Salesforce Communities PRM vs. Elioplus PRM

Compare Salesforce Communities vs. Elioplus PRM, a free alternative to manage your partner network.

Salesforce Communities are essentially multi-purpose portals that can be used either for employees, customers or partners. Therefore, if you’re looking to manage your partners only you might end up with paying for features that are not important to your business. On the other hand, it can provide you a good solution if you need to build an employee portal as well.

Salesforce Communities are available only in specific editions and also have some limitations on the roles and number of communities. While you can transfer leads from your Salesforce CRM it doesn’t mention any other integrations on their website so it makes it difficult for your channel partners to integrate their CRM system to seamlessly transfer deals and leads between their CRM and your partner portal.
