I say Free, but wold pay $29. I need to tele-market to the media and need a program that can have list of follow-ups calls I need to make, once I have filled it with calls I will have made.

What tools are there for this?

I am a Mac user so this must work on a Mac OS, or via browser.

Thanks

I suggest Zoho CRM:
https://www.zoho.com/crm/

It's free for up to 10 users, 1GB of storage, and 25,000 records (along with some other limitations):
https://www.zoho.com/crm/comparison.html

All of their products are cloud-based, so it works fine via a browser. Regards, Joe

I am not ready for customizable since I surely have simple requirements. I would rather have full featured and be free.

If I am the only user, and I have hundreds of contacts, that sound like Zoho would be fine for me for a very long time.

Do I understand this correctly?

Thanks

> Do I understand this correctly?

Yes!

You do not need to customize it if you don't want to — it is robust and full-featured right off-the-shelf. The only customizations I've made are adding a few custom fields and a few custom reports — but I could easily get along without those. I've been using it personally for many years and have never paid a cent. Doesn't mean that Zoho won't change their minds about that someday (as the LogMeIn folks did with their Free version), but there's been a Free edition of Zoho CRM for approximately the last 10 years. So, yes, for just your use and just hundreds of contacts, it will likely be free for a very long time (but no guarantee, of course).

In terms of being full-featured, I know of one small company that replaced the relatively expensive Salesforce CRM, which is extremely full-featured, with the relatively inexpensive Zoho CRM, and felt that it was just as good. Regards, Joe

> How is Zolo for iPhone and Mac OS?   [It's Zoho, not Zolo]

I don't know from personal experience — I have neither an iPhone nor a Mac. But since all it needs is a browser, a Mac should be fine (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). In terms of iPhone, check out their mobile apps:
https://www.zoho.com/crm/mobile/sales-app.html

I think the mobile apps are also free, but I'm not sure — I don't use them. But at the web page where it says "Free Edition 10 free users", it also says, "Leads, accounts, contacts, feeds, documents, mobile apps, and more."

Regards, Joe
