Mobile CRM is a customer relationship management tool for mobile devices such as a tablet or smartphone. Regardless of location or mobile device, mobile CRM has changed the way businesses operate. It provides information in real-time to those who need it when they need it and can provide an organisation with a competitive advantage.
Mobile CRM provides field-based employees and remote workers with the opportunity to share data, update sales opportunities, access working schedules and follow up activities so that they can quickly and efficiently work whilst out on the field. Without a mobile CRM strategy in place, field-based employees would have to wait until they are back in the office to update the CRM system.
Does your business need a mobile CRM strategy?
The use of mobile devices within an organisation has rapidly grown in recent years. Real-time information has become the minimum expectation from business software and is critical for a business to stay competitive. Mobile technology has enabled businesses to stay connected with field-based or remote workers.
If your business has a cloud-based CRM system, connecting your sales team or field based employees to your CRM system is straightforward. All they need is access to a web browser through their mobile device.
Most commonly, mobile CRM is used by sales teams and field based technicians. It has changed the way customer data is accessed and used and has become an important tool for organisations and customers demanding information there and then.
Mobile CRM software can represent more than accessing a CRM system over the internet. It’s a great starting point for a business to implement a mobile strategy to include mobile apps. For example, an asset management app with the data synchronised with the CRM system.
