Indeed, Hubspot offers features dedicated to SEO, blog creation, social networks … which is not necessarily in your needs.

As for the CRM part, the software offers the essentials: history of conversations with your customers, contact management, creation of models of mails for canvassing, making appointments in one click, live chats, tables reporting …
