Is Your Franchise CRM Software 'Brag-Worthy'?

Convinced your current franchise CRM software is a “brag-worthy” business asset? Let’s put that to the test.

This article explains what makes our franchise CRM software so great compared to other solutions. Read on to see how your current solution holds up and learn what the competition has up their sleeve.

Franchisesoft Is Built By And For Franchise Owners

Truly “brag-worthy” franchise CRM software is created by people with real  franchise experience. The “by-and-for” factor guarantees that the software is built for the specific demands of franchising, which can be hard to communicate to developers.

Better yet, your franchise CRM software is created by a team made up of franchisors and franchisees from different industries, each of whom who can offer unique insights and experience to help create a flexible solution that works for any business, at any level.

We weren’t satisfied with the franchise CRM software that was on the market, so we created a solution that had everything we were looking for. We wanted more opportunities for automation; better reporting and analytics; simplified marketing and communications; dashboard franchise performance monitoring; and the capacity to manage all aspects of our business from a single app. Most importantly, we wanted franchise CRM software that could drive sales, referrals, and customer satisfaction ratings through the roof for franchisors and franchisees alike.

We wanted all that and more, so we designed our dream franchise CRM software. That’s FranchiseSoft.

Some of our franchise CRM software features include:

  • Seamless conversion of leads to customers
  • Simplified communication with all, some, or individual customers
  • Task and event scheduling as it relates to customers
  • Simple and accessible documentation of correspondence with customers
  • Intuitive customer invoice and statement generation
  • Application of payment against invoices
  • Interfacing with Authorize.net for credit card processing
  • Revenue reports processing
  • Detailed reports on customer operations
