If you’re like most business owners, you’ve thought about ditching the traditional Excel spreadsheet for a more versatile and efficient CRM solution. The spreadsheet is practically ancient technology at this point, and has not fully kept up with rapid growth business needs. Cloud-based CRM solutions are agile and constantly improving to help you know your customer. With the new wave of CRM software, data like contact information, sales cycle and status of conversion can all be accessed on any device at any time—that’s the power of the cloud.
Research by Salesforce shows that the average business that implements a cloud-based CRM solution sees a 29% increase in sales, 34% increase in prospecting productivity and 42% increase in forecasting accuracy. If that’s not enough to convince you switch to the dark side, cloud-based CRM software even has the power to track your customer’s social media activity. This allows you to obtain valuable information about your customer and demographic that wouldn’t have been possible with a traditional spreadsheet application.
