About the Product:
Mothernode®, a leading provider of cloud-based ERP solutions for small and medium-size businesses, has announced its newest product offering: Mothernode CRM. The software was created especially for sales managers looking for a cost-effective, powerful and highly accessible CRM solution that will streamline the sales process and improve their sales team’s productivity and close rates. Mothernode CRM is positioned as a feature-rich, cost-effective alternative to Salesforce.com and Sugar CRM.
“As anyone who has been looking for a sales-oriented CRM knows, there are several cloud-based solutions,” said Ken Pearson, president of Mothernode. “But with very few exceptions, most of them are really no more than a glorified electronic Rolodex® that lack true sales management capabilities. Mothernode CRM is for small and mid-sized businesses that depend on sales management functionality to help drive the success of their business, and who need a full-featured, robust software that can organize and guide the entire sales process.”
Mothernode CRM offers the traditional components you would expect from a quality CRM, including a real-time visibility of your activity with customers and contacts, leads and opportunity management, reporting and KPIs (key performance indicators), and features that improve overall collaboration between users. However, unlike other popular CRMs, Mothernode CRM only has one plan available to all subscribers. The application delivers its enterprise class architecture and all of its world-class features to every Mothernode customer, regardless of their business size or immediate needs. “The only way to truly help businesses grow is to deliver a solution that can grow with them,” Pearson says. “That’s why we’re giving our customers the tools they need today, and let them grow into what they may need tomorrow.” Mothernode CRM is designed for a single user or small sales force, and can be an equally ideal fit for larger enterprise sales teams with more complex needs.
Customers are sure to be pleased with the attention Mothernode gives to the quoting process. The CRM version of the software includes practically all the features available in Mothernode ERP. A feature favorite are quotes that can be created within a lead, opportunity or customer profile, but are also accessible from their own independent quoting module. This let’s sales managers (and reps) have access to real-time open quote activity from within whatever module they are working. “Quoting activity is critical to effective sales management,” Pearson explains. “You cannot properly manage a sales team by measuring prospects alone. That’s why we’ve given special attention to providing one of the most powerful quoting and reporting systems available in any cloud-based CRM on the market today.
“Because Mothernode CRM is a spinoff of Mothernode ERP, the application inherits many of the bonus features you typically wouldn’t expect from a CRM, like its built-in message center, record recovery system (for deleted records), quote module and powerful configuration options. “We’ve been waiting for this day for a long time,” Pearson says. “We’ve had dozens of demonstrations with users who are already using CRMs like Salesforce, Sugar and Act. The responses have always been the same; demonstrations would conclude with enthusiasm and users asking ‘how soon can I get started?’” Mothernode CRM is now available for a 15-day free trial. Users can register for a subscription package at .
Mothernode delivers enterprise capabilities to the SMB market that will help companies better manage their customer relationships, improve customer service, create effective marketing campaigns and ultimately close more business. No other CRM in its class offers so much for so little.
