Saving Time with QuoteWerks and ConnectWise Manage
Businesses start with the best of intentions when it comes to software selection. They might begin with an accounting system. Later, they realize they need a CRM, sales proposal software, and a few other systems. Before long, they end up with a variety of software solutions. The problem is, these different pieces of software were not designed to work together. They're disparate applications that don't share data.
In order for sales reps to find the data they need in a timely manner (i.e. “Where’s that contact I entered in the other system?”), they will likely have to do dual or triple entry into multiple systems. In one example, if an order gets canceled, it will likely need to be reconciled using manual processes across multiple systems.
If they don't have integrated systems, businesses are likely to just give up on the process of using real-time data because it's too difficult to accomplish. Employees can spend countless hours trying to tie data together.
In the end, data sits in silos. These silos waste incredible amounts of time and can cripple a company's growth.
Integrated Systems Eliminate Data Silos
With integrated systems, you don’t have these problems. There are a variety of clear benefits:
All of your data in one place: Rather than having to extract data from multiple systems for use in other systems, this process is automated, making it easier for managers to stay informed and to make better decisions faster.
Real-time visibility: Systems that are integrated easily give a company real-time visibility into how the business is performing.
Process efficiency is enhanced: Integrating your software can help you avoid adding new hires to manage processes. With the improved process efficiency, you can instead redeploy existing employees to activities that provide a higher ROI. This allows you to speed up financial closings, improve sales productivity, and decrease order processing time.
Huge time savings: Integrated systems offer companies the ability to boost productivity and save time. Employees free up time by not having to manually sync data.
QuoteWerks and ConnectWise Manage Integration
QuoteWerks comes with the ConnectWise integration out-of-the-box. (ConnectWise Manage is a Professional Services Automation (PSA) tool that helps automate processes within your business.) This integration allows you to accelerate the growth of your organization, enabling you to quickly accomplish more with a sales proposal software that can integrate with ConnectWise Manage.
Having integrated systems can lead to more cross-sell and upsell opportunities because an entire customer base exists between both systems, offering improved visibility.
