Mobile CRMs — How to Use it Successfully & Why it Sometimes Fails

OnePageCRM: Review

What is OnePageCRM?

OnePageCRM is a web-based sales automation customer relationship management (CRM) solution that is used by small businesses to automate their sales processes and streamline it. With one-click lead capture from various sources (Gmail, LinkedIn, etc.), you can also integrate with a number of third party lead generation, financial, and communication applications for 100 percent sales automation.

Intended Users

OnePageCRM is a simpler CRM than the huge solutions you can find made for thousands of employees. This CRM was created for catering to small businesses.

Deployment

  • Web / Cloud / SaaS

Platform(s)

  • Windows
  • Mac
  • Linux
  • Web Browser (OS agnostic)
  • Mobile

Features

Users can achieve 100 percent sales automation through the integration of OnePageCRM with a large number of third party lead generation, financial, and communication applications.

The CRM’s system’s contact management feature allows users to consolidate business contacts and merge duplicate entries. The interactive sales pipeline ensures you need only enter minimal data manually when adding new deals, while providing a distinctive view of the sales funnel.

This CRM also enhances sales collaboration by sending notification emails to each member of sales team whenever a new task is assigned.

Sales Management For You and Your Sales Team

The secret to sales is completing sales actions — OnePageCRM will keep you focused on taking action. With Action-oriented software (as opposed to a huge amount of graphs and charts), you don’t need to worry about so much manual data entry and analyses. The simple dashboard is efficient and easy to read and use and is intended to remind you of the next action to take in your Action Stream, so you can take real business action rather than considering a graph for a week without acting on it.

Contact Management for Sales Teams

With all of your business contacts in one location, it is easy to remain organized in this CRM. You can stop having your contacts being trapped in individual cell phones, and email accounts alone will not make your business efficient. With the Contact Management feature, you can have all of your contacts’ information in one place so you and/or your team can be on top of every opportunity.

OnePagCRM also allows you to merge duplicates in the contacts. This means if you had already put a contact’s email address in your contacts but you also have their phone number, you don’t have to erase any — simply select the two contacts and click “merge duplicates.”

Lead Capture

Creating and capturing leads is easier with lead clipper and social media details at-a-glance.

  • Lead Clipper

With this feature you can clip lead details from the web with a single click. This creates what is called “Next Action,” which makes sure that you follow up on it.

  • Email Inbox Lead Clipper

When you receive an email from prospects, you can quickly capture their details from Gmail, Google Apps Mail, and Outlook.com (Hotmail and Office 365).

  • Other Social Sites

You may also grab a new lead’s details from their social media site (like Facebook, Twitter, XING) and profiles and send them to the OnePageCRM.

Sales Team Collaboration

Closed-loop sales and collaboration are important to winning more deals. OnePageCRM’s Sales Team Collaboration feature is a way of making it simpler for your team to collaborate: they can share actions, delegate tasks, notify others when important notes are stored, and more. This is especially important when there is a team trying to sell to multiple people on the client side.

Integrations with your Business Systems

Integrations are a huge part of whether your CRM succeeds or not. Every business needs to integrate with some sort of third party application whether this is an accounting software, web forms, email campaign apps, video conferencing, email platforms, or automated workflows.

OnePageCRM allows you to connect your CRM to your crucial and favorite business systems and applications. This will continue to simplify your sales by being able to have your business systems “talk” to each other, from marketing, invoicing, project management, and so forth.

Sales Forecasting

Not all deal pipelines are made the same. While OnePageCRM does not offer a huge breadth of analytical options, it does offer an interactive pipeline that will give you a very unique view of your sales. By helping you to predict, motivate, and close more deals, you can view your deal stages funnel and see how you are performing.

You can add deals, too. Data entry and management is kept to a minimum and all you need a few details.

Mobile CRM Apps for Android and iOS

As with any CRM worth its salt, OnePageCRM offers mobile CRM applications for both iOS and Android. It is important to have your important information on hand at all times in the world of business. The simple and effective mobile CRM apps means that your sales team can stay on communication and workflow no matter where they are.

GTD-based Design

GTD stands for “Getting Things Done,” for better focus and productivity. This is an organizational method that was created by David Allen and his productivity principles to sales are applied to this CRM through the design.

  • Capture and Organize

Using the Lead Clipper, you will collect contacts that require your attention. Organize your contacts with statuses, tags, and set a “Next Action” for each contact.

  • Mind Clarity and Focus

You can use the CRM application as a trusted system to remind you at the right time of important actions you must take. This way, you can focus your attention on more important things without worrying about missing anything you have to do later in the day or week.

  • Productivity

Stress-free sales productivity can be difficult, but you can help yourself achieve it by continuously deciding what action to take next as soon as you complete an action — this way, you’ll never stay stagnant. You will always be moving.

Negatives

One negative of OnePageCRM is that it is a bit light on its reporting abilities. This means you may have to export into Excel in order to perform any detailed analysis. However, if you have chosen this CRM to use, it’s titled should have prepared you for a lighter software with more simple features.

Plans & Pricing

Pricing is simple. There is one plan to choose from.

Price: $12 / user / month (or $11 / user / month — 1 month is free with annual payment)

  • Unlimited: Contacts

Take Your CRM to the Next Level: Integration, Personalization, and Customization are the Keys to Success

Capsule – A CRM That’s Easy to Swallow: Comprehensive Review

What is Capsule?

