By now, it is likely you’ve already heard something about Sage SalesLogix, as a CRM system enabling you to manage your sales, take care of your contacts and excel in your business field. Sage SalesLogix is well suited for high end applications due to its inherent capability to exploit its relational features. Here is an example, if you have data which naturally fits into a table structure, such as orders and line items or even reference data which you wish to access via a key field, then all you need to do is to set up the table and SalesLogix looks after all the relationships for you. At the low end, SalesLogix can be simplified so that your basic contact management and sales force automation applications can use a couple of very simple screens.
With SalesLogix there is no need to keep all your prospects, customers and clients in your head or in limited Excel files, moreover, you have the choice of synchronizing and keeping your data up-to-date in real time – a bonus in a business with high rep turnover rates. Weekly sales reports on paper can be completely eliminated with the pipeline visibility feature of Sage SalesLogix, saving thousands of hours for all your employees, which can be spent on closing deals, valuable marketing campaigns and other things you would rather focus on.
When it comes to your needs, there is no absolutely “perfect” solution, but some options are better than others. Sage SalesLogix database solution allows you to customize it directly to your needs, while saving you money and time by performing procedures which are completely automated through its numerous features. In the long run, SalesLogix would prove to be more valuable and cost effective then simple Excel programs or outdated primitive databases. Most find keeping a record of contacts, without CRM software, too time consuming and cumbersome; there are a lot of errors and duplicates that require continuous clean-up. It either wastes valuable sales time during the day, or chews up your evenings. On the other hand, Sage SalesLogix provides a quick solution, bringing in new leads with much less hassle.
If lead management is a key application for you, SalesLogix offers you the ability to enter lead data as a Lead, separate from customers and contacts. Leads can be sorted and stored without getting tangled up with unnecessary fields. If the lead is promising, it can be escalated into an opportunity and provide you with the basis for pipeline management.
Our clients have previously chosen SalesLogix because it gave their enterprise capabilities that were not a part of ACT! or other similar software. Sage SalesLogix software is indeed the most complete and reliable Customer Relationship Management tool available today for small and medium-sized businesses. Once SalesLogix has been customized to clients’ purposes and needs it was used for several years. If the company lacked an in-house expert capable of training and modifications, or their previous consulting support was unresponsive (which could make even the simplest software daunting), the amount of support, maintenance and training available for Sage SalesLogix, especially from QISYS SalesLogix allowed any business to breathe easier knowing there will always be someone out there that can help you in case something goes wrong.
So what other kinds of pains can Sage SalesLogix resolve? Here are some examples:
“Data entry at the office, say when we get a flood of leads from a trade show, is complicated enough that we can only use temporary help if we have the data entered in a spreadsheet and import it, then have a pro fill in the details.”
“We are trying to move to a wireless PDA version so that our reps have immediate access to the server instead of having to synchronize daily”
“We need a software package that integrates well with Microsoft Outlook. Without this feature custom databases and interfaces can get messy when it comes to integration and customization.”
Most CRM packages provide you with the ability to customize its features and define user-specific data fields, campaigns, templates, letters, etc. The more customization you implement, the more likely it will be that new people will need training. With Sage SalesLogix, customizations can be uniquely designed for you to make sure they fit with the terminology and set-up of your business. Regarding wireless, SalesLogix can works on Blackberry or other wireless devices, such as Pocket PC.
