In March 2013, WORK[etc] commissioned an independent comparison of its business management platform with the top 4 leading CRM vendors.
Have you wondered how Netsuite compares vs Salesforce CRM? or how SugarCRM compares vs Salesforce? Well, in our independent comparison you can see how those CRM software solutions compare against each other, and even evaluate if Work[etc] is the right alternative for you.
