Mimiran as a Salesforce CRM alternative

Choose the right CRM for you

Salesforce is the 800 pound gorilla of the CRM market, with billions in revenue, a stellar portfolio of customers, big marketing budgets, and huge user conferences.

The company is synonymous with the term CRM (Salesforce’s stock symbol is, in fact, “CRM”.)

But Salesforce isn’t for everyone. (And neither is Mimiran.)

Is either of these systems right for you?

 

Where Salesforce Excels

  • Large sales teams (250+)
  • Complex requirements and extensive customization
  • Integration of other enterprise applications via the AppStore, including solutions beyond sales and marketing

Where Mimiran Excels

  • No sales team– just you (and maybe a partner and/or a virtual assistant)
  • Need for conversations with prospects and customized proposals
  • Lead generation, business development, and proposals all in one system

Look Elsewhere If…

  • You have a smaller sales team and don’t require the full power of Salesforce (consider a simpler traditional CRM)
  • You don’t need to speak to prospects or partners (consider a marketing automation system)
