CRMs for Consultants
Why should a Consultant use a CRM? Regardless of whether a consultant is a one-man show with a handful of clients, or perhaps a multi-person trust advising prestigious fortune 500 companies, they probably already know that using a system to keep track of client communication is a must. Consultants need a software solution that can pick up the slack and keep all mission-critical client details in one easy-to-use app. This then leaves them free to focus on clients and projects without letting any detail, no matter how small, fall through the cracks.
