CRM Software

Postby Berm Bandit » Fri Sep 16, 2011 9:49 am

Knowing how many of you lot are in the techy end of the spectrum, does anyone have an experience with CRM software and might be able to give me a bit of a steer as to where to look? Currently I'm operating Sage 50 Accounts, and we have a very dated version of something called Maximiser as a database. Frankly I'm not overly in love with either of these for differing reasons. The obvious solution would be to go for Sage ACT which would theoretically integrate nicely with our accounts package.....but the issue with Sage is its slow and crahes regularly which as I understand it that relates to its outdated database software. The general online consensus is that adding ACT slows it and destabilises it further ..... so the $64,000 question is any other suggestions?

Zero experience here (I assume this is customer relationship mgt sw you're asking about). Databases shouldn't really be a bottleneck nowadays. I'd look for something that uses an open source database like MySql.

It's the name of a database server. It's open source and so free which appeals to my Yorkshire side. It's used a lot on website like this for example. It's probably not a relevant - I really don't know a thing about Sage and stuff like it.

The important thing is can I throw it into conversation so I sound like I know what I'm talking about?

As a regular SQL user, I'd say it depends how you pronounce it :geek:

Hey everyone. I've been using banking crm software for a while now, and I'd say setting up MySQL isn't way too hard. Get the database running on your hosting, get your configs right and it should go well.
