bpm’online and Salesforce are two CRM platforms with a heavy focus on automated workflow. Business Process Management, or BPM software, is revolutionizing the direction CRM companies are headed with their products. BPM software initiates and carries out “workflows” in any given CRM platform.

Since Salesforce has come out with ‘Lightning’ (their latest CRM interface), it has incorporated BPM notation and automation into the platform. This differs from bpm’online, which is a BPM-first tool with built in CRM, marketing and customer service modules. bpm’online is rapidly becoming the “Salesforce of Europe” and is actually a bigger company overall than leading Salesforce competitors like SugarCRM.

If you watch the recording above, you’ll see that bpm’online is actually an extremely robust CRM platform (just as Salesforce is). One of the major differences between bpm’online and Salesforce is cost. bpm’online is an extremely affordable tool compared to Salesforce and in many ways is just as powerful. bpm’online certainly warrants being in the discussion for, “as good as Salesforce”.

More, Customer-service Focused Comparison Points:

In addition to all-in-one CRM functionlity, bpm’online also differs from Salesforce in that it has full customer service capabilities. At BrainSell, we represent top customer service tools like Zendesk, and bpm’online has almost every integrated customer service feature Zendesk has.
