Essential Contact Management Apps

Every lead management software choice will provide some direct marketing options and essential information organization such as names, phone numbers, and the like. Still, quality customer contact software will go even further.

The following three elements have the greatest potential to boost your company’s performance.

1. Fields that can be customized

Software that lists the most basic information on a contact misses out on a chance to dazzle a client.

A contact management solution with customizable fields for extra details — such as the fact that a client truly appreciates features A and B about your product — will give you the edge in your next phone call to a home in on what the consumer cares about and increase your chances of closing the transaction. It helps you move from sales to relationship management.

2. A graphical dashboard

With so many clients to deal with, it’s easy for a contact manager to become lost in the vast amount of data available.

This can lead to sales being missed — not just because you lose track of clients who are ready to close, but also because you make a sales pitch to a client at the wrong moment and drive them away.

Your sales team’s performance can be considerably improved by a visual sales dashboard that puts all client information on one page.

3. Automated systems

There are a variety of great technologies accessible today that we didn’t have 20 years ago, and automation is one of them.

When you use software with automation features, you can keep track of when you’re doing what you’re doing.
