In this article we are going to break down the three loan distribution avenues you now have with BNTouch. While also highlighting the new Lead Bucket and how it offers you a whole new way to distribute leads to your team.
You can manually assign every lead that comes in to specific members on your team. You can do so by clicking on an individual record by name and going into the “Contact Info” tab of that record. This is a great distribution strategy for someone who wants to have full control over the lead flow in their organization. This tactic can also be used to re-assign leads and change them from one teammate to another.
You can use Automatic Distribution to set parameters based on your specific teammates needs and abilities, and let the system automatically distribute leads for you. Automatic Distribution can be setup from the “Options” tab within the CRM. This distribution strategy works really well for website or advertising leads that you just want to divvy up amongst your team equally in a round robin style. But it also is customizable enough to where more leads can be given to higher performing employees than those that are lower performing, in training or even part-time.
The Lead Bucket
You can now set aside specific leads in your CRM for your team to manually assign to themselves. The lead bucket can be activated on your account by anyone one our support team. This distribution strategy works really well if you have a list or subset of leads that you want your team to be able to self assign. For example if you had a list of 500 leads that you just sent a mailer to, you’d want to place those leads into the Lead Bucket. As your mailer leads begin to call in you can have whichever team member that answers their call go into the bucket and assign that lead to them self. Thus ensuring that they’re following up with leads that they’ve already spoken to and are familiar with.
