I'm looking for CRM software that meets the following requirements:
- Web-based (ASP.NET compatible)
- Has an instant messenger feel (e.g. a modal or popup)
- Questions can be sent to our Customer Support department, and the client receives a notification when their questions are answered (real-time)
- Questions can be sent outside office hours so that we can reply ASAP.
Basically, we're changing our customer relationship paradigm. We want our customer support to be as friendly and accessible as possible. We want our reps to get to know the needs of our customers, and I figured a great way to be able to do this is a CRM that's not based on creating tickets, sending emails, filling out forms, or other similar methods but to actually make it instantly accessible from any page, any time.
I've looked at intercom.io, and it's almost exactly what we need for our startup, but it's too expensive for our current budget.
