Pros: Nutshell has been great for our software firm as it grew from a startup to a mid-market company. Nutshell is very similar to us in age, culture, feature philosophy, etc. so I always enjoy interacting with the team. The Support (via chat and email) is excellent and they are always willing to hear new feature ideas and requests. The affordability makes it a great first CRM for new and small businesses.

Cons: Importing can sometimes result in a lot of duplicate leads, so data cleanliness becomes a bit of an issue as you grow. Reporting has some room to grow but it's not too bad right now.

Overall: New sales people are able to jump right in with minimal training. Workflows are customizable, and tracking prospect information is a breeze.

Fairly easy to use. Wish they had customer support outside of their Eastern time zone.

Pros: I like the Phone app and the ability to take picture of business cards and have them added to Nutshell

Pros: I had never used a CRM before, but yet I was able to set it up with ease. It is very intuitive. We have a lot of people on our team who have never used a CRM before and they catch on easily. I also love the integrations with google and our ticketing system.

Cons: Not all reporting features are available with the basic subscription - but enough are available that we don't need to upgrade.

Overall: A CRM that gets the job done without being complicated. Customer service is also excellent!

Comments: I think this could be a useful CRM if I was able to navigate through it easier with some training, help and time.

Pros: Videos showing different tools that can be used; quick customer help via email; live demo every Tues/Thurs; app for phone

Cons: With the Videos though I am unable to implement those steps on my Nutshell; unable to chat live or speak to someone on the phone, everything is via email; unable to link my contacts; unable to link Constant Contact; unable to link to my outlook to save email conversations with lead; the live demo doesn't show me how to use the other features like sending mass emails that look like individual emails, where to set up tags and how to link those tags to multiple contacts without having to go into each contact.

Pros: Easy migration from old CRM via CSV import. Activity management and to do lists keep users organized and on task. Integrated lead tracking and metrics help guide sales reps through the sales process. Ability to link with Google Suite is a definite plus.

Cons: I would love to see Nutshell offer integrations to more third-party apps. For instance, we use Reply.io for e-mail campaigns and there is no direct connection to Nutshell. It's not a huge deal, but would be even better if Nutshell and Reply.io worked together.

Overall: We previously used a locally-installed, server-based CRM (Goldmine), which was very functional but completely not portable. Migrating to Nutshell allows for easy remote access from anywhere an Internet connection can be found. And in this day in age, that's of the utmost importance. We also used to keep a bunch of Excel spreadsheets for sales tracking, pipeline management, and customer details, all of which have now been replaced by Nutshell's standard functionality.

Pros: Nutshell is extremely easy to implement and has all the basic features you need to get a CRM up and running . It is awesome for anywhere from 1 - 1000 customers. Integration with email is easy. Phone app is great especially when making calls from it to customers so you can log that the call happened. Collaboration with your team is seamless.

Cons: Nutshell does lack some of the more indepth automation features that you can get in a Salesforce, but it is far more affordable and doesn't require crazy setup. Their api is decent, but also has a little way to go for advanced integration. Nutshell also isn't the best choice for thousands of customers because it is hard to manage.

Overall: We were able to track progress with our customers far easier. It brought our entire sales team together to manage relationships and make sure we were following up on sales.

This has been an easy, no-nonsense experience for a great price.

Pros: Price, easy to navigate and add/change contacts. Easy to teach to other sales people and data people who upload our leads into it.

Cons: The phrase "must've been nice" when I don't have dates on that calendar day. Would also like to have an admin view of every user's calendar.

Overall: Flexible pricing- I can change number of users I am charged for monthly either up or down. We were easily able to figure out how to upload our leads and data into the system. The calendar functions are straight forward. We have experienced almost zero down time. Customer service is very responsive and nice to talk to. I haven't used a lot of the more sophisticated aspects but for a daily caller this is great.

Comments: Nutshell CRM has all the tools to make a business more successful. It gives sales reps the opportunity to stay well organized and maintain accurate records on each customer. A great system software every company should use.

Pros: What we like most of using Nutshell is how easy it is to use, it keeps accurate reports and helps us keep track of our overall numbers and helps us keep accurate records of our customers.

Pros: Ease of use, backed up by powerful tools. Tracks your calls and even can be set to remind you to contact customers that you haven't talked to in a while. Favorite part is the Keep in touch. It plans my day and my call backs flawlessly.

Cons: I would like to see a visual overlay of all my customers on a map. That way when I am planning a trip I don't miss any customers that are off the main roads. Will give me a visual to help plan. Or some way to plan a road trip and Nutshell will show me all the customers I should contact on the way and plan route. Which can be transferred over to gps software like enroute.

