Tasks and Activities

Within each stage or step of a company’s sales process are various tasks and activities which a sales rep uses to bring an opportunity through that stage. These tasks and activities are usually based on the best practices of the most experienced and proven sales reps.

Today a leading-­edge CRM solution allows tasks and activities to be made an operating part of each stage. They can be made into a series of checkboxes that a rep must check off as the sale progresses, or they can even be optionally made into a series of mandatory steps a rep must take before an opportunity can be moved to the next stage.

As with the sales process, these tasks and activities are completely different, company to company. Therefore a CRM solution should allow total and rapid customization of tasks and activities as well.

Templates and Fields
