What you don't get
The focus on simplicity comes at a cost: The company offers sales options that might not work for you.
Oprius, for example, doesn't support group sales. You have to go outside the system to split up contact follow-ups. There's also no reasonable way to sync your calendars and tasks on Outlook or Google with those on Oprius. BlackBerry and iPhone users would have limited access to their information.
And there's no way to completely turn over your company communication to this program without integrating it with your existing IT infrastructure, which takes time and money.
Oprius is planning to add many features down the road, but I suspect a sophisticated sales effort could overwhelm this tool quickly. So before you sign up, make sure it can handle what you need it to do.
Oprius is impressive and cheap. For sole proprietors trying to get on top of their sales game, you can't go wrong at $15 a month.
However, you can expect major tinkering to get this thing to run as it should. You'll be forced to take a long, hard look at how badly you track prospects, convert leads and focus your efforts on the bottom line.
At the end of the day, selling is work. Oprius can make the schlep easier.
