Happy Burns' Night

12 January 2017 Written by 

Everyone remembers to wish people a Happy New Year or Merry Christmas when the season approaches, but what about the other, more regional or country specific holidays? Let's say, for example, that I would like to wish a Very Happy Burns Night to all of my Scottish clients….how can I do this in the most efficient way?

In the words of Mel Gibson in Braveheart..’ FILTERING !!’

The ability to filter the information or data that you have stored within OpenCRM makes you more efficient.

For example… If I would like to if I would like to email all my Scottish friends I would simply create a view that only displays’ Billing Country Equals Scotland’, this would then display all my clients that are in Scotland. I can then Multi Select them all and send them a ‘Happy Burns' Night’ email.

This is the same process if I want to wish my clients a ‘Happy St David's, Happy St George's, or Happy St Patrick's Day’ in the case of my British customers. This January, I could also use this to wish a Happy New Year to my contacts in China and a Super Bowl Special Offer to my American contacts.

The ability to filter the data that you have stored is imperative to being able to work and communicate efficiently.

Specifically targeting a certain audience or market place means you are supplying correct information to the correct people at the correct time leading to better results and who doesn’t want that?

Happy Burns Night to all our Scottish friends…. Enjoy your neeps and tatties wherever you are!!

In the words of the world famous Kermit the Frog – ‘It’s not easy being Green’! We at OpenCRM are Green! so imagine my delight when I attended the recent North East Expo and the guys stood next to me were also green. They took the applause, however, as they also has a 6 foot frog with them. Talk about making yourself stand out! But why a 6 foot frog? As I walked amongst the various stalls and exhibitors I regularly heard ‘have you...

Always Record your Ac…

We have a long running (kinda sad) joke in the office. Whenever someone says that they forgot to do a particular job, someone will inevitably reply that they should get “some kind of system for that…maybe a CRM.” There’s always a bit of a sigh and a chuckle…I told you it was a sad joke. But the root of our vague amusement comes from the idea that, when we forget to do something, it probably is because we didn’t make a note...

Humanity seems to thrive on failure. The news pages are filled daily with stories of defeat, misadventure and mishap. Business launches that flop spectacularly or a tech invention that goes wrong - for whatever reason we love to read about that kind of thing. In fact, at certain levels we have come to expect failure. Sporting fixtures for our national team or the Eurovision Song Contest are occasions where we almost relish the prospect of not winning. But lack of success...

We’re always looking for ways we can improve the service we provide to our customers. Sometimes this is a little tweak to our product and other times it is a little adjustment to our process. Sometimes these process modifications mean that we need a new way of capturing information in our own OpenCRM system. Let me give you an example: a small number of years ago, we were finding that information about new customers wasn’t always being passed across to the project...

OpenCRM is designed to cater for a wide range of business challenges. Different clients tend to use the system for as diverse a range of problem solving as you could imagine – some will use the out-of-the-box system for general contact management whereas others like to focus on a specific function and carry out extensive custom work, designing this to meet their exact requirements. Working in the Projects team, I get to help these customers in reaching their goals for their...
