Welcome Cillian, a recent OnePageCRM recruit! And without stealing his thunder (sorry, Cillian), we’d also like to introduce our latest mobile app, the OnePageCRM Speed Dialer. The brainchild of newbie Cillian, the Speed Dialer is built to save time and maximize impact. It is built specifically for salespeople on the go.
Which came first the chicken or the egg?
Well, that we may never know. What we do know is Cillian arrived at our office late last June with a proposal we simply couldn’t refuse. Having always been fascinated by technology, software development was a very logical progression for Cillian, who has a degree in Electronic & Computer Engineering from NUI Galway. He had heard of the wonders of OnePageCRM through his university network and set about impressing us with his knowledge of mobile applications.
“I asked someone what could I do to impress this company, they said make them an app. Then I researched sales/GTD methodologies to find an idea and eventually came up with the Dialer.”
And impress us he did, so rather than let him get away, we gave him a desk here at HQ. Cillian has been our go-to mobile guy since. If there’s something he doesn’t know about Android, then quite frankly, it’s not worth knowing.
The Speed Dialer app
Cillian’s pet project quickly became part of the OnePageCRM 2015 Roadmap. We’re always on the lookout for any ideas that will make the sales process easier, and this idea was genius.
Designed as a standalone Android application, the Speed Dialer allows you to make calls to a list of contacts. Any starred contact with a Next Action and a phone number in the CRM, will appear in the app. The Speed Dialer ensures you have all your prospects in a predefined call list before you hit the road.
The streamlined, user-friendly interface allows you to rapidly dial the next contact on the list. You can also quickly log the result for convenience. It will even give you a notification if someone on your list rings you, prompting you to log the call result right from the Dialer app – nifty, eh?
One of the greatest benefits of using a CRM is that it allows sales teams to get organized and that means more time selling. However, as salespeople spend more time out of the office, it’s a well-known secret that CRM records often get left behind.
The Speed Dialer app cuts out the data entry. We look after the admin, allowing you to get on with the more important things, like getting in your next sales call.
In keeping with the ethos of OnePageCRM, we’re launching our MVP, so we can get your feedback on all aspects of the product, what features you like, and what you think needs improving. We’ll be forwarding all criticisms and compliments to Cillian, so play nice.
