In this blog article, we're going to focus on HubSpot CRM, and the support considerations you may want to think about.
In today's fast-paced business landscape, as businesses embrace digital transformation and evolution, the realisation of the need for an effective CRM system like HubSpot becomes increasingly apparent.
Numerous factors drive this recognition. For instance, businesses may seek to digitise their operations, attempting to keep up with customer expectations to provide seamless digital interactions. Additionally, organisations that have undergone mergers or acquisitions often need to adjust their systems and processes, making a reliable CRM solution indispensable.
Whilst companies are going through the evaluation process of which CRM to use, many companies will investigate the level of support systems in place to support their employees and users, whether that's with the platform itself, or a partner support network.
Understanding HubSpot’s own Support: The Basics and Beyond
HubSpot themselves, as a software provider, provide a competent, comprehensive support system offering a myriad of channels including live chat, phone, and email. In our experience, HubSpot’s own support team are incredibly responsive and helpful, and in many occurrences go above and beyond in order to support their customers with a range of different situations.
However, many companies we work with find that HubSpot’s own support may lack the personalised touch, the continuity, and the context-aware assistance that a dedicated solution provider support can offer, particularly for businesses operating on a global scale across multiple time zones.
Why is this? Well when you engage with a HubSpot support rep, it’s unlikely that rep has seen your customised CRM setup before, or has any context around why your CRM has been set up in that specific way. Therefore every little change to automations, workflows, structure, architecture - could have wider implications on the rest of the CRM system.
So although HubSpot’s support can easily fix or help build a workflow, they won’t know the wider reasons why that workflow is in place in the first place, and how that may affect lots of other automations in place.
It’s scenarios like this where we see lots of companies work with partners like Huble Digital, who are capable of providing contextual and consistent support tailored to your unique business needs.

Do you actually need 24/7 coverage?
Choosing between HubSpot's built-in support and Huble Digital's personalised, dedicated support isn't a decision to take lightly. It's a strategic move that could greatly influence your business's efficiency, productivity, and overall success.
As you ponder this choice, here are key questions that will guide your decision-making process:
Do you operate globally across different time zones?
Seamless support at any given moment is essential for businesses that span different time zones.
Our 24/7 HubSpot support guarantees immediate assistance whenever and wherever it's needed, ensuring your international teams are not left waiting for support during their active hours. Additionally, this support can be provided in different languages.
Are you dealing with complex tasks within HubSpot?
The platform is multifaceted, and tasks can often be complicated. If your team frequently encounters intricate issues, having a dedicated support team available can dramatically accelerate issue resolution and boost overall efficiency.
Is your HubSpot user base large?
The more users you have, the more likely you are to need frequent support.
If you have a large user base requiring continuous support and training, a dedicated, knowledgeable team becomes a necessity. We see companies with hundreds of sales reps often needing this level of support and guidance.
Are you seeking predictable, accountable support?
Huble Digital backs up its promise of high-quality support with customised Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
These SLAs provide clear expectations, accountability, and firm commitments to response and resolution times, offering you peace of mind.
Are you fully utilising the depth of HubSpot's capabilities?
If your organisation leans heavily on HubSpot for various functions - from marketing and sales to service and operations - having a dedicated support team is vital.
Do you have future scaling plans?
If you anticipate growth or expansion in the number of HubSpot users or in the platform's utilisation, you need a support system that can scale with you.
Choosing the right support for your HubSpot system requires careful consideration of your current needs, future plans, and overall business strategy.
