Integrating CRM to Practice Management and Client Portal 

Due to the nature of the licensing and permissions, firm operations are typically separated into different applications:

  • • CRM: Salesforce, Hubspot, Insightly, etc…
  • • Practice Management: CCH Axcess, Practice CS, BQE, etc…
  • • Client Portal: Sharefile, box, Sync, etc…

On the other hand, certain specific information should be shared and be consistent among the systems. For example, active client list. In this demo, we demonstrate how our sync solution can help synchronize the client information from CRM (Jotform) to Practice Management (CCH Axcess) to Client Portal (Sharefile) software.

 

Technology: Jotform (in lieu of CRM system), SQL Database, Practice CS, Outlook, Sharefile

Use Case: Automate the client onboarding process, synchronizing client information across different systems

Value: Automate data entry, track prospect engagement, and measure business development ROI
