How to manage customers and contacts with KS CRM 2013 free customer relationship management software
First thing that you need to do is connect to the SQL server that you presumably have running. Select server name and database down below and click OK. If you don’t have SQL server running, free version can be downloaded from Microsoft pages.
Add contacts by selecting Contacts from the bottom left menu, and then filling out the new customer info. Use tabs, which are available underneath the Details area to switch between address, shipping, billing, company and so on customer info pages.
You do the same thing when it comes to other modules, like for example appointments, select Appointments, and then simply start filling out meetings that you have scheduled.
KS CRM 2013 is one of the more interesting customer management software that we’ve tested. It has a lot to offer, but at the same time it’s not very big or demanding when it comes to resource usage. If you don’t count the MS-SQL server that you need to have up and running, KS CRM 2013 will set you back only around 2MB, which is how much the client app is. In either case give it a try and see how it goes.
