Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is the next key driver of enterprise success in Canada and around the world. Although the goal of business has remained the same over the years—namely, selling your product or service and keeping the customer after the exchange—the sophistication surrounding sales has changed dramatically. Today businesses have the opportunity to leverage sophisticated software that manages their past interaction with customers, linking them to the present and providing pathways for future business opportunity. CRM does that and more; by combining marketing with IT, CRM ensures that businesses leave no stone unturned in reaching out to clients. But before you implement CRM into your business, you should be aware that it requires an investment of time, money and staff buy-in. Before jumping feet first into CRM, be sure to seek out proper training for you and your staff so that the transition is smooth and the outcomes beneficial.
