About Bicom Systems
Bicom Systems is a small telecommunications company with less than 50 employees headquartered near London. Established in 2003, Bicom Systems integrated open source telephony technology into a complete proprietary package called PBXware. Released one year later in 2004, PBXware is the first open standards turnkey telephony system. Today, PBXware has been expanded to include three different levels of service. As a global company, Bicom Systems has offices in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada, France and the United States. In 2014, Bicom Systems expanded its range to include India through a partnership with Santhosh Kumar. Another partnership with Entrust ICT in 2015 allowed Bicom Systems to expand into the Australian market. The company has continued to grow through partnerships and software improvements.
PBXware is Bicom System’s main product line. PBXware is a downloadable software that interfaces with an existing telephony system. It pairs with both VoIP and traditional PSTN technologies to provide an accessory rich interface. Features like conference bridges, call screening, hot desking and IVR auto attendants are included within the package. Users can set their own preferences for call forwarding, overhead paging, remote access, personal IVR, instant recording and more. PBXware also includes Fax over IP (FOIP), which allows the exchange of faxes between two machines connected via the Internet or a traditional phone line. One advantage of PBXware is that it is software based, so it is easy to move between locations. It works with the existing system. A dashboard provides a single page overview of the system, including information on call statistics and running services. Within PBXware, there are three different solutions: Business, Call Center and Multi-Tenant. PBXware is intended to lower costs, increase productivity, and support legacy technology and handsets.
Bicom Systems tracks its achievements through case studies with customers. In 2008, Bicom Systems installed a telephony system for the non-profit Legal Aid Ontario. The office’s 450 staff members were networked via PBXware into a single dial plan. Reduced time and the ability to add on new offices were highlighted by the customer as benefits. Bicom Systems has also worked with NASA at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In six weeks, Bicom Systems delivered a PBXware-based system that allowed the supervisor to monitor 20 conferences concurrently. Systems have been deployed at Airbus Defense and Space, Dell Global, Islamic Relief, Columbia University and others. Although Bicom Systems is not regularly recognized for its innovation and customer service, the case studies demonstrate that the company is developing great solutions for its customers.
About Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 CRM is a brand new app, currently being rolled out to Business Premium subscribers at no additional charge. Generally available in early 2017, Microsoft is currently working on full mobile access to the new platform. Already the company has released an app for iOS that includes note taking, mobile scanning for business cards, and meeting information.
Even though this app is new, it is connected with Microsoft Office, and its email client, Outlook. Like other CRM programs, it automates and organizes customer and sales data to streamline marketing and increase revenues. This is a welcome new tool for businesses, and in a format that most are already familiar with, having used the other components of Office. In fact, it is accessed through the “Customer Manager” tab in the Outlook toolbar so that team members can effortlessly add contacts, documents, tasks, events, and conversations to the CRM.
Apart from storing information, the platform also allows users to set up reminders to respond to customer interactions and link tasks with a particular company, contact, or project. Deals can be organized in several different ways, and sharing customer information with a team is made easier with the “Focused List” that hones details for particular emphasis.
Information is automatically gathered from email, the Outlook Calendar, and call logs, and helps with tracking commitments and opportunities by offering up timely details and reminders, and it helps prioritize time with the focused lists that keep everyone aware of the most pressing projects, deals, and customers.
Microsoft already has a full-blown enterprise system in Microsoft Dynamics 365, but it’s geared more toward large businesses, and Office 365 aims to be a lighter and more user-friendly app that small to midsized businesses can use to conduct lead acquisition and tracking, as well as customer outreach without the need to do a lot of duplicative data entry. It is easy to get started using it and companies can move up to Dynamics for deep dive information and customer insights when their business scales to a size where those are needed.
CRM platforms are getting smarter. By automating workflows and using machine learning, organizing and searching for customer data is easier for everyone to use. Advances in machine learning, in addition to business intelligence (BI), will continue to be a focus of this CRM platform and others that need data automation but don’t have an entire sales force to manage customer relationships. No doubt this will grow as businesses look for more efficient and smarter ways to engage their leads, manage communications, and convert them into customers.
COST: Free for users with Office 365 Enterprise or Business Premium plan.
