At each enterprise there is a certain process of working out commercial offers to potential and regular customers. Rarely, it is visually presented in the form of a scheme, more often it is described in the instructions, and, basically, if you did not forget to set up a commercial offer, it is very good if, after some time, the manager asks the client whether the offer is interesting or not. to a positive decision.
In other words - in general, commercial proposals are given entirely to the management of managers. Management only later on in terms of sales can judge the effectiveness of the work of managers, often losing a lot of potential transactions that could take place if the manager conducted the commercial proposal according to a specific process.
Even having the instructions “How to work with commercial offers”, without an automated process, it is not possible to monitor the execution and following the instructions.
As a result, the usual practice is when managers work “on the tops” and perform the role of “living people, not robots” accepting incoming calls from customers who are paid by paid advertising. Now there is a lot of competition in almost all industries, which requires maximum attention to customers (potential, permanent). A call that is not made on time is not a successful deal, at least. The processing of customer requests must be monitored.
An automated business process streamlines work with business proposals.
Screenshots of the CPM 1.4 configuration from Rarus will be shown below - this configuration is on ordinary forms. Similarly, processes on controlled forms "1С:Підприємство" are automated using the CPM 2.0 configuration.
If you use one of the configurations - “UTP”, “UT 2.3” or others on ordinary "1С:Підприємство" forms, then put “CRM 1.4 from Rarus” - this “iron” will work. If you want "CRM 2.0 from Rarus" or from "1С:Підприємство", then you also need to replace the main configuration with another configuration on managed forms. If you have regular sales, the configuration "CRM 2.0" can work independently, without using the basic configuration.

Business Process Tasks
The ideal way to organize the work of an enterprise is “From Tasks”, which are automatically created according to a given process , if it is difficult to automate and work all processes “From Tasks”, then you can automate one of the most key processes.
An example of when business process automation is needed:
There is a task - to automate the generation of tasks for the formation of cyclical customer orders. For each client there is a certain period of formation of orders of buyers - every month, every Monday, once in two weeks, every Tuesday or another day of the week. Without a business process in such a case is not enough.
A common mistake in making a decision: Start programming without business processes using typical, common tasks. As practice shows, further begin additional wishes: how to see all the tasks; over the business process, over time it may be necessary to generate more than one task; the need to analyze processes as a whole, rather than specific tasks; necessary reports on tasks, access rights). As a result, such a self-written solution goes to the client is not justified expensive and difficult to maintain by other specialists..
Below is a list of current tasks of the enterprise, in the red frame the list of reports for analyzing tasks and processes, we see the deadline for completing these tasks, you can postpone the task by commenting on the reason. You can configure the necessary selections, the list of types of selections to the left of the task list. Current selection - "Current". Variants of selection from practice: “warehouse tasks” or another department, tasks of a specific manager, etc.

In case of a negative result, the business process re-creates the task “Learn about the client's decision” after a certain period of time until the final result is obtained, positive or negative.

The final point of the business process with a positive result - the formation of the transaction.

The pictures above show the functionality of the standard configuration “CRM”, which is installed in the configurations of many companies, but very few people reach the implementation of business processes and work organization from tasks. We have been implementing CRM for more than 8 years, we know how to build processes and organize the execution of tasks by users. We have a lot of developments that improve the usability of “CRM”, for example - it is “automatic execution of tasks when creating documents in the database”, “automatically starting business processes when certain events in the database”, “subordination structure of documents taking into account tasks and business processes "and many others.
