·          Conveniently located on each of the Extensions forms to save time and eliminate clicking around to find the functions you need.  Most features and functions are only one or two clicks away.

·          The layout and features of each of the “CRM Functions” tabs on each of the different Extensions forms are identical to reduce the learning curve, simplify “CRM” type tasks and speed up the usage of the CRM system (convenience and speed!).
