This is a fantastic tool if you don’t need all the extra capabilities of a true CRM!

I travel to meet up with clients quite a bit. I was using a routing program ($70 per month) combined with Microsoft one note and also keeping track of a spreadsheet of visits with customers to turn in for my reporting. I did find where some CRM‘s have add-ons that allow you to do the routing, but I didn’t want to spend $150 a month. $70 was justifiable, I could save that in gas. I’m just that “cost conscious“.

I found this program. It easily allows me to do everything I need to do for a 1 time purchase of $25. After I imported My list of prospects, into my contacts, the program informed me they were new contacts to import. I was able to go in and pick and choose who I want to import, make custom fields for information that I need for each contact, and it automatically mapped them for me. It didn’t give me auto routing, but I’m OK with that. Everything I do can be logged or attached to each contact. I can schedule follow-ups, attach quotes and documents and have the information immediately available if the company asked me for it.

Unfortunately, the only desktop version that’s available is for macOS. This doesn’t help me as I have to use windows, but I have this program available on both my iPad and iPhone and I can always export the information if I need it to an Excel spreadsheet.

Perfect CRM!!!! Love it!!

My small company didn’t have a CRM when I came on board from a large corporation. I got tired of hand writing my call notes on file folders after each sales call, after each customer visit and then have to re-type again, a weeks worth of sales call notes to turn in to my boss.
After downloading 10 different CRM free trial apps, this was the very best for what I wanted to do and use it for. Now, I log notes after each sales call, can attach a picture or quote (pdf) to the account profile and or log notes, edit, add or delete important information to review before each sales call, add a “color tag” to each account, to visually see when I’m scrolling through customer list, who is a Prospect, Existing, Cold Call or No opportunity customer. Best part is, at the end of the week, I can just “Export” and can sort by date, logs, etc. my entire week of sales call notes to my boss by email. It’s complete with all customer information and I can also schedule a follow up or “To Do” for each call that notifies me when due or past due. I love this app!! My company has encourage the other reps to download and use this app and they will reimburse them. It’s an efficient tool. Best $25 ever spent!!

iCloud sync and Siri Commands

Auto sync with iCloud doesn’t work the way I would like it to work. I deleted contacts on phone app to 168 records. I Sync’d iCloud with google account to 168 records. When I used auto sync on this app it brings all my old deleted records back giving me a total of 216 contacts again even though I hand deleted these records on this CJ app too. Tech support was very responsive and gave me some work arounds and said they will provide some user options for syncing with iCloud in a future update. They didn’t have it set up to auto delete their app contact records to match iCloud for fear that you might also lose To-Dos, Logs and other information that is only in their app. Also, Siri add new contact doesn’t actually complete the action for me on my iPhone. Again, tech support has been very responsive to give me some things to try directly in the Apple Shortcuts app to get it to work right. Other than these issues I am extremely happy with all the capabilities of this Contacts Journal app and love the fact that this company is so responsive. Highly recommended you give this app a try.
