Salesforce has long been the market leader when it comes to SaaS CRM products. But as the market matures and customers demand a better user-experience and more relevant features, cracks have started to appear in their offering.
The research team was able to identify the following common Salesforce issues from just a simple scan of Google search results:
Salesforce does of course have a huge and loyal following and quite rightly too. It’s Cloud Force platform alone allows any business to add-on thousands of apps designed to extend Salesforce. The issue then becomes learning, paying for and maintaining multiple software tools as you keep adding more and more onto your basic license.

Customers ultimately wonder why they can’t just find one tool that covers all three of these features. Forget about spending thousands monthly adding new applications and dealing with hidden costs, WORK[etc] will cover all aspects of your business for a quarter of the cost.
WORK[etc] offers all the basic features of Salesforce but also much more:
Here is what Martin Byrne of Search Engine People from Ontario, Canada had to say about WORK[etc]:
“We did due diligence with everything from Salesforce to Zoho CRM and your system was the only affordable, easy to use system that allowed us to manage business from first call to last invoice. There are lots of things we wish it could do, but we all want lots of software to do more. I’ve used a number of SMB Operations systems over the years (and parts thereof) and this promises to be one of the best affordable integrated systems I’ve worked with.”
No leader wants to bring their team aboard a sinking ship. Here's how you can ensure your new CRM implementation efforts don't go to waste.
Time tracking always gets a bad rap. "It's a waste of time." "It's too much micro-management." If you're not tracking it, however, then you risk wasting it and losing out on these three tangible benefits.
If you only have 10 people on your team and one of those is, at best, average then that means a full 10% of your workforce is holding your business back. No small business can afford that anymore. Here's why.
Knowing which club to use in specific situations is key to winning in golf—just like how identifying your customers' needs and segmenting data is crucial in small business marketing.
Automating the lead capture process may be the most obvious use for WORKetc's custom web forms, but their sheer customizability actually lets you use them for far more than that.
