Best Free CRM & Contact Management Software.
For the consultant, micro business or entrepreneur, these free CRM solutions are often adequate for your requirements. At least initially.
Mostly for single users, these free CRM ‘carrots’ are there to entice you to upgrade to their more full blown – advanced or multi-user versions, which is fair enough, but the free CRM products mentioned below are capable enough in their own rights.
Top CRM Highly Recommended. Not exactly a free CRM, but with only one small payment for life, it almost is! Infoflo is a contact management system with none of the complexities of CRM products. This feature rich system empowers users to manage large amounts of information without losing any of its reliability or usability. Infoflo enables users and their staff to easily manage all of their customer relationships in one easy to use interface showing important information needed at a glance. Pricing is $99 per user, a one-time cost, and includes free updates for life. They offer a free Trial.
Really Simple Systems
Top CRM Highly Recommended. RSS has everything you need to manage your customers, prospects and sales pipeline. It has all the CRM features and functionality of their award winning Enterprise Edition, just limited to two users and 100 companies. It is web based and is free, forever. If you need more data or advanced features then you can upgrade to their Premium or Enterprise editions.
HubSpot is an easy to use flexible CRM system that eliminates manual work and helps a sales team to focus on selling. It is an inbound marketing and sales platform which is free and can be used immediately. HubSpot CRM allows users to keep all their contacts in one centralized, customizable database, automatically logging every interaction for them. It also accesses the internet for users. This feature rich system will also track customer/sales team interactions and referrals. Training and support is offered to users.
Highly Recommended. Bitrix24, with over 500,000 users, is fast taking over the mantle of Most Popular Free CRM. And not suprisingly – their feature-rich, free forever plan is not crippled in any respect, (except for a limit of up to 12 users and 5 Gb of data storage) unlike virtually all the other so-called free CRM’s. All your CRM records (leads, companies, contacts, deals, invoices, quotes) are unlimited, as well as unlimited custom fields. You also have a free email marketing engine and can send/receive emails directly from Bitrix24. Other main features include the ability to make/receive calls; sales automation/business processes; multiple currencies; and integration with various apps like Xero accounting.
Recommended. This free Contact Manager Basically serves you as a Scheduler, Contact Manager, and Outliner, and is a completely free CRM solution, although they also offer pay Contact Manager versions (surprise). If you are on a No Budget diet, you could safely consider EssentialCRM. Later on, if necessary, you can always upgrade to their PRO version, or export your data to something more sophisticated if required.
Recommended. If you are after a low end, free single-user CRM that offers tight Gmail integration, check out Radium. Their new Chrome app strengthens their Google compatibility.
If your organization uses MS Outlook extensively, you also might want to have a look at these Outlook based CRM solutions. They do not offer any free single user CRM freebies though.
While the CRM’s and Contact Managers mentioned above are free, they don’t all meet the definition of free software defined here…
