In coordination with commodity and other industry related organizations, AITC-M’s programming, events and services will further develop future decision-makers and entrepreneurs.

Business executives in North America and worldwide are looking for software solutions to improve the operational efficiency and productivity of their employees. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software improves productivity of employees across the organization by reducing the time spent on unproductive administrative tasks. Your employees will be empowered with a customizable and integrated CRM system.
CRM software empowers your employees by providing the ability and flexibility of defining their best practices. Each member of the team has a flexible user interface screen when dealing with internal and external customers. Most executives already know the benefits of stand-alone CRM software in organizations, but they are yet to discover the benefits of fully integrated CRM and ERP.
How could your organization most benefit from using integrated CRM and ERP software? What are the benefits of CRM and ERP integration? Integrated CRM and ERP system is virtually always the right thing to do.
ERP software is used for your finance, accounting, shipping, invoicing, inventory controls, billing, financial reporting, and auditing. Enterprise Resource Planning software controls your cash, budget, cash flows, expenses, and revenue. CRM controls your customer information, employee communications, sales operations, marketing, marketing campaigns and much more. CRM and ERP systems exist to serve your customers in the most efficient way by giving the ability to your employees to store consistent, relevant, correct, up to date, real time data across your entire organization. Imagine when you integrate these two systems the power your employees and management team will have.
One centralized database that is available to all of your employees is the key to organizational productivity. For example; a customer may phone and ask about the estimated delivery time of a specific product. With an integrated ERP and CRM, this information will be available to your customer service representatives in real-time. Your customer service representatives can record a purchase request as they are talking to customers and that information will be never be re-entered by another person, eliminating all chance for data-entry errors. Having one integrated system will reduce the time spent on entering information more than once.
Successes of sales departments are vital to your business. Sales departments benefit from ERP and CRM systems integration. Sales representatives will have access to as much financial information as they need to maximize the sales revenues. For example, your sales team will have access to inventory control information. This way your sales and marketing team can focus on selling the over stocked items versus a product is just being shipped to your warehouse.
Marketing departments are there to produce qualified leads, gain new customers, and keep existing customers with product promotions and advertising. With an integrated CRM and ERP system, your marketing team can execute more focused campaigns with the information provided by ERP and CRM system. They can quickly create reports on the previous purchase history, or up sale and cross sale.
Your organization will benefit most when you purchase ERP and CRM together and integrate these two systems in your entire organization. You should be talking to an experienced dealer to help you make the right software purchase. Please contact us to benefit from our free consultation if the ERP and CRM right for you.
