7 Reasons Why your Business needs custom software development

7 Reasons Why your Business needs custom software development

All businesses need Custom Software as they need productivity and profit to go parallel. Custom Softwares are built with a targeted objective in mind to scale company and increase revenue. The timely completion of tasks in the correct way and order daily makes the actual difference in business. All Founders and co-founders always strive to tighten the nut bolts of operations and other departments. The main focus is efficiency in each department so all business units need refining. No one software solution can provide you answer to all problems your business is facing. All they provide is generic and common solutions which may and may not work for your business.

In this query, many times business owners need to buy multiple software or subscriptions which becomes tedious. You need multiple stakeholders to manage multiple apps which decreases productivity too. The time you dedicated for meeting new clients or other important tasks got used in managing multiple applications. Also each app stores data in different servers as per each software creator. This can be unmanageable many times due to synchronization and compatibility issues. A custom software can do wonders to your business. It will become the one stop solution and solve all your company’s issues on the daily run.

Following is our list of 7 reasons reading which you may understand the importance of custom built software:

  1. Why use multiple softwares to perform one task?
    – When you start your day, you use Quickbooks for accounting/invoices. You may have Sage for sales/purchases, some other for shipping and tracking. All these affects your learning curve, software expenses, productivity and manageability index daily. This can be solved if you ditch them and go for custom software development. A tailored software solution which performs your team’s daily routine tasks is need of the hour.
  2.  Easy to Expand and Scale
    – When your team grows you dont want to increase your overhead. You want your entire workforce to be on the same page. How will that happen if all are diverted to seperate solutions to reach to common goals. Even training new employees on different softwares can be a big headache. This can be prevented if we have single solution for entire team with separate authentication and authorization. An accountant doesn’t need to see the marketing module and a purchase manager doesn’t need to see sales module. A company can easily grow as they have the highest productivity with single tailored solution. Learning curve and training costs go down to zero as colleagues can teach each other when needed. You can scale your business easily with this unlike offshelf solutions. Those can be used by startups when they don’t have routine operations but wont work when your company is 100+. So why not to invest it onetime and save money rather than to pay for licenses for 10 years and then migrate to a custom software.
  3. Why to pay monthly user-wise licenses and subscriptions
    – It is a one time cost you pay for a custom software. After that it is just minimal annual hosting and maintenance charges. Hosting and maintenance charges depends on client’s choice if he needs them or can host on private server. Imagine you buy 100 SAP licenses for your team. After that you call their team for training your employees. Imagine the cost and compare it with some single solution provider who can deploy your software to cloud. Now your team can access it from anywhere in the world giving you maximum productivity. Also no need for manual upgrades as your Cloud solution will automatically load the latest build.
  4.  Customize Logic Anytime.
    – When you have ordered for a custom built solution, you can send change request even after the product is launched and delivered. You can make any business logic change which you think is right for your business.
  5. Lower separate hardware costs.
    – When you are using third party softwares, you might have to pay extra for the hardware and the licenses of software to access them. But once you go for a custom solution, you make sure that all the features and functionalities related to hardward involvement are covered so that the extra cost is stopped for future.
  6.  Migrate from Paper work to Cloud.
    – Is there any paper still moving in your company from desks to desks? Are you still signing the legal and terms paper via paper ? Are you still using desktop app or spreadsheets where you print out and then send the papers for CEO’s sign ? Gone are the days when you had to manually manage all these chores which occupy 3-4 hours of your day. There are high chances that paper work and spreadsheets have human errors and you cant update them back. We made a mobile and tablet responsive enterprise system for Star-lo Electric. Before this they used to put in all the tasks done by labourers, field managers in paper. This included all of timesheets, tasks, projects, material inventory and reports. Imagine how we saved them a lot of hours each day by migrating them to our wonderful cloud system which can be accessed from anywhere and on any device. It took just 5 months for us to develop it.
  7.  Manage all your customer queries in one system
    – You make amends for healthy customer relations, but still you face complaints, escalations, poor surveys etc. You can make all of them in one place by going for a custom customer software. The software will make sure that it has all the social networks like twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc. where the customer has posted about your product or your company in terms of hashtags. You can also see which team and managers are working on each customer project and what is the current status of delivery. You can also have realtime customer chat or mail integration

    We always suggest our clients to first automate the efficient processes in their current business daily routine. Only after this is successful, go for automation of inefficient and problematic chores in business.

