Maintaining general information about  accounts and contacts

With the help of the Accounts and Contacts sections bpm’online sales maintains a centralized customer database. The application can be integrated with social networks, enabling you to populate the contact database with information. The features include locating and merging duplicates, customer segmentation and advanced dashboards tools.

The [Accounts] section

The [Contacts] section

Managing communications

The corporate social network of the company is designed for the internal discussion and posting news. Bpm’online sales also provides convenient means for maintaining your work schedule and planning future appointments and tasks. The Activities and Feed sections are designed specifically for handling such tasks.

Managing leads

The Leads section is designed to manage both new and existing customer needs, and to monitor the sources of each lead.

The Leads section is based on the unique lead management process that you can use to “nurture” leads – from winning a potential customer, through qualification and distribution stages, to handoff. After you added a lead, the system will check the data, create a new contact and will guide you through the lead management process suggesting your next possible steps.

Managing orders and invoices

The Orders and Invoices sections allow you to make orders within bpm’online sales, to control payments and monitor their progress. The information display is conveniently arranged to provide maximum information to designated employees.

Features like including a product in an invoice or an order, forming an invoice based on an order and document approval – make working with a large number of orders easier. Analytics tools allow you to quickly assess the situation with individual orders and with companies in general.

The Products section of bpm’online sales maintains information about product prices. Products can be added in the system manually or by importing them from an Excel file.
