It’s 10pm. Do you know where you stand against your monthly sales goal?

You would if you had a robust CRM. Just sayin’. 🙂

Sales is a part of daily life for many of us. Chances are that if you’re reading this post it’s definitely part of your life. You work hard to bring in the leads and you work even harder to close them, which means that you spend every minute you have working your sales pipeline. You know you should keep track of what’s going on, but you struggle to make the time.

That’s when a customer relationship management tool, or CRM comes in. It helps you automate a large chunk of your sales life and gives you information when you need it. Like at 10pm when you’re getting ready for bed and you’re stressing out about all the customers you haven’t closed yet. If you had a good CRM, you could pull out your phone (or tablet or laptop) and in seconds you could look up exactly where your team stands against the monthly sales goal and where the best opportunities lie.

But what do you look for when choosing a CRM? At Base, we’re in the business of making sales teams more productive, which is why we started a series of ebooks to help you out.