Overall: It allows me to easily keep track of everything. What sales I am working on. What customers I need to contact. And everything is conveniently located to work with ease.

In the two months of implimentation already seen a growth in sales and productivity. Including our first ever RFQ from our website.

Pros: Ease of use. Searching is speedy and the interface is well thought out. There's a lot of customization available and marketing to my customers is easy with templates.

Pros: Easy and flexible setup; consistently clear design. Can use basic functions without tripping over the advanced ones, and can gradually add feature/function for a smooth transition from beginner to power user.

I also like the way you have color-keyed the function buttons to the main color on functional screens. A nice visual orientation cue!

Cons: I worked full-time in the design profession for 17 years, so this is a 'studied' critique:
There is a lot of market pressure for tech products to follow design trends. Unfortunately, design trends often are based on designers designing for other designers -- which tends to leave certain kinds of user needs out in the cold. One of the most common of these 'orphaned' needs is the need for contrast and clarity. Nutshell's UI gets high marks in my book for uncluttered design and common-sense functionality. But as people get older, it gradually becomes harder to distinguish low-contrast elements in a design. Contrast (and color, of course) also can be used (and is used to a degree in Nutshell) to 'lead the eye to where the action is. ' My suggestions for improving the main user screen are these:
1) Search Everything is, by definition, a key feature -- it should have a STRONG presence, instead of looking almost greyed-out.
2) Use bolder and slightly larger text throughout. To a degree, weight and size will compensate for lack of contrast -- and without cluttering the layout.

Overall: It's CRM that actually is liked and used!

Pros: The tags and sorting ability make it easy to slice and dice our customers for marketing campaigns. We are going to use mail chimp later this month and I'm anxious to see how that works.

Pros: The email integration is probably the best part! Not having to copy and paste all of our emails. I also really like that my boss and I have separate profiles so it is easy to see who has done who.

Cons: iPad & mobile apps - so not user friendly! Lead and Person separation. seems like too much! Would rather have one profile that I can add as many people as I need and not all the info be separated. Also, the crazy "Follow Up" feature - you can't click all day. Have had some crazy funk with the scheduling for sure. Still shows appointments that I either edited for a different date/time or deleted! We are all about feedback and have given constant feedback, but my boss doesn't necessarily feel heard.

Overall: We have all of our info in one spot which is nice and organized! Our last CRM randomly deleted our info which was so frustrating. We have not had that issue with this.

I would still recommend because it is a really good software. our company just doesn't need all the bells and whistles that it offers. I am sure it works great for plenty other companies.

Pros: We track every single one of our customers and potential customers in this system. It is the hub of our business

Cons: I dont like that the relationship between the "Lead" and the "Business" is the way it is... I dont like that you have to make a Lead and a Business at the same time. It always seemed to me that a lead should be a lead until it turns into a customer (Business). It would make our lives easier if thats the way it was.

Pros: I can access my data from any device on the go, at a trade show, or anywhere in addition to daily use in the Mac App or in an open browser window. It always responds fast and is well organized.

Cons: I wish it could easily harvest customer info from Linked In or other sites. I find a lot of my new potential customers on Linked In and end up doing a lot of copy/past of company and contact information. I wish there were a way to do that faster.

Hi Dave, So great to hear you are a happy Nutshell customer. LinkedIn is difficult because they took away their API (we used to have it). We'll need to come up with some more creative ways to collect your information. Thanks for being a part of the Nutshell community! Amanda

Pros: The lead interface page and dashboard. I'm new to nutshell. I've been using it for about 5 months. I've worked with a lot of CRM software and even helped design some. I like how nutshell organizes all relevant prospect info on the lead page. I also like how the dashboard allows you to customize.

Cons: The task and activities list. It may just be that I don't know the functionality well enough yet, but the to do list, activities, etc needs work.

Pros: Nutshell has a reasonably simple interface to use. There has been enough ability to customise the platform to get it to show some of the data/reporting information I needed.

Cons: The new reporting format is a really poor user experience, putting irrelevant information front and center and making it harder to access the custom set-ups I need to make Nutshell work for me. I had high hopes that Nutshell would continue to improve from its base, however, I haven't seen any signs of a good update to the platform in the last 6-12 months. We are now in the process of evaluating other platforms to move away from Nutshell. Missing major functionality to make it useful.

Pros: I like the new data and sales reporting. It works very well for a manufacturing sales environment. I also really like the activity tracking, todo list tasks, and last contact. It is very easy to sort through areas with that, combines with map views and company/leads territory custom lists.

