CRM usage should be second nature and you should use it for your own benefit as well as managementโ€™s.ย 

salespeople complain about it but itโ€™s actually really important for LOTS of reasons.ย 

The information in the CRM should enhance your business, from understanding what has happened, help make future decision and where/what to invest in for the sales dept.ย 

from a management POV, we need this information for forecasting and for understanding where they will finish as a dept etc.ย 

I have seen people being passed over for promotion for not using the CRM properly and rightly so, IMO.ย 

I believe everyone should make it a priority to make sure they log everything in the correct way and make it normal to so. It will help you, your boss and your dept, and that can only put you in a stronger position.ย

crm is what i recently was told as considered your salary, it can help if the tools are set up to do so otherwise it is def busywork if there are no metrics tied to it

You are given an account list with over 250 accounts (no salesforce, you have to work off an excel sheet), what steps/processes do you implement to ensure all accounts are being touched? How many do you target a week? Month? Etc.
