, Nutshell does everything we need without the complexity and ‘clunkiness’ of other CRMs.

One thing that really keeps us using Nutshell is just the great support you guys provide. The great follow up on issues, and always listening to the customers’ needs and requests stands out and is above and beyond.

The [Zoho] UI is not very pleasant. It really does take the fun and life out of doing sales. The interface is very dull and over complicated.
Anonymous reviewer SoftwareAdvice.com
[Zoho] support is lousy. Nearly impossible to get a knowledgeable person on the phone…The switching cost for us was huge.

Nutshell took me to the next level. I went from $40,000 a year to $100,000. Really love you guys.
