Pipeliner CRM 13: Universals
As with our earlier versions, we have named our latest version after an ancient powerful work. In this case we have taken from probably the most famous Greek philosopher, Aristotle, and a theory he evolved called the Theory of Universals.
Universals are types, properties or relations that are common to all of existence. In Aristotle's view, universals only exist where they can be seen and experienced, never in theory only. In addition, a universal is identical in each of its instances.
As an example, a universal property could be the color red. All red things are similar in that there is the same universal, redness, in each of its occurrences. In another example, the universal property of being an apple appears in every instance of apples.
So how have we applied Aristotle's Theory of Universals to Pipeliner? Each of the features we have instituted in this version deal only with factors, events and issues that exist in the real world.
With Universals, we have greatly enhanced our Performance Insights functionality which empowers sales managers with real sales performance management. New features include:
Through the Performance Insights Power Panel, Pipeliner CRM's powerful filter functionality can be applied to Insights. You can filter out or in your own statistics, or (if allowed) those of your team.
Collaborative Conversions maps all the data for all the users involved within the sales process including BDRs, SDRs and Salespeople. Within a collaborative environment, in which more people are involved in a single opportunity, you will get a visual overview of success rates.
The Life Cycle feature allows you to gain an insight on the time (days) your team members require to close an opportunity. It tracks the time leads and opportunities remained in the system, by user or unit.
The Performance Insights Comparison Chart compares open, won and lost opportunities, all within the same graphic.
Enhanced Performance insights will offer even better way of reviewing your business intelligence.
Life Cycles present you with important information about life cycles of your Opportunities.
With enhanced dynamic activites you can set up and customize activities in your Sales Process.
Through the Notification Center, you receive notifications about new data added to leads, opportunities, contacts, accounts or activities with which you are associated. You are notified when existing data is updated, when emails are received, when documents are uploaded, or when another user sends you a message.
Simply click on any lead, opportunity, contact, account, activity within a notification to dive in and obtain more information.
You can also send messages to other users within the Notification Center.
You are informed of new notifications through the bell icon at the top right of Pipeliner. Click on the bell to go right to the Notification Center.
As with many other Pipeliner CRM features, all types of sales activities—including tasks and events—are now fully customizable with a broad variety of custom fields and forms.
You can also create unassigned activities—tasks waiting to be done. This functionality is especially useful when connecting activities with third party tools. For example, you can connect a zendesk support ticket to a task in Pipeliner CRM, and inform your customer success manager about the issue or issues your customer is faced with. Any update of the zendesk ticket is reflected immediately in the Pipeliner CRM task status.
We have also made several enhancements to Pipeliner Mobile CRM—Pipeliner on the go!
Notification Center: The same Notification functionality that is available through the Pipeliner desktop version is available on Pipeliner Mobile CRM.
Products and Services: Pipeliner's powerful product catalogue functionality, which allows you to place your catalog right within Pipeliner CRM, is now fully available on Pipeliner Mobile CRM.
