What can you use the app for?

SlateCRM helps users manage their customer relationships. The application provides a simple, effective way to stay on top of tasks and review action that needs taken. Users can see their completed items as well as those that are still waiting to be done. Tasks can be assigned to specific contacts and include the name of the person who finished the task. When a contact is associated with a company, the SlateCRM aggregates all notes applied to that contact and places them under the company name. This allows the user to see all recent activity for a company as well as individual details for specific contacts. Contact profiles include the individual’s name, the company they are associated with and a small image as well as their contact details. Tasks can also be labeled to indicate priority. After completing a task, the user can quickly check it off. Users can also toggle between upcoming, completed and assigned tasks.
