How are spreadsheets killing your
No lead-to-deal visibility
It's hard for sales reps to have a clear idea of how many deals they are currently working on, and which stage of the pipeline a deal is currently in. Without real-time updates and visual representations of your sales pipeline, deals are easily going to slip through the cracks.
Poor organization of data
Yes, spreadsheets can store data, but that data is seldom organized. There's no way you can establish relational hierarchy of records within your system, which makes it hard and time-consuming for you to access information.
Failure to arrest duplicate entries
If you email or call the same customer twice, your reputation is sure to take a severe hit. And, if you decide to stick with spreadsheets, you're also going to generate a substantial amount of duplicate entries.
More manual data entry
With spreadsheets, the struggle is real when it comes to manual entry of records. There are always going to be instances where you need to bulk edit a set of records (like adding a tag or updating a field), something that is just not possible with spreadsheets.
In the world of GDPR and privacy-first business culture, you simply cannot leave crucial customer data on spreadsheets which can be copied and exported by anyone with access.
