Administration

Keeping a business running is as much about managing your customer journey as it is about managing what goes on behind the scenes. OpenCRM has the tools you need to be sure your employees are on track and that essential work is being carried out.

Personnel

Stay informed

Keep a track of all of the important details about your employee, from when they started, to details about their benefits package or next of kin information.

Keep important documents and track key dates for employee reviews & appraisals linked to their record, ensuring that nothing is lost.

Track Holiday entitlement and have OpenCRM tell you when an employees allocation has been used.

Employee activities

If you need to track assets that are on loan to the employee such as a mobile phone or company transport, simply enter the details in the data fields already provided. You can even link Personnel records together and hold any relationships between two employees.

You can also keep a history of activities for your employees, as well as a record of all communications, including automatic archiving of all emails sent to and received from the employee.

Finally, you can utilise the security options in OpenCRM to limit access to your Personnel module so that key members of your team can work uninhibited and secure within OpenCRM.

Reports

Keep it all in one easy access location

Build and save Reports, allowing other users to run them to keep abreast of information that is important to them.

Set up permissions to give users full access to export functionality allowing them to export to CSV, Excel or create a PDF output of the report.

Apply a Graph to a Report using the groupings as the main values on the X-Y axis, choose from different graph types and select the way that values should be displayed.

Information when you need it most

Easily schedule your Reports to be run and emailed to you and your team so you always have the information you need, when you need it.

Do you have information in your system you want your customers to see? Schedule reports to be sent to your customers, using your own email templates, to ensure that everyone is on the same page.

Customise and maximise your view

Specify your Reports to be tabular or summary, deciding which columns you need to see (including custom data) & grouping your data on key values as well as sort orders.

Total pre-defined columns and specify criteria to decide which records to include.

Decide if you want to display the Report as a Graph, Summary or Detail or Full, on the home page, setting the specific users who need to view this report.

Make yourself at home

Add your Reports to your home page, positioning them as you see fit.

Choose whether you see the whole Report or just the Graph.

Now you have the power to easily keep track of every aspect of your business, from one convenient location.

The Cloud is Just Bet…

I’m always amazed when I speak to people who would rather keep their data in a onsite server in their office rather than the Cloud. I spoke to someone just this past weekend who was convinced that it was safer because they could see and touch that server in the back room of the office. They knew where it was and what it was doing…or at least knew that it wasn’t physically going anywhere. And I can understand the peace of mind...

Productivity is Drive…

Productivity has always been one of those things that I feel strongly about when it comes to running a business. Now you talk about giving people the right tools and finding the right job role for them all day long, but the one thing that never fails to increase a team’s productivity in my experience comes down to processes. Let me give you an example. Several years ago we had a little problem here at OpenCRM. Our sales team and our projects team...

Protect Yourself agai…

As currencies fluctuate, make sure the Value of your Quotes and Sales Orders don’t. I was listening to a conversation on BBC Breakfast the other morning when something caught my ear: No one is quite sure what the impact of Brexit will be on the strength of the pound. This can create some uncertainty when generating Quotes if you operate using a number of different currencies. Lots of systems, including OpenCRM, have the ability to integrate with an Online Currency Exchange, giving...

Find the Right Approa…

It’s not terribly surprising that a recent study presented to the British Psychological Society by John Hackston found that some people found receiving, replying, and managing their email inbox more stressful than others. The author suggested that different personality types will need to structure the way they approach their emails and to-do lists in different ways. It all makes perfect sense to me (and I’m assuming most of you). I think about the way our “always on” MD likes to work...

Making Your Data Safe…

We are so used to storing data in the cloud, it is simply how things work these days. Large swathes of your personal life are already cloud-based – all your email addresses, social media profiles, photos etc. are likely to be stored digitally. In your home you may also have connected appliances – also known as the internet of things – such as heating that is controlled via an account synced to an app on your mobile phone. But apart...

Happy Burns' Night

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...

From Website Visitor …

Your website is your shop front. You spend time, money, and effort into getting it just right and making sure that people are finding it. Once there, you want to turn as many of these people as you can into actual sales, but first you have to find out a little bit about them. Then you need to nurture that relationship, but I’m getting ahead of myself. Asking people for their contact details via a web form is pretty ubiquitous these days...

Making The Best Use O…

The end of the year tends to be something of an expensive exercise. At home you’ve spent money on food, drinks and presents. At work you have had Christmas parties and a period of closure – all in all it’s not the cheapest time of year. So if now is a time when you are looking to spend a little less, it is the perfect occasion to dig into the existing resources you have to try and make the most out...

Post-Holiday Struggle…

The first week back from the Christmas holidays is almost over and there’s a curious mixture of sadness and gladness at being back at work. There is the tiredness we all feel, the result of a slightly altered sleeping schedule and a week of indulgences and lazy days. Plus you’ve got the slight malaise from bad weather and no bank holidays until April. Finally, there’s the enjoyment that comes from accomplishing something during the day and feeling productive. Some will even look...

Forecasting for 2017

As we approach the end of 2016, it is time to start looking forward to 2017. It’s become a bit of a tradition for me to write a post with a bit of a forecast on what I think the big topics in CRM will be for the New Year. So below are the issues that I think will be the three “big ticket” items in 2017, along with some questions you might want to consider asking your CRM and SaaS...

The Office Christmas …

Last week saw the the usual out of office OpenCRM Christmas Party. Last year we got all dressed to the nines and went Private Dining at Rockliffe Hall so this year we thought how on earth are we going to top that….. PAINTBALL AND PUB!!! We headed off to No Limits Paintball for an afternoon of snipering and target practice for some and lots of ooo’s and ahh’s from others, I was the latter! We had a blast (Pardon the pun)...

Interviewing for a CR…

Whenever I’ve been to an interview, my two favourite questions to ask are: “What is a normal day for someone in this role?” and “What will be your expectations of me after the first three months?” The first question is usually answered with a quick outline of basic jobs and then quickly descends into some of the more quirky, unusual, or random tasks that sometimes crop up. Every time I’ve asked this question, I have walked away with a far better...

Is It Safe To Head Ou…

There are so many ways of receiving the news, and this information becomes so much more powerful when it is designed to answer your questions or make you aware of issues specific to you. One great example of this is Transport Scotland. They have recently worked on developing a website and companion app that lets you know in real-time along which routes their trucks have been gritting the roads. The idea behind the live monitoring is to help give motorists confidence...

Festive Decorations: …

It’s easy for people to get caught up in the festive spirit at a time like this. Some people will want to decorate their desk or the whole office. Others will bring in mince pies and sing carols, nonstop, from 9am on the 1st of December. It can make this cold and dark month feel immediately cheery. But what about people who don’t enjoy Christmas? Or don’t celebrate it? How do you make sure that no one feels left out in the...

Keep those Leads Nice…

Just in case you hadn’t noticed it is now quite cold, I know this first hand as my heating went pop last week (cue the violins). However just because it is cold outside you should still make sure you keep all those valuable Leads nice and warm. By managing your Leads correctly you make sure you get the most out of every Opportunity, whether you are entering your Leads manually into OpenCRM or automatically via your website for instance. Action Plans are...
