Are you considering Salesforce? Make your decision with clear and concise benefits. All you have to do is scroll down!
If you are in business, regardless of the vertical, and you are considering moving forward with a customer relationship management (CRM) tool, then you have, no doubt, heard about Salesforce. This worldwide leader in cloud-based CRM allows you to support your organization by providing the power to share data from anywhere, anytime. All you need is a mobile device with internet access.
Now, what does this truly mean for your business...Let’s cut through the jargon! If you are currently on a server based IT system, chances are, your sales team is equipped with laptops. After each day, your dedicated salesmen will head home and spend an extra hour or so working on entering in the data that they have collected from their visits, appointments and sales calls. Needless to say, you are probably well aware of this daily chore, as most sales teams share their displeasure in losing family time to data entry. Once the data is entered into their laptops, most will have to connect to the company VPN and upload their data into the central system. Since most companies do not ask their sales teams to perform this tedious task daily, the data only gets synced up to the system at the head office once a week. In turn, the exec. team can only begin evaluating and making critical market decisions based on data that is, at that point, a week old… Sound familiar?
Well, Salesforce allows you to forget about all of that.
How? Because this system lives in the hands of your entire sales team, giving everyone access to real-time information. Your company’s top decision-makers will be confident that the information that they are looking at is the most recent and accurate. Salesforce provides your company with the real picture, instantaneously.
Since Salesforce runs on the Salesforce1 Sales Cloud, your system is 100% web-based, trusted and secure. No one can access your information except for you and your team. Another beautiful thing - you don’t need your team to be physically present to get your goals organized. You can quickly and easily define roles and permissions with different security settings and views.
Salesforce is accessible to your entire team right through their mobile devices, through the Salesforce 1 app. This allows them to enter leads, look up prospect and client information (ranging from telephone number to address to actually seeing the map of where they are) to opportunity records, quotes, communications they have received and more. On the fly, reps can quickly click through and enter their call notes, share important sales information on chatter and keep everyone focused on the sale.
Back at the office, all the information entered by your front line team is directly accessible to the inside sales team, accounting, finance, marketing, operations, production and more.
Real-time data for real time business decisions.
Salesforce helps break down the silos of departments and provide true information sharing, which improves your customer experience as well! Anyone who has worked with any client can see the history, see the issues and the realities of the given account.
Ok so this was probably more information than you were looking for...Want the version in brief? Here we go!
