DEVELOPMENT ACCELERATOR

Accelerate Economic Development

The prosperity of every community is tied to Economic Development. Every practitioner needs their tools to excel at their practice. The Economic Developer’s best tool: The CRM!

Economic Development Organizations need a place to capture and share information about organizations in their region. Whether those organizations are targets or recipients of assistance, partner organizations, board members, office holders, or media, the need for shared contacts is critical to future business development efforts.

As new initiatives are launched, it is important to log outreach activities, and that the right messages have been shared with key organizations.

When a qualified company seeks assistance, being able to track and share the status of each business development opportunity is key. Reporting on opportunity projects by status, region, jobs, industry, type and investment is a must.

Once a project is approved, it must be monitored, to be sure that the goals and project reporting requirements are being met.

Today’s Economic Development Organizations know exactly that what they want - a CRM solution that:

  • Meets their complex and changing needs

  • Is easy for their staff to use

  • Secure, anywhere access with no internal IT systems needed

  • Works with the tools that they use every day (e.g. MS Outlook, MS Office 365, Smartphones, Tablets)

  • Can be adapted to meet their unique needs

  • Can integrate with their existing IT and financial systems

  • Dashboards & reports that provide accurate information about outreach activities, pending and active projects, jobs and investments by industry and project type

  • Can change as their business needs change
