If you are starting a small company (perhaps just yourself and 3-4 sales people) and decide you want one system to organize your day and your client listing for you, then Etelos CRM For Google would do the job pretty well. I think a bigger staff may require the EtelosCRM Professional version but one would have to evaluate that one as well and this was more than enough for me! I’m not 100% sure why I say this, but my gut feel on seeing the graphics seems to suggest this. There is the ability to share everything so perhaps I’m wrong.

I have an account now with Google mail, Google calendar and can use Google talk which is similar I presume to Skype, so interaction with co-workers is immediate.

The features of Etelos CRM For Google are really comprehensive: notes, contact listing, appointment book, tasks, a calling list scheduling feature, list sale prospects, a marketing toolkit which allows you to design a sales letter campaign, CNN daily news, even an Einstein quote of the day.

A large part of successful selling is regular, efficient customer contact and keeping them up to date with new products; the tools provided here are comprehensive – as long as you set aside half an hour a day to use the planning features, you should be on top of customer management. What do you need for client records? Who, when, what, where, why, how much … Etelos CRM puts it all in nice little interactive boxes on your screen.

The Etelos calendar is very comprehensive and the site as a whole covers almost any eventuality you may come across in a product launch and follow-up campaign.

Etelos CRM practices what they preach by sending an e-mail every few days offering another application which you may have missed the first time round and also offering application demos.

Drawbacks? Some features require loading a new page from the net, the application windows may be a bit small if you have the whole lot, some of the icons don’t open a little definition window and you may have to guess and then go back again…..

My business life usually involved: an A4 diary and lots of scrawling and an index card system which I could flick through when necessary and much time on the phone. I thought it was good enough but for a busy sales person with a specific range of products, Etelos CRM For Google is excellent. I always wonder though how regularly sales people do their paper, now laptop, work.