Boeing’s 737 Max Software Outsourcing to $9-an-Hour Engineers

Boeing’s 737 Max Software Outsourcing to $9-an-Hour Engineers

Software outsourcing to inexperienced or underpaid engineers can cause a monetary as well as human loss. It is yet surprising about how Boeing 737 Max Crisis took place. A big Chicago based planemaker like Boeing is famous for its narrow body design. It is still unknown how such famous Jet company can make basic software mistakes. It lead to 2 deadly crashes killing 346 people in Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines.

Senior engineers who are with Boeing for many years consider Software outsourcing maintenance to lower paid contractors as reason. The Max Software was developed at a time when Boeing laid off experienced developers and pushed suppliers to cut costs. Owing to this Boeing and subcontractors have relied more on temporary contractor developers at $9 an hour. The developers were expected to develop and test the software.

Boeing 737 Max Crisis Software Outsourcing to HCL

Software Outsourcing to College Graduates:

“In Boeing’s Seattle office, recent college graduates hired by Indian Software Company HCL Technologies Ltd. occupied many desk rows” – said Mark Rabin, an ex-Boeing employee who worked in flight test group supporting Max software. “All the HCL coders were designing as per Boeing specifications, but still it was a big risk and inefficient as compared to other experienced Boeing developers. It took long hours to go back and forth to rework on the code owing to the code not written properly”.

Boeing won many Indian orders with Indian military and commercial aircraft like SpiceJet Ltd. The reason being its collaboration with Indian Software companies. Till Jan 2017, Airbus ruled Indian skies and then Boeing changed the Indian aerospace scene.

Boeing Max’s Flight-Display Software outsourcing happened to HCL to develop and test it. Developers from another Indian company, Cyient Ltd., were outsourced software development for flight-test equipment.

Software Outsourcing for Costly Delay:

In Jan 2016, a HCL employee who was working on Max software wrote the following to summarize his work:
“Provided quick workaround to resolve production issue which resulted in not delaying flight test of 737-Max (delay in each flight test will cost very big amount for Boeing).” Though Boeing has said that it did not rely on engineers from HCL and Cyient for the MCAS(Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System), which has been linked to the Lion Air crash last October and the Ethiopian Airlines disaster in March.

The Chicago-based company also said it didn’t rely on either firm for another software issue disclosed after the crashes: a cockpit warning light that wasn’t working for most buyers. “Boeing has many decades of experience working with supplier/partners around the world. Our primary focus is on always ensuring that our products and services are safe, of the highest quality and comply with all applicable regulations.”

HCL also released its statement “It has a strong and long-standing business relationship with The Boeing Company, and we take pride in the work we do for all our customers. However, HCL does not comment on specific work we do for our customers. HCL is not associated with any ongoing issues with 737 Max.”

Downfall from cost cutting:

Recent simulator testing by the Federal Aviation Administration suggests that software issues on Boeing’s best-selling model run deeper. The company’s stock fell after the regulator found a further problem with a computer chip that experienced a lag in emergency response when it was overwhelmed with data.

Engineers who worked on the Max, which Boeing began developing eight years ago to match a rival Airbus plane, have complained of pressure from managers to limit changes that might need extra time or cost.

“Boeing was doing all kinds of things, everything you can imagine, to reduce cost, including moving work from Puget Sound, because we’d become very expensive here,” said Rick Ludtke, a former Boeing flight controls engineer laid off in 2017. “All that’s very understandable if you think of it from a business perspective. Slowly over time it appears that’s eroded the ability for Puget Sound designers to design.”

Rabin, the ex-Boeing software engineer, remembered one manager saying at a meeting that Boeing didn’t need senior engineers because its products were mature. “I was shocked that in a room full of a couple hundred mostly senior engineers we were being told that we weren’t needed,” said Rabin, who was laid off in 2015.

Sales from India

The typical Boeing plane has millions of parts and lines of code. Boeing has long turned over large portions of the work to contractors who follow its detailed design blueprints. Starting with the 787 Dreamliner, launched in 2004, it increased profits by instead providing high-level specifications. Then they asked contractors to design more parts on their own. The thinking was “they’re the experts, you see, and they will take care of all of this stuff for us,” said Frank McCormick. Frank was an ex-Boeing flight-controls software engineer who later worked as a consultant to regulators and manufacturers. “This was just nonsense.”

