LeadMaster makes it easy to schedule call backs and appointments through a variety of means beyond simply adding an appointment to the calendar.  You can add appointments through Quick Actions, Workflow, Marketing Automation, Lead Nurturing etc.

Now when you mark those appointments as complete / done you have the option of having them stay on the calendar.  The option is in the User Settings area in the Calendar and Callbacks tab.  If enabled the completed appointments will appear in grey text.

LeadMaster’s Partner Alliance Program adds phone and fax functionality through integration with third party platforms.

LeadMaster, a leader in sales lead management & marketing automation solutions, announces integrations with CounterPath and InterFax. The new LeadMaster integration with CounterPath’s Bria4 soft phone provides advanced VoIP dialing. The new LeadMaster integration with InterFax provides HIPAA compliant send fax capability.

CounterPath’s latest soft phone product allows LeadMaster users to dramatically improve productivity by simply clicking on a phone number to place a call. The Bria4 is a carrier grade soft phone providing the ability to make and receive phone calls and video calls over the Internet. It also supports instant messaging and file transfer. The Bria4 works on the Windows 7 and 8 operating systems as well as Mac platforms. When used in conjunction with the LeadMaster Smart Queue, this integrated solution provides tremendous efficiency for sales teams, improving both speed to connect and daily call volume. Configuring LeadMaster to support click-to-call with the Bria4 takes only a moment, simply enable click-to-call in LeadMaster, enter VoIP logon credentials into the soft phone and the configuration is complete.

The InterFax integration allows LeadMaster users to send and receive faxes from within the LeadMaster application. The InterFax integration works within the LeadMaster Connector Architecture. The connector architecture is a framework for integrating LeadMaster with third party applications through the built-in LeadMaster workflow function. To enable the send fax function in LeadMaster, the user enters their InterFax user name and password and selects a fax template in the workflow automation function. With the configuration complete, anytime the user wants to send a fax they simply select the checkbox or drop-down menu that activates the workflow. Users can configure different checkboxes to send different fax templates. Sending a fax in LeadMaster is as easy as clicking a checkbox.

These integrations are available today in the standard LeadMaster configuration.

Weblinks provide a convenient way for you to connect LeadMaster to other online applications, examples include social media sites like FaceBook, Twitter, Linkedin as well as any other applications that you can access through a browser.  Using Weblinks you can quickly and easily look up the profile of any of your contacts / companies.

To create a weblink you’ll need Admin Access.  The typical use is to search the other application for the company or contact that resides in LeadMaster.

For example, suppose you have a new prospect and you want to read about them on FaceBook.

Here’s the search string that you’d put in the Weblink for a Facebook Company search.

https://www.facebook.com/search.php?q={!Company}

Here’s the search string that you’d put in the Weblink for a Facebook Contact search.

https://www.facebook.com/search.php?o=2048&init=dir&q={!CONTACT_LAST_NAME}+{!CONTACT_FIRST_NAME}

Sometimes the software company makes it hard to find the search box without logging in.  Usually with a little exploring you’ll be able to find a place to search.  Twitter is a good example.   Here’s the search string for a Twitter Company Search

New Feature – User Selectable Smart Queues

In July 2013 LeadMaster introduced ‘Smart Queues’.  Smart Queues provide the ability to organize leads from different sources and feed those to the user in prioritized order. Once users enter one of the Smart Queues they simply click on ‘Get Lead’ and the Smart Queue determines which lead has the highest priority and delivers that to the users.

The Smart Queue is easy to configure.  Select the availability of the records (this prevents the system from displaying a west coast record at 8am on the east coast), specify the search criteria for the records that will be included in this queue (for example trade show leads), select the sort options (for example select Call Attempts Ascending and you’ll get those records that haven’t been called yet) select the users who you want to have access to the queue and it’s ready to go.

This latest enhancement allows you to define individual queues for unique groups of callers.  For example you might want to organize your queues by product, geography, customer service rep or by any of the many fields available in the search engine.

New Feature – Moving Custom Forms from One Record to Another

Over the last 16 years LeadMaster has been used in every industry you can think of.  One of the reasons is the LeadMaster custom form.  It is basically a blank page that allows you, the user, to create the fields for the data you want to keep track of.  Field types include – text, text area, numbers, dates, single select, radio buttons, multi-select, checkboxes, summed question and upload file.

Now there’s a new way to use custom forms – they can be moved from one record to another.  Suppose you are an art auction house with the description of each individual piece of art recorded on a custom form.  When the art is sold you are now able to move the custom form from your inventory to the customer’s contact record.  Here’s how it works.

 

First find the record with the custom form.

Custom Form on Record

Custom Form on Record – Notice the Move button on the Right hand Side

Click on the Move button on the right hand side.  A window appears listing all of the companies in your database.  You can use the search box to find the company.

Custom Form Move

Select the Company Where You’d like the Custom Form to Move onto

When you click on the name of the company LeadMaster will confirm that you want to move it.  Click OK and the custom form is moved.
