21 Oct: 5 Areas To Optimize Your CRM

A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system is arguably one of the most important tools in an organization’s arsenal. It keeps everyone across the organization on the same page, providing insights into all of the relationships and interactions of various departments, while providing reporting on historical performance and future opportunities.

01 Oct: Making a Business Decision? Trust Your Network.

Over the past decade the buying cycle for business-to-business (B2B) deals has slowly shifted to what it is today. Gone are the days of cold calling and sellers owning all the power by controlling the entire sales cycle. Now, buyers have all the facts that they need to make a decision at their fingertips before they’ve even chatted with a sales rep or seen a demo of the product.

One of the major causes for this shift is the explosion of information available. You can easily find details on any product, how it has been used, and how happy…

23 Sep: CRM Data Problems? You’re Not Alone.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platforms are incredible tools for keeping organizations organized and on the same page about their dealings with prospects, customers, and partners. They allow for one unified view of all the organization’s activities on individual and corporate levels and provide insights into how deals are progressing to forecast upcoming sales revenues, and the interactions and satisfaction levels of customers for retention purposes.

02 Sep: 3 Things Better Than Entering CRM Data

Recently we published an Infographic around research conducted with hundreds of sales professionals that uncovered the average sales person was spending 5.5 hour each week simply logging contacts and activities into their CRM.

With so much time wasted each week populating CRM systems with the necessary data, we wondered how else could someone be more effectively spending their time if they leveraged a data automation tool.

Here are 3 ways to spend your time more effectively once you’ve been freed from logging activities and contacts inside your CRM:
