Exactly. Neither have we. So when we set about comparing our CRM to others we wanted to take a different approach.
The comparison we’ve put together is based on whether it’s possible (and how much it costs) to do in Hubspot what you can do in Close.
For some of you, Hubspot will be the better option. What we’re trying to demonstrate is when Close is a better fit than our competitor.
When comparing these two products, the main difference that stands out is price and functionality. HubSpot Sales offers no inbound calling, no SMS, no historical import of email conversations & no bulk email features. To top that, HubSpot Sales has additional costs associated in the form of setup fees, third-party apps and a minimum payment for 10 users if you’re on the Enterprise plan ($14,400 annually).
HubSpot is a good standalone CRM, but a lot of the critical functionality required by a high-performing sales team is highly dependent on expensive third party applications.
Close is a CRM built to double your sales team’s productivity.
It’s an “all in one” platform which you can use standalone without needing any other sales emails tools or calling products.
It has been built with scalability in mind and can handle a high volume of leads.
The majority of your sales are closed without needing an individual salesperson.
You don’t have a dedicated sales team doing a high quantity of activities
You make low-volume of calls, don’t expect any inbound calls & don’t require SMS
You’re a heavy user of the HubSpot marketing platform but also doing a bit of sales as well and you want both under one roof
You’re OK with paying for training and configuration of the CRM
