It has allowed companies to improve there customer relations to a new level and increase converting leads to sales. Although this is extremely important to a business, most CRM systems only offer these services in the office. The need to take this system with you, wherever you business goes gave rise to mobile CRM.

Just recently, Sage Software acquired Corum, a developer of mobile CRM technologies. “The Corum acquisition strengthens our CRM strategy because it allows Sage to broaden its CRM mobility solutions with a unified technology,” said Dave Batt, senior vice president and general manager of Global CRM for the Sage Group plc.

Is VoIP right for your business?

VoIP, standing for Voice over IP (Internet Protocol) is a method for making phone calls over the internet in contrast to the classical Public Switched Telephone Network. The original advantage of having VoIP for your business was the almost neglible long distance rates but now the market has develop and competitors are arising many new features are available that traditional phone lines can't offer. For example, VoIP uses digital conversations allowing you to integrate and make email your voicemail and voicemail your email. You can also have remote access to the office lines through PDAs, laptops or just a VoIP phone at home. Further, you can have almost unlimited extensions and route extensions to your cell phone so that it you can transfer calls coming to the office to a cell. THe big benefit for your clients if you are multi-site business having an offices in, for example, Seattle and SSan Diego you can have local lines numbers route to both offices, this means a client can call your office San Diego as if it were in Seattle aand vice-versa. The one downside to VoIP is the bandwidth issue, you hhave to pay for the bandwidth used if exceed the amount given with your ISP contract. With this in mind it almost always reduces your phone costs and you get all the extra benefits of integration.

"Currently, about 1.5 million U.S. businesses use VoIP, and Forrester Research recently estimated that about 5 million will use such systems within the next year, with up to 40 percent adoption by 2008."

Unispace - Managed Services

Unispace Solutions is a new and interesting business. They are offering managed services, that means that you let them handle all your server needs, if you have accpac you can have it hosted with them and access it through a web browser. The same goes for Sage CRM. I like the model as many business spend many dollars every year maintaining there servers and only use the servers for small business applications. It is a good way to start with Accpac or any accounting system but te unfortunate part is a your businesss grows you will need to handle your servers in house. With this in mind Unispace does offer an upgrade plan to move your hosted and manage servers to on site. They provide a number of other services including Accpac support, online backup and e-commerce solutions.
