  1. It seems like Salesboom.com has taken a step towards the future with this study, instead of just developing what they think clients want, they’re doing the research so even those who don’t speak up will get the most user friendly CRM Software.

  2. We lost time and money as well. We could not get the president to even return a call to fix the problems with the software. Total disappointment , with this company. We will stay away.

  3. Several of the conclusions derived by the so called study is garbage. Any person can see that this is fluff to promote a software program on how to improve the relationship with there customers. Businesses still have to focus on CRM software programs that provide the ROI.

    As a “past” customer of Sales Boom., CRM companies that can not provide any customer service should not be trying to tell us how to handle our customers, especially when they can not do it for themselves. Sales Boom was a complete bust for us and I would run away from them. Save the money. Until Sales Boom proves that they can provide good customers service.

  4. I believe this study is great even if it was bluff! Also it seems that those who are disappointed in Salesboom are it’s competitors!

  5. Product is a disaster. We had all kinds of problems from the outset.
    Site is down for long periods of time (6 business hours one day this week).
    Program is not even remotely user friendly.
    No customer service to speak of.
    Don’t waste your valuable time and money.
