How's My Spelling?
There certainly are a lot of CRM programs on the market once ACT took off. Now,
everybody and his brother seems to be putting out a program that's an improvement
on ACT (even Microsoft). One of the best is Avidian's Prophet/Profit CRM plug-in.
It's known in major search engines and software retailers by both spellings, but
for convenience's sake, we'll just refer to it as Profit CRM.
No matter how you spell it, Profit CRM has considerable advantages over many other
well-publicized CRM plug-ins for Outlook. Mainly, it's made to run unobtrusively
within Outlook. You click on Outlook and Profit CRM starts right up, too.
You don’t need to open up any other applications or log onto any websites
to get Profit CRM working for you.
Easy To Learn
Being able to work directly in Outlook makes Profit CRM easy to learn and operate.
Profit CRM has gained a lot of praise from customers and from industry reviewers,
like "entrepreneur" and "eWeek", for being easy to use and not
headache-inducing like some other CRM brands. You certainly can't afford to
spend more time learning new software than you absolutely need to. With Profit
CRM, you can get it working in less than one business day.
Customers report that learning Profit CRM took a lot less time than for other CRM
programs they tried (and ditched). There is a free demo on Avidian's website
for you to discover just how easy you can fit Profit CRM in to all of the applications
you use Outlook for. If you rely on Outlook for a lot of your work, then it
only makes sense to get the most out of it that you can with Profit CRM.
Profit CRM hasn't rested on their laurels by putting out one great product. They
keep tinkering and improving their programs with the latest web technologies, while
also keeping up with Outlook's updates. Profit CRM is built on the flexible
.Net platform. The most recent update for Avidian's Profit CRM was in January
There are also actions for your business that Profit CRM can set up as automated
actions for you, such as sending pre-set timed emails to clients. It also
has pipeline management features and SFA (sales force automation) features not available
in some other brands of CRM programs. You can really enhance features like
making sales forecasts and tracking the work of each of your salespeople with Profit
Strength In Flexibility
In many CRM programs, you feel as if they are made with a "one size
fits all" mentality. "If this is good enough for us, it's certainly
good enough for you," they seem to say, especially when you have to switch
to certain email programs and dropped your tried and true email programs in order
to get the CRM plug-ins to work.
Whether it's your choice of email programs or in making personalized reports for
each employee or client, you should be able to have a program flexible enough to
handle a wide variety of choices. Profit CRM is just such a program.
There are two editions for you to choose from, personal or team editions.
Although CRM programs were originally made to boost Outlook, you can use Profit
CRM with other Microsoft programs like Excel, Outlook Exchange or Word. With
improved time savings and added functions in the programs you already use and know
well, like Microsoft Word and Excel, you can use your work time more efficiently
Profit CRM can help increase your profits by smoothing the lines of communication
between your customers, your potential customers, your bookkeeper and your employees.
Profit CRM can be used for a home business, small business or a medium sized business
and Profit CRM is flexible and reliable enough to grow with your business.
Although flexible and easy to use, Profit CRM does not compromise in the area of
your data security. Data is, after all, worth just about as much as gold.
In utilizing the latest internet technology, it also uses the latest IT security

great customer service people to help you through any rough patches.
