Software Recommendation

Posted on 2011-04-27

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good CRM program.  I work for a Temporary Staffing Agency and we are looking into getting a program that could help keep track of applicants, clients, open jobs, etc... and provide an interface that's easy to work with.  Would prefer it be an inhouse program that we can host, not an offsite web hosted program.  Any suggestions?

    I would have recommended you Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online but as you want to go for an inhouse solution, I think you could give a shot to SugarCRM.

    Thanks everyone for your responses but I think I may have worded my question wrong when I stated I was looking for a "CRM".  We're looking for something that's half CRM and half employee tracking.  Something we are looking into is a program like, minus the payroll and web hosting.  Has anyone used that or something like it?

    Expert Comment

    I would still suggest - there are plenty of employee tracking and every other kind of plug-in available (many free) within the Salesforce Ap Exchange
