Web-Based Solar CRM- A Must Have Tool For Every Residential Solar Company.
Looking at the pace solar industry is growing it is quite evident that there is going to be a strong competition within the solar market. It is becoming essential for every residential solar company to keep themselves updated with latest trends and technologies. One of such technologies is CRM software which many solar companies are already using to improve their sales performance. However, the specifications of the CRM software determines the functionality, usability, and scalability of that system for your business. One of the most important specifications is the method of delivery of service, i.e. web-based vs. on-premises.
The Advantage of a web-based CRM is that it is delivered via the internet, unlike regular software applications, which are deployed on-premise. In a web-based solar sales software, users don’t need to install and run the software on their computers or on company’s local server. It will be delivered to their devices anywhere and anytime through a secured connection.
A Web Based CRM is beneficial for all size solar companies due to the scalability of the features.
Below is how it can fuel your growth and streamline your way to productivity:
