Capitalize on Customer Relationships
Inform bridges the gap between ERP, the system that optimizes business operations, and CRM, the system that optimizes your relationship with customers and potential customers.
Salespeople and distributors with the right information, at the right time, provide better service than their competitors. Managed Customer Engagement helps build stronger, more loyal relationships that resist simple price competition.
Inform CEM, Customer Engagement Management, puts detailed contact information at the forefront of every engagement with your customer.
Begin customer interactions in the contact CEM screen, briefly orienting yourself with contact notes, A/R, rank, and activity history. Launch a pre-filled sales order or price quote. Get a quick Pivot Table sales analysis or run a sales opportunity report. Instantly answer questions with the one-click order inquiry, price inquiry, and add a follow up activity.
Inform CEM is threaded throughout daily operations, so you can easily add activities to quotes and orders, while creating visibility on individual and group calendars. Your inside and field sales team better manages their contacts and prospects with productive follow-up activities and history. Management gets a 360° view of team activities and sales results.
