Grand Forks, ND, United States, 2008/11/03 - Ntractive, the company that brought you Elements SBM, the Hybrid Web application for small business management is proud to announce that North American Land Network has selected Elements SBM as its primary CRM application.
Jared Hughes, Chief Operating Officer of North American Land Network, joined the Elements SBM beta in May 2008 as he was seeking a CRM and small business application to manage his company's information. The challenge his company faced was finding a web-based solution that ran on Mac OS X, the operating system his team selected when they started North American Land Network. The company connects buyers and sellers of recreational real estate through online services and needed a way to keep all their information organized so they could focus on making phone and online sales. Hughes commented, with Elements SBM, it was love at first sight. It is able to handle our entire operations - from lead and customer management to recording sales to handling finances. Not only does Elements SBM do all of this efficiently, it does it affordably.
Comparing the other solutions he had worked with his the past, including Salesforce and PipelineDeals, Hughes noted, "We found that Elements put every tool we needed behind a beautiful Graphic User Interface (GUI) - two things seldom found in one application."
North American Land Network has created a network of websites targeted at niche markets and recreational real estate aimed at helping sellers successfully market their properties online. The company focuses heavily on cold-calling real estate agents throughout the United States to increase product awareness, using Elements SBM to manage leads and customers, create call queues, record sales and post financial transactions. "It is central to our company's operations," says Hughes.
Throughout the Elements SBM beta, North American Land Network has worked closely with Ntractive, asking questions, giving feedback and sharing how they used the Hybrid Web application for their business operations. Several months into the Elements SBM beta Hughes commented, "Elements SBM is filling a void in a segment that has long been overlooked: Mac-based small business. The development of Elements SBM is good for small business, Apple and the SaaS industry."
The two companies, North American Land Network and Ntractive have collaborated to create a case study, outlining more about how online real estate marketing company uses Elements SBM to run its business operations.
