Outlook CRM tool

Prophet 2004 brings customer relation-ship management (CRM) techniques to Microsoft Outlook. Unlike Act 6, GoldMine 6.5, and even Microsoft’s own Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2003, this plug-in works directly inside Outlook. Not only does this keep all contact info in one place, it helps your system’s performance by reducing the number of programs you have to open to do your work.

Installation places a Prophet folder within Outlook’s Personal Folders. Inside that Prophet folder, a Contact Manager subfolder lists existing Outlook contacts but lets you manage them in many more ways. You can send personalised e-mail to a group (with each recipient seeing only his or her own address) without opening Word to use the mail-merge function, and view in a single window all the e-mail and attachments sent by several different contacts. Prophet 2004’s Report Wizard makes it a breeze to create many types of custom reports based on your contact information. Opportunity Manager tracks potential sales leads, whether they are associated with your existing Outlook contacts or with new ones. Finally, the Prophet Administrator, accessed via a menu option in Contact Manager, lets you determine who has access to your opportunity data.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
