PIP GoldMine® Services

PIP provides a comprehensive array of GoldMine related services, from initial planning through follow-up project review, to ensure that your business/organization utilizes the GoldMine product(s) to its full potential. Our goal is to help you set realistic project goals and objectives and then provide whatever assistance you need to be sure that you reach them. As your solutions partner, PIP is committed to the success of your project.

Strategic Planning - Optimizing your Solution

During the Strategic Planning stage, PIP’s certified GoldMine professionals will work with you to establish the goals and objectives for your CRM implementation and identify its anticipated benefits. This information will be used later to measure project success.

Once we identify the project goals, we define the system requirements, and the issues and obstacles that need to be dealt with in order to produce an optimized solution and guarantee a successful project implementation. We determine if the fields/screens should be customized to capture the desired information. We recommend any third party or market specific applications that may assist in achieving the project goals. Next, we work with you to determine how the data needs to be reported. Finally, we define the data security (who should see what information) and the maintenance procedures. Generally several planning sessions are required to identify all of this information.

At the end of the Strategic Planning phase, you will receive a report that summarizes our conclusions and presents the following information:

  • Software to be purchased/upgraded, including any third party tools,
  • Draft design of any GoldMine customizations, including fields and reports,
  • Detailed implementation plan,
  • Advised security configurations, and
  • Project estimates for implementation and training.

This document then becomes the blueprint for the implementation of your CRM project. Let us tell you more about the importance of and need for Strategic Planning. 

Customization - Making GoldMine Truly Yours

PIP will meet with you to discuss the features of GoldMine you wish to use, how you want it to interact with the system, and how it will fit into your business processes. We will customize your system so that GoldMine looks like you want it. We can change field labels to reflect your terminology, advise you on values for lookup lists, design custom screens to track information specific to your business, install custom templates designed for your business, and write reports to fill your needs for specific information. We can help design a system that minimizes the data entry task, while minimizing the risk of entering data incorrectly.

Data Migration - Importing your Existing Data

Whether you are currently using another contact management system, have a custom application to track contact information, or are using Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or a simple text file to keep contact information, you will most likely want to transfer that information into your GoldMine system. PIP has experience transferring data from numerous applications and data formats, and if necessary, we can write custom scripts to bring your important contact-related information into GoldMine.

Data Integration - Linking to Other Databases

Very often businesses and organizations want to integrate their Customer Relationship Management system with other corporate database applications they are using, such as accounting software. This can provide your sales and marketing staff more complete customer information. PIP has the knowledge and experience to help you and will coordinate your project with other vendors when necessary.

Installation - System Roll-Out and Ramp-Up

Project Review - The Finishing Touches

Approximately 60 – 90 days after project implementation is complete, and periodically thereafter, we will help you assess your progress against your goals and objectives. The purpose of this review is to answer the questions “How are we doing?” and “Can we be doing better?” At this time, the focus is the big picture. We review usage and processes to determine if the system is meeting your goals. What goals have we hit and which ones have we missed? We help you define what course of action needs to be taken from here or what changes need to be made before proceeding. We help you determine whether other system or business process changes can further increase profitability. This is the point where you discuss and plan your next stage of the project.
