Project Management Software (PMS) and Customer Relationship Systems (CRS) is a core thing to keep all the company’s management clear and updated about all the processes that are going on within the company, as well as to see the customers flow and the stages you may have stopped according to some circumstances.
The more your business grows – the more processes it involves. Even now, whether you are an employee, or the head of the company, try to analyze your daily work. Do you have a daily plan? Do you have a week plan and more? Or you just move with the flow and do whatever case appears? Are there any recordings of your work and the success of the cases and the stages of the customer’s relationship development? Sometimes there is a tipping point every company comes to where the critical situation appears and you have to look back and realize that all the time you have been working, all the cases, all the work, all the processes became a complete mess.

So the best way to manage it all is from the beginning. Once you have an idea to create something, once you take steps – record it in order to have a chance to analyze the progress and see how far you are now.
