How the Basic Features can Set Your Sales Team Up for Success

    If you are still using a spreadsheet to manage your leads and contacts or writing your sales notes by hand, it is time to seriously consider implementing a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application for your team. A CRM provides you with a simplistic and user-friendly organization of your sales records, from leads to activities, calls, and emails. Your sales team will easily be able to see who they need to reach out to with custom list views displaying which prospects they have not contacted and the last date and time they contacted someone, so they can follow-up appropriately. If you still need convincing, take a look at these stats provided by G2’s Learning HubCRM applications can help increase sales by up to 29 percent, sales productivity by up to 34 percent, and sales forecast accuracy by 42 percent. The data speaks for itself and should provide a little nudge to think about if a CRM is the right move for your team.  

    If you are small sales team, all the bells and whistles that come with the big-name CRM companies can be overwhelming and expensive. Sure, having a CRM brew you a pot of coffee while you are on the phone would be nice but is it really necessary? We are exaggerating here, of course, but it is important to understand where your business is now and where it will be in the short and long term. You may only need the basic features a CRM provides like lead, contact, and opportunity management and automated activity capturing in the short-term. However, in the long-term, you may want to consider adding in some advanced features like automation and artificial intelligence. That is why it is ever important to choose your CRM wisely and to think of it as an ongoing partnership with your CRM provider. Your service provider should want you to be as successful as you want yourself to be.
