Reading, England, 08 February 2013
Tomorrow People, a leading UK Inbound marketing consultancy based in Birmingham, has selected British Cloud CRM provider Workbooks.com to replace its Salesforce.com CRM system after two years of using the Salesforce Professional Edition.
Tomorrow People will use Workbooks to manage its customer details and interactions. They will also be using the Workbooks integration with Hubspot, a cloud based inbound marketing tool, thus enabling them to take advantage of all the marketing analytical tools within Hubspot in conjunction with the CRM functionality and automation provided within Workbooks.
Alistair Norman, Director at Tomorrow People commented, “Workbooks is not only far more cost-effective than Salesforce.com, it is also more intuitive for our users and much easier for us to customise. We also like the fact that Workbooks keeps our customer details in the UK compared to Salesforce, who kept all our data in the USA.”
Tomorrow People’s choice to move to Workbooks from Salesforce follows a number of other customers who have made the same move. Workbooks makes it easy to migrate Salesforce data across to Workbooks and the Workbooks team has extensive experience in this area, having employed 2 senior consultants who previously worked in the Salesforce Services and Implementations team.
Workbooks Sales Director Ian Moyse said, “Having used Salesforce myself in the past I recognise it has a lot of functionality, but it also carries a lot of cost not only in the license, but in the 3rd party implementation and on-going maintenance required. We offer customers a system that is easier for users to adopt and that is often a 1/3rd to a 1/4 of the licensing cost without compromising on functionality and features.”
Alistair Norman continued “We were impressed by the breadth of functionality in Workbooks, the fact that we are dealing directly with the vendor, and how easy they have made it to migrate from Salesforce. Like many, we initially opted for a big brand name and quickly realised that it comes with cost and complexity.”
