Marketing Automation

Amongst all Salesforce alternatives, Agile stands out rock solid in marketing automation in the CRM world. It offers exhaustive features, from the traditional to the cutting-edge, to suit all the marketing needs of modern businesses. Agile's flagship features like its drag-and-drop campaign building tool, multi-step campaigning and automatic campaign triggering, offer powerful automation and ease in building and tracking complex campaigns.
