With QuickBooks Customer Manager 2.5, all the information you need to keep close tabs on your customers are at your fingertips. Whether it's the name and contact information you keep in Outlook or Outlook Express, the appointments you track in Outlook, or the financials such as invoices and balances that you track through QuickBooks, it can all be merged into one easy-to-access location. And with advance customization features, Customer Manager lets you determine the exact information you want synchronized. In other words, it's you're in complete control.
To view a particular customer's QuickBooks financials, you can click on any QuickBooks item in the Recent History pane to jump to QuickBooks to see the actual transaction, whether it's an invoice, payment record, purchase order or check. You can also link directly to your customer's QuickBooks QuickReport. If you use Outlook to manage your calendar, simple click "New Appointment" and Customer Manager will launch Outlook and open an appointment window. You can then create an appointment that will appear in both Outlook and Customer Manager. (If you don't use Outlook, you can use the calendar built-in to Customer Manager to keep track of your appointments. It's easy-to-use and looks similar to a spiral-bound calendar you may keep on your desk.) And finally, the Name Record screen is the nerve center of Customer Manager and summarizes all the key customer information you need in one place. You can see details such as phone numbers, files, projects, appointments, and financial transactions -- all at one quick glance. You can access them in one click.
Among the many panes and action buttons that Customer Manager offers are customer profile, which includes the customer address, phone numbers, contacts, e-mail address, web site and more; recent history, which shows a chronological history of communications, appointments, QuickBooks financial transactions, and related notes and documents; and notes, which allows you to enter details of phone calls and general notes, such as directions to the customer's office, while you're talking with the customer on the phone, and much more.
You can even link files, e-mails, pictures --just about anything that relates to a customer or project -- into one place, regardless of which application it came from. So you can quickly view appointments and e-mails with attachments intact, as well as letters, faxes, logos, artwork, PDF files, spreadsheets, and more. It's easy to drag multiple e-mails at one time, and enter to-do reminders and notes from a phone call or project, and schedule events right in Customer Manager.
Thousands of Details, One Screen
An advanced Project Record feature lets you stay on top of everything related to a project on a single screen. You can use this feature to track all the details related to a project, including contacts, suppliers, vendors and files such as spreadsheets, images, or project plans, as well as set pop-up alerts to remind you of important tasks and appointments, ensuring that nothing slips through the cracks.
But even with all these consolidation features, Customer Manager still lets you keep in close, personal touch with your customers. With it you can easily send personalized messages to a few, or a few hundred, customers. With merge features that let you create Microsoft Word letter templates, you can use your customer information to create letters and labels for quick, cost-effective mailings to any number of your customers.
Easy to Set-up and Use
If you're familiar with QuickBooks financial software, learning how to use Customer Manager will be a breeze because it looks and works just like your financial software. The desktop looks like a browser, and you navigate with one click on the icons, toolbars and links. In fact, even if you are not familiar with QuickBooks, if you're like most people, you can install the software and run through the easy-to-navigate setup and be up and running in about 30 minutes. It's the best steps you'll take to keep your customers and their valuable information in close track.