Sales are another reason to send the work overseas. In 2005, Boeing promised to invest $1.7 billion in Indian companies if they get 11$ billion order from Air India. That was a boon for HCL and other software developers from India, such as Cyient. Their engineers were widely hired in computer-services industries but not yet experienced in aerospace.

Rockwell Collins, which makes cockpit electronics, had been among the first aerospace companies to outsource significant work in India. In 2000 HCL began testing software for the Iowa-based company. By 2010, HCL employed 400+ people at design, development and verification centers for Rockwell Collins in Chennai and Bangalore.

That same year, Boeing opened a “center of excellence” with HCL in Chennai. They wanted to partner “to create software critical for flight test”. In 2011, Boeing included Cyient to a list of its “contractors of the year”. Cyient won it for design, stress analysis and software engineering on 787 and 747-8 at their Hyderabad center.

Mistakes of outsourcing to Russia:

The Boeing rival also relied somehow on offshore software outsourcing. In addition to supporting sales, the planemakers say global design teams add efficiency as they work 24/7. But outsourcing has long been a pain point for many Boeing engineers. They fear job losses and admit it has led to miscommunications and bugs.

Boeing built a design center in Moscow. At a meeting with chief Boeing 787 engineer Cynthia Cole in 2008, she complained about re-sending drawings to Russia team. She had to send drawings 18 times before they understood the importance of smoke detectors. Detectors need to be connected to the electrical system.

Price the strong attraction :

Indian Engineers make 9-10$ an hour compared to 40 $ per hour of H1b Visa in US. HCL currently has 18000 employees in US and 15000 in Europe and has deep expertise in computing. HCL won the contract on basis of a strong R&D background as said by Sukamal Banerjee, HCL VP.

As the sources say The Max was an update of a 50-year-old design. They wanted the changes to be limited enough that Boeing could produce the new planes faster. Only they needed would be a few changes for either the assembly line or airlines. Rockwell Collins hired HCL and Cyient. Cyient engineers used to do the drawings and provide US team by each morning. They faced challenges still they delivered it, but then could have done better.

The issue in the flight crashes was due to MCAS system pushing planes into uncontrollable dives . All this was due to bad data from a single sensor. Proper testing was not done in this case which made 346 people lose their lives.

Software outsourcing should be done with quality in mind. Cost cutting upto certain level is fine, but if there are major casualties due to lack of experience. It is a big failure on long term businesses as well as trust.

Boeing faced a $5.6 billion fall in revenue for the 2 quarter of 2019 due to max crisis.

6 Big UX goofs Enterprise Software teams make

When we start using an enterprise application like LinkedIn, JIRA, Trello etc. we look more into the design. The UI design attracts us as its been made considering the UI trends of that year. But when we keep using the application more and more, we start getting UX goofs. User experience is a big factor which failed Orkut but made Facebook a bigger winner. User Experience was one of the deciding factor for Google+ never achieving what Facebook could.

UX Goofs - Ncoresoft

Capterra is a big platform which reviews a lot of enterprise applications publicly. Read the public Reviews of the most popular Enterprise Systems in 2019 only on Capterra. Top applications like Microsoft Dynamics, Deltek Vision, NetSuite, Bitrix24 have great following of buyers which the reviews show. 3 years back no one emphasized on User experience. But thanks to these Google play stores, apple play stores, and review sites like Capterra the mindset has changed. Enterprise companies never gave priority to UX goofs.

Mobile Effect

With the increase in mobile users, the demand for mobility solutions have increased. Today all kind of users be it employees or employers want everything with the touch of a finger. All corporates and tech teams are already using Mails, Skype, Slack, Google, Excel, etc. on their mobiles. Most office related work is done on mobile today, which has only become possible due to better Mobile experience. As per the future trends, 90% of corporate enterprise will have atleast one mobile solution in coming 5 years.

Consumer vs Enterprise Apps

Consumer applications like Facebook and Instagram are raising the bar in UI and UX. This makes it a must for Enterprise applications to upgrade as employees use for most part of day. Employees spend 1 hr on consumer apps and 7 hrs on enterprise apps daily on an average. If the app has poor UI and takes long to navigate, the employee productivity will be very less. The app needs to be user friendly and do more in less number of clicks. We should not forget that employees are smart consumers of 2019. They already use apps like Uber, Yelp, YouTube etc. daily. Thereby they also expect their enterprise softwares to be of consumer-app level modern.

