:copper is, and always has been, a CRM specifically for G-Suite. It’s gone through many incarnations over the years; since its founding in 2011, it’s grown from a widget that existed solely within your Gmail to a full-fledged CRM with contact, lead and opportunity management, multiple pipelines, custom field, dashboards, automations and reports. And, of course, it’s still got its Gmail widget. :copper continues to update its platform; in 2017, they added new features to the CRM including the ability to send and reply to emails (previously users had to return to Gmail), added Slack integration and upgraded its opportunity management features, such as custom Opportunity field layouts specific to particular pipelines. Users could already create custom fields and customize field arrangements for Contacts, Leads, Opportunities, Tasks and Projects. The added feature accounts for opportunities progressing through different sales processes within the same company. :copper doesn’t offer a huge range of features but it performs within its range quite well. If your business relies heavily on G-Suite -- especially Gmail, Google Sheets, Docs and Calendar -- then :copper offers an accessible CRM, with a familiar user interface, and powerful features for its weight class. Its most prestigious selling point the fact that Google is a customer; even for a CRM that caters exclusively to G-Suite, this is an impressive name on their resume. It’s a well-designed platform that’s deceptively easy to use and has ambitious plans for further development. Besides their 2017 update, their CEO has indicated plans for machine-learning features, and future integrations with QuickBooks Online, Xero, Zendesk and Vonage are in the works. If your company is invested in G-Suite, or is willing to, and you’re also in the market for a seamless CRM, :copper’s 14-day free trial is definitely worth a try.
