Just as the title says, Clientr is a super simple app for tracking clients and your deals (projects) with them. In addition to that, Clientr is rocking a very sexy Mac-like interface that I love seeing in web apps. Read on to see what we think of the app and how it could help you track your clients and their projects.
Clientr’s home page alone gives you a good indication that the app itself will have a Mac’ish interface, simple, clean and a pleasure to use. The app makes it a breeze to track clients and the projects you have with them, a refreshing take on client management after trying out so many complex apps trying to do too much.
The dashboard gives you a perfectly simple and lovely overview of your clients and related status.
Pricing & Sign UpClientr pricing starts at $6 per month, up to $24 per month for unlimited deals (projects) and team members. As per the usual, they also offer a free 14-day trial so it’s definitely worth signing up and checking out.
Not to worry, no payment information is required for the trial period. Once you’re satisfied with the app during your trial, you’ll be able to sign up for a monthly billed plan.
Sign up only takes a few seconds, requiring the basic info. Email activation, however, is required.
User Interface & Usability
Once logged in, you’ll be directed to your dashboard which will display an overview of your projects’ history once they’ve been entered. From this point we can tell the user interface design is very simple and generally well designed. Once we dig in a little deeper we’ll find out how usable the app really is.
New Deals and/or Clients
A “deal”, as Clientr calls it, is the same idea as a project, though I do like that they’ve called it a deal considering how I use so many apps dealing with “projects”. From the Dashboard you can click the +, in the top right of the main content column, to create a new deal and associated client.
Alternately, you can click the deals button in the top navigation to view all your deals and create a new deal from there.
If you’d rather start by creating a new client without an associated deal, simply navigate to the clients page and click the + from there.
Once you’ve created new clients and/or projects, you’ll be able to view an overview of them via their respective pages.
After you’ve entered some deals, you can update their status via the smooth drop-down once you’ve clicked either update status here or the deal title area.
Within this drop-down panel you can also update the details of the deal or view its history.
Overall, Clientr is, as they said, a very simple app for tracking clients and associated projects. I can imagine the app needing a few more features and a little heavier AJAX integration to make it a little more seamless to use. However, if you’re just looking for something simple with a great interface design, this is an app you’ll want to check out.
Clientr has a great start but could use a few improvements, so an 8/10 seems an appropriate rating with a good potential at bumping that rating up as the app matures. Be sure to check out the video preview to see the app in action!
