Soffront CRM folks are quick to respond and help solve even the easiest problems. We were able to get up and underway in a few days. We continue to build our knowledge of its usage and are utilizing more not only for a CRM but as an active email marketing tool.
Soffront CRM was quite easy to upload our prior contact and client information.
On the initial uploading of contact information, you can only manage duplicate based on emails or company name. We would like this option to include the contact name or unique ID.
As this is our first CRM with the firm, it is easy to use, easy to build and their easy templates help us to launch quick emails with little headaches.

This product has great Email templates and mass email features. I often use the Broadcast option to send out new Blog Articles. I also like the Email Automation function to set up more complex Marketing Campaigns.

I can only update contacts and accounts based on their Company name or email address. This is not helpful when I do not have such information, or I have several contacts at the same Company. I wish Soffront would generate and automatic "Soffront ID" so that I could use that when sorting and labelling duplicates, or making updates to contacts and accounts via the Excel upload and update function.
Toni from Event Extravaganza
The vendor is very knowledgeable about the product. I had a few questions concerning if I ended up not liking the software, and they assured me that my concerns would ease after the first week of use.
I least like the price. I feel like a bit pricey. I am very cautious of how our company spends money, so I want to make sure that each thing we invest in will be worth out while and something that we can benefit from greatly.
To go with your gut and get what's best for you! I specifically preferred this product because of the presentation, customer service, and because it did what I was looking for. Always go with your gut and get what best suits you.

I like all the features this product has to offer. Everything was easy to use. I like it and would recommend it to someone.
I wish it was less expensive. For someone who is looking for something very expensive this would not be for you however if you did want to spend the money then I highly recommend this.
Get this product if you have the funds. I would recommend this to someone just as stated above. I would only recommend it if they have the funds to purchase it.
Tree from Lakes Business Group
This product is intuitive for users has been relatively easy to use for our sales force. Our administrative team has been able to make changes to fields and forms that work better for our business processes. The support has been excellent, too!
sending emails with attachments has been slow at times. A suggestion to add to this product is an 'opt-out' option for sending emails, so we don't have to remove their email and save in another field.
know your business and the processes that would be helpful to have automated with a CRM system. Also, in our office, since I am an administrator, it is also good to have one of the 'users' (in our office, it is the agents that have customers) also be in one to evaluate since their criteria in a software product may be a little different than what I need as an administrator.
Pablo from CCH
the CS is effective. The training easy and simple to understand, they will go over step by step one on one. etc
Simple and easy to customize Fields, groups and reports. I like how easy is to use and customize the web forms.
definitely to give it a try, for me the expedite training and webinars were the best part, also the CS. Thanks to those elements I was convince to start entering the info that I needed without regretting to have contracted Soffront when I'm half way done with the job.
Pete from PolySystems
Very impressed with the customer service. Very responsive and they work to resolve any issues.
The application is a little quirky with text displays.
Give yourself time to set up the implementation the way you want.
Bryan from Digisonics
Specialty: Healthcare / Medicine
The customization options are great. The product is very flexible.
Support is not that easy to access. They do not call you back and only email you. Sometimes you submit a ticket and they do not contact you other than an automated response for over 24 hours. Support does not teach much and never offer root cause.
When evaluating software such as a CRM you should think about does it meet the needs of today and tomorrow for your business.
Kyle from Imagetek, Inc.
Specialty: Software / IT
The flexibility of the product and the ability to customize it the way we want to use it.
The product itself is not all that user friendly, new functions cannot be easily be learned on your own, and the documentation is pretty lacking. Typically requires training from Soffront, at a cost, just to fully understand how to utilize different pieces of the product.
get some hands on experience and make sure they fully understand what their needs are before exploring a solution
Mike from Hopewell Baptist Church
When I compare the capabilities to that of other companies in this space, Soffront compared very well and in many respects was a better value. Additionally, it could not be easier to use the software. The application was built to emphasize the intuitive set of tools to setup the software for seamless leads management through email marketing. They have a great product for the SMB user groups.
Adam from MerchantService.com
Soffront¿s highly competitive pricing and advanced customization features made it an easy decision for our company to abandon SalesForce.com. Their easy to use interface simplifies new employee training and allows our staff to better serve our customer base. Having been with Soffront since 2009, I would recommend their CRM solution to any business looking to lower expense and increase productivity.
Been a fan of Soffront for a long time. Their product is incredibly flexible and powerful. It is also very easy to implement and use.
- Intuitive layout and design
- Flexible architecture
- Rich group driven security permissions (object, record, field, and action; can vary at different stages of workflow)
- Visual form builder
- SQL for the experts, and UI for others
- There are some minor tweeks I would like to see, but I know that some have already been implemented in the newest version.
Account Manager - Document Management Company
Soffront CRM is very customizable and front end is sleek.
It has helped streamline our company and made tracking, reporting, and project management easy.
The CRM offers a plethora of customization options and definitely fits our needs.
The project management and support team are quick with response and helpful. Overall would recommend.
- Very Customizable
- User interface is nice
- Reporting and Searches are easy
- User maintenance is easy
- Cloud based
- Web Services
- Linking between tables can sometimes be tricky but support will help and assist
- complex CRM - But worth it for the customization
I have been using Soffront for 2 years now and I think it is a good solution for mid-size companies. The software is completely web-based - it is so easy to handle that I am thinking now to adopt more online software. A special plus for me is that Soffront offers a mobile supported version.
Sometimes I think that the user interface could be a little bit more fresh and modern.
