With Less Accounting integration, you can view invoices for each customer including payment status, due date, and amount owed within the customer’s record. When you work on projects and tasks, you can easily and quickly create an invoice with the click of a button. Each task assigned to a project will be added as a line item on the invoice, with special fields for that line item’s price, quantity, and description. If the contact assigned to that project is also a contact in Less Accounting, their information will automatically get added to the invoice.

The Invoicing extension for the system allows you to consolidate all of your billing activities into one streamlined application. Here’s what you get.

  • Send invoices to your contact’s email address when you are ready to send them the bill.
  • Email multiple contacts so your client and their accounting/billing department can get notification of your invoice when it becomes available.
  • Accept payments in almost every currency in the world by credit card through Stripe.
  • Include alternate payment instructions for customers to pay by check or wire.
  • Completely customize the look of your invoices through a customizable invoicing template.
  • No additional fees to send invoices or accept payments.
  • Quickly create invoices from your Projects and Tasks.

With the WooCommerce Connect extension for Your system, you will have all your customer’s order information at your fingertips! Here’s what you get.

  • Easily view order history for each contact from within the contact’s record.
  • The plugin will automatically create a new contact in your system when customers make a purchase if a customer by that name doesn’t already exist.
  • New organizations will also be created automatically if the customer enters a company name at checkout. If the company already exists in your system, the contact will automatically be listed under that organization.
  • Quickly create a new order from the contact’s record.

The Client Area extension allows you to create a portal on your site where your clients can log in and view the status of the projects, tasks, campaigns, and invoices* you are working on for them.

Client Area works by providing you with several shortcodes that can be added to a page anywhere on your site. When a user is logged in it will show them all of the records they are assigned to that you choose to show.

We have added a new text area to your projects, tasks, and campaigns that will allow you to add client-specific notes, files, images, or whatever you can dream up. This allows you to get faster feedback from clients and close projects sooner.

If you take payments from clients but don’t want to create an invoice for every payment, the client area also has a new payment feature that allows you to collect payments by credit card (via Stripe). Payments can be a recurring subscription (great for monthly maintenance or retainer services), or one-off payments.

Questions you should Ask yourself Before You get a CRM

Assess how a practice will be regarded by your business/Organization. Company culture and technological skill levels should definitely be discussed.

An online exploration will generate innumerable CRM resolutions, each one declaring more superior innovations than the next. Although a feature-rich application can deliver staggering value, avoid disregarding the basics.

My experience has shown, most organizations need to at least have the following specialties:

  • Contact, opportunity, and account management
  • Record linking
  • Tasks and reminders
  • Multi-user log in
  • Sales team management
  • Pipeline customization and reporting

Start by comparing vendors that offer these features at all plan levels. Vendors that restrict access to such features (or fail to offer them) may not be worthy of your shortlist.

If you’re not a technology company, you probably have not heard the term “data structure.” In today’s tech-savvy environment, however, it is important to be very familiar with this concept.

Your data structure is really how your organization’s relationships translate into digital data.

Let’s take this case study, let’s presume you own a small organization or agency. Organizations or agencies typically have tens of thousands of interwoven relationships to keep organized. Financial reports, individual clients or consumers, underwriters, word-of-mouth referrals. The list never seems to end. It’s therefore daunting to configure a CRM from scratch.

Before getting too confounded, decrease the means and try to see the more significant design. Look for commonalities that can help you classify your data in a CRM. In our Organization or agency model, I most likely will recommend the following structure.

  • Set up a communications report for each person or entity.
  • Section connections to the correct organization or agency.
  • label organizations and agencies as relevant (client, vendor, etc.).
  • When it comes to personnel, execute a communication structure (home, auto, life, etc.).
  • Configure funnel systems and begin tracking opportunities.

When you have your framework in place, the implementation of a CRM shifts to a more manageable one.

A benefit to having web-based CRM software is the availability of third-party integrations. Your CRM will serve as the “hub” of all customer, sales, and (in some cases) project management information. and much much more. Notable performances can be accomplished by automatically inputting reports to and from your center. Common examples include:

  • Synchronizing email conversations into contact record histories.
  • Importing quotes and proposals onto opportunity records.
  • Integrating external document management repositories.
  • Sending new leads to your bulk email marketing systems.
  • Mirroring tasks and events to smartphone calendars.

The possibilities seem to be endless. When choosing your CRM, it’s important to first explore what is possible and then prioritize.

Migrating your information to the cloud is advantageous for a number of reasons. One apparent advantage includes approachability. Unlike inboxes or spreadsheets, users can simultaneously access important information from any web-enabled device, and collaborate in real-time.

Increased accessibility brings new decisions for you. Who at your organization needs to access the CRM? Which users should hold administrative privileges? Who will be responsible for assigning new leads?

These are important questions to consider for a number of reasons. From a budgeting standpoint, many CRM plans allot a fixed number of user licenses. As new employees come on board, your per-user cost can significantly increase.

You should also view these questions from a data security standpoint. Certainly, not all of your sales reps need administrative privileges. Some companies even restrict access to only those records needed per user. This approach requires more administrative oversight, but it can reduce the risk of unwanted security issues (or turf wars).

Once you’ve decided on user access, you’ll also need to clarify who will “administrate” your CRM account. With untold numbers of users accessing your system 24/7, the opportunity for chaos exists. You need one person who is responsible for the success (or failure) of your investment. Select someone you trust who has a basic understanding of technology. Ideally, the candidate would also be capable to lead in these areas:

  1. Implementation Depending on which CRM you select, implementation can vary greatly. Some vendors require you to work with an “approved” Others take a DIY model, offering step-by-step instructions for success. Either way, you need someone internally who can manage projects and connect the dots.
  1. Policies & Procedures Employees come and go. Once implemented, however, your CRM will serve your organization indefinitely. Smart companies invest in ongoing employee education and training materials. Your CRM administrator will need to define workflows, guidelines, and expectations. This information should then be disseminated to users and routinely updated as processes change.
  1. System Policing What should happen when a sales rep inexplicitly deletes several customer records? Will you have a way to monitor this type of undesirable activity? Your administrator should have a routine of checking (and enforcing) policy violations. It’s your company, and it’s your data. Protect it.
  1. Security How often should your users update their passwords? Are users permitted to export customer data into a CSV format? What other CRM-related risks will you need to address? Your CRM administrator should always be thinking about these types of questions. If he/she doesn’t know the answers, it’s his job to request the proper resources.

Your business is not a latent entity. In fact, you probably have big plans for the future.

With this in mind, it’s important to consider if a CRM will accommodate your future needs. Does the software offer enterprise-level plans? If you doubled or tripled the number of users and records, could the system handle such growth? Does the vendor seem aggressive in its development roadmap, or does the company rarely announce new features?

Certainly with DMA CRM workflow services we cover all this,

Don’t be satisfied with a CRM that only meets your needs today. CRM migration can be a messy process. While it can be done, transition costs down the road can dramatically outweigh the present cost of picking a better system from the start. Spend time reviewing your long-term goals in the context of each CRM you’re considering.

We will offer you the opportunity to review all our CRM resources for you to make an informed decision.
