Managing your customer database

Managing Your Customer Database

Managing your customer relationships is vital to the success of your business; you neglect your customers at your peril. With a small customer base and a simple sales process in a relatively static market a business may operate an effective Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution based on index cards or a simple Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to keep client data. In such an instance, a small business owner may be able to keep client information such as address and telephone numbers in their heads and know intuitively the value of a particular client to their business.
Once we move away from such a simple scenario, matters become far more complicated and require a more effective tool to control and utilize customer information and Microsoft Dynamics CRM recognizes this. The reality of today’s business environment is that we operate in fast moving dynamic markets where customer needs and demands change frequently. Businesses tend to serve a broader clientele while the potential market for products and services has grown geographically as the internet allows businesses to reach out to potential customers and prospects seek a supplier for their needs from greater distances than before.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM software is designed to allow any business to manage customer relationships in today’s modern world which requires business managers to be far more organized than before if they are to obtain the most effective results from sales and marketing activities. Arranging contact information into contacts, identifying viable prospects from that database and managing marketing and sales campaigns tailored to those prospects while retaining control over the process is not possible using simple paper based or spreadsheet methods without a great deal of expensive employee time.

Generating new business has always been the most difficult part of the sales cycle, so organizing contact information in a formalized manner allows businesses to target their business generation activities to where they are most likely to maximize sales revenue. Turning a contact into a prospect and from there to a customer is also the most expensive part of the sales cycle. Once a sale has been generated, that customer is far more likely to buy from you in future. Customer relationship management software empowers a business to effectively manage and control the sales cycle as a client base is established and repeat sales are made. Microsoft Dynamics Suite recognizes that customers become a very valuable asset for any business and managing the after sales relationship becomes a major factor in business success.
Microsoft Dynamics Suite provides an effective CRM solution that allows any business to capture and maintain customer data beyond the basic address and telephone information; examples of the information a Microsoft Dynamics CRM system will manage include a client’s sales history, particular customer requirements, and when it is to be expected that a customer will order in the future.
The benefits of implementing an effective Microsoft Dynamics Suite CRM system can be readily seen when a business starts planning and forecasting for future sales and business growth as capturing and maintaining customer information is not a static process.
With a Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution your business will be able to manipulate customer information so your business can see what is actually happening in the sales cycle. Taking a step back from the sales process and looking at the “Big Picture” may allow you to assess the overall health of your business, but it does not necessarily explain how you are getting the results. While diving into the detail may mean you can see what is happening with a particular customer, it may also mean you are not going to see the wood for the trees.
Microsoft CRM solutions provide you with the ability to assess at a glance the overall business picture and how that is being produced which becomes an invaluable management tool and is a key benefit of a Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution.

The Nokia N900 weighs quite a bit – at 181g and measuring a shade under 111mm x 60mm x 18mm, its 113cc volume hangs heavy in your pocket, however, considering the functions it offers, Nokia have done well to keep the weight down as well as they have.

Other connectability includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and DLNA WLAN, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP microUSB 2.0 and an infra red port – unusual these days in a handset.

For talking to your friends and work colleagues, messaging is via SMS (threaded view), Email, Push Email and IM. The browser supports xHTML, HTML and RSS feeds.

When you open the box, the package contains the Nokia N900 handset, a microUSB charger, a converter for previous Nokia Chargers, microUSB cable, a TV-out cable and a Stereo headset with two sets of eartips. Also in the box is the User Guide and a very useful and thoughtfully provided cleaning cloth.

The speakerphone with stereo speakers and inbuilt standard 3.5mm audiojack allows for listening pleasure while you are working.

The memory in the Nokia N900 internet tablet allows for practically unlimited entries and fields in the phonebook, Photocall and detailed phone records for a maximum period of 30 days.

Why business should have disaster recovery solution plans in place

Why Business Should Have Disaster Recovery Solution Plans in Place

In business, it is very likely that times will come when there would be some form of trouble that would result in a loss of data by companies. A typical example is what happened during the September 11, attack on the world trade center where tons of documents were irretrievably lost. While some companies were smart enough to back some of their crucial data up, others basically lost everything. Imagine a situation where you lose the contract form for a business contract that you really want to any form of mishap. That’s how bad it can get.
Any smart business owner should know that while disasters may not be envisaged, it can happen. Disasters do not necessarily have to be in the extremes such as floods, earthquakes and harsh weather conditions such as whirlwinds or cyclones, it could be just internal fires in the building or mistaken shredding important documents. As a result of the potential harm loss of data can cause, it is very worse to get a disaster recovery solution plan in place. This will ensure that even if all physical documents or data are lost, their soft copies can be retrieved from paces where they are stores.
To effectively plan a disaster recovery plan, certain steps need to be taken. These are:
1. Make an inventory of all potential risks: It is crucial for the IT department of a company to make a list of all potential causes of data losses and the possible solutions. Also included in this should be a list of risks that the company can afford to tale or data that may not harm the company very much of it is lost and those that it cannot with all the preventive measures and damage control measures. If the business is a small company just starting up, the best bet is to hire a team of IT experts to make a quick inventory and present the management with their conclusions.
2. Make a Rating for all of these potential dangers: This is very important in enabling a company decide what is important and what isn’t. A good example of this is a web hosting company with servers locate on site. An assessment of the effects of earthquake as against power outage is likely to show that the earthquake will be ranked fairly low compared to the power outage. So, the rating for each company would be customized to that company as each has its own unique needs and problems.
3. Develop the Disaster Recovery plan: This includes taking note of the time it would take for the recovery plan to be executed and the length of time a company can afford to remain out of reach before losing its customers. For example, a web hosting company that goes offline for just 24 hrs is likely to lose most of its clients to its competition.
4. Test Your Solution: After installing or putting the solutions in place, test the services. But ensure that your clients know about it so they don’t get worried.