Following are mistakes which App developers and Clients do :

  1. Design with Buyer in Mind and not the End-User.

    Every product needs to have proper analysis with regards to who are the end-users, What is their behaviour and what are their use-cases going to be. All the requirements and scope of work are written by the IT team which developers have to follow. The only case where buyer becomes the user is the admin panel.
    Every industry has its own end user rules when it comes to usability. This includes behaviour steps, navigation, the terminology they use, the shortcuts they want differing region and company-wise. The development team and client should consider all of this before starting development. You cant follow the usability of an accounting system for a CRM. The only way you can do it the right way is have appropriate due diligence with existing end-users. You can also follow state of art industry specific case studies available in the market.

  2. Ignoring the Legacy Software.

    For companies looking to migrate their old app to a new one, we cant ignore existing system. The customer already knows what their existing system lacks in terms of functionalities, design or business logic. So before we try to solve their new problems, we shouldn’t ignore the existing flow, validation of legacy system. We should also consider business logic, ease of use like “Use Tab to shift focus between fields”. The developer should know that the end-users or employees are used to a certain pattern or behaviour. If they have habit of using “Ctrl + P” to print a report, we cannot force them to use button only.

    Developers should also know what modules employees or end-users use maximum and try not to change the flow. We can only try to make it better rather than discomforting the end-users with a big learning curve. We always have to try to reduce learning curve and trainings and hence increase productivity. Therefore more functionalities and less training also guarantees a lot of money saving.

  3. Innovate only what is required and important.

    We have two cases one where employees lack enthusiasm to upgrade UI/UX of the app. They don’t have a target to sell so don’t focus on UI and UX goofs regularly. Similarly we have the contracted developers who wish to redesign the entire app. Nifty alerts, more shortcuts, fancy left menus, popup design can all look great. But we also need to care about the end-user’s standard practices. Like always use red color for Delete, orange for warning  and green for success. As Apple emphasizes on, “Don’t use system-defined buttons and icons to mean something else.”

  4. Avoiding UI aesthetics and increasing UX goofs

    We need to focus equally on to typography, font-sizes, color-combination, animations, button placement. If a company is spending again then it is expecting upgrade in all terms. It is looking for performance, user friendliness and latest design. Try this app Hotjar , it tells you where the end-users clicked the most or used which modules maximum.

  5. Disregarding the importance of Responsiveness

    Renovating an app needs to consider all the devices which can make work easy. Tablets, PDAs, or mobiles can contribute greatly if considered with respect to different user roles. You don’t need to show all modules to a laymen or clerk. That way he can do his tasks even from his iPhone or iPad in emergency or exceptional cases. The new software should be adaptable without relying only on desktop. Also consider on different browsers like Chrome, Firefox or Edge along with Safari.

     

  6. Use Negative Feedback from failure of Other Systems

    Developers also have to take inspiration from other’s feedback and debacles. Like Thomas Alva Edison wrote on 1000 ways of not to make a bulb. We can take examples of failed case studies of famous systems and make use-cases around it.The Only way a successful migration of legacy software can take place is by fruitful collaboration. A developer from MIT or UX designer from apple don’t guarantee the best UX for a healthcare system. They also need to know the business logic involved which can only happen when they collaborate with regular sprints. You can also follow agile lifecycle and scrum as cherry on the cake to avoid all UI and UX goofs.

Facebook New Design Launch

Facebook New Design promotes more private communications . This Tuesday the 30th of April’19, Facebook announced its New Design for their desktop and mobile apps. In this revision, they have focused on new features to promote group-based communications instead of Main Feed. Till now people used to publicly post status and messages.

 

Facebook New Design Redesign

Facebook’s Redesign

 

With the new changes users would now message and share news with one another more easily. Therefore they can also share other items with private group member on the site.

F8 Announcement

The Company announced that Mark Zuckerberg is working to integrate and encrypt Facebook’s different messaging services including WhatsApp and Messenger. Facebook also plans to continue giving importance to its Stories product, which allows people to post 24 hour updates. These stories vanish after 24 hours. They finally bid adieu to their large Blue theme and unveiled a minimalistic great white look for FB.

