Zoho is the next best thing to Salesforce in terms of being able to get the job done. I don’t think it's as good as Salesforce, but it’s good enough for a startup in the growth phase. You won’t incur crazy costs. Salesforce can also be hard and you get tangled trying to set it up. We’re not married to Zoho, but for this stage it’s good enough. It’s also customizable and you can hire people to customize and build what’s missing. We reached out and added two modules and made many small changes. For us, price is a huge determinant.

We are on the Zoho CRM free version, and it is still a lot of data entry. It has limited options in customizing the fields.

I looked at a few others, but Zoho seems to be more geared to startups--that is why we decided to adopt it. It’s still an old school accounting software with inventory and receivables.
