Today we announced our new “Saleslogix Xbar for Outlook” functionality which brings CRM Inside your Outlook client. As a piece of standalone functionality it is compelling in its features:
Contextual CRM information automatically available in Outlook
Drag and drop capabilities to create contacts, leads and opportunities
Ability to update CRM data in real time directly within Outlook Client
Can be extended to include custom entities and fields
In the context of our overall strategy, this is a manifestation of our commitment to help our customers achieve 100% CRM adoption across their organizations. People live in their Outlook client, it is the go-to place for getting work done. By placing CRM inside Outlook we enable users to interact with CRM where they live.
Giving Saleslogix users contextual CRM data where they work will make CRM data more actionable and therefore more valuable to the business. This will also raise the visibility of CRM within a business, allowing occasional users such as executive management to now become regular CRM users, consuming data as part of their normal course of business. This increased visibility will create a virtuous circle driving further adoption.
We call this product strategy “Your CRM Inside”. Coupled with the Saleslogix web services integration platform and our award winning mobile solution, our aim is to deliver all customer data where and when users need that information. This will be key to successful CRM adoption.
