Enterprise CRM software is a powerful suite of tools that provide your team with valuable data and customer insights. As pipeline management software, CRM helps you manage your customer relationships better and track leads as they progress through your sales funnel.
But any software is only as good as the people that use it. Your team needs to use your CRM software effectively to get the most out of the technology.
When everyone is on board and using the CRM properly, you’ll have a number of ways to improve visibility throughout your sales pipeline and your organization.
Quickly Generate Visibility Into Leads
CRM automation tools give you fast and transparent visibility into your sales pipeline. Let’s say you’re at a tradeshow and get a business card from a lead. Instead of someone manually inputting that lead’s information into the CRM system, today’s CRM tools let you scan the business card and immediately import the lead’s details into your system.
This automation saves a ton of time (imagine having to input information from 50 business cards), reduces the chances of manual data entry error and makes the pipeline of leads visible to the right people right away.
Identity Strong Opportunities And Weak Links In The Sales Pipeline
Businesses gauge how near they are to closing a deal by looking at where a lead sits in their sales cycle. CRM software helps you track leads as they move through the buyer’s journey.
With aggregate data on all your sales, you’ll know the likelihood of a deal closing. For example, a lead that’s stalled for six months may not be pursued as diligently as one that is moving through the various steps of the sales cycle.
Your can define your sales methodology in your CRM software based on percentages to close. With the right setup in your CRM system (and with everyone following the process) you’ll quickly see which opportunities are most likely to close.
