  • Simple Systems – The best CRM for small businesses which are no to discuss. It should not be confused with Insightly, as both of them play vastly different roles. One is online, and the other can be used for offline work. The same policy applies to this one. Two free users, 100 accounts, and free customer support along with 100 MB of storage in the free version. It has a vast array of plans to suit everyone’s pocket.

  • FreeCRM – As the name suggests, FreeCRM is the best there is when it comes to entirely free packages for the perfect CRM solutions. 100 free users and 100,000 contacts are what you get when you sign up for it, which then increases to $29 for added memory and better support. The best part about it is that it is free and provides more functionality than those that charge money. It is most suitable for people with relatively small to mid-range businesses. It entirely runs on cloud-based servers, so you do not have to worry about your privacy.
