When is it time to switch from pen and paper to a CRM?
I used to jokingly call myself computer illiterate, not because I didn’t know how to use a computer, but because I didn’t like change.
Not only that, I used to love to handwrite everything, because I thought it looked personal. But then somebody told me that that is like hitchhiking to a job site instead of pulling up in my F-350 Super duty.

Handwriting invoices, may seem personal, but just looks unprofessional in today’s day and age. Handwriting is prone to mistakes, and quite frankly is not future-proof for the next generation.
But there is a world where old-school wisdom meets modern tech. Were goals specific, CRM’s can be used as your secret weapon, to keep the personal touch while skyrocketing your business, past what you’re doing today.

Pen and Paper Crates Unnecessary Bottlenecks
Every lead, every client, and every opportunity counts, so sorting through piles of papers on your desk, or flipping through notebooks might seem like the faster method, but that only applies to you.
Your staff in the field, your employees on the switchboard, have to call YOU to get answers, making YOU the bottleneck. This creates employee fatigue, where employees throw their hands up because you micromanage every move they make instead of allowing them to do the job you train them to do.
This sometimes causes lost opportunities because you’re not making every shot on goal count because you are slowing down the process, sometimes causing customers to defect to faster and more efficient businesses.
Great business software and smartphone apps, such as Selling Lane, helps you take your shot on goal with features that manage customer details, appointment history, and communication all in one place. It’s like having a top-tier player who never misses a pass!
So now instead of creating a bottleneck, you empower your employees to do the tasks, faster and more efficiently. Allowing you time to do the most important job you have, which is thinking about your business so that you can grow it to the next level.
