Do you want Click to Dial from your Capsule CRM system?

If you already use Capsule CRM and have a VoIP phone system then it is just a simple 4 step process to link the 2 together so that you can Click to Dial your Capsule Contacts and Companies direct from Capsule CRM.

If you are like me and end up transposing numbers in the short distance between screen and phone then this could be just what you are looking for. Follow the instructions and never miss-dial a phone number again.

Bria Softphone for VoIPJust follow the simple instructions over at the SystemAssure site and you could be using your stored phone numbers to dial direct from Capsule CRM.

Nothing else to buy, even if you don’t have a SoftPhone there are Free SoftPhones for Windows that work with these instructions.

The instructions will work for any VoIP phone system that works with the Free 3CX softphone, or the premium Bria 3 Softphone.

Don’t Use Capsule CRM?

Whilst the instructions have been written for Capsule CRM the process will work just as well with any other web based CRM system that allows you to create additional fields. All you will need to do is to find the equivalent data generated fields in your CRM system and you should be able to get the instructions working for your system.

If you don’t currently use a CRM system in your business then I recommend that you take a look at Capsule CRM as for the price there is nothing to beat it.

When did you last Backup Your Computer?

Most of us have loads of irreplaceable information on our computers, photo’s, business information, that book we have been trying to write. In general this information only lives in one place, our computer, but when did you last backup your computer.

The other week my laptop was knocked onto the floor, whilst I was on a clients site, unfortunately the screen and keyboard broke and the laptop was a write off. Saturday morning saw me in the local PC Super Store buying a replacement, as I needed to have a working laptop for Monday mornings meetings.

Luckily my laptop was set up with our Cloud Backup service, Best Online Backup UK, so within a couple of minutes I had access to all of my documents, templates, photos etc. from my new PC. I have never been so glad of having installed a simple piece of software that works silently in the background.

For me the answer to ‘When did you last backup your computer?’  is simple, every minute of every day that my PC is connected to the Internet. As soon as I save a new file, document etc it starts to backup to the Cloud Backup Service. It even supports versions and incremental backups, so if I update a large document only the changes in the document get uploaded.
