Is Insightly priced right for
the needs of small businesses?

Insightly, like other CRM vendors in the market, started out looking to solve the needs of small businesses. However, looking at their current pricing plans and feature set, it's clear that Insightly has made it harder for small businesses with limited budgets to use a CRM. Why do we say that? Let's take a look.

While you get the basic contact and deal management features with the Insightly Plus edition, features like built-in telephony, workflow automation, and custom dashboards are only available in their next pricing plan at $49/user/month, which is seven times the cost of one Bigin user license. Insightly Plus also has limited customer support that only includes email, with no access to phone support whatsoever. This has been rightly pointed out by Insightly's customers in many of the popular software review sites. If your requirements are simple and you do not need a full-fledged CRM for your business, you'll get a better deal by choosing Bigin instead of Insightly—how can you justify spending $3,480 per year if you are a small team of 10 people looking for the right CRM for your business? With Insightly not offering any refunds, you can end up wasting both your time and your money.

On the other hand, Bigin is truly built and priced for small businesses. Bigin scores high in terms of ease of use and functionality.

We were so impressed by Bigin’s ‘perfect fit’ for small organizations and we have now consolidated all information about our clients and projects in Bigin. It's impressive to see that such an affordable product helps in managing duplication of records, customizing fields specific to our processes, providing dashboards to manage the performance of emails, and even linking up with the Twitter accounts of our clients. Read the full case study

I am super impressed with Bigin. I was looking for a simpler lead management and automation tool and I have finally arrived at the right platform after trying multiple tools in the last few years. It has completely transformed the sales process and I regularly recommend Bigin to my contacts.

I want to sincerely thank the entire Bigin Team for developing this excellent platform for SMBs who are quite keen on getting rid of excel datasheets. My primary requirement was exactly the same, and Bigin has offered so much more. This has increased the overall productivity of my sales team, and I have already recommended Bigin to friends in different sectors.

I found Bigin extremely easy to learn and utilise. I was bit scared if my assistants will able to learn it quickly. But to my surprise they have started using fully within 2 weeks of time. Mobile apps and its connectivity with server is superb and quick.