Cons: Leads and company note sharing- when you put notes in leads they don't show up in the company without at tag. Also the Mobile app is easy to use but the notes aren't as easy to access.
I would maybe add more annual planning details to help companies grow in addition to fiscal goals.
Another change that would be nice for larger databases would be last viewed columns, say you didn't email them etc it would be nice to know the last time called or time the account was reviewed by a particular user.

Pros: Not much. There are no redeeming qualities of this software. We're required to use it for work and keep our contacts in but it's impossible to use or find anything. A search for Jane Smith returns Demita Evans. A search for Apex returns Zyno. You can't search by position, the names are listed randomly, you can't put them in alphabetical order. I could go on forever.

Cons: It's so hard to use. The search function is completely ineffective. You can't sort or filter anything. I'd be better off with an Excel spreadsheet of company names and contacts.

Overall: Not much. I could keep my contacts in a spreadsheet and have more access to the data. I'd be able to search data more effectively. It's pretty bad all around.

Pros: The updated and modern look of all the icons and images was a great add on. We are also excited to take advantage of the updated reporting capabilities as well.

Cons: How leads have to be added into the system. Before an update was done, the company information (address, phone, etc) and the person information (address, phone, etc) was able to be added directly when creating the lead. Now the lead must be generated first and only the company name and person name can be added at time of creation. You have to then go back and add all other information for the company and person after. VERY tedious and frustrating this process was changed.

Pros: The ability to automate tasks is pretty spectacular. I also very much appreciate the ability to make a call directly from the mobile app, log it, and make a note about what was discussed.

Cons: Besides the ability to make phone calls and log them directly from the mobile app, I am very unhappy with it. I spend about half my time on the app and half my time on the website, and the ability to log tasks generated in my leads really needs to be in the mobile app for Nutshell to make a significant difference for me. I would also like the ability to tag people in task notes in addition to the current ability to tag people in general notes.

Overall: Nutshell helps me get more done in less time, plain and simple. Our business is centered around new sales and taking care of those clients we already have. Nutshell helps simplify our communication while also assisting us in making that communication more timely.

Pros: The calling feature allows recording of calls so it is easy to pick back up where you left of in a conversation with a prospect.

Cons: That you don't make it easier to line-up a bunch of people to call and then easily move through Calling while easily reviewing notes and information from your call / contact history. You can do this now but it takes a lot of clicking around. Can you package it. In Hubspot I could add people to a call list - set a time interval between calls - and it moves from one call to the next. Nutshell could do this.

Overall: Great contact mgmt for a good value

Pros: Easy to set appointments and track who I have talked with and what we talked about and set follow up calls/appointments. The reports are a good tool for staying on track with my efforts/results. I've only had one experience with customer support but when I did they responded very quickly and had me back working in a very reasonable amount of time.

Cons: For what I use the software for there really are not any cons. I am an end user so I primarily use it for setting/following up/tracking my daily calls and contacts. I guess on the computer side the only negative I would say is the search engine is very fickle, sometimes you can put in specific words and you get some crazy thing that has nothing to do with the company or person your looking for and then you can misspell what your looking for and get exactly what you want.

I will say that the app for my HTC phone is somewhat lacking. I can set appointments just fine and log calls/emails but the searching for a certain person or company is very very limited

Pros: It's an easy software to learn, but Pro is too short because there just aren't any real pro's for our use, but to change would be a nightmare, so we continue in hopes to see improvement.

Cons: Would be nice if you could see the "Owner" of the account on the lead no matter who starts the lead - It's constant going back and forth when you have to pay people by commission sales. The search engine could be improved to pickup on Not Exact entries.
It would be nice to see "ALL" the notes regardless if your in a lead or on the main page.

Overall: Still waiting to see for the most part - It is a good software to manage people on their calling the customer. Easy Spying on daily use. Glad we are a micro company, can't imagine using Nutshell for 1000 employees

Pros: Ease of use

The ability to manage and update our member company portfolio in one place

Cons: Only con is the inability to remove someone (a contact) from a specific company they are linked to without entirely deleting them.

Overall: Ability to track and organize all aspects of our member company portfolio including activities, contact via email, in person and follow up. Makes my job much easier!

Hi Tina! Thank you so much for your feedback. Good news, you can remove a contact from a specific company without deleting the contact. You can either go to the person page and remove the company or go to the company page and remove the person from the company. In both cases, the contact still exists but is no longer linked to the company. Please feel free to call our customer support team and they can walk you through the steps. Frank

Pros: The phone App is fairly strong. That I can call and have calls tracked from my phone App. That I know when an email I have sent through Nutshell is opened. There is quick and easy access to all Companies, People and Leads through the search function. That there is a reasonable degree of customization that can occur with Nutshell.

