In financial services one of management’s key concerns is efficiency. Efficiency in numbers, planning, strategizing, and managing are the name of the game for those in finance. But, while financial businesses are focused on maximizing profits and growth for their clients, it is important that they not overlook ways they can maximize their own business efforts. One solution where they can realize a significant impact is customer relationship management (CRM) tools and software.
The financial industry is a competitive one. Businesses in this sector must focus heavily on setting themselves apart from their competition, manage their current and potential clients, and ensure their processes are streamlined as efficiently as possible. CRM software was designed specifically to help businesses in all sectors be the best they can be.
Redtail CRM is perfectly poised to partner with those in the financial industry. In this article, we will take a closer look at Redtail and how the Quik! App integrated with Redtail as a useful tool to maximize time and growth.
What Is Redtail CRM?
Redtail is the first cloud-based customer relationship management tool that was designed for the financial services industry. Many budget-conscious financial advisors appreciate Redtail’s competitive pricing. But cost savings aside, the features Redtail offers are built to support efficiency.
According to Forrester Research, businesses that utilize a CRM system can see conversion rates improve by 300%. Additionally, 50% of business teams increase productivity when using a system with a mobile CRM.
In general, when it comes to CRM software, it is easier for businesses to utilize a service that is familiar with their sector and knows what they need. Redtail has features geared towards supporting financial professionals and their clients. Here is a look at what you can expect:

Pre-filled Data – Select your client(s) and then data from over 50 client fields in Redtail is automatically added to the form or group of forms.
Progressive Fill – Repetitive data is automatically filled onto your form(s) from Quik!’s library of over 34,000 forms.
