3 reasons why Pipedrive is the best Nutshell CRM alternative

Ease of use

Great salespeople need to be focussed on selling, rather than wasting time navigating a CRM interface that slows them down. Pipedrive outscores Nutshell CRM on both Capterra and G2Crowd review sites for ease of use. Our intuitive UI provides a visual representation of the sales pipeline from prospecting to closing, saving valuable selling time and boosting sales.

Sales pipelines

Having the flexibility to switch between multiple pipelines is a functionality all CRMs should have. Pipedrive has unlimited pipelines across all plans and allows you to add deals, contacts and activities to your pipeline with our smooth and intuitive drag-and-drop interface. Nutshell CRM limits the amount of sales pipelines up until their top plan, which starts at $35 per user per month.


Keeping your data safe is of paramount importance to any business, and it’s equally important to us. Unlike Pipedrive, Nutshell CRM doesn’t offer two-factor authentication or single sign-on as standard, two key security features to protect you from dodgy users and devices. Pipedrive also allows you to set visibility groups and permission sets to keep data secure internally; sales managers can choose which information their sales reps can view and the actions they can take.

The ability to completely customize the data fields and workflow gives me a tailor made CRM. Much different than my past experiences with these types of programs! The mobile app is just as functional as the desktop version, and even has a few little extras.

As a long time user of SFDC and other CRMs, I love the simplicity and intuitive nature of Pipedrive. My favorite feature is the automated pop-up forcing the next step.

Pipedrive mixes features and design that allows our team to streamline our operations. It was very easy to get up and running with Pipedrive compared to SalesForce.