Cons: I am very disappointed that Nutshell does not integrate with my Google contacts as this requires me to double entry contacts, arg. I am also very disappointed in the non existent formatting within Nutshell email. In order for me to track whether an email is opened, I have to send it via Nutshell, hence I lose all ability to format good emails.

Overall: Ease of phone calling from the Nutshell App. Tracking of opened emails sent from Nutshell. Ease of access to Customer data through the search function.

Pros: Easy to use, well organized, saves info into a dashboard, quick, efficient, could use more contrast and colors possibly?

Cons: That it freezes and doesn't sync activities on a calendar at least once to twice per week. And then all of a sudden after an hour and a half of nothing, it loads up all the activities to it. It's very frustrating! I try to disable it and enable again and save, and nothing usually works until IT (nutshell) decides to work.

Pros: I like the ease of navigation, and the timeline for each lead page. The template portion is a real time-saver and help.

Cons: The leads list is very frustrating. If I want to follow up on my leads, I want to know how many emails only I have sent. I don't need to know the total emails that includes what others have sent. Now I have to open the lead page to see what and how many emails I have sent to that lead. It is especially time-consuming, as it prevents me from doing a group/mass email, not knowing what kind of email has previously been sent out by me. Also, when I click on "send an email" it would be helpful if all the email addresses for that one lead were automatically included. Also, make all the email addresses visible on the sidebar without having to hover over the blue people card.

Overall: Good tracking of process and progress on individual contacts or leads.

Pros: It helps me to keep track of contacts and jot down notes after I have finished talking with them. At the end of the month, I need to compile them. This has made it so easy.

Pros: Interface is fairly clean. Price is reasonable. Kind staff. Good Midwestern folk are a nice break from Silicon Valley types. Attempt to be progressive is appreciated.

Cons: Missing obvious reports like a weighted pipeline. Customization with reports is limited.
Integration with Google and Mailchimp in particular feels lighter than what would be ideal. Built-in mail campaigns lack quality formatting options and attachments. Support is very slow to respond. I've watched the service get worse over time.

Overall: CRM...

Pros: UI is getting much better in general, and the software has always been quite reliable (rarely down or broken).

Cons: 1. Can't duplicate leads (we have customers that renew annually - I have to create new leads with all of the information each time)
2. Can't type an actual date in (must pick it) - every time I create a new lead for an annual subscription in the future, I have to click 12 times to get to the right month. Doing this for 20-30 leads makes my hand want to fall off
3. Hard to add future subscription leads - if we sell a monthly subscription for our product, we have to manually create 12 leads each year. Very time-consuming.
4. Editing contacts should be possible in-line. You can add emails/phone, but changing title and other items require you to leave the lead and go to the full contact form.
5. I preferred the older 'create lead' form which was the full page. The new one is less productive because you have to fill it out, then go the full page version and finish all of the items that were missing in the pop-up version.
6. Pro version cost. We don't need anything from Pro except the funnel report for only one user. To get that it would require all users going pro and increasing our cost by 4x which isn't possible.

Overall: Better tracking of our forecast and contacts.

Pros: I like that it holds all the information for my accounts and that I can set reminders for phone calls.

Cons: I wish everything on the lead for a shop page showed up on the store page, i'm always having to flip from page to page to get a name and it seems redundant and time consuming to re input that information everytime I start a new lead when I just put it on the store page. Same with logged activities, I often have an activity on an account and then I have to put one on the lead I wish the activity showed up on both. For my use all calls are for the same purpose and it doesn't make sense to have two places to put independent activities. This creates a sense of Deja Vu or worse I call someone a second time and don't realize until they pick up which hurts my cause. I don't like that I have to assign a time to a phone call, my days are hectic and I can't keep to a strict schedule so things slip into unlogged activities and go missed and my day seems way more hectic than it is. I wish it was just a daily list so I could let my day evolve, I also do CS and warranty at my job so this time stamp constantly makes me feel behind the gun and I spend a lot of time just updated and re-organizing nutshell, time that I should be spending selling.

Pros: I appreciate the constant updates. Nutshell has some ways to come, so it is nice seeing changes be made. Customer service is always on spot and very friendly. Nutshell support page is great for new employees, referring them straight to there for advice. The adaptability & usability of the interface is very user friendly.

