Work with the worlds best CRM through your Mobile or your Outlook email!


So You did not know that I also sell CRM-solutions? Well, yes off course I do! My aim is to help people and business work smarter and effectively to become more productive. So, off course I sell CRM solutions!

But not any CRM solution. I simply sell the best sales- and customer tool on the market – the solution that every professional sales rep and sales manager would simply love to get their hands on.

I sell Pipeliner CRM, which in my mind, and after 20 years of experience with many, many other “so-called CRM solutions” – are simply the worlds best work tool for good old sales reps that want to close orders and hunt for new prospects.

What I like about Pipeliner CRM? How much time do you have? I could go on for days and weeks about this. A few points here:

  • I love the Pipeliner CRM Web Clipper for Chrome. When I hunt for new business I use LinkedIn to find the perfect prospects for my kind of business. I hunt for CEO’s that want to increase their profit, I hunt for Sales Managers that want to close more business, I hunt for HR managers that want to make their people more productive and get more skill by sharing knowledge, I hunt for CFO’s that want more money in the bottom line!
  • I use the 30 DAY SALES MACHINE method to find the right leads and decision makers on LinkedIn. I use the Pipeliner CRM Web Clipper to get their profile info into Pipeliner CRM with a simple click!
  • I use Pipeliner CRM to send email and phone the prospects directly from the CRM solution – be it through the Pipeliner CRM desktop client, through the Pipeliner CRM Mobile client on my smart phone – or directly from my email – be it Outlook or Gmail with their Pipeliner CRM Add-In’s.

Social CRM drives the sales to closing!


Pipeliner CRM is on a mission to build a sales tool that seamlessly guides salespeople and gives them all the insights they need to make Opportunities out of Leads and Closed Deals out of Opportunities – which is why I’ve partnered with them!

Pipeliner-CRM-Elements-TeaserMy company, Brainworker AS, is an authorized Pipeliner CRM Strategic Consulting Partner for Scandinavia. That means we promote, sell, implement the solution and also train and coach their sales people.

Pipeliner recently announced Elements, a groundbreaking release from Pipeliner CRM, which features a radical new UI design, corporate logo and a one-of-a-kind feature that is the first to map real sales processes – called The Buying Center.

In my early days at IBM I had to join their eminent sales school which was more or less bootcamps where we trained 24/7. And I learned a lot of methods; Social Selling, Solution Selling, Selling Forensics, Provocative Selling, you name it – I was trained on it.

But one of the most important things I learned was how to build a Pain Chain and draw a map of who is who and who is influencing your proposal positively or negatively – and who is the real decison maker.

The Pain Chain is a map of how a problem somewhere in the company is the cause for another problem at another place in the company. Tracking this and make a map of it helped me get around in the company and each time a little higher in the decision chain.

And here is the clue with Pipeliner CRM’s Buying Centre – it freally helps you make that map and vizualise it for yourself and your sales reps.

Another great thing with this solution that I use in my prospecting and find extremely helpful – Pipeliner CRM tracks whatever happens around the customer in social media. Be it Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc. – at all times you are updated on the news on every prospect or customer you have – and always has something to talk about with the customer. Rule number one in all sales: Know your customer!

If you need a new CRM-solution – talk to me!


People who know me well knows that social collaboration and personal effectiveness is close to my heart. And what immediately gets into their minds are IBM Social Collaboration tools like good old IBM Domino and IBM Notes – an off course IBM Connections.

But, there is also a new technology that I have started to promote, evangelize, sell and implement – as well as giving advice and user education. And that is CRM!

In my earlier life as a consultant and writer I wrote quite a few books and article series about Sales, Marketing and Personal Productivity. And sales – even as a freelance writer – has always been part of me.

So when I started up my new consulting business in july this year, I needed a new CRM-solution to help me drive my prospecting and sales. And I found my new love – Pipeliner CRM.

I have used a lot of CRM-solutions through all my years in business. Only in IBM I have been through at least four different systems as they never seemed to be good enough for that big company.

All of the systems I have used have been boring, complex and time consuming. Stealing my active sales time.

Pipeliner CRM is totally different. It is the worlds most visual CRM-solution ever. It turns traditional CRM-thinking upside down. It is the first CRM-solution that also is social in the way that it tracks every move and every post your prospects and customers are making in the social media.

And the reports it generates! Wow! Forget about dead and boring spreadsheets! Reports in Pipeliner CRM are all my visual dreams coming alive!

Off course it’s a cloud solution. Off course there is an open API. Off course you may make your special sales processes they way you want them. Off course it’s also on handhelds.

And off course I have integrated it with my IBM Verse and my IBM Connections Cloud account.

You really should kick the tires! And here is the link to your 30 day free trial account for you and a handful of your sales reps.

Register today and give it a spin! You’ll be amazed!

Pipeliner CRM is so much more! It is, no doubt, the worlds most visual and simple to use sales tool. Sales Managers will especially love its way to empower the sales reps and the way it helps them move the cases forward to a closing. You may structure Pipeliner CRM to fit your special sales method and sales process, step by step. It improves the quality of the sales process and documents every step simply by drag & drop functionality.
