Do you use Excel as a customer database? Seems logical.

It's easy to use, you're co-workers are familiar with it and all data is located in one single spreadsheet.

- The thing is: Excel wasn't created to manage customer data. And it shows.

You lose a lot of time entering data manually and you open the door for mistakes and outdated information.

Meanwhile, a customer database is super important for your business. It's the basis for a good sales follow-up, it's where you keep your customers and leads as well als your vendors and suppliers. You need up-to-date customer data to support your marketing and to build great customer relationships.

- Do you still have a good overview of your customer database? Which sales opportunities need follow-up? Which invoices aren't sent out yet? If your answer is "no" to any of these questions, you need something better than Excel
