When we talk about using OpenCRM for sales, we mean a whole lot more than just keeping an eye on Opportunities and sending out Sales Orders…although these are both critical to the job. Personally, I’ve found that using OpenCRM has improved my ability to sell a product. You might think…

We all know the legend Steve Jobs and more recently the work of Tim Cook. But what about Johny Srouji? Heard of him? Didn’t think so. Johny is the senior VP for hardware technologies at Apple. He runs the division that makes processor chips. This is pretty much what makes…

It won’t be any surprise to you that we’ve got a lot of developers (and other techy people) here at OpenCRM who are more than a little “geeky.” There are the sci-fi fans, the comic book readers and the gamers…a lot of those. So when the opportunity comes up to…

Many of the headlines about women in the tech industry are about pay inequality, harassment, and exclusion. These stories all focus on important cases and serve to educate, inform and excite everyone about the ways we can improve culture of the industry as a whole. But it doesn’t stop these…

A very specific set of women were celebrated yesterday across the UK. These women may be astute business minds, leading scientists, politicians, nurses, doctors, police women or military officers, however it wasn’t their professional skills and qualifications that would have earned them high praise yesterday. They would have been showered…

OpenCRM TV Company Ne…

Hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome to this edition of OpenCRM TV Company News......Introduced by our very own William Winter, it's a light hearted look at what has happened at OpenCRM over the past few weeks.

Business Superhero: W…

There are a lot of reasons to admire Warren Buffett: his investment prowess, his entrepreneurial spirit, his philanthropy, his down-to-earth perspective, his devotion to his family—you name it and I admire him for it.  Buffett serves as an example to anyone in business that enthusiasm and dedication are only part of the story when it comes to being a success in business. From watching his business and personal life over the years, there are three lessons that I personally have found...

Your Three Most Impor…

We recently blogged about how you can design eye-catching email templates in OpenCRM. This, together with the ability to track all manner of success benchmarks quickly and easily, makes the Campaigns module an attractive marketing tool. OK, so now that you have the tool at your disposition, you need to decide who to target with your message. It is all too easy to pile data into your system, but without any type of categorization that data soon becomes as much of a...

Personalities: How do…

My colleague Ashley recently published a blog post about how members of our team reacted to some role play we were doing. Which of our colleagues jumped in feet first to act their hearts out and which ones shied away from the limelight?This got me thinking about the wide variety of personalities within our business, how we all fit together and the different implications each of our personalities have on how we interact and work as an effective team. For the...

An Email Template for…

We’ve talked before about how to create and manage your email Campaign, setting up your click through links, and how you can test your emails to make sure they arrive looking perfect in your recipients’ inboxes. But what about actually crafting your emails? Our very own captive designer was recently walking some of our newest team members through the best practices for doing just that. Once completed, we thought that the tools and instructions she’d put together would be ideal for...

The Sky’s the Limit –…

It was brought to my attention this week, through a YouTube post on social media, that Iron Maiden have their own plane called the ‘Ed-force-one’ – a custom made 747 which Lead Singer Bruce Dickinson has been flying for their recent world tour. Obviously being a fan of ‘Maiden, I thought it best to share this on our company’s internal social media channel, ooh how the team loved this! I’m not shocked by this though as it is fair to...

Mobile Framework…so m…

I’ve been with the OpenCRM team for almost eight months now, and in that time I have discovered what a difference our system can make to your daily work life. From managing your calendar and tasks, email marketing campaigns, to so much more, OpenCRM can aid your businesses’ proficiency and giving you piece of mind. One of the best things about OpenCRM though, is how adaptable it can be to suit every business’ needs. Thanks to our wonderful team of Project...

The Summer Campaign H…

Would you like less time in the office and more time doing the things you love this summer – the Euro’s for instance? Of course you would, especially this summer – and let’s face it, this summer is a belter than just about any that came before! The Euros, Rio Olympics, and, of course, Wimbledon! It’s going to be pretty epic. Vive La France ! What would you rather be doing…This? Or This? This? Or This At OpenCRM, we want you to enjoy more free time summer...

Business Superhero: G…

When it comes to the most powerful and influential women of all time, so often we hear about the Beyonces or Victoria Beckhams of the world. Now there’s no denying that these female professionals have clearly become successful and are tremendous at what they do - with billions in the bank and millions of social media followers to prove it. Saying that, most of the team here at OpenCRM aren’t exactly drama queens (although we’ve got a few—you know who you are!)...

Employee Reviews: Per…

When the time rolls around to do your employees’ annual reviews, are your team quaking in their boots or chomping at the bit to get going? Ideally, employee reviews should be a time when you and individual members of your team are able to chat about their performance, talk about how you can work together on their advancement within the company, and resolve any outstanding concerns. Too often, however, this isn’t what happens. In the days and maybe weeks leading up to reviews...

Practice Makes Perfec…

Every month, the whole OpenCRM team comes together to chat about what we’re all working on, preview new development work, and talk about changes to internal policies. We call these catch-up sessions “Show & Tell.” At our most recent Show & Tell, we added something else to our agenda: role playing. Sadly this wasn’t a friendly office game of Dungeons and Dragons (although I know some of the guys would have loved it if it was), but rather a scenario for us...

Our all New Status Pa…

There have been changes a plenty this May at OpenCRM! We’ve been joined by a new project manager, have some great new features coming up for the system, and we’ve even started stocking a new type of biscuit in the staff kitchen. Ok, so the last one won’t really affect our customers directly, but we’re all pretty excited about it. However it is not our choice of elevenses snack or tipple that I want to bring to your attention with this...

Is CRM the Missing In…

Starting up a company is probably one of the scariest things you can do in business. It takes guts, confidence, and a lot of late nights—even after more than 10 years on, I still remember how scary those first few years were. So often when a company is starting out you will hear that cash flow is king, meaning that any costs which are not required as essential should not be implemented. This is often the category that a CRM system...

‘Switch it off and on…

The importance of scheduling some time for yourself as part of a well-balanced working week is all too often overlooked. Some people feel that ploughing through that To Do list takes precedence, forgetting that a break can actually improve productivity and make your time at work more efficient and accurate. You do it for your computer when it over heats, so why not do it for yourself? Here’s a few things I do to stay fresh, keep my processors in action...

Surviving Exam Season…

We are now entering the dreaded exam season, and no matter where you are in the education process, exams are always stressful (don’t believe the people who say otherwise) Many of us here at OpenCRM have loved ones, including siblings and children, who are about to sit exams at school, college or university. Sometimes it is hard when you are about to take an exam, to understand why you are actually doing this and where it will take you in the...
