3 big benefits for Sage CRM users

If you are like most Sage CRM customers, one of your biggest challenges is you don’t know what you don’t know. As one of our customers once told me, “it’s like I have a Ferrari in my garage and I don’t even know how to open the garage door.”

It’s like I have a Ferrari in my garage and I don’t even know how to open the garage door.


You might be using your Sage CRM as a glorified Rolodex (or maybe not even that!) and feeling like you are missing out on many of the key advantages hidden away in the software.

Or you may have completely tricked out your Sage CRM system and be wondering if you have reached the pinnacle.

You are not alone in these feelings.


We launched the Sage CRM User Conference last year to address these concerns and to get people like you talking about the best tips, tricks, and strategies to use Sage CRM optimally in your business.

By all accounts, our attendees saw the conference as a high-value, “must attend” event. In the words of one 2018 attendee, “I can’t believe how valuable this conference is, and I can’t wait to start using some of these ideas when I get home!”


1. Learn “how” and “why,” not just “what”

Unlike many conferences these days that focus exclusively on “what” you can do, we designed the Sage CRM User Conference to combine the “what” with the “how.” And there was also quite a bit of the “why”: both why you should do certain things and why you should prefer one approach over another.

This year, you should expect more of the same, but also to benefit from going even deeper in to how Sage CRM works. Take advantage of two in-depth, roll-up-your-sleeves workshops during the conference that will walk through how the various elements of Sage CRM work in tandem to help you streamline your sales and your services.

During these mini-workshops, my team will walk you through the power and flexibility of the workflow engine, the tracking tab, dashboards, the sales and services pipelines, notifications and escalations, the self-service portal, the Advanced Email Manager (and how to control your email flow with it), and other key components of your Sage CRM application.

You will cover a lot of ground and come away with some great ideas to take back to your office so you can make huge strides forward with your CRM usage.

In addition to the mini-workshops, you will be offered the following sessions:


Sage CRM Roadmap and Q&A

  • Review the latest updates on what’s coming next for Sage CRM.
  • We’ll cover the hottest questions during the Q&A portion of this session. If you have any burning questions, submit them today!

Sage CRM Mobile Add-on

  • Review a third-party add-on for mobile Sage CRM.
  • How does it differ from out-of-the-box mobile capabilities and how will your team benefit from using it over other mobile options?

Sage CRM Add-on Showcase

  • Discover popular Sage CRM add-ons and extensions.
  • Learn how add-ons can dramatically increase the value of your Sage CRM implementation.

Hear from your Peers

  • Customers share their stories—good, bad, and ugly—about how they implemented and continue to use Sage CRM.
  • Hear tips, tricks, and real-world stories that can help you with your implementation.


2. Connect with and learn from each other

You will also enjoy the opportunity to network with other Sage CRM users and hear first-hand stories and experiences from your peers on how they use Sage CRM to optimize their businesses. Some of the best strategies often come from those avenues, and you are encouraged to bring your own stories to share!

You will meet people with a wide range of Sage CRM experiences. These will range from basic contact management and activity tracking to massively customized environments used to run all facets of their business and everything in-between.

And if you have problems you are struggling with, bring those to share as well!

Technical issues? User adoption woes? Interface headaches? Training difficulties? Unsure how to mobilize a new business development push?

You might find a perfect solution in one of the expert-led sessions or in hallway conversations or over meals.

Plus, you can schedule time with the Sage CRM technical and functional experts who will be in attendance to bounce around ideas or to troubleshoot a particular issue.


3. Identify opportunities to increase CRM value

This year, you will also hear from third-parties offering interesting, high-value, affordable add-on extensions to Sage CRM that will provide some quick improvements to core functionality.

There are several ways to extend your current system with approved third-party enhancements that will make life easier for you and your team.

With the right add-ons, you can achieve a huge boost in usability and value, and skip out on the costs and troubles of expensive, one-off customization.
