freshworks-pricing-(formerly-freshsales)-–-what-do-you-get?

Freshworks CRM offers three different plans: Customer-For-Life, Sales Cloud and Marketing Cloud. The first is a kind of amalgamation of the Sales and Marketing Cloud, with an increased contact allowance. Within these three plans, you’ll have three tiers to choose from: Growth, Pro and Enterprise.

sendinblue-vs-mailchimp-–-our-complete-comparison-guide
