We have added functionality that speeds standard sales processes, making more time for selling efforts and simultaneously reducing costs. Generating more sales and eliminating overhead are both increasingly important to publishers in today's market.
Leesburg, VA (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
Alauras Software today announced the release of version 2.0 of its YP CRM+. Version 2.0 of Alauras CRM+ offers the ability for a sales rep to submit Daily Sales Reports, submit a Customer Service Request and execute Contracts from select laptops or mobile devices. The new features place many of the standard Yellow Page processes on the web and can eliminate the use of paper. Yellow Page publishers can now gain new efficiencies and cost savings while being more environmentally sensitive.
"We have added functionality that speeds standard sales processes, making more time for selling efforts and simultaneously reducing costs. Generating more sales and eliminating overhead are both increasingly important to publishers in today's market." stated Richard Sloop, President. "While similar sales automation tools have been available, they have required significant investment and most publishers have not been able to justify the expense. Now through advances in our web based software, all publishers can gain this efficiency to better leverage sales efforts."
"It is our intent to provide a solution that creates an immediate and discernible ROI for our publishers. One of our customer's analysis showed that their use of the CRM+ solution provided a performance enhancement equivalent to adding two sales reps. This is exactly what we are striving for", Sloop continued.
Alauras eContracts feature allows the sales rep the ability to build a contract directly on a laptop or mobile device and then permit the customer to sign directly on the screen. A secure PDF version is immediately sent to the customer via email and to the sales office for processing. Based on customers' requests, the publisher can have a printed paper version in the mail to the customer within minutes of execution. Alauras eDSR and eCSR, allow the rep to complete daily sales reports and customer service requests on their laptop or mobile device via the web. This gives the publisher and sales management up-to-the-minute sales tracking information without reliance on the publishing system. Additional advanced features including user location mapping will be rolled out in June.
The Alauras CRM+ is a highly customizable internet based solution requiring no software installation and is accessible from internet enabled pc's or handheld devices. CRM+ 2.0 offers full reporting of sales and canvass progress and provides a single reference point for customer service activity. Enabling enhanced communication, CRM+ provides immediate access to all employees through email or instant messaging. Full custom reporting, sales proposals generation, location mapping and activity tracking can all be customized by the publisher.
