A Familiar Set of Tools
Any company should be familiar with a term known as CRM, or customer relationship management. It refers to anything and everything pertaining to customer-company relations: sales, meetings, communication, etc. Outlook 2003 CRM software brings this familiar and powerful set of tools to any company, anywhere. Designed by Avidian, Prophet 5 brings Outlook 2003 CRM to the masses, although it is also available with Microsoft Office versions 2000 and 2007 as well. Outlook 2003 CRM combines the features that companies have come to expect and appreciate with a few new ones for additional functionality and ease of use.
Integrated into Outlook
As the name implies, Outlook 2003 CRM is designed for use exclusively with Microsoft Outlook, and it's compatible with Microsoft Office versions 2000, 2003, and 2007, so it covers all but the oldest computers out there. Outlook 2003 CRM is also compatible with Microsoft Windows versions 2000, XP, and now Vista, meaning that Outlook 2003 CRM is extremely future proof (you likely won't need to upgrade or replace for at least 15 years). However, all of Outlook 2003 CRM's compatibility wouldn't mean a whole lot without a robust set of features, as it has to compete against the likes of other CRM software, such as SAP, Oracle, and Siebel.
The best part about Outlook 2003 CRM is its selling point - it just works with Microsoft Outlook. No stand alone programs, no messy bugs. Working as a plug-in for the e-mail client, Outlook 2003 CRM is easy and intuitive for employees to learn how to operate because it works within a program that they're already familiar at. That means that employees won't need to attend training sessions to learn how to use this software from Avidian. They'll just be able to boot up Outlook 2003 CRM and start filling out the database with all of the useful information.
Because Outlook 2003 CRM is integrated into an e-mail client, the company's contact database will already be partially filled out by using all of the e-mail contacts already stored. With sales, contact, and appointment information all available at a moment's notice from a single program, Outlook 2003 CRM also allows employees to easily draw up a customer's information then immediately e-mail them.
Customer Relationship Management Features
So what CRM features are already included in Outlook 2003 CRM for employees to use? Well, all of the contact information mentioned above is available at a click of the mouse. However, Outlook 2003 CRM has some additional features that will help companies to cut down on wasteful spending and optimize their sales. Sales trends will update in real time to give companies the latest data on how sales have been, while sales forecasts allow them to see pinpoint accurate estimates of where the company will be taken in the months to come, all available through Outlook 2003 CRM.
However, Outlook 2003 CRM has features that will appeal to all departments in a company, so no company will need to purchase different software suites for various departments. Management, accounting, marketing - employees all across the company can use Avidian's breakthrough Outlook 2003 CRM software universally, making a company's CRM database incredibly accessible and complete with all knowledge ever needed.
Furthermore, Avidian's Prophet 5 Outlook 2003 CRM is available on a number of platforms, chiefly the personal, server, and mobile platforms. Complete network integration is more than just possible with Avidian Outlook 2003 CRM - it's easier than ever before. With automatic installation and configuration of the network, both client- and server-side, the IT department won't run into any trouble when installing Outlook 2003 CRM. Because it works with Microsoft Outlook, companies can rest assured that it also has unprecedented stability and security, two issues of protection that are very important in this day and age of data theft and corruption.
Not only is Outlook 2003 CRM stable and secure, it's easy to install, use, and maintain. Its scalability is also impressive, so companies can install it on any amount of computers that they need to.
