A CRM is not only to collect leads and send emails but also for billing activities like creating project-winning proposals, explicit estimation, proper invoicing, etc. When a lead is qualified and converted to a sales opportunity, the first task you need to do is to send a proposal.
To create a professional proposal that wins the project or the deal you may have to meet some requirements and create a super impressive proposal.
In this case, a CRM with billing and invoicing facilities can help you effectively by providing some aesthetic templates that demonstrate what content you have to put and where.
The billing facilities of a CRM help you get paid faster. Moreover, it shows your professionalism and builds a stronger relationship with your client. In this article, I described my experience with Propovoice for billing and invoicing. It’s really outstanding.
Importance of a CRM with Billing Facilities
Before starting using CRM we created billing documents with Google Docs. One day one of my team members was confused and he couldn’t recall whether a bill was paid or not. By any chance, we lost the previous emails.
He guessed it was not paid and sent an email to my client asking him to pay the bill. My client was bitterly shocked and let me know that it had been paid before. That was a great embarrassing situation for me. I apologized but it surely created a bad impression.
Now I use Propovoice and It’s needless to mention that we don’t make such a silly mistake anymore. Everything is well organized in Propovoice. It helps you perform billing activities in an easier and a professional way that not only lets you get paid faster but build your agency’s loyalty.
