    Scott and Margaret flaunt two very different personalities. While he’s always the first to come to the office and the last to leave, she’s usually fashionably late. The rest of the team adores her, though, because Margaret is kind, respectful and easy to work with. Despite being a bona fide genius, Scott is unfortunately less so. Try as he might, he cannot seem to score the employee of the month recognition.

    It is, after all, where Margaret’s unbeatable.

    The fact that they are both highly intelligent people notwithstanding, her tact and empathy somehow trump his remarkable outside-the-box thinking. Even with his positive outlook, Scott has never been able to demonstrate the kind of performance his company is looking for. When Margaret was finally promoted into a customer service manager, Scott took a leave of absence to deal with his anger management issues.

    In the eternal struggle between soft and hard skills, Margaret’s emotional intelligence won another battle against Scott’s IQ.

    Here’s how raw genius hardly stands a chance when well-managed emotion is in the room, and why companies should learn to harness the power of emotionally intelligent people.

  • QuickBooks integration for Bitrix24 is out!

    Dmitry Davydov 13 September 2017

    Quickbooks.jpg

    Yes, we’ve done it. By popular request, the ‘official’ app for QuickBooks integration is out and available to all users, paid or free. This is the first iteration of the app and it syncs information for contacts, companies or accounts between your Bitrix24 and QuickBooks accounts. This is very convenient if you are issuing invoices from QuickBooks, rather than Bitrix24 for example. You will also get notification inside your Bitrix24 account when QuickBooks-issued invoices are paid by the client.

    We do have plans to add more two way sync features for commercial Bitrix24 users, so feel free to send your feedback, ideas and suggestions to info@bitrix24.com.

  • How to Assemble A Customer Success Team From Scratch

    Bitrix24 is big on definitions. It’s not because we prefer formality or take pleasure in officialism, but because we believe that things should be simple and clear. For every what, we like to know why before we figure out how. And, we like sharing. If you find our knowledge and experience useful, then we’ve succeeded.

    Speaking of which, success is a big buzz word around here. Last time, we tried to define what it means for the customers. As promised, we’ll now try to define what it means for the customer success teams. We’re assembling our own as we speak, and we’re eager to tell you what we’ve learned.

    Like everything else, our mission is simple and clear – to make our success yours.

    Retention, revenue expansion, churn. Mention them in any business environment, and the crowd’s reaction would always be unanimous. A thriving company, they’d say, depends on happy customers. It’s a classic case of cause and effect, really – if there’s no satisfaction for them, there’s no success for you.

    But, shouldn’t success be mutual?

    Don’t we all look to achieve the same desired outcome?

    According to Merriam-Webster, that’s exactly what success means.

    First, we were introduced to the experience economy. Then, the experience economy urged us to become customer-centric. Now, engaging experiences and customer satisfaction no longer suffice. The tables have turned, the terminology has evolved, and we’re looking at a brand new concept.

    “Courteous treatment will make a customer a walking advertisement”, said James Cash Penney back in the simpler days of entrepreneurship. Today, the idea behind his quote is even more significant. As our modern clientele grows less and less patient, staying courteous becomes less of a choice.

    But, showing politeness doesn’t suffice either; speed, efficiency, and availability are just as crucial. Not only do our customers expect to be delighted every step of the way, but they want to feel special as well. That’s where customer relationship management steps in, simultaneously enriching their experience and accelerating our growth.

    To help you master the jargon and employ the best CRM solution, we’ve compiled a list of frequent terms and phrases used by experts and providers.

    You don’t have to be a lead generation strategist to understand how most business tool providers attract and convert with “free for life” packages. As an entrepreneur, there’s a good chance that you’ve already fallen for a covert commercial bait, and were eventually asked to pay for what was promised to be completely without charge.

    Still, free tools are crucial for getting a small business up and running. Whether it comes to day-to-day operational management and finance, brandable graphic design or social media marketing, the complementary features they pack are a much-needed aid for individuals and team players alike.  

    With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 45 freemium tool suites that won’t trick you with hidden agendas and fine print. Instead of robbing you of your time and effort, they’ll deliver real value and helpful automation, along with some truly powerful functionalities on the side.

  • How to Set the Right Price for a Product

    In a world driven by value, product pricing is nothing less than essential to a company’s success. Unfortunately, it’s also a catch 22: charge less, and you’ll be short on profits, but charge more, and the customers will leave.

    It's not all that simple though. Take Apple, for instance. Their pricing strategy allows them not only to stay competitive, but also to target specific, high-spending audiences while staying within the reach of a mass market at the same time. UBS analyst Steven Milunovich defines this approach as “mainstream luxury” – it is a clever twist on premium pricing that we’ll talk more about later, and a good example of how effective a right strategy can be.

    Maxim Kolpakov and Ilya Kuklin

    Chief Technology Officer Ilya Kuklin and Marketing Manager Maxim Kolpakov share how they implemented Bitrix24 in the construction company RNR.

    Our company has been in the market since 2001. We were the first to bring Canadian technology of building I-beam frame houses to Russia. This technology is used to create and adjust the main elements of a house at the place of production. The construction team then later assembles the house as a Lego constructor on the site.

    They say life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans. In business, however, planning is everything. There’s no quality deliverable without a pre-planned project, just as there is no fruitful project without a solid risk management plan.
