Back in my old sales role I relied heavily on this little box that sat on my desk and held hundreds of cards with customer’s names and contact details on. I would always make a note of the companies I had been in contact with, who it was I spoke to, whether they’d requested not to be called again, who the best person to speak to was, best times to call, and any relevant details which could help me when I called them again in the future. Record cards for me where not just about the name and telephone number; they were a real life line and key to my hitting targets and making the ultimate sale.
In my post previous to that I’d also had a card index box sitting on my desk. However this time it wasn’t as an aid to meeting goals and making sales, it was as a way of me looking after my customers. With various accounts with different companies, it was difficult at times not to confuse each one from the other. In order to provide optimum service individually tailored to each company, it was vital to keep a record for each one. Record cards would state which person to contact depending on my query, accounts they held with us, codes and telephone numbers along with other pieces of information which would help to provide dedicated service to their needs.

A card Index system is a priceless tool in the office, but would also make an excellent aid in the home too. They’re so much easier to use than a telephone/address book, you simply lift the lid and flick through the easily visible cards pulling out the one that you require. Each card has plenty of room to store all the information you need, plus you can even use the reverse of the card. As opposed to a telephone address book; when a card becomes out of date, you simply purchase a cheap pack of refill cards, rather than having to buy an entirely new book and fill the whole thing out all over again!
