I have a list of functionality requirements for a new CRM system. I have run through this spec with a number of alternative CRM providers, who have given answers regarding what their systems can/can't do. How can I run through this list to consider CiviCRM?
Take a look at the recent Idealware report comparing 'donor management systems' and CRMs. I do not believe it is totally accurate or fair to CiviCRM, but it is something like what you want.
CiviCRM members are working on a side-by-side comparison of CiviCRM to 'competitor' platforms, which we hope to publish soon at the CiviCRM.org website.
Could you explain what your requirements are and which platform you would be using i.e. Drupal, Wordpress or Joomla.
It would probably be a good idea for you to start by reading the CiviCRM User Guide at https://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/latest/ This would give you a good basic explanation of what CiviCRM can do.
Hope this helps.
