Who Needs A CRM for their Door to Door or Direct Sales Business?
A Door to Door CRM software application can help your Door to Door or direct sales team be immensely more productive. Let’s take a deeper look.
So how do you know if you’re a good candidate for one?
How would you answer the following questions:
- Do you currently sell to door to door customers?
- Is your current record-keeping process time consuming?
- Do you want your existing salesforce to be more productive?
- Do you want to have the opportunity to sell to customers again and again?
If you answered yes to multiple (or any) of these questions, then you may be in a perfect spot to start using a door to door CRM!
First off, What is a CRM?
A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software is the foundation for managing all your company’s relationships. From existing customers, potential customer leads and future customers, a CRM has one goal in mind: improve business relationships from a technology standpoint. A great CRM will make interactions with customers streamlined and effortless. No more need for a rolodex, scratch pad, or spreadsheets! Using data analysis, a CRM can help a company to improve business relationships based on trends and past customers’ experiences.
Who needs a CRM?
Any company where the focus is on sales. Large companies will often spend the money to house their CRM offsite or hire a workforce to create their own inhouse system. Unfortunately, mid-sized to small companies who know they have a need for a CRM don’t have those options. If you are reading this, chances are, you may fit into that group. Unless you want to keep tracking customers within Excel or other spreadsheet program, or don’t mind losing customers to the next guy that can do it better, you will need a CRM.
Where do I find a CRM?
Just a few of the common CRM’s out there today are Zoho and SalesForce. Both of them offer endless customization possibilities. They both offer mobile apps. Both of them can allow your sales reps to access all of their customer data in the field. Basically between the two, the general assessment is that Zoho is the more budget friendly option. And Salesforce is the whiz-bang cool kid with all the bells and whistles (for a price that matches of course).
So why not use one of them for your door to door CRM needs?
Some companies do. In fact, we’ve heard of door to door companies spending millions of dollars in the last year to integrate their sales processes with SalesForce.
Why does it cost so much to integrate with these CRM’s?
Well, its because neither of them out of the box are designed specifically for door to door sales teams. That means each process has to be manually integrated or built out. This usually requires an outside integration team which in turn costs top figures. So what if you don’t have that kind of money to throw at your sales and customer process automation?
So what if you don’t have that kind of money to throw at your sales and customer process automation?
A better option for you if you don’t want to go for a full custom integration, is to use a CRM specifically designed for Door to Door sales teams. DSHero is the CRM built by Direct Sales Resources specifically for door to door sales teams.
Why it makes sense to use DSHero for your Sales Rep Management CRM
No other door to door CRM software application (that we currently know of) has been built specifically to manage sales, commissions, leads and sales rep data all on one platform. There are multiple applications that manage leads for sales reps, but none can also manage commissions, and sales reporting under the same umbrella.
Moreover, DSHero is secure. We’ve taken extreme measures to make sure our platform is PCI-compliant so you don’t have to worry about your customer information. In addition, 2-factor authentication and 256-bit encryption ensure your data will not be compromised by a rogue actor.
Direct Sales Resources has spent upwards of 4,000+ hours of development, testing and 2+ years of live sales rep testing. Yes, we drink our own Kool-Aid!
