CRM is all about building relationships and driving growth within your company. The 2017 CRM Conference, that is taking place on May 4th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Harley-Davidson Museum, has a focus on Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics 365.
After all, those are the two solutions that we (Ledgeview Partners) specialize in and have the greatest resource of certified experts (and we have a lot of them) that we can tap into to educate business leaders, so it makes sense.
We also know that there are hundreds of options on the market and many organizations are at different points in the growth of their business and looking for educational resources beyond CRM.
This is why we are also hosting a number of ‘agnostic’ sessions that are applicable to organizations that are evaluating CRM, Marketing Automation or may even have a solution in place already (that is not Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics).
Sessions that are geared to help you prepare, execute and utilize the right tools to grow your business.
Here I want to spotlight 9 of these sessions that we feel are ‘must attend’:
Planning for CRM Success
A successful CRM implementation, upgrade or project hinges on detailed preparation. In this session we will discuss key factors in successfully planning for CRM Success. How to assemble your project team, avoiding project failures and pitfalls, best practices for designing and deploying CRM, building a successful user adoption program and achieving ROI.
Got CRM? Why you Need Marketing Automation Too
CRM systems transform sales through organization; marketing automation completes the picture by generating and nurturing leads from marketing qualified to sales qualified leads. In this session you will learn how these systems complement each other and why you need both.
Using Business Intelligence Tools to Extend CRM
CRM solutions like Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics provide us with access to an unlimited amount of information. In this session, we will examine how organizations of all sizes can use BI to boost productivity, gain sales and market intelligence and insights into consumer behavior and most importantly turn the data you have into actionable information.
The Digital Transformation of the Customer Experience
Take CRM beyond your internal users to create rich and robust experiences for your customers. CRM can provide great information to the sales team related to purchasing history, cross sell and up sell possibilities, and marketing interactions for customers and prospects. But how easy is it for customers to really do business with you? The next step in CRM is extending the CRM data by creating a rich online customer experience.

In this session, we will share with you a wide variety of ‘cool things’ that you may not even realize CRM could be used for. Get ready to have your mind blown!
