There were times when businesses used spreadsheets to track sales, customer data, and create reports. However, spreadsheets, as useful as they are, are difficult to update, share and manage. In today’s fast-paced business climate, they are completely outdated. In 2018, easy to use pipeline management system that allows for tracking the entire customer journey, from lead to deal closure, is a must. With an intuitive CRM system in place, you can not only track and manage your customer journey, but also ensure better collaboration between marketing, sales and customer service departments.
Pipeline management software: how it can boost your sales
Track End-to-End Customer Journey
A great pipeline management software lets you easily track end-to-end customer journey – from lead to sales conversion. This not only streamlines and accelerates your sales cycle, but also helps identify the customer touch-points so that you can optimize them for better conversion. Moreover, by tracking your customer’s journey throughout the sales cycle, you get in-depth knowledge about your customer behaviour. Afterwards, you can leverage this information for cross-selling or repeat sales.
Centralize All Customer Data
Businesses that use spreadsheets for managing their sales cycle often find it challenging to keep their data in one place. With a CRM system implemented, all your customer data, including the entire interaction history with your marketing, sales and support executives, stays in one place. This centralized system helps to keep all your customer data up to date and accessible across the organization. Moreover, when your sales and customer service teams have the complete purchase and support history, it becomes super easy for them to explore opportunities for cross-selling and upselling. As a result, they can offer better service.
Automate Repetitive Tasks
With a CRM system, you can automate repetitive tasks and save tons of time. From automated document approval to sending routine emails and notifications, intelligent CRM system can take care of mundane tasks using sales force automation and save you a significant number of man-hours. Moreover, the pre-defined sales processes guide your sales reps with the most effective action throughout the sales pipeline and minimize the possibilities of missteps.