Cons: I have been using this software since October of 2014. So far, I think what needs to be implemented on the "Admin/SetUp side" is making sure Products, Reasons why Leads Close, the Sales Process Competitors, and so much more need to be added from the start with Nutshell and the business buying the service. The reason being is because over the last two years, slowly things have been added/removed/changed. So now we have 2 years worth of jumbled data IMO. Going through a thousand leads that only a handful of them have tags on to find out why something was closed via notes or what product was sold is a little silly. I think the setup process should include this for the end user (being our company). Mind you, I was not the one to set up the account with Nutshell so I am unsure if this is something offered, but It helps a lot when running reports on products, etc.

Pros: How flexible it is for when we decide to track new customer information. The tag system and how people are connected to companies is rather nice.

Cons: How difficult it is to search for a customer or person by their phone number. Right now I have to create a temporary filter and enter the entire phone number in it to see if there's an entry and then have to do it again for people if the number wasn't recognized as a company.

The feature I want most is to be able to type in the last 4 digits of a phone number and see every person and company attached to that number.

No proper iPad app. No offline desktop apps. There was a feature I was missing on the iPhone app but can't remember what it is.

Overall: Multi-user contact sharing with phone app and SSB desktop app. Helps us track current customers and work with them more effectively.

Pros: The software makes it very easy to keep track of communication with each of our potential clients. Being able to email directly through the software is very convenient, compared to going back and forth through email. The functions of being able to add indiviuals and companies to each Lead is helpful as well rather than just 1 person/ company. As our sales will usually go through a couple chanels before final sale.

Cons: Mobile app feature is decent. It doesn't have all the functions as online. Such as adding notes or logging activities. This would be helpful when traveling to add at the same time of meeting or directly after, rather than needing to go to actually computer. Previously had some trouble finding the emails logged if I hadn't created the company/person before sending the email, but I believe this has been resolved recently. The stages of Leads doesn't neccesarily apply to our sales steps. We offer service and products and most of our Leads to do not follow the linear nature of stages.

Overall: Great customer service. Good price for small/ start up businesses & sales teams. Great management of timelines for contacting each customer.

I appreciate how the software holds information about clients and prospecs, could be simplified.

Pros: I like the "explore" function on leads. This helps me see my progress through the year.

Cons: I wish we could send quotes and create orders in the lead. I think it would be a nice upgrade to have the software pull recommended customers that i can assign to the lead based on the area of the lead.

Overall: Data base and lead organization.

Pros: The layout is great and easy to use. The support page has all of the information we need to find out how to complete a specific task.

Cons: When entering in a customer account, the app will erase the letters while you're typing. We are also experiencing a problem after logging activity the app will delete all of the information we are logging. I live in Ann Arbor and have asked to meet in person several times and the answer is always no. I need to know these problems can be fixed.

Overall: Tracking activity of sales reps, customer account data, establish sales goals.

Pros: Automation - syncing emails and events to timeline and calendar

Cons: No ability to move through a list using a single click. No ability to alter a custom field after creating (i.e. change from text to currency)

Overall: Creating of a daily schedule due to ease of creating Activities per active accounts and active prospects.

I personally struggle with Nut Shell -especially the calendar.

Pros: The map, IF we have the advisor entered into Nut Shell I can pull up a geographical area and it will include advisors in that area.

Cons: Calendar, scheduling.
Doesn't allow for Outlook invites to be added to Nut Shell. When I receive an Outlook Invite I need to physically add it to Nut Shell. this is a problem.

Pros: Helps organize our leads and work together collaboratively. Also helps me keep track of tasks. I can make calls from it.

Cons: Quality of calls sometimes are not good. Also my tasks get lost sometimes. It would be good to integrate them into my calendar somehow.

Pros: It is pretty easy to get up to speed with the software which has been a nice feature for our organization as we've had multiple people needing to use Nutshell...the reporting and tags have been really helpful..I run a lot of custom reports and using the tag feature on a daily basis.

Cons: It has been challenging to be able to connect with support staff about a technical issue. About a year ago, I really enjoyed being able to message with support staff if I had a question..now it seems like I have to wait a day or two for an automated email reply with some links to some possibly related topics of interest.. my questions can be fairly technical and multi-faceted where either use of messaging or simply talking to another human would be more beneficial.

Overall: Nutshell allows a very small company like ours to manage all of our leads and clients in a manner that would be quite challenging without the software. We are a very unique business in a niche industry and Nutshell adapts very well to our needs.

Overall good`

Pros: Like the features of being able to see email from team to clients. Good to compare and see progress of sales each month.

Cons: Would like to be able to choose what emails are shared from app. Also would like to organize products manually not alphabetically. Emails don't always connect to leads. Also would like to see an d iPad app.
