What Can a Well-Designed Zoho CRM or Act! CRM System Do for Your Company?
Each organization has its own reasons for exploring a customer relationship solution, and the benefits will vary from business to business.
Why CRMs are Crucial for Manufacturers
Constant demand for lower prices and streamlined processes are creating difficult challenges for manufacturers. It doesn’t help that the sales team is often given the least attention in manufacturing environments. Most manufacturers understand the importance of keeping their shop tools well-maintained and modern, but it’s equally important to examine the tools used by the sales team and implement a CRM system that is designed to support your needs.
With more and more buyers turning to the internet to locate alternative options for manufacturing, it’s more important than ever to maintain positive customer relationships and retain your current client base, as well as build a digital presence to attract potential buyers. A CRM system improves on both of these. Additionally, tracking sales data over extended periods with a CRM system can lead to more accurate sales forecasting, preventing disappointments and providing increased stability for your business.
We also find that many manufacturers have an ERP system which is vital to their business operations. Many of these can be integrated with the CRM solutions we provide, giving you the necessary flow of data to keep your team on the same page. We also find that many ERP's contain a CRM component. However, CRM in ERP is often an afterthought and the CRM component typically lacks flexibility in deployment options, customizability, and the tools your sales, marketing and customer service teams truly need. Don’t fall into the trap of using a tool simply because it’s there. Instead, be sure to find the right tool for you and your team.
CRM Systems for Professional Services Lead to Great Customer Experiences
Professional service providers rely on creating excellent customer experiences. The ability to provide tailored advice and keep clients happy has a huge impact on success, and one bad customer experience can have them reconsidering who they do business with. A CRM system can help you manage your customer relationships, giving you instant access to their information in real-time. This not only helps your employees develop a more personalized relationship with clients, but boosts productivity and reduces the risk of frustrating experiences.
A CRM system does more than just help you nurture your existing customer relationships, it can also help you develop targeted marketing campaigns for expanding on those relationships and generating new ones. With endless opportunities for streamlining the sales process and nurturing customer relationships, a well-designed CRM system for professional service providers like lawyers, accountants, financial planners, insurance agents, engineers, designers and consultants can mean the difference between flourishing and floundering in more competitive markets.
Customized CRM Solutions for Any B2B Industry
From large corporations to small businesses, a CRM can help reduce costs, grow revenue, boost productivity, and streamline processes.

In environments where losing a customer can put a significant dent in your bottom line, it becomes increasingly important to ensure that there are no gaps in your customer data that can lead to a frustrating experience.

Act! keeps me on task. It provides a way to see what I’m doing right and where I need to improve. Since using it I’ve gotten to know my clients better, which allows me to personalize my service to them. It’s that “personal touch” that creates exceptional client satisfaction.
