6 Ways to Become Part of this Exciting New Trend
Join the Integration Revolution!
There are many benefits to business VOIP – it is low cost, it requires virtually no upfront investment, and it offers a global reach that most traditional phone services cannot begin to compete with. In addition to these immediately apparent factors, however, Voice Over IP calling systems are also popular because they are easy to integrate with other types of business software. Below, we have listed a few of the most important types of software that compliment VOIP perfectly:
1. CRM Software
Customer Relationship Management, or CRM as it is commonly called, is designed to help business owners guide their customers and potential customers through every step in the customer lifecycle in the most efficient manner possible. Even in the era of cyber commerce, phone calls are still an important part of the customer lifecycle for a huge percentage of businesses. And this is why VOIP/CRM integration is so handy. Keeping metrics on caller information, purchasing trends, and frequent questions, for example, can help business owners make critical improvements.
2. Cloud Backup Features.
In the era of big data, customer information is everything. Keeping phone numbers, email addresses, purchase history, etc. on file facilitates effective marketing. And seamlessly recording, storing, and displaying this type of information during every customer phone call can help improve efficiency tremendously.
3. Human Resource Management Software
Not all incoming calls are from customers! A growing business should also be concerned with recruitment, hiring, and fostering strong relationships with rising stars in the organization -- and a good HR software suite facilitates effective management of these issues. The advantages of integrating HR Management software with your communication center suite should be just as apparent as the benefits of integrating it with your CRM software!
