If you're a small business or a sole entrepreneur, Highrise is a perfect fit. It will give you ease of keeping track of important conversations and follow up on your sales deals. Your life will never be the same again.
As a business owner I was challenged in keeping tracks of deals and follow up on prospects, having tried all sorts of tools like spreadsheets, calendar plugins and even post-its on the wall but nothing was working. I decided to look at online CRM services, even though most of them are oriented towards big organisations with many employees while we're a two-person service company.
Another small business owner recommended me to try out Highrise, a simple CRM oriented to small businesses and created by the same team that delivered the award winning project management tool Basecamp. I tried it out for free for 30 days and was immediately sold on the easiness of the service. Within that trial period I already saw results in the way we were doing business. We finally were able to keep track of our outstanding offers, follow up on sales negotiations and realising deals. For us, Highrise was the game changer we needed to move out of our swamp.
Once we started working with freelancers, we were able to give them limited access to parts of the service so they could follow up on upcoming projects and extensions of work. Which is truly awesome to stay transparent with everyone involved.
