Clients say it Best...

I purchased your program last month. I have to take the time to write and let you know what an amazing job you have done in putting this program together.

Every day I laugh thinking... this is beautiful...why didn't I do this sooner! It has inspired me to work harder, do a better job of managing my clients, and in finding new business. I look forward to opening this program each day.

So a BIG THANK YOU TO BIGCONTACTS for a job well done!!! Please pass this along to all that have put their hard work into developing this program.

The support at BigContacts is far superior to any other web service I have used, including SalesForce.com. Not only are they friendly and professional, their response time has been amazing.

  Overall, Big Contacts is the best solution I have found in many years. You can use it at a basic level or enhanced to meet your needs. Beginning users need not fear - it will be surprisingly easy to use. Advanced users can feel comfortable that it can meet your comprehensive requirements. The value in this product is excellent.

Big Contacts has made us better. I have been a user of Big Contacts coming up on two years (July 2008). And though it took real effort for me to break-away from a stand alone version of ACT, I'm glad I've made the move to a web-based CRM...

We love Big Contacts. Easy to use, economical and provides everything we need to schedule follow-ups and communicate with customers. Auto-pilot campaigns allow us to stay in touch with clients behind the scenes, and email templates provide me with a way to ensure my sales people are sending effective and professional communication in an incredibly time-efficient fashion. Before finding Big Contacts, we looked at virtually every contact management system we could find and had just about given up because we didn't like any of them. Our IT dept was going to have to build one in-house. Big Contacts is what we'd have built if we'd done it ourselves, only much better

New CRM Import Wizard makes it easy to add Contacts

  
  
  
  
  
  
BigContacts has always offered a free Import Wizard within our Web Based CRM Software, and this tool has served our customers well over the years - allowing over 10,000 small businesses to import their most important contact data. This tool is a key first step to a quick and productive start with our software. 

But, the import process is not always easy and we knew we could make it even better. 

One of the biggest challenges when importing a list of contacts is getting all of the fields in your spreadsheet to map to the right fields in your CRM Software. If you count all of the phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and any custom fields you may wish to import, your spreadsheet can easily contain up to 2 dozen columns that need to get mapped somewhere in this new system.

Well, we have just solved this challenge.  This Friday we realized a greatly improved Import Wizard that makes this process as easy as "connecting the dots" on a numbered puzzle. 

You will find this new Import tool in the same familiar location within our system, but with a much better experience the next time you need to import a list of contacts into BigContacts.

The big change you will notice is our new and very intuitive field mapping section that will appear right after you upload your spreadsheet.

For more information on how this new tool works, we have created a short video that will give you step-by-step instructions for succesfully importing your contacts.

We hope you enjoy this latest enhancement and as always...if you have any questions on this, we encourage you to start a live chat or submit a support ticket and one of our Customer Support Associates will be happy to help.

Massive improvement here. Now the path is so much easier to follow and very clear on those that don't match up. GREAT JOB!
