How does it connect or integrate to my CRM?
At this time Boxxstep BRM for complex sales opportunities does not offer connection or integration with CRM solutions. However it is in our short term plans to provide integration into some of the main CRM solutions. Obviously with over 200 CRM options available it will never be possible to do this for most or all of them.
Boxxstep is an invaluable service even when used as a standalone application.
CRM focuses on contact information and opportunity numbers, whereas Boxxstep focuses on relationships and opportunity planning. Consequently the two complement each other beautifully, even when they are not integrated.
Can I import data from my CRM?
We want to make using Boxxstep as easy as possible for you, to that end you will not have to re-enter the same data you’ve already inputted into your CRM solution. Data duplication is kept to minimum due to Boxxstep BRM serving a different purpose to your CRM.

Just click on your photo or initials in the top left corner and then select ‘Import Data’ followed by ‘Upload file’. Boxxstep will then take the data it needs to populate our fields from the file.
As a business subscriber how do I allocate and manage our licenses?
Boxxstep Business users will receive an allocation of individual licenses with their subscription.
You will be able to use one of our Business management tools to add or remove users to Boxxstep.
Adding a new user is as simple as adding their email address, they will then be automatically notified and the Boxxstep on-boarding process will begin. Should you have members of staff who leave or no longer require access to Boxxstep, then it is equally as simple to remove them from your subscription allocation.
What happens when I close an ‘Opportunity’ is my information saved?
Information you capture about a company opportunity and their buyer team is valuable and could be required in the future.
