Compared to Salesforce.com, RapidStart CRM, Powered by Dynamics 365, has no user limits. Just because you user count grows, that doesn't mean your needs changed. With Salesforce, once you hit that sixth user, you have to upgrade to their $75 plan, whether you want to or not.
Salesforce Sales Cloud Essentials may appear to cost less, but once you add that sixth user, their cost jumps to $450/month, compared to only $270/month for six users of RapidStart CRM. How about 50 users? How about an $18,000/yr difference!
RapidStart CRM also includes Project Management capabilities. Industry specific versions and our infamous RapidStart Wizards. Salesforce does not offer these features.
Salesforce.com is a powerful platform, and their Sales Cloud Essentials is a great way to start, but it won't take you very far. Microsoft Dynamics 365 is also a powerful platform, and RapidStart CRM, Powered by Dynamics 365, has no user limits, so your team can continue to enjoy a simple-to-use CRM no matter how big you grow.
Both Salesforce Sales Cloud Essentials and RapidStart CRM are upgradeable to their advanced platform versions.
But once you move beyond Sales Cloud Essentials, your costs can start to go up pretty quickly. In addition to tripling the license cost, Salesforce charges a lot more for storage than Microsoft. For many customers, they point to that factor alone as a key reason for their move from Salesforce to Dynamics 365.
