How to Migrate from Salesforce to Freshsales Remotely
by Anastasiia Dyshkant

Did you decide to migrate to new CRM? Is Freshales your new cup of tea?


In this post, you’ll get a better understanding of the migration process from Salesforce to Freshasales and Freshasales as a fast-growing product company.



How does Freshsales distinguish itself from Salesforce?


It’s safe to say that Freshsales is the best Salesforce alternative, as it costs less and scales with you.



  • Easier to use


When you sign into Freshsales for the first time, you will see a clean screen with a simple layout that’s easy on the eye. The user interface is intuitive enough to manage on your own without explanation. You are able to adapt to the new CRM solution in just a matter of hours. 



  • Doesn’t switch between multiple tools


You don’t need the CRM and five other tools to guide your business anymore; Freshsales alone will do. With Freshsales, you can get the whole picture of your leads, generate reports, make calls, manage your pipeline, and see lead profiles from one single tool. Forget about switching between multiple tools and pay attention to sales productivity.



  • Increased automation


You don’t need to make numerous entries in a CRM anymore. Freshsales users can quickly and easily get to know their leads by auto-enriching their profiles. Freshsales is looking at this with Smartforms. As you repeat several actions often, it’s easier if the sales CRM does it for you. 



  • Transparent pricing


With Freshsales, you get what you see on the pricing page. Startups can check out a free version of Freshsales that includes unlimited users, contacts, and all-around support. Our plans meet your business requirements and stay friendly with your wallet. Freshsales offers the following editions:


  • Blossom – $12 per user per month, billed annually
  • Garden – $25 per user per month, billed annually
  • Estate – $49 per user per month, billed annually



  • Product Features:


  • Task and territory management
  • Calendar/Reminder system
  • Email marketing

  • Support


Freshsales has free email, phone, and chat support.



  • Built-in phone


With Freshsales’s built-in phone, you can buy local/toll-free phone numbers and assign them to sales reps. In addition, call conversations are automatically logged and linked to the right lead/contact.



  • Email management



Freshsales email management provides you with a range of excellent features, such as the ability to see conversation history, emails awaiting responses, and a shared inbox for sales emails. Moreover, you can track, schedule emails, and create personalized email templates.



Before Migrating from Salesforce to Freshsales



  • Clean up data


Remove all unnecessary data and records before performing a migration from Salesforce to Freshsales. It’ll be easier to work with your future CRM and focus on the needed data.



  • Get secured


Create a backup and retain it even after the migration from Salesforce to Freshsales is complete. This way, you can eliminate any possible data loss.



  • Validation


Make sure you have an active account in both CRM systems to transfer your data.



  • Notify your employees


Inform your team members about the benefits and features of the new platform. If needed, create training courses or arrange informative meetings.
