Best CRM tool for Mac? - Page 2

Edit: Here's the main site. Anybody have a screenshot of the database?

I can't help but laugh when I see software solutions like the one listed above (sorry, Frank). IMO, technology is a great helper, but the real core of business is finding out what people want and then selling it to them. That's pretty much it... besides the getting paid part. Too much tech can get in the way of the actual business part of business. Considering that the multi-billion dollar company around whose activities we all govern our lives started in a garage at the right place and time with almost no tech available at the time... the tech is a part of, but not the most important part of running a business. I guess I probably sound like a cranky old man for making comments like this.

Can anyone suggest any affordable web apps that do project management, CRM, and billing?

In my experience, web apps seem to be built primarily for larger organizations, and it's hard to find cost-effective apps for the SOHO market.

The only desktop app I know of that is well regarded and does all three areas you mention is Studiometry.

Okay, so Filemaker has introduced a Contact and Customer Manager template for Bento 3.

It beats me as to why they'd work on a CRM template with Opportunity Management for their $50. database, when their professional product doesn't have one yet.

From reading the comments, it appears that Bento can't print letters or envelopes. What?

I've looked at Daylite, SugarCRM, and others and have picked Daylite. There are some that don't do as much, and some that do a lot more (like sugarcrm). Daylite works best since I'm an independent financial advisor and not General Motors, and not a by-hour contract worker/consultant. You really need to look at each solution to see what best fits your business. I took 3 full days and evaluate 5 solutions before picking Daylite. There have been a number of Mac CRM companies come and go, another reason I choose Marketcircle's Daylite, it's not a one man shop.

ElementsCRM is a Mac-centric desktop/web CRM -- too big for me (like sugarcrm) but great for small businesses http://www.ntractive.com/.

Best of luck!

So thanks for sharing the information.

Marketcircle's Daylite, which I have previously dismissed for having a seriously outdated interface, has been upgraded to version 4.

It now has a much more modern look and a Sidebar-style interface.

 

Word on the Net seems to be that it was rushed to beat the June deadline for sandboxing, and as a result, users are reporting higher than normal bouts of crashing.

 

Oddly, Macworld hasn't done a single story on the new release. Since Daylite is the really the only Sales CRM game in town on the Mac platform, one would expect MacWorld to do a 'First Look' and then follow up with a complete review. This may speak to the idea that the release is known to be a bit shaky, and MW is waiting for a maintenance release before diving in.
