What is My Customers?
My Customers is a feature that enables you to track, organize and communicate with
your customers. My Customers give you visibility into information about your customers
that you may use to analyze and build effective customer marketing programs.
The main view is a list of all your customers (except
the ones you've placed on your Blocked list) and all the important information you would want to know about them, such as
number of calls, mails (sent and received), recorded calls, lifetime
spend with you, last contact date, contact type and which customer list you put them in. You can assign
them to a list from this page, find out more detailed history, send mail, and much more. The key
benefit of this feature include:
- Customers who are new to you in the last 30 days will be flagged as "new" in red next to
the member name.
- Red flag indicators signifying missed calls; these can be removed by clicking the icon.
- Mail communications with customers are tracked separately by those that were
"sent" versus "received" per customer.
- The last contact date along with the contact type per customer will be displayed, and we've added
a complete list of contact types, such as call rec'd, mail sold, recorded
call, tried callback, and so on.
- We've added the capability to adjust the amount of customer records you're viewing per page
(10, 20, 30, 40, 50) along with pagination functionality, giving you the ability to see where you are in My
- On customer contact history pages, we've given "Offers" their own section. You now can easily view the number
and value of offers you've sent to that customer.
