Why are CRM’s important?

Time is the killer of all deals. How often does it feel like you have just spoken with someone within the past few days, and in reality it has been weeks, a month or more?

Salespeople are constantly juggling new leads, customer relationships, active projects and life in general.

How Data Visualization Helps Your Business

By Kelcie McKenney

Every company has a wealth of information hidden away in their numbers. Sales figures, customer engagement, inventory counts—they’re all pieces of the bigger picture, powerful insights that can bring to light answers that help your business succeed.
