Having CRM functionality without integrated quoting functionality is like having a car without an engine. The goal of every marketing piece, every phone call, every initial meeting, is to get the prospective customer to the point where they want a quote from your company, because the quote is what turns into an order and that’s why you’re in business.
Proper CRM should help you:
Proper CRM is not just about automating marketing tasks and keeping track of opportunities. Good CRM is a strategic tool to help senior management plan for the present and get in front of growth issues:
If you talk about truly managing a customer relationship, then you have to take a 360’ view of your customers. Pre-sales activities impact true project profitability and must be tracked, information captured as part of the sales process needs to be readily available to the fulfillment team and the sales person needs to know if the status of current projects or customer issues will impact a pending opportunity.
This can only be accomplished if CRM & quoting are part of an overall PSA software solution.
