EliteCRM versus Salesforce

Our Customer Relationship Management solution EliteCRM has been developed by our professionals, specifically for the holiday park industry and is built utilising the latest Microsoft Dynamics CRM technology. That’s why, today we will provide you with all the information you need to compare the benefits of investing in EliteCRM for your holiday park, over the more general business CRM solution, Salesforce.

A brief history of Microsoft and Salesforce
Now, we all know that Microsoft are one of the market leaders in the software and hardware market and have been for 30 years or more. Microsoft’s CRM solution is just one of the many successful software applications that Microsoft have developed and continues to develop over the years.
In comparison, Salesforce has always had a core focus on CRM. Their solution was initially released in 1999 as a ‘sales automatic’ software system. The solution has a particular focus on sales and also provides the business’ with use of analytics, marketing, community engagement and mobile accessibility.
For a brief period, it was believed that Microsoft and Salesforce would combine forces to dominant the market for CRM, but this partnership did not develop and still today they’re each other's main competitor.
