The holidays have arrived! As you enjoy time with your family, don’t forget to plan for 2016. As our gift to you, we wanted to share a few software tools that you can use to build or enhance your sales stack next year. Today’s focus: dialer automation.
Anyone who thinks email is the most powerful and efficient sales communication channel—think again. The phone hasn’t received much love the past few years; most innovation has been within the email and social media categories. Luckily, that has started to change recently as VoIP and phone activities can now be automatically logged into the CRM, making them ripe for analysis.
Some systems will also automate phone calls and help you connect with prospects. A few of these systems even allow display local area codes in the caller display, which can increase the rate of pick-ups.
