Well I was a long time user of Salesforce going back over a decade, not just a User but ran large scale implementations in SFDC (salesforce dot com). Deployed Lightning to a national sales team of over 350. Managed the tech stack for 2000 technicians using SFDC primarily for work order management.

Before that I was using ACT! ... and wow, had that funky gadget with it's own alphabet.

I've chosen ...

I've chosen HubSpot for my small business. I'm new to HubSpot and have imported a customer list, integrated to email, and have been using a host of other features.

Overall, the comprehensiveness of SFDC made it jack of all trades and master of none. Trying to be everything to everyone and losing sight on the core CRM functionalities. Scope creep has hit SFDC. For the SMB User, setting up SFDC and getting utility out of SFDC was costly in time and licensing... too much work.

I'm sure there are tons of CRMs to choose from, and largely depends on what you want it to do. I chose a CRM to be just that - a CRM - with the ability to seamlessly integrate with my other digital tools. This frees up my CRM to be the best CRM, and other functions, like back office operations, to be managed separately.
