Let’s face it, terms like data unification, data quality, and data analysis cause most people to run in fear. Actually, putting “data” before any word can make the most innocent thing sound menacing.
Why is that?
It’s because the options we have for working with data consume a lot of time and focus and we are expected to be precise, timely, and accurate when updating records. It’s a tall order, and it requires organizations to implement tools that quicken data navigation and make data modifications happen as if they’re second nature.
GridBuddy Cloud can help. It’s our solution for unifying data by connecting records from separate data into one view, making analysis across systems possible. Why is that important? Here are the top four reasons you should be adding GridBuddy Cloud to your tech stack.
The most problematic part of using a CRM or any business system is jumping from record to record, screen to screen, or browser tab to browser tab to view all the data needed for customer engagements. Since it’s difficult to enter information accurately when you’re surfing between so many screens, attempting to modify or create new records in this capacity only leaves room for poor quality data to be entered. GridBuddy Cloud grids make it possible to work with specific pieces of information across one or more systems in a single, editable view. Imagine being able to reference and modify account, contact, and opportunity information for all your open deals in one Excel-like interface.
We know sales and service teams fulfill separate purposes. They rely on some of the same information in your databases, like account and contact details, but how and when it’s used differs. Sales is focused on leads and opportunities while service is zeroed in on cases, so trying to make them function in the same workspace because of how your databases are configured doesn’t make much sense. It also leaves users guessing which fields are for them to manage. GridBuddy Cloud role-based workspaces ensure the right information is front and center for each user based on their goals and responsibilities for frictionless, focused work.
Most pieces of technology implemented for your teams’ use come with the promise of increased productivity. My question to this claim is always, does this productivity boost come with more or less effort? With GridBuddy Cloud, it’s definitely the latter. In addition to its spreadsheet-style arrangement of data and role-based workspaces, the out-of-the-box ReadyGrids address common sales and service use cases for an immediate increase in productivity. Couple that with their ability to be customized and you’ve got yourself a productivity powerhouse.
I know more than a few of us have encountered the chaos of acquisitions. When you welcome a new organization into your own, you’re also inheriting their databases. Cue the mad dash and hair pulling of the IT team as they plan how long it will take to clean up and migrate business system data. With GridBuddy Cloud, you give everyone breathing room to adjust to the new normal and migrate data in a way that supports the business instead of stressing it. Because GridBuddy Cloud aggregates data from multiple systems into one user-centric interface, end users can continue to focus on their goals and IT teams can strategize without halting current business processes.
Improving your teams’ productivity, data quality, and adoption doesn’t have to be a challenge. Bridge the gap between your data sources with GridBuddy Cloud. Find out more here.
