How to get sales teams to use CRM software: make it work like they do

Sales reps will quickly adopt a CRM system that helps them track design wins and quotes, helps them increase commissions, and makes their job easier. Look for these features:A focus on representative sales. Don’t pay thousands and wait months to get your system customized. Instead, look for a CRM system that’s already focused on what you do—and a company that updates it regularly based on feedback from customers like you.

  • The data they need—and nothing they don’t. Look for a system that puts crucial data in your team’s hands—so they can walk into every sales meeting ready to maximize their opportunities.
  • Easy segmentation. Your CRM system should let your salespeople assess their strongest markets and products at a glance, so they can develop targeted messaging strategies that pay off.
  • Quick and easy updates. A feature that lets your team update outside manufacturer CRMs quickly and easily will save them a lot of time.
  • Mobile functionality. Busy field sales reps will love a CRM system that lets them update quickly on the road—without having to go back to the office.
