  • Contact management. You can create data cards for your customers, vendors or other individuals (that can later be associated with companies and organizations). You can import contacts from other existing PIM managers (like Outlook, Act!, Gold Mine, SalesForce.com, Siebel).
  • Deals management. Deals are opportunities (tasks) that you can define to do lead tracking and lead follow-up. You can set statuses for the deals so that you can track better if a possible customer received a quote for instance.
  • Task management. Tasks are not as complex as the deals (to which you can assign products, have documents attached and other linked items) and they should be used mainly to give an idea of the amount of time that you are spending trying to close deals for instance, or simply as an organizational item.
  • Case management. Used to solve support requests from customers, vendors or partners. Uses a virtual help desk system for handling the support tickets.
  • Call automation. You can create call scripts and assign them to team members, enable call logging, all part of a powerful call scripting and automation system
