A taste of what our Google Apps clients have to say ...
Why Scarpar chose Solve360 ... Operating in multiple countries we need everything centralised or we will end up with orphaned data everywhere. Google Apps functionality is now so good, that it's made sense for us to move there as our core productivity suite as well as other great functionality. This said, it still needs CRM to be a full system.
CRM is core to our business as we launch as scale quickly in the near future. We were looking for a solution that was tightly integrated with Google Apps, but also wanted idiot proof usability, high level functionality and integration capability. We've had exposure to lot of mid and top tier CRM so have high expectations.
Aside from the usual stuff you'd expect for an IT system and standard CRM functionality, we focussed our evaluation on 2 must haves:
Using Solve360's API access we will create our Solve360 contacts 'on purchase' and then sync our shopping cart contact data to Solve360. It will then natively keep the Google Contact and MailChimp data up to date. We will then expose relevant data from other systems in each customer using the formatted note ... you can just past html into it!.
We don't bang on about our suppliers much (except our engineers EDAG who are also awesome).
For us, Solve360 is Google Apps 'KILLER APP'.

We spent three months trialling different combinations of systems. Solve360 provided the answers we needed I run a renewable energy company in the UK and have been trying to keep overheads down so we can stay very competitive, whilst providing an outstanding client-focussed service. Here's how we do it:
Google Apps for:
Norada's Solve360 for:
Solve works fantastically well. Where there is the odd glitch, the technical support is amazingly responsive using a very friendly forum approach. Clients can be invited in to view project "blogs" as they happen, but can be kept away from sensitive documents. This builds huge trust between us and the client. Its cheaper, faster and better than anything else on the market. But actually there isn't anything like it on the market.
Carl Benfield, Prescient Power Ltd
Easy to implement and use, but still adaptable. We needed a CRM which was designed for the small company. Not an abundance of features, but just what is needed to keep track of our customer contacts. Since we are Google Apps Authorized Resellers, we really wanted it to be fully integrated with Google Apps.
After have been using Solve360 in little over a month, we are completely satisfied and we have also found a way to work with the system that fits our workflow. Solve360 has brought major improvements to our business./p>

Just... "thank you" I've tried many solutions in the market. In the last 30 days we tested 3 different platforms and were about to sign up for Salesforce when we stumbled into Solve360.
This is BY FAR the best solution we have tried. It provides structure but is fluid enough to allow for some serious customization and implementation into your work flow. After spending 30 days creating fields, actions, etc in Salesforce and others, working with 360 seems like a walk in the park.
We are a Real Estate firm and started using Solve360360 just as a contact manager and in 60 days it has become our "go to" application for everything. Property Management, Project Management, Transaction Coordination, Password Storage, Training, etc.
If you have been looking for a solution, give this a try... you will be glad you did (especially if you have tried or have been working with other solutions in the market).
Update 4/6/2011: We've had to contact customer service only a few times with questions and I feel comfortable stating that I have never received such good customer service. Kudos to the team

Exceptional Product and Service, Streamlines Company Processes As a small marketing company, we have a heavy focus on relationship building and word of mouth referrals. Following up and building strong relationships are crucial to our business. We also handle a great variety of project types and client types. We've tried several programs that handled the project management part of our processes but they always lacked the relationship building activities that are so important to us. Since processes make or break a company, we searched high and low for a program that would integrate the project management with customer care. We stumbled upon solve360 and immediately began looking for the "downside". There was none. We could not find a single complaint or negative review of this product. We decided to call their customer service just to make sure that this wasn't too good to be true. They answered every single one of our questions accurately. When we began to get our employees into the program, they were amazed and jumped aboard! They picked up how to use the software right away, so there was no training time involved. Its integration with Google and MailChimp is seamless and is the perfect solution for us. It has streamlined our processes, thus ensuring our continued success.
Thank you from all of us at Shire Interactive!

BEST Productivity Investment I have EVER made :: Solve360 We run a small design and marketing firm and we knew we had to be more efficient as a team and more accountable with our clients. Solve360 is way more than even other 5 star apps in the marketplace. Why? Because it holds your team accountable to the tasks at hand at the same time delivering status updates to your clients. Nothing does all of these better! Are you looking to merge contact lists (a GA downfall)? Solve360 does it ...completely. Keeping project relevant email all in one place...this makes me cry with joy!
Solve360 literally added so much value to my business and in 72 hours it has become the HUB of our team communications.
The merging of media in one place, the ability to keep track via ipad or iphone, this IS amazing!

Great Integration of Customers, Projects and Google Apps We have been using Google Apps for a couple of years now and were excited to find this tool that integrates very well with Google Apps to track contacts and customer communication. This integration seems to be where many other CRM tools fall short. And since our business is mostly project based, we use the Solve360 project blogs along with Google Apps to give everyone involved the same view into what is going on in the project - this works great. My summary: effective tool & great value.
Great Integration of Customers, Projects and Google Apps

Implementing Custom CRM reports using Google Docs
Reports are immensely useful to gain perspective on trends and answer ad-hoc questions. Solve360 has useful reports (Solve360 menu > Report & Update Activities), the ability to create lists (category tags), as well as expanded data reporting (Top view), etc. These catch most of the usual suspects, but remember those days when we hoarded data into Excel where we could slice-and-dice at will? Here’s a working example that pulls your Solve360 data directly into a Google Spreadsheet where you can manipulate them as you please. Sit back and watch Mike run through a real example in the following video. More ...
