There was a time when gathering data was a hard task. A few years later, it was a challenge to integrate data, and afterward, it seemed almost impossible to keep it clean. Nowadays, all these things are not only possible, but necessary.

That leaves just one-third of their time for the actual process of building relationships and winning business.

To ensure that your sales team can spend more time closing deals, it’s important to leverage your CRM. Not only is the software used for tracking and managing relationships, it’s like an extra set of hands in the office for doing all those things (besides selling) that your sales team needs to, but shouldn’t have to do.