The motto of these new features is to make Facebook a more trustworthy platform, said Mr. Zuckerberg. He added more in the interview “Everywhere you can see and connect with friends, you’ll be able to see and connect with groups; it’s going to be woven into the fabric of Facebook.”

The recent privacy scandals have forced the social network company to change some of their policies, features from ground zero. This redesign shows us the initial effects. Most Importantly Facebook is facing negative criticism for the last 3 years for its incapability in providing privacy to user information. The main damage was also due to the image they created by spreading fake news, explicit content and even interfering elections. Influencing Political Dynamics of different countries has brought Facebook in bad limelight. Worse was how they got tangled into getting fined for $5 Billion from Federal Trade Commission for privacy violations. This was the highest any Technology company got fined in United States.

Ground Story

Facebook users are shifting their social media behaviour. Today online communications have got a boost by private messaging, groups and stories. Mr. Zuckerberg said. “In 2019, we expect the amount of Stories that are shared to outnumber the amount of Feed posts that are shared.” Facebook New Design is going to push multiple product updates in all of the 4 platforms periodically. This upgrade doubts How Facebook will earn from its private communications. FB generates most of it’s $56 Billion revenue by targeting advertisements out of public posts. The challenge in this directions are major as the stakes are high.

Facebook has a Groups tab to its main mobile app and desktop menus, for example. Recommendations for groups will pop up in various areas of the app insisting users to join. Messages for close friends and family have a separate section inside Messenger. Any user would find it hard to ignore a group prompt insisting him or her to join a group chat.

They have also launched their dating feature for Canada and Thailand, not yet for USA, but soon it will happen. Instagram launched new digital shopping and ecommerce features.

Zuckerberg emphasizes about their company’s automated systems. They can detect illicit activities — like examining traffic patterns — without scanning the inside content of private messages.

“There’s still a lot to do” were Zuckerberg’s final words in the conference. Lets see where Facebook takes us in Future.

What Accenture did wrong with Hertz Car Rental ?

Hertz Car Rental Firm from Florida, USA sued Accenture for 32 Million $ legal suit for a massive web design failure.
Accenture doesnt need an introduction in Software consulting, management and implementation. It is 1 of the top 10 companies in Software Outsourcing and Consulting industry. But that doesnt make it God. It is human and can cause errors.
We would be talking about what it did wrong. Then we will talk about what it should have done to prevent it.
Hertz hired Accenture in August 2016 to help redesign its existing website and mobile apps. But the firm was unable or unwilling to meet the basic requirements of the said contract. It wasnt able to achieve a single deadline due to which Hertz fired Accenture in May 2018. Till this time the car rental firm had paid $32 million for its services. Hertz is now asking the giant management consulting firm to pay back the entire amount. It also has asked for more cost to repair the project.

Hertz-Sue-Accenture-Ncoresoft-Report

Flashback of Hertz Car Rental Project

The Rental Bigshot started planning for digital transformation almost 3 years ago. Their intention was to improve their customer experience for all it’s rental brands globally. They had laid down list of all goals and a complete roadmap to achieve. After this they handover all documents and information to Accenture in August 2016.

It started with Accenture missing the 1st deadline when the new site was going live for first time. This was December 2017 then came the postponed date January 2018 which  also missed. It also missed August 2018 as third deadline and was finally removed from the project.

Accenture still believes that the lawsuit by Hertz is baseless.

The worst part was that Accenture started charging for the delays. The lawsuit already states that

“Accenture promised that Hertz would not be responsible for the added cost associated with the delays in go-live, but Accenture later sought to charge Hertz for those costs.”

Missing Goals

According to Hertz goals, they wanted a uniform web structure for all its existing global rental brands. They included global and economy brands like Dollar and Thrifty . But Accenture built site only for Hertz North America. Even Hertz Europe was excluded from digital upgrade. Hertz reported this debacle and has also stated in the lawsuit

“Accenture’s project
leader replied that ‘we felt that creating a generic base and extending Hertz from that would have been less useful and less productive.”

