Hello there! This week was a big week for CRM, including an overhaul of the contacts, leads, and customers applications. Along with this, we included various small improvements for the Invoices App, and we released the 2.0 version of our Orders App.
For CRM, there are several notable improvements that have been included. The best of which is the inclusion of advanced search capabilities, built-in Apptivo reports, and the ability to create your own custom reports and share them with colleagues.
In addition to the new reporting, each app received a cosmetic overhaul, and the addition of some other key features, such as social media integration, as well as email notifications when CRM objects are updated. Lastly, the lead conversion process has been greatly simplified. It is now simple to take a cold sales lead, and convert it into the next step of the sales process in our CRM apps.
Beyond CRM, we have released a greatly improved 2.0 version of our sales orders application. Every corner of the app has been tweaked and improved to offer a much better experience. We’ve also fixed many issues which existed in the old application, and included brand new features like reporting and advanced search capabilities. If you we’re using the existing app, do not worry, all of your data is seamlessly transferred into the new app. You don’t need to take any steps to use the new app, it has automatically replaced the old 1.0 app.
Next release you can look forward to a complete overhaul of our marketing suite, which will make Apptivo’s CRM suite even more comprehensive, allowing built-in tools to help manage your email marketing activities. We’ll also be included a new personalized dashboard with a profile picture for each employee, and you can expect many enhancements to our Invoices & CRM applications as well. Finally, we’ll be releasing a brand new upload tool to make importing your data into Apptivo much easier. Stay Tuned!
