Dashboard: The window to your company’s data

It has been said, "Your eyes are the window to your soul.” And in my opinion, the ability to look someone in their eyes and see the stark truth, what’s inside and makes up another person, can be a powerful ability that once mastered (pardon my geek factor coming out) grants the person the equivalent ability of the Jedi Mind Trick. Only in this case, you don’t have to have an increased midichlorian count.Now stepping...

To import or not to import

In today’s society, they say gold is the most valuable commodity, but I have to disagree. The most valuable commodity undoubtedly is “DATA.” It’s treated like the proverbial “Dragon Horde,” ever increasing, while not truly ever knowing what exactly is possessed.

OmnipriseCRM Ensuring Customer Relationships in 2011

The holidays are over: Everyone has gained about 10 pounds, gotten that new I-gadget, driven 1000 miles and oh yeah, it’s time to go back to work. So what’s next? Start off the New Year with a New Year’s resolution? Most people resolve to lose the 10 pounds gained over the holiday, not spend so much time on the I-gadget or to spend more time at home. While these are all great resolutions, what about making a reso...

The ABC's of CRM

There comes a time when you, as a business owner/manager, have an epiphany; the realization of the symbiotic relationship between customer and vendor. Whether it happens during a clap of thunder or the whisper of a summer’s breeze, you realize that without the customer, there is no business. It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest product in the world, without a customer to buy the product; the company is destine...
