What can CRM do for my business?
As well as having all your customer information in one place, CRM can help with
Sales Force Automation
Track your opportunities through all the stages in the sales process, with a view of all contact made with the customer. This may include emails, phone calls and mettings.
Not all businesses have the same sales process; Define your Business Processes and make CRM work the way you do.
Create campaigns, send emails and make phone calls. Once the sale is complete your job is not finished.
Use marketing automation to nurture your relationship with your customers. This can help you sell more of the same product to your customers (up-sell) or even sell additional products to your customers (cross-sell).

Once you've sold products and/or services to your customer, you'll want to support them.
Track where your support requests are coming from (email, phone, social media) and activities created to help resolve issues. Create knowledgebase articles, contracts, entitlements and SLAs to enhance your support management.
