A single-pipeline CRM is not going to work for a manufacturing operation, simply due to the sheer volume of processes utilized. There is the manufacturing operation which has its own set of processes, then the marketing and sales aspect of the company.
If a CRM application only allows a single pipeline for sales, then all of these other processes for a manufacturing concern will have to be addressed elsewhere, with other applications. It is far more efficient for all of these processes to be collectively addressed within the CRM solution.
Pipeliner CRM allows as many processes as needed for a company, all connected to a single database. That means opportunities, customers, accounts or other data can be moved from one process to another, whole and intact. All of these can also be related to each other or interconnected as needed, regardless of what process they are part of.
