Database tools

How easy is it for your customer-facing staff members to be really effective in the field? The right tools can help in a number of ways.

Get Salespeople Out of the Office and Into the Cloud

Many companies only see their salespeople in the office at very specific times. One of those times tends to be admin times. When your sales force is in the office updating their sales forecast, completing expense reports, and doing other admin work, they are not out selling. By implementing solid database tools there is an immediate increase in productivity and that productivity could translate to more deals, more profit, and more growth. When looking at your options for tracking the various leads and deals in the sales funnel, you need to look for more than just a solution that’s cloud based. If you want to compete in today’s competitive landscape, the right CRM tool can help with that. Take the time to carefully review your CRM options before making any sort of commitment.

Pick a CRM that Grows with You

With so many database tools advertised online, how do you identify which solution is right for your company? It’s important to ensure that a tool will be easy and cost effective to implement but also that it will have the capability to grow with the company. Beyond finding something affordable with great features and bells and whistles, you’ll want to be sure that the tool doesn’t require a long term commitment, holding your company hostage for 3-5 years or longer. Does the CRM integrate with often used tools like e-mail, your website, and your social media accounts? How does it make your salespeople work better, and your customers happier?

How Will it Work Outside the Office?

Successful sales organizations aren’t sitting in the office waiting for the phone to ring. They are out and about working at closing deals. Access to the right info via a CRM can help them succeed. When looking at database tools, be sure to choose something that lets your company’s sales force spend as much time as possible out bringing in profits. The right mobile capabilities make a difference.
