File Storage - How Do We Stack Up?

File Storage refers to the amount of storage capacity available for documents and files. Most CRM providers, including OpenCRM, offer their customers file storage outside of their database to ensure there is enough space to store everything.

Here at OpenCRM, we take that one step further. To show you what we mean, let’s take a look at the standard File Storage offerings among three of the biggest CRM systems in the market.

It's Not Easy Being G…

In the words of the world famous Kermit the Frog – ‘It’s not easy being Green’! We at OpenCRM are Green! so imagine my delight when I attended the recent North East Expo and the guys stood next to me were also green. They took the applause, however, as they also has a 6 foot frog with them. Talk about making yourself stand out! But why a 6 foot frog? As I walked amongst the various stalls and exhibitors I regularly heard ‘have you...

Whenever someone says that they forgot to do a particular job, someone will inevitably reply that they should get “some kind of system for that…maybe a CRM.” There’s always a bit of a sigh and a chuckle…I told you it was a sad joke.

But lack of success...

We’re always looking for ways we can improve the service we provide to our customers. Sometimes this is a little tweak to our product and other times it is a little adjustment to our process.

Let me give you an example: a small number of years ago, we were finding that information about new customers wasn’t always being passed across to the project...

OpenCRM is designed to cater for a wide range of business challenges. Different clients tend to use the system for as diverse a range of problem solving as you could imagine – some will use the out-of-the-box system for general contact management whereas others like to focus on a specific function and carry out extensive custom work, designing this to meet their exact requirements. Working in the Projects team, I get to help these customers in reaching their goals for their...
