Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation The dashboard can be customised in the sense that you don't have to sign up to website tracking, and social media management.

Every Gurgl users account is different because of the information in their CRM, lead tracking and email campaign statistics etc.

One major aspect that can be customised is the email campaign system, users can choose between CKEditor and BEE Editor (HTML & Drag and Drop). Then you can design your own custom templates with either HTML or drag and drop, and tailor this to your branding and design.

Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability Gurgl is a marketing CRM platform accessible 24/7 with provided support from 9:00 - 5:00 every weekday (not including bank holidays) if your price plan includes support. There should be no reason as to why Gurgl cannot meet guaranteed levels of availability apart from when the platform undergoes maintenance which is stated in the privacy policy. The other reason as to why a user would not receive guaranteed level of availability is due to breach of terms of use, stated below:

Customer responsibilities and/or requirements in support of this Agreement include:

• Payment for all support costs at the agreed interval.
• Reasonable availability of customer representative(s) when resolving a service related incident or request.
