Selected Features

Activity Feed Widget

Previously, the Activity Feed took over X2CRM, greeting users upon logging in with updates from the entire system. Similar to a Facebook wall, the Activity Feed tracks user activity, customer touchpoints and internal social posts in one easy-to-swallow screen. Users can now track activity through a widget on the right hand side of the system, providing real time communication throughout the organization regardless of where they are in the CRM system.

Google Analytics Integration

Google Analytics integration is useful both externally and internally. Users with Admin role permissions can now track website visitors in real time with Google Analytics within X2CRM. This allows users to see locations of visitors and the amount of time spent on the website, while X2CRM notifies sales representatives of their assigned Contact´s activity. Plus, this feature may be used internally by sales managers to track system users´ activity within the application. This provides insights for sales managers about where their sales representatives are spending their time, which modules are being used and what the levels of adoption look like.

Customizable User Interface Themes and Colors

A fun and personable user interface feature, the customizable background allows users to change their backgrounds to customized colors or images. Because honestly, you can´t go longer than 20 minutes without looking at your cute puppy dog.

Unlike other CRM systems, X2CRM was designed to be light and fast, while boasting an intuitive user interface. With X2CRM, users have the ability to capture leads from the web, nurture leads through specified workflows and track these leads as they return to your website, helping to accurately gauge interest and cue sales processes. The inclusion of marketing automation, including a rich campaign editor, into the CRM system ensures a comprehensive picture of leads, customers and everybody in between.
