Base vs Highrise

How do you choose the right CRM for your business when there are a ton of different tools out there? Evaluating each and every tool is difficult, which is why we’ve put together a list of important aspects to review when choosing between Base CRM and Highrise.

Evaluate a number of CRMs

You’ve invested the time and money into choosing the right sales tool, which is why it’s important to include a number of different solutions into your shortlist. This will make sure you find the best fit for you needs. A common mistake by sales managers is only choosing between two tools, like Base and Highrise, without considering that there might be more suitable tools available. As no universally suitable CRM exists, take care in listing a variety of CRMs, and comparing and evaluating the most important factors for your specific purpose.

Make sure your CRM is easy to use for everyone

When you take a new tool to your team, the make-or-break aspect is always the ease of implementation and use. Therefore consider the following factors for each of the tools:

  • How intuitive is the tool?
  • How visual is the tool?
  • Is it easy is it to roll out in a team or does it have a steep learning curve?
  • Is it plug-and-play or does it require extensive technical setup?

These factors will determine the traction that the new tool will get within the user base, as well as the costs related to training and implementation.

Evaluate the mobility of the tool

If you or members of your team are often on the move and attending off-site meetings, take the time to evaluate the mobile CRM apps and their reviews. Native apps are a must-have feature for any CRM, if you want to make sure that your team is always up-to-date on how deals are advancing in the pipeline.

Determine the quality of the support team

Like with any other cloud-based tool, you should never underestimate the importance of a good support team. For salespeople and sales managers alike, informative answers and quick response times to questions regarding the CRM are paramount when slow response times to prospects are potential deal-killers.

Here’s why former Base and Highrise customers love Pipedrive:

  • Pipedrive’s focus on sales activities never lets you drop the ball.
  • Intuitive user interface that makes the tool easy to use.
  • Plug and play - setup takes less than 2 minutes.
  • Highly rated native mobile applications.
  • The quality of the support team

Love this program. It is the only CRM that I actually want to use. Having a CRM that you don't want to use leads to your team not using it. What's the point of that. Pipedrive is built by sales people, for sales people.
