It’s Time to Upgrade from Contact Management Software

calendar Februar 2013 , KalenderThere was a time long ago when contact management products like ACT!, Goldmine and Maximizer provided good value for people looking to manage contacts, their calendar and their activities. But limited functionality, troublesome synchronization of data, and lack of mobile access has now made these products obsolete.  The good news is that there is a completely new generation of products available that are affordable, and offer so much more than traditional contact management systems.

One product that has become a very popular choice among the SMB sector is Commence CRM. Commence is a web based CRM system that operates online via a cloud computing environment, which means there is no hardware to purchase or maintain and no software to worry about upgrading every year.   Commence CRM takes client management to a whole new level, enabling you to not only manage accounts and contacts but also sales, leads, projects, documents and customer service.  Unlike contact management systems that simply manage contacts, Commence CRM is a customer management solution offering departmental functionality to improve how you market, sell and provide service to your customers.

Another significant advantage to using a product like Commence CRM is that the solution is browser based, which means you can access your data 24/7 from any device including a PC, Apple Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device.  Commence CRM is simply the next step up for companies looking to manage more than contacts, notes and history.  Migration to a product like Commence CRM is quick and easy with a minimal learning curve.
