Somewhere along the way, CRM got really hard to use. Base isn’t making it any easier. Copper was built with usability in mind, so you get all of the features you need and none complications or bloat.

So why choose Copper?

1. All-in-one CRM without the hidden costs.

Base is pricey, plans start at $45 per user. You can expect to pay extra monthly fees for additional features like email templates, rep activity reporting and Google Drive integration. For a growing team, that can add up quickly. Copper keeps it simple and affordable with options starting at just $19 per user per month and no additional fees for any features.

2. Access CRM right from Gmail.

Copper lives right in Gmail so it automatically captures your email history and associates them to the right accounts. It also notifies you when your contacts open your email so you can plan timely follow-ups. And you get full CRM functionality directly within Gmail: view and update your leads, accounts, and opportunities right from your inbox—never switch between tabs again.

“Love the direct integration with Gmail and being able to stay in Gmail for the majority of my day instead of switching back and forth for mundane tasks.” - G2 Crowd Review

3. Built to increase sales productivity.

How about a CRM that was built to solve the actual day-to-day challenges you face while trying to sell? Yes, we’re talking about wasted time on data entry. Copper automatically tracks and captures contact details, email conversations, tasks, status changes, and more without you having to do a thing. It’s a CRM that gives you exactly what you need—no complicated bells or whistles that distract you from selling activities.

4. Native integration with G Suite.

Copper is purpose-built for Google and the only CRM recommended by Google. No need to adopt or learn a new tool - it feels and looks exactly like G Suite applications. Not only does it sync with your calendar, email, contacts, Sheets, etc. - but it lives right inside your email so you can work leads, create tasks, and close deals right from your inbox.

“If you are using G Suite within your company already the transition would be very easy and does not require much training as you can do a lot with Copper within your inbox.” - G2 Crowd Review

5. So intuitive it requires little to no training.

Copper was built to be user-friendly, beautiful, and easily adaptable to your processes and workflows. It’s so simple and intuitive, your entire team can jump right in and skip the long training sessions. No need for a product expert to guide you through the setup process. A complicated system like Base with a steep learning curve is going to be a tough sell to a busy team. Copper fits into the tools you already use, so it’s a natural addition to your day-to-day workflow.
