Internal collaboration is indispensable to remain connected with your co-workers and boost productivity. A report by Businesswire states that 71% of employees feel more productive when connected with their colleagues.
It becomes easier to deliver things on time and enrich customer experience when there is a cordial space for employees to ask questions to each other, share tasks when they get stuck, and collaborate seamlessly.
Nowadays, there are many instant messaging apps available for collaboration. But, have you ever thought about an app integrated into a CRM application that helps you carry out internal communication effortlessly?
Yes, it is possible with Vtiger Internal Chat.
Vtiger Internal Chat facilitates real time-time conversations with team members in an organization. When customer data and tasks are stored in a CRM application, it becomes difficult to extract information and share or discuss it with your team members on external chat applications.
Internal Chat increases the effectiveness of communication by providing direct access to the CRM data. Employees can engage in real-time conversation and do not have to toggle between different chatting apps.
Now, let us look at the various features of the Vtiger Internal Chat below:
The core features in Vtiger Internal Chat are Individual Chat, Group Chat, and Notifications.
As the name suggests, Individual Chat allows employees to have a one-on-one conversation with another team member. For example, when you want to take special approval from your manager on a discount or a quote, you can use this option. You can search for your teammates in the search bar by typing the first few alphabets of their names.
The Internal Chat module in Vtiger allows you to collaborate with your team members in a group. If you want to know the status of a client meeting or quickly want to access an important document, you can message your team members and the notification will pop up instantly on their chat window. Internal Chat in Vtiger reduces the long hours of waiting to get replies from emails or visiting desks of your team members and get your queries solved.
For example, if a sales manager wants to discuss important matters regarding monthly quotas with their team members, group chat is the ideal solution.
You can create chat groups, add your team members, and start conversing. It also allows you to be creative by adding unique names for groups. And, from the drop-down menu, you can add members easily.
You can also edit the chat group and change the group’s name, or add or remove users from the group. And, you can delete or disable a chat group. Once the group is deleted, you will not be able to receive messages from that particular group.
Note: For Individual Chat and Group Chat, a message box will appear from where you can send your message and update your teammates.
