Why you need a CRM
Why do you need a customer relationship management solution? Well, according to Salesforce, a leading CRM platform, simply because you can grow your accounts faster, find new customers faster, and close deals faster — from anywhere.
As competition becomes fiercer, building relationships with potential customers has become more challenging. In order to become successful, you need to recognize and make the most of each stage in your sales pipeline.
At some point it’s impossible to track all your customer relationships. That’s why sooner or later you need a computer system to help you handle everyday tasks and stimulate business growth (I’m sure you don’t want to limit your business with your memory).
Since you are reading this blog, I’m sure you know the reasons for using a professional email marketing platform (it allows you create beautiful emails that look great on any device, send automated follow-ups, or even create, publish, and host high‑converting landing pages – to name a few).
But do you know why you should be using a customer relationship management software? Let’s take a look at some of the most obvious reasons.
Keeping your team informed
A CRM system keeps all the customer data in a central location. Your team has constant access to activity history, key contacts, customer communications, and internal account discussions. All you need to do is provide the right people with access to the information that allows them do their job.
Making better, data-driven decisions
With a CRM system you can instantly dig deeper into sales intelligence. You can quickly access the most relevant data in your sales pipeline, helping you to keep track of all your tasks and events, and allowing you to see what works best and leads to a higher conversion. Look at the leads, opportunities, and prospects you are working with. You can go through each stage of the sales cycle, eliminate potential issues, and optimize your sales strategy. With hard data it’s much easier to predict income and set realistic sales quotas.
Your team of sales reps can see sales intelligence, detailed company information, and multiple leads on a single screen, so they can build pipeline quicker than ever.
You can also design and automate business processes (e.g., approvals for deal discounts or travel expenses).
The system allows your team to share files, discuss them, publish, and track the content in real time. People can quickly find what they’re looking for, share it securely, and even subscribe to receive alerts when something changes.
Providing data security
By switching to cloud solutions you remove data from your devices and keep files on well-protected virtual servers – that allows you to prevent damage caused by fire, water, physical theft, or hackers.
Loosing a laptop is no longer an issue – everything is backed up on the cloud, so you can access your data anywhere you are, using any device.
