Now that 92% of businesses say that customer relationship management (CRM) platforms are critical tools in meeting sales targets, it’s time to make sure your organization is maximizing your CRM’s capabilities. From enabling your sales team and sales processes to streamlining your business processes, CRM workflow automation can maximize organizational efficiency and elevate your business.

What Is CRM Workflow Automation?

CRM workflows automate routine manual tasks within the CRM system. This includes anything from sending follow-up emails after a sales meeting to routing customer complaints to the right contact. Because the manual work of these repetitive tasks is erased, teams can complete time-consuming tasks faster and more accurately than before.

Why is CRM Automation Important?

CRM workflow automation has many benefits beyond task and process automation. ActiveBatch’s extensive functionality means automating workflows in CRM systems can:

  • Improve customer experience and interactions by handling issues more efficiently and effectively. Automated workflows can instantly respond to customer queries or complaints, provide quick solutions to issues, or escalate said issues as needed.
  • Handle data more effectively by automatically categorizing and analyzing data. This also yields valuable insights into customer behaviors and preferences. These insights can provide sales management and business leaders with information for more strategic decisions.
  • Support organizational scalability as CRM-related tasks increase. Automation enables better task and project management without the need for additional resources.
  • Ensures consistency in how tasks are performed across the sales funnel, marketing, account management, and customer support.

CRM System Automation with ActiveBatch

ActiveBatch is a powerful and flexible IT workflow automation tool that streamlines complex workflows across multiple systems, applications, and IT environments. ActiveBatch enables businesses to create, manage, and monitor automated workflows, effectively reducing errors and improving operational efficiency. Here are some use cases for how ActiveBatch can enhance CRM workflow automation:

1. Drive Efficiency

A business may have the sales staff doing manual data entry by updating CRM records and sending follow-up emails after each meeting. This distracts salespeople from their core selling activities and depletes their productivity. With ActiveBatch, the company can set up an automated workflow that updates CRM records and sends customized emails as soon as meeting data is entered into the system. That no one has to manually set up drip campaigns or other email marketing; it just happens once the workflow updates the CRM.

2. Improve Customer Experience

With ActiveBatch, businesses can set up workflows that send instant acknowledgment to customer queries, create support tickets, and assign those queries to the right team members based on predefined rules. This ensures that customers not only receive timely responses, but know that their communications have been received and that any issues will be addressed. Such reassurance enhances the overall customer experience.

3. Scale Better

As a small business or startup gets bigger, it might find that its manual CRM processes aren’t scaling effectively. ActiveBatch’s functionality allows them to create workflows that can handle increased volume without requiring additional people, resources, or tools. For instance, a workflow can automatically manage customer onboarding, even if there’s an anomaly, without straining resources.

4. Enhance Marketing Automation

ActiveBatch can help build and trigger email marketing campaigns and sequences across CRM software, tools like chatbots, and apps throughout your environment. When marketing teams can automate, say, lead generation follow-up with new leads, they can save hours every day and ensure that every lead is contacted. This also enables more accurate lead scoring so sales reps can accurately assess and route leads, processes ActiveBatch also automates.

Further CRM Platform Automation Enhancements

ActiveBatch helps automate business processes across your enterprise, and that starts with your CRM. ActiveBatch can help your teams:

  • Build workflow templates that outline the steps of your automated marketing or sales workflow
  • Trigger ecommerce-specific actions like abandoned cart emails
