Alternatives to Salesforce and NetSuite

Alternatives to Salesforce and NetSuite

We hear a lot of stories in the small business community about people having problems with some of their business software, particularly when it comes to CRM. The two names that are most commonly mentioned seem to be Salesforce and Netsuite.

The main gripe is often with the large costs of using these systems to manage CRM. Although they are ostensibly aimed at businesses of all sizes and will do the job just fine, the cost is prohibitive for small businesses. Netsuite in particular make it difficult even to find out how much it will cost you to use their software! This isn’t very useful for any reasonably sized business with a modest turnover that has to account for every single expense.

Another problem we hear is that the software itself is not very flexible. If you want a change to be made or to be given a custom version of the software that is tailor-made to the needs of your business, the option will either not be available or it will be wildly expensive to the tune of nearly twice the original cost. This extra cost for customisation won’t just be a one-off either – you will be charged at that rate for as long as you remain a subscriber.

Because we are desperate for small and micro businesses to succeed, whenever we hear business owners complaining about these things we always let them know that they have another choice, rather than spending money hand over fist for a product that isn’t customised in the way their business needs it to be. That option is WinWeb Cloud.
