GreenRope vs Eloqua

There is no one-size fits all kind of CRM, but when it comes to your business, you want to get the most bang for your buck. Shopping around and trying out a few different platforms is encouraged, as that gets you familiarized with the process of CRM and marketing automation implementation. It also highlights the fact that CRM and marketing automation are two sides of the same coin. One cannot be effective without the other in place. Some of the more expensive marketing automation solutions, like Eloqua, require costly integrations with your CRM (if your CRM can handle it), and can take up to a year or more to properly set up and deploy. Most businesses do not have the time or money for this kind of implementation. GreenRope offers the best of both worlds, advanced technology at a small business price point.
