CRM Compare: Salesforce, Netsuite, SugarCRM

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.

WORK[etc]’s unique ability is that it combines customer relationship management software with project management and other business tools, so comparing it directly with CRM-only software is not entirely fair.

For full disclosure, we have made the original research available in the public domain (see bottom of page). If you are just looking for information about how to compare business software, this document is a great place to start.
