It’s been four years since we started offering Mail Merge plug-in for Zoho CRM. Thanks to this tool, printing mailing labels, sending personalized letters, contracts and other form letters to customers is as easy as sending emails.
Take the sales teams for instance. The ABC’s of sales, Always be Closing, is still as valid today as when Alec Baldwin brutally explained to us in the movie, Glengarry Glen Ross (warning: contains profanity). After you close the deal, you still have to personalize and share sales agreements and other forms. Thanks to mail merge, you can now create templates to automate this routine task. So the next time you need an agreement, apply mail merge and the customer details will collate from the CRM so you don’t have to worry about filling out fields manually.
“We had been through the ringer!”
Those were the words that Secita Solutions founder Mike Moore used when describing his search for an adequate CRM to use.
“I tried ACT, Sugar, Maximizer, and Vtiger and was tired of looking for CRMs…until I found Zoho. As soon as I did, I started planning big things down the road for Secita because I immediately knew Zoho was going to take us to the next level…and beyond!”
“It came down to Zoho or Salesforce, and ultimately I know I made the right decision”
Four years ago, John Hood’s company, The Farm, was looking into finding a permanent CRM solution because the internal database they were using was “simply not cutting it and was ultimately hampering some of our sales efforts.”
Hood explored a myriad of CRM solutions including Sugar, Goldmine, Salesforce, and Zoho.
After a thorough exploration into CRM solutions, Hood made a decision on a CRM to go with, and hasn’t looked back since… Read more
I revel in the days of old when baseball was truly, “America’s Pastime.”
It’s not anymore. Hasn’t been for years. That’s become exponentially evident thanks to a slew of problems ranging from a decrease in game attendance to the lack of national stars like there are in the NBA and NFL. People say the games are too slow, the season is too long and the games are, well…boring.
I’ve heard every complaint and statistic to no avail. It doesn’t matter to me. I anticipate Opening Day every spring the way a child anticipates summer vacation. Baseball season is my paradise.
So here we are once again. March 31, 2014. Opening day for the 2014 Major League Baseball season. My beloved Texas Rangers start their season at 1:05 CT against the Philadelphia Phillies, and soon, all will be right with the world.
So why am I talking about baseball here? I believe there are a number of lessons sales teams can learn from the game of baseball. So before I go on about the greatest sport around for too much longer, let’s look at some fundamental concepts sales teams, sales managers and even entrepreneurs can take from the baseball diamond.

“The cost is just too high.”
These were the words that echoed a year ago when EcoMark began growing and adding users to its CRM system. At the time, they were using Salesforce, but as is frequently the case, the return-on-cost of the system made Salesforce increasingly impractical as EcoMark began adding more users.
Having been in business for two years and now experiencing rapid growth, EcoMark was at a technology crossroads of sorts. It was time to determine which CRM to use for the foreseeable future – bite the cost bullet and hope Salesforce eventually pays off, or try another solution. Read more
