The Real Cost of Implementing Salesforce
Choosing the correct CRM for your business is an important decision that requires leaders to take many factors into consideration. The biggest factor of all is, of course, cost. For sales and marketing managers, it’s especially important to keep an eye on your company’s bottom line while working to set your teams up for success.
You’ve no doubt heard of Salesforce – it’s one of the largest customer relationship management software companies in the industry, owning almost 20% of the market. Founded in 1999, the software provides businesses with a case and task management system while providing customers with the ability to track their own cases. Salesforce is perhaps the most well-known CRM software as it has managed to remain relevant even amongst an increasingly competitive market. But with so many other options on the table at a more affordable price, how does Salesforce stack up when you really break down the numbers?
Because of its market position, Salesforce pricing is a hot topic. It’s common to want to know what to expect before buying in, but many CRM companies, including Salesforce, don’t offer a free version of their software, and CRM pricing is notoriously opaque.
How can you make the best decision for your team if you don’t have all the facts?
WorkWise LLC hired a researcher to analyze what Salesforce really costs. The team utilized a handy “kitchen remodel” analogy to help guide you through your CRM purchasing process, using Salesforce as an example. They also included tools that are useful when considering any new software. The result? A guide to CRM costs, both on a micro and macro level, explained in an accessible way that anybody can understand.
Upgrading your CRM software is a huge purchasing decision for your company, but having all the readily available information in front of you can help make that decision a bit less daunting. So, are you thinking about purchasing Salesforce? It will probably cost you more than you think.
