There’s a few things in life we don’t mind paying a monthly fee to consume. We’ll be the first to admit we can’t live without our House of Cards binge-watching Nextflix marathons. But when it comes to a software tool for business we think a monthly payment is just plain wrong. The concept of a monthly fee for a service which is constantly offering completely new material is one thing. However the thought of paying not for new consumables but for access doesn’t make sense. It gets worse.
Paying For the Privilege
Your business tools are rather static software platforms. Yes updates will be pushed out and yes, being hosted on their server means they worry about the update working right. But that’s about as far as the dynamic nature of these software apps will go. For all intents and purposes the product is the same each month. In fact, the only thing that’s really changing and new every month is the information you add to the system. So when you think about it - you’re paying to access your own information. That’s insane.
We built a CRM that gives you full control over the product. You are purchasing more than just software which you can place on your own website - you’re purchasing support and assistance and staff ready to help you with any questions you have. CRMery provides you an installable zip file and you can easily install it on your website. If you’re not sure about how to do it we’ll even install it for you! You don’t have to pay to access your own information. It all belongs to you.
Renting or Owning
If you look at it from another perspective, its pretty much common knowledge that there are much greater benefits to owning a home than renting one. Renting is often compared to flushing your money down a toilet as once you have paid the rent you have nothing to show for it later. Software is much the same way. If you must pay a monthly fee to simply access the software then you are renting the software. Quit paying and you lose access. You have nothing to show for the money you’ve spent.
At CRMery we don’t look for ways to restrict your access or keep you renting. We want you to own your CRM and we want you to enjoy using it. We provide top-of-the-line software which is an investment in the future of your business. Not an expense. With CRMery your money is not wasted or lost each month.
Often times when you sign up for a monthly CRM you have to agree to be hosted on the company’s server. You don’t have any choice about the environment in which your software runs. This is sometimes touted as a positive as if being hosted on their server is more secure. In rare cases this may be true, however the majority of the time this is comparable to hosting your business critical information on a shared hosting environment. You’re sharing resources, space, and servers with hundreds or thousands of other accounts. If someone else chooses an insecure password and gets hacked…so do you. Not to mention if you’re on a big-name provider they are much more likely to be targeted by hacking attempts.
We want you to be in control. You choose your server, your environment, and your security. You are in full control of the entire software. No worrying about what someone else might do. CRMery runs on the server you control and manage already. Got questions about how to better secure your server? We can help with that as well.
The choice really is quite simple. Don’t fall for marketing gimmicks made by certain monthly-based CRM pricing which shows a very low monthly cost in order to entice you to sign up with them. Your money is not invested, your software is not your own, and you’re paying to access your own information on someone else’s server. Make the smarter choice and buy your software. We don’t charge a monthly fee and the software is yours to put where you like. Plus with our crazy good support you’re never far from help! Purchase CRMery and take control of your CRM.
