What is a mobile CRM?

A mobile CRM (or M-CRM) tool enables field teams and remote workers to access and complete the information in the CRM from a smartphone, tablet or laptop with an internet connection.

In this way, salespeople and technicians on the move remain productive and keep their colleagues informed of the progress of the projects for which they are responsible.

Mobile CRM software enables sales forces and marketing teams to consult and enrich customer relationship data at any time.

What makes a good Mobile CRM application: key features

#1 Contact management

A mobile CRM needs to provide access to all contact information, and enable it to be modified or added to remotely.

Every member of staff must be able to open customer files, and be able to find customers’ full contact details, as well as the URL of their website, the history of telephone and email exchanges, previous and upcoming appointments, and products purchased or offered.

#2 Smooth scanning

The purpose of a mobile CRM application is to make it easier to get in touch with prospects, at any time. Immediate downloading of contact information from a business card is essential, reducing the need for time-consuming manual data entry.

With easy numbering, there’s also no risk of losing information when re-entering it into your CRM tool. What’s more, rapid data entry means that an entire team can immediately access the customer file and add to it.

#3 Lead management

Lead management enables you to identify and manage hot prospects in order to close as many sales as possible, thanks to lead scoring.

A good mobile CRM tool enables sales forces to focus on the most interesting prospects. It also makes it possible to automatically update customer data in real time as soon as additional information is added, or new contacts are added to the CRM tool.

#4 Transaction management

This essential feature of a mobile CRM solution enables employees to identify and manage current transactions. By filtering transactions according to their potential to turn into an actual sale, you instantly know which transactions to act on immediately to close the sale, and which you still need to follow up.

#5 Gmail and Outlook integrations

Integration with your e-mail inbox is essential for a CRM tool. It lets you generate notifications when a message is received from one of your customers, and respond immediately while keeping track of this activity in your CRM.

This way, you can share with your colleagues the essential information from your exchanges with your customers, and avoid duplicate responses (in the event that one of your colleagues also responds to the prospect), even when you’re on the move.

#6 Transparent interface

The mobile interface of a CRM solution must be different from that of a desktop version. Indeed, on mobile, CRM needs to be easy to use, and designed for a mobile experience, not a copycat version of the desktop interface. On the one hand, they need to adapt to the device being used (smartphones, tablets…), and on the other, they need to provide functions that are useful on the move.

Needs on the move are often slightly different from those in the office, for example, you may frequently need to take voice notes, receive push notifications, or quickly find a customer’s telephone or physical contact details.

#1 Salesforce

The undisputed leader in mobile CRM applications


Salesforce has been around since 1999, and is now a leader in the field of CRM tools. Thanks to acquisitions such as Tableau in 2019, Salesforce offers powerful tools with virtually unlimited functions. Salesforce’s interface can be customized to create sales processes tailored to your needs and work habits. Mobile integrations let you use Salesforce on the move.

The mobile application for iPhone and Android is very comprehensive, but a little busier than other mobile CRM solutions. You’ll find the full range of Salesforce functionalities, including livechat, queries and dashboards.

Advantages & Disadvantages

  • A seamless mobile experience.
  • Easily update tasks and accounts on the move.
  • Offline data access via the application.
  • Too many options and features, which sometimes get in the way of navigation.
  • Limited options for changing the status of opportunities and quotes via the Salesforce mobile application.
  • From within the application, accessing a lead’s history and sharing its URL are difficult.


  • Essentials from $25 per user per month for a ready-to-use CRM tool for up to 10 users.
  • Professional from $75 per month per user for a complete CRM tool, whatever the size of your team.
  • Enterprise from $150 per month per user for a CRM customized to your needs.

#2 Monday

Keep track of your pipeline and projects on your mobile

Monday is basically project management software, with a strong emphasis on ease of use, information sharing, and excellent visibility over multiple workflows at the same time.

So much so, that more and more sales teams are using it as their CRM, and they’ve been quick to formalize a whole host of things to deliver a true CRM experience to small, agile & fast-paced teams. It’s a far cry from the advanced reporting on Salesforce, but really, hardly anyone needs those reports anyway.

Their mobile application is truly a benchmark for all B2B software. Just because we deal with complexity doesn’t mean it has to be complicated to read.

Advantages & Disadvantages

  • The mobile app is super comprehensive
  • Ergonomics unrivalled on the market
  • The software is free for up to 2 users
  • Reporting does not go as far as with solutions such as Pipedrive or Hubspot
  • No digitization of business cards (yet?)


Monday offers a free plan (forever) for up to 2 users. No false freebies or limits that are reached after 3 days, this is a true free CRM, our favorite even. On the other hand, to access mobile applications, you need to upgrade to the Basic plan, which starts at $10 / user / month.

Then there are 4 paying plans:

  • The “Basic” plan at $10 / user / month: gives access to mobile applications, advanced reporting, and time-saving template creation.
  • The “Standard” plan at $14 / user / month: this gives access to many automation features and integration with other software. The challenge is to increase productivity.
  • The “Pro CRM” plan at $24 / user / month: more reporting, calendar synchronization, dashboard, sales pipeline review, … Pure CRM functionality.
  • The “Enterprise” plan for large structures: prices on request, but a far cry from SFDC’s $300/license.