Who in the world would go against code reusability and creating a common framework. Isn’t that laughable? Accenture also didn’t make site responsive for tablet even after promising to complete for all desktops, mobile and tablets. Shouldn’t they adapt to different screen sizes to make it reader-friendly across different devices. We at Ncoresoft built a lot of enterprise level softwares successfully where client asks for responsiveness across different devices. On complaining Accenture agreed to make it tablet-responsive, but only if Hertz paid them hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Accenture couldnt even get the Visual Style Guide right. The Car rental firm specifically requested a style guide that was in a non-PDF format. They wanted a non-PDF format which they could update over time. But the Tech firm continued to produce guides that were PDFs, according to Hertz. The management company eventually said it would make the style guide in a non-PDF format, but only if it got paid hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Bad Code Delivery

The Management Firm even could not deliver reliable and working code. Hertz assessed the code Accenture delivered with its new replacement. Accenture’s code was so badly written that the new firm could not resolve so many issues. They finally had to discard the entire old code and start over.

The firm even convinced Hertz Car Rental to buy a license for RAPID, a program to streamline the development. They wanted to develop a new content management system. However, after buying the license, Accenture admitted to Hertz that it did not know how to use RAPID.

Currently Hertz is demanding a serious jury trial and needs repayment for all it spent. It wants a pay back for all costs during Accenture’s period of service as well as future web design costs. Hertz claims that is working very closely with the Accenture replacement and will be rolling new platforms shortly.

Lead Automation for Texas Used Cars | Case Study

Lead Automation is the talk of town since last 4 years. Let me show you a case study we had recently and how did we overcome the challenge.

What is Lead Automation?

Lead Automation is a process of converting Leads out of marketing channels setup by the business. We can drive more sales by automating sales funnel. You cant limit channels by which your leads get generate. We have to be open and allow lead generation happening omnichannel.

Lead marketing automation Ncoresoft

Why is Lead Automation trending ?

Leads drives every business solely. All businesses have to make sure they have plenty leads in pipeline. The more leads the more chances of conversion. Imagine your business has good market validation but you are missing on the right conversions. The main reason is you have not set pairing between your lead channels and your sales representative’s CRM. This might cause a lot of draining of useful leads. Leads lost means business lost. You cant afford to lose business to your competitors. If that happens that might hit your brand value to the bottom.
Today Brands are spending maximum to stay in the business by running multiple social channels. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube are helping all the brands in driving customer leads from all directions.
Useful metric for Lead Automation Ncoresoft
HubSpot is one of the leaders when it comes to lead and marketing automation. What if you get daily 400 emails of leads along with 500 other mails. Would you go and read each mail one by one? Then forward that mail to the sales representative to do a follow up. That’s crazy and monotonous right ?

How Ncoresoft helped the Texas Used Car business?

Texas Used Cars is a big name in used cars industries in San Antonio, Texas. Still they were using an old CRM since long. Every day their employees had to go through 1000 emails to find out the right leads. This was a manual process and monotonous. The employees used to waste a lot of leads every day. By the time the employees read 100 mails the day would get over and the prospect would move to their competitors. What a waste for a company which has 10000 cars in inventory. Going through this daily and not meeting Sales targets each month was disturbing. Then they met a Digital agency to find out if they could get a customized software that could do the filtering of leads and send it to their respective sales representatives. The Digital agency wasted no time and send us their requirement.

Marketing tools Ncoresoft

Ncoresoft having experience of 10 years in making custom softwares took the challenge and delivered the project in a month. Can you believe it? That is how Ncoresoft Technologies work. We know which technology, software architecture, tools to choose, and get things done.

What Ncoresoft did new in lead automation?

We started connecting the dots by analysing their requirement. Using AWS, C# and make a console application was our plan. We would install that as a windows service on their server. Now came the part of linking their mail box with AWS S3 bucket using SMTP. Now we made different folders to separate read and unread mails. All the mails get read one by one automatically and fall in the unread folder. So in case the server went down we didn’t had to start filtering of mails again. We could always start from the unread mails folder.

The mail reading process schedules to run recurring at every 5 mins. Our backend system tries to read mails on the basis of keywords like Used car, buy , sell, agency name etc. If our condition matches we modify that mail as per our system and send it to the respective sales rep. Every day this process repeats and eradicates the manual intervention completely.

Ncoresoft Lead Automation

Automate filtering of mails is the only saviour. Using it we can move prospects further down the sales funnel and generate more qualified leads. Choose from different keywords in the filter, dates, objective and targeted email or CRM. Then choose from different conditions to fetch right emails from right leads at the right time.
