Client relationship management is an approach to managing project opportunities with current and potential clients. Within the CRM feature of IngeniousIO, you can manage the pipeline of project opportunities and get immediate status on the likelihood of winning a project. The CRM feature is a single source of information for any and all projects your company has in its pipeline.
CRM functionality is available within the PROIO subscription plan for all workspace types. The Admin or Project Executive account type is required to adjust the CRM settings for your company's workspace.
The CRM stages and their % of win probability within your company's workspace can be edited by adjusting the CRM stages within company settings.
Add or adjust opportunity stages within the pipeline by going to company settings and adjusting the CRM stages.
Note: the default Win Probability % can be adjusted to match your company's preferences. The default stage names are shown below:
