Thinking about HubSpot?

2020 - 05 - Axon Garside - Ebook - HubSpot vs. the Competition

There are a great many CRM systems out there, and choosing the right one for your business can prove difficult. HubSpot is a popular choice, but how does it stack up against the competition?



What to expect in this ebook

We've rated the main CRM players in terms of:

  • Usability: can your team actually use the features within the CRM, or do you need weeks of training just to find what you need?
  • Reporting: a CRM is only as good as what data it can provide, and a system without adequate reporting functionality is going to fall at every hurdle. 
  • Updates: no one wants a system that they have to constantly update manually, or that doesn't update often. When you're looking for a new CRM, you need something that is up to date with product developments, that fixes bugs quickly, and that you don't have to constantly manage.


  • Integrations: if your CRM takes over as your only tool, that's great! But most businesses find themselves using 4-5 tools to really get business running smoothly. For this reason, most companies are looking for a CRM that can integrate with their favourite tools, quickly and easily. 
  • Cost: the big question on every business manager's lips - "how much does it cost?!" A good CRM can set you back a fair bit, and there are definitely some low cost options out there. In this guide, we've weighed up cost against value for money - you might be surprised by the results.