Capsule is a customer relationship management (CRM) software that looks to make CRM simple by offering six core capabilities to run your business. Managing Sales Pipeline, Managing Relationships, Organizing Emails, Saving Contact Histories, Completing Customization, and Performing Task Management — these six core functions and features makes this software simple, smart, and easy to use from its cloud-based deployment.

Intended Users

Capsule CRM is perfect for SMBs (small-medium businesses) that are looking for a powerful but simple to use CRM software that will give you the core components to keep excellent relationships with customers and clients as well as perform task management, organize your emails, manage your sales pipeline, and offer you customization to fit your business and industry.

Deployment / Platform(s)

  • Cloud, SaaS, Web
  • Mobile App (Android, iOS)

Mobile

The Capsule CRM Mobile App is available for iOS and Android devices. The features of this mobile function can be found in the section below.

 

Features

Capsule CRM includes the following functions and features in both plans that will allow you to manage your business, manage customer relationships, market, and improve the efficiency of your business.

 

Contact Management

Managing your contacts is one of the most important parts of running a business, and this CRM has a host of options in it’s six-feature core that will do the job right.

  • Sharing Contacts

Share contacts and client information with co-workers, which will make sure you have one, single, up-to-date view of the contact. No more confusion or duplicate files.

  • Attach Documents and Notes

With this feature, you can easily add notes about conversations with customers, meeting outcomes, clients, and how the contact is know to you (a customer, vendor, potential business partner, etc…).

In addition, you can attach documents such as agreements, proposals, and other files.

  • Import and Export Contacts

If you already have a contact list and are just buying Capsule CRM (which is very likely), they make it easy to import those contacts from: Gmail, vCard, Outlook, spreadsheets, and any CSV file.

  • Categorize Your Contacts

You can categorize your contacts using tags that you can define yourself — this makes tagging easy and relevant for your business. Tag contacts as a vendor, customer, lead, etc… You can  even customize Capsule CRM to record information when another tag is applied. For example, “lead source” when a person is tagged as a lead.

  • Attach Emails

Track your email communications by sending emails from Outlook or any email client into Capsule. The email becomes a part of the contact’s history along with any attachments. This makes it easy to find in one location.

Tasks & Calendar

  • Create Standardized Process

If you have any standard processes (or SOP) like the way you approach a sale, you can configure these as “tracks” in Capsule in order to enable the same set of tasks to be followed for each case or sales opportunity. Each task in a “track” can be linked to a previous one.

Ex: A “call back” task can be set as due 5 days after an “initial call” task. This means that you can automate when tasks appear so you can keep yourself on track without stressing out about timelines and being late.

  • Tasks for Any Occasion

Create new tasks for meetings, phone calls, appointments, submission deadlines, and much more.

  • Link Tasks

You can link up tasks with cases, contacts, and opportunities so that it is easier to refer back to what the task was about – it’s easy to forget when you’re so busy.

Sales Pipeline

  • Share

Share sales opportunities with team members and co-workers for collaboration.

  • Up Front Summaries

Receive a quick summary of opportunities on-the-go through the sales dashboard — this includes: potential values, where they are up to, and what needs to be completed next.

  • History

Keep track of the history of an opportunity by adding notes and attaching documents.

  • Keep Track

Keep track of where sales opportunities are at — use milestones such as: prospect > meeting > proposal > won, etc… Each milestone is linked with a “success factor” that is used to forecast potential sales revenue. Capsule CRM includes a standard set of milestone variables that you can configure with your own.

  • Reporting

Generate extracts and reports from the pipeline using configurable filters.

Customize Capsule

  • Custom Fields

Extend your tags with custom fields that are relevant to your business and industry. If you sell to customers through partners, you can add your own fields to the customer tag to record who the introducing partner was and the date of introduction.

  • Customize Process

Customize the sales milestones and process.

  • Customize Contacts

Personalize contacts and users with avatar photos and tags in order to make each contact and user unique and easily recognizable.

  • Personalized Design

You can even brand your Capsule CRM account using your own logo and colors.

Mobile App

With the Mobile App feature of Capsule CRM, you can do just about all you need to do on the move. With up-to-date information, the ability to begin emails or calls from a contact’s profile, to data and contact history, Capsule Mobile App makes your work a lot easier to start even when you aren’t at work.

  • Syncing

Even when offline, Capsule Mobile App will sync any changes you make once you reconnect to the internet.

  • Manage Tasks Remotely

With the highly effective Mobile App, it is simple to know what tasks are upcoming and which are overdue, at a simple glance. With a status separated list, you can see what tasks are due today or overdue so you know what you need to get done next.

  • Comprehensive Task View

This allows you to actually create, complete, or assign new tasks to your co-workers or team — this means you don’t have to be at work to assign new tasks — you can do it all from your Mobile App.

  • Contact Management

You can access, update, and add data, even when you are offline. Start any emails or calls you need to make directly from a contact’s profile (or view a contact’s location on the map), directly from the Mobile App. There is also a great filter which allows you to search or filter tasks by tag or owner.

  • Latest Activity

You will have the latest information on your app, which is always kept up-to-date.

  • Data

You can view your history of calls, emails, and notes about any contact on your Mobile App. You can also keep track of sales opportunities and tasks as well.

Additional features include:

  • Vital Sales Pipeline Data at A Glance
  • Granular Opportunities
  • Quick Search
  • Opportunities Sorted by Milestone

Add-Ons and Integrations

What makes Capsule so great is that not only does it provide six core functions and features for a powerful and simple CRM, but you also have the option of adding on functions and integrations in order to extend this CRM’s functionality to your needs. Let’s take a look.
