Prospecting and Marketing
Our prospecting CRM module carries out all the administration involved in regularly contacting potential customers, also known as ‘prospects.’ The system acts as an organisational tool, and provides sales staff with the information required to ensure machinery prospects are being contacted on a regular basis, with material that is of interest to them. It also enables the sales team to be more effective by providing information at their fingertips about the prospect, their requirements and past conversations or contacts.
The urgency of the contact is made clear using a colour code, you can then view the full prospect of each contact made to the customer to gather any important information you may require about the prospect.
Each machinery prospect can be segmented into a series of interest categories, allowing you to generate reports and target marketing material towards certain trades or interests, meaning your campaigns have greater impact and you're not wasting resources on 'blanket marketing'.
GDPR is supported allowing the level of marketing material to be controlled.
