About the Company:
At 5Degrees, we’re passionate about making business life simpler. We think the Contact Management tools that people currently use to manage sales leads is bulky, cumbersome, and not at all engaging. Until now.
5Degrees makes tools that salespeople and networkers can use to nurture and grow new and existing relationships.
We’ve designed 5Degrees for the mobile salesperson.
About the Product:
5Degrees CRM is a simple Contact Management Software. Designed for Sales Lead Management from the mobile side first for iPhone. Get things done out of the office with a Mobile Contact Manager and use our web based Customer Relationship Management system to make things easier when you get back in the office.
With 5Degrees Mobile Relationship Manager
you get a Mobile CRM that lets you:
- Categorize people with circles and hash-tags
- Take notes with customizable hot-keys
- Send templated emails
- Schedule send emails
- Set task reminders for follow-up
- See a list of daily activities
- Track your progress on the home page
All in the palm of your hand!
5Degrees takes a different approach. The idea of Mobile CRM has been around for years. Most of the focus has been on having read-only access to data that is stored on office-bound servers or in the cloud. While this is certainly useful, the explosion of smartphones has made the mobile device the center of content creation.
Many salespeople, for instance, try to update their system when they get back in the office. Studies routinely show that critical details are lost from short-term memory–and not stored in our long-term memory. And if we wait a week, more than 90% of information from a single conversation is lost. Most critically, all of the important details that demonstrate attention. Try remembering back to the last conference you went to. You might remember the speaker’s name. But what are the three main points you thought were most valuable? If you are like most people this is a really difficult task without looking back at your notes.
We are aware of these challenges at 5Degrees, and have designed a relationship management solution that makes it easier to keep on-top of your game. We help you get searchable notes in place with simple tools like customizable hot-keys and hash-tags. Or get an email together using a pre-made template, where you only need to add a few words or phrases to convey key take-away from a meeting. Then, we let you schedule it to go out in the future when it is more appropriate. Which is why we say that with 5Degrees, we help you turn a Mobile CRM into a Mobile Relationship Manager.
