West Newbury, MA, United States, 2009/03/27 - Specifically designed to help marketing consultants, Actionize helps organize and improve project team productivity in small businesses - Actionize.com.
Actionize Inc., a Swiss-based software company announces a new release of its Client Engagement System.
Designers, public relations specialists, website developers, product managers, product marketers, and other marketing consultants can register and begin using Actionize for free just by signing up at the Actionzie website.
"No Time Marketing" author and small business marketing expert, Alyssa Dver, noted, "In today's highly competitive and business constrained economy, it's the opportune time for every marketing consultant to improve how he/she obtains and supports clients."
Unlike customer relationship management systems (CRM), Actionize focuses on smaller organizations where individuals typically contribute to multiple client engagements simultaneously. For example, an individual may be leading one project and participating in multiple others. Actionize gives that user a complete view of all the projects and the tasks that they are involved along with access to all relevant team members and project information.
Actionize features include:
• Dashboard that summarizes critical business information such as current open tasks and client follow up requirements. Users can drill down into details easily;
• Project Management to help coordinate virtual teams and provide accountability and reporting to clients without adding overhead or time;
• Document Management for files to be stored and shared within a project or client records for future referral;
• Contacts & Clients that allows users to build better client relationships by storing relevant information associated with each contact including files and relations.
Among these and other benefits, registration entitles members to access The Actionize Community which includes expert views and member-to-member dialogue. The Actionize Community provides valuable support to marketing professionals that otherwise may be working in single person or virtual business environments. It's like having a virtual board of advisors available 24x7.
Founder and CEO, Mark Hediger commented, "Actionize brings the best of the older independent small business applications and social networks into a single, web-based system that is much easier to use and manage."
Actionize user Brian Lawley of 280Group, a global product management and marketing consulting company noted, "Actionize is elegant and unexpectedly powerful." Lawley continued, "Because I could eliminate a number of other disparate software and hardware systems that I used to manage the practice, I have already saved at least 15% in real administrative costs. Actionize subsequently allows me to take that saved time and money so I can better focus on getting additional business and delivering all of our client projects more productively."
