Personal note from Carol…
I hope the above information helps you understand that I know what I’m doing. I’ve carried a sales “bag” for many years so I can relate to the pressures and needs of your sales organization. At CRM Total Solutions, our primary goal is to help you with your entire business process. Any CRM is just part of that process and needs to be integrated into your entire environment and that’s where we can help.
But who am I and what can you expect from me and my company?
I care deeply about those around me. I believe we are all connected to one another and that we are called to show this in our everyday lives. As part of that calling, I volunteer my time and am active in my church.
I like to have fun and be challenged – I am an avid rock climber and love to tackle the next mountain.
I am trying to do my part in energy consumption – I have solar panels and drive my Vespa whenever possible.
I have a young adult son, who is the light of my life and truly a wonderful young man – I am so very proud of him.
I care about my clients and have been able to develop strong connections and relationships with each of them. I demonstrate this by being highly responsive to their needs and always trying to go the extra mile to meet their goals.
You can expect me the same from me – I leverage state of the art tools to ensure a high level of responsiveness and support. I understand that you are the customer and it is my job to make sure you have what you need to be successful.
