Access this screen by selecting Tool #312: Create Tracker Notes/Leads from File.

One of the most powerful features of the CU*BASE Telemarketing Leads and Follow-ups system is that it can be used as part of a comprehensive marketing or promotional campaign, to track and follow up with member responses. In order to accomplish this, CU*BASE can automatically generate a batch of telemarketing trackers using a list of memberships in a database file. This database file can be created from the same Query used to define the mailing list for the original promotion.

Additionally, this feature isn’t just for sales leads, but also for making a batch of notes for any reason.  Use this feature to identify members with specific notes in their Tracker records for auditing and research purposes.  For example, you might use this feature to record that you have had a communication with a group of clients.  In this case you would create a file containing these members, use a Tracker Type other than ST and use the Tracker Text area to define your search.  Once the process is run, the members in the file will have a Tracker conversation with the text appended to their Auditing Tracker or other Tracker, as selected.

Step 1 is to prepare the database file. Refer to the Sales Tracker booklet for details on this step.

Step 2 is to use this screen to generate the Tracker records. Remember that all trackers will be attached to the base share (-000) account suffix automatically. Complete all fields (described below) and use Enter to generate the trackers.

Press Enter to move to the confirmation screen, which will list the number of records in the file. Press Enter to generate the Tracker records.

Press Enter or use F5-Create Trackers to create the Trackers. Once you have created the Trackers, a message will appear at the bottom of the screen showing how many tracker records were created. Be sure to verify this number against the total number of records from the database you created earlier. (Remember that a minor discrepancy might exist if any memberships were closed between the time the database was created and trackers were generated.) Additionally a report listing the Tracker records that were generated is printed.

Field Descriptions

Field Name

Description

Use accounts from database file name

Enter the database file name as stored in your QUERYxx library. Refer to the Sales Tracker booklet for instructions on creating this file.

For Next Suggested Product, enter the database file name as stored in your QUERYxx library that you created for this Next Suggested Product promotion. Refer to the booklet Cross Selling Credit Union Services and Next Suggested Product.

Create as tracker type

Enter the Tracker Type to be created. This type must be configured to display in the Sales Tracker system if used for Sales Tracker and Cross Sales. If used for the Notes feature, then any configured Tracker Type can be used.

  •  NOTE: Tracker Type ST is required for use in conjunction with the Cross Sales tool.

SEE ALSO: Configuring Tracker Types

For Next Suggested Product, enter the Tracker Type ST. Refer to the booklet Cross Selling Credit Union Services and Next Suggested Product.

Append to existing tracker

When this checkbox is selected (the default) the Tracker generated will append itself to the existing Tracker of the same type as another conversation. For example, a new ST tracker will append to the existing ST tracker. It is recommended that you leave this checked.

If this option is unchecked, the system will create new Trackers for members, even if they already have one of that type, and regardless of what the "Allow multiple trackers of this type per membership" configuration is set to in Tool #277 Configure Tracker Types.

For Next Suggested Product, leave this field checked. Refer to the booklet Cross Selling Credit Union Services and Next Suggested Product.

Create as memo type

Enter the Memo Type to be assigned to the conversation note that will be created when the new Tracker record is created. Click the lookup button images\magnifyingglasslookup_shg.gif to see a list of your credit union's configured codes.

Tracker key word

It is not recommended that you enter anything but an existing Tracker Type name here.  Entering a different name will generate an entirely new Tracker.

  • Warning If you enter a Tracker Key word that is different from an existing Tracker Type, you will create new Tracker. This will not, for example, be appended to the member’s Sales Tracker. It is recommended that you enter Sales Tracker here.  

  • Or with the Notes feature, use an already configured Tracker Type, such as Audit Tracker.

  • For Next Suggested Product, enter Sales Tracker in this field. Refer to the booklet Cross Selling Credit Union Services and Next Suggested Product.

Tracker follow-up date

Enter the follow-up date to be assigned to each tracker.

  • For example, if a direct mailing was sent with your March quarterly statements, you may wish to follow up starting sometime in mid-April after statements have been received.

  •  This date is required, but not used by the Next Suggested Product feature. Enter a date in the future. However, be sure to coordinate this with employees using the Sales Tracker feature, since these Trackers will show when using the Work Sales Tracker feature.

Assign telemarketer ID

Enter the Employee ID that should be assigned to follow-up with these trackers. Remember that these trackers will not only appear in the Sales Tracker screen, but also within that employee's normal member follow-up trackers.

This field is required but not used by the Next Suggested Product feature. Refer to the booklet Cross Selling Credit Union Services and Next Suggested Product.

Tracker text

Enter up to five lines of text for the tracker itself.

  • If using the Cross Sales or Sales Tracker feature, this is the best way to provide a “script” for the member service representatives that will be following up on the tracker. Include information such as what mailing was sent and when, where a sample can be found, and the telemarketer should ask for during the member contact.

  • If this screen is used to find members with specific notes on their Trackers, enter that information in the field provided.

Assign cross sales need group

Corp ID

Assign cross sales task

Use these fields to “link” these trackers to a task on your Cross Sales Task List. Enter the Need Group, Corporation and Task number that will be used to track the status of this tracker. (Click the help button images\magnifyingglasslookup_shg.gif to see a list of your credit union's configured codes.)

Enter 1 or your Corp ID, if appropriate.

For example, if you are generating trackers as a way to follow up on a direct mail or statement insert campaign, you would also create a cross sales task such as “Checking Acct Promo follow-up” and assign that task's need group and task number to these trackers. As the telemarketer follows up with the member, the Cross Sales system would be used to track the member's response.
