Five reasons to switch from spreadsheets CRM NetHunt CRM

NetHunt CRM is such a great alternative to Google Sheets CRM or Excel that it’s barely a choice.

logo Spreadsheets

You rely on a mix of tools — tables, spreadsheets, task managers, email campaigns, reports, etc. This makes it harder to navigate and match data for quality sales and informed business decisions.

Everything is consolidated in one place — contact information, emails, chats, documents, tasks, reports, and more — all within a single CRM record.

  • Google Workspace integration: Manage contacts, sales, and projects from within the inbox.

  • LinkedIn integration: Generate leads and automate your sales prospecting.

  • Messaging platforms: Get messages from WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook Messenger directly to CRM.

  • Email campaigns: Send campaigns and monitor their impact on the sales pipeline.

Collecting metrics is a manual, error-prone process, leading to unreliable data and limited insight into team performance.

  • The system tracks and reflects every change made by managers in the customer's record.

  • Allows you to limit fields that can be manually changed and set required fields that can’t be missed.

  • You can control the team's data access through roles and permissions.

icon Better sales automation capabilities
