When you start a project, the first thing you do is create a project plan. A project plan is a document designed to guide the control and execution of the project. In simple terms, a project plan establishes tasks, milestones, and deliverables and assigns people to each task. There is a lot of data and effort that go into a project plan creation. Yet there is one thing that a project plan doesn’t include, but that one thing can jeopardize the entire project.

Inside and outside sales can often be perceived as complete opposites. According to InsideSales.com research report on the State of Sales in the United States and EMEA, field sales made up 71.2% of the sales force, while inside sales made up only 28.8% of the sales force in 2017. The situation is rapidly changing though, as the sales models are blending and the differences between the two become less and less noticeable.
We’ve added an ability to schedule appointments and book resources inside Bitrix24 CRM. If you run a service-based business, like a nail salon, a vet clinic or an auto repair shop, you’ll love this new feature.
Here’s what it’s all about. Suppose you are a dog groomer. It takes an hour to do the job, so when a client calls, you tell them about available time slots and book them for a certain date and time. Now you can do that inside Bitrix24 CRM. Awesome, right?
