Jul 1, 2013 VIP Quality Software team continues working on new versions of CentriQS, small business management software that features enterprise-level functionality for task management and database customization.What’s new for spring 2013
Contact Management Program
CRM and contact management program is an essential electronic assistant for all people who deal with managing sales and customer relationships. It helps organize contacts and other business data in one database, manage tasks and projects, and create new custom objects in the database to fit any business needs and requirements. You can use such software to efficiently manage such CRM-related activities as prospecting, lead generation, quoting, invoicing, sales tracking, etc.
Contact management starts with collecting and organizing business contacts so that it will be easier for sales personnel to find necessary records and focus on current deals. Apparently in today's fast-paced world using paper and pen is not efficient for managing contact data. The same way you can't use simple electronic organizers and address books which just store your contacts but not allow you to integrate them with other business data.
In everyday life you have to deal with dozens of phone numbers, addresses, emails and other contacts. Ideally, there should be a contact management program to collect and organize all business data in a database. Then you could find or add needed items with ease. For example, CentriQS lets you create the Contacts view in its database to manage all of your business contacts. The program features full text search that makes it easy to find a contact by a keyword and key phrase in your database. You can add any details for each contact profile including "First Name", "Last Name", "Email", "Address", "City", etc.
Train and Support Sales Staff
Staff training is one of the basic requirements of effective contact management. Salespeople need be educated in CRM best practices in order to know how to establish contacts with their customers. Senior management must provide and clearly communicate training programs that let improve employee skills and knowledge. A better understanding of traditional and progressive methods of sales and customer support will help salespeople set more realistic contact strategies, explore new CRM solutions, and demonstrate improved performance. Besides, good sales training improves employee retention, impacts organizational competitiveness and contributes to fewer mistakes and higher revenues.
CentriQS as Contact Management Program
It is important for employers to provide staff training that is cost-effective and well-controlled. Training effectiveness can be increased through developing a comprehensive plan that specifies all the constraints and requirements (incl. time, cost, quality, scope) that should be defined and satisfied. The following steps help you plan out staff training activities:
Define the need for training
Identify those employees who require training
Identify the skills and knowledge the employees must be educated in
Align your plan with the company's strategy and objectives
Consider if you can involve internal trainers
Task Management Tools for Planning Staff Training
These steps describe a strategic approach. When it comes to planning lower-level objectives and tactics, each employer needs to define the specific tasks and activities that are best aligned with the training expectations. CentriQS can help you in task planning and management. In this program you can create todo lists and tasks organized into multiple sub-tasks. Due dates, several types of priorities, user assignments, timer, templates and other task management tools and other solutions of the software will help you plan and manage your staff training activities.
