Are you a slave to your email? Time to take back control.

Is your email inbox out of control? You’re not alone. Email is the biggest time sucker in business, with workers spending up to 2.6 hours per day searching, reading and writing emails (source: McKinseu Global Institute). It doesn’t have to be this way.

We can show you how to stop being a slave to your email and start making it work for you. Salpo CRM gives you the tools you need to take control of your email, while trimming trimming hours of wasted time off your work week.

Join one of our regular Salpo CRM webinars to learn more:

  • Sync your email with Salpo CRM using our IMAP connector
  • Connect your Gmail or Outlook email account to Salpo CRM
  • Auto-display new and historic emails against known Contacts
  • Exclude personal or unwanted Contacts from your stored emails
  • Instantly access your email, where and when you need it

Each session lasts around 45 minutes, including time for your questions. Visit our events page to see when the next email webinar session is, or if anything else takes your fancy. And click to learn more about Salpo CRM.

A day at the races with the Pied Piper Appeal

We have the best clients. One of our newest, the Pied Piper Appeal, recently invited us to attend their annual business lunch and auction, at the Cheltenham Festival – pinnacle of the National Hunt Racing calendar.

We happily obliged, enjoying a fabulous day out, including a three-course lunch, a smattering of champagne and just a smidgen of gambling. We didn’t take many pics but here are a couple, showing our vantage point course-side and our table within the huge dedicated marquee…

 

Such a fun day. But it wasn’t all indulgence. We also networked with many other Gloucestershire businesses, who came together to support this worthy local charity. An auction was also held, to raise important funds for this worthy cause.

The Pied Piper Appeal are using our CRM Business Platform to manage all their funding and stakeholder interactions. Here’s what they had to say…

‘Salpo created a bespoke system to suit our needs, providing top-level reports quickly and easily and logging communications with businesses, volunteers, suppliers and individuals’.

t for children in hospital and in the special schools in Gloucestershire.

Goodbye Eventbrite, hello Salpo events

We like Eventbrite as much as the next software company – it’s a great off-the-shelf solution, and one we’ve personally enjoyed using. But you can’t beat being in control, can you? And now we are, thanks to the Salpo Events module.

Sounds technical, and I guess it is, but once set up it pretty much runs itself. The Events module sits within Salpo CRM, allowing us to input details of all our upcoming events, then automatically populate the events page on our site. All details are pulled across,  including date, time, title, description and a link to register.

When people register for an event, their details are recorded within our CRM, adding them as a contact and connecting them to the event as an attendee. Registration also triggers a confirmation email to them, including required login details etc, and one to us with details of the registration.

Once the Events module is set up, it’s a huge time saver. Do you run webinars or physical events? Is this something you could use? Register now for a free 14-day trial of Salpo CRM or contact us to book a demo. Oh, and do check out our events page for upcoming webinars.
