Did your boss just announce a company-wide CRM implementation? Did they mention it during a meeting? Did they ask you to do some research on its basics, value, and benefits?
If you were left scratching your head, don’t fret! You’re not the only one.
CRM may seem overwhelming at first, but once you understand what’s it’s made up of, what’s possible once you implement and use it, and what it’s benefits are, you will triumph over any lingering technological fears you may have.
CRM means “Customer Relationship Management” and identifies technology that helps you manage your internal and external relationships with vendors, customers, prospects, suppliers, competitors, etc. CRM is much broader than it used to be when it first hit the market.
It has evolved massively over the years to help you respond to modern consumer and business demands. Relationship management is just the start of what current leading CRM technology, like Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce, offers its customers.
CRM may encompass any or all of the following features and benefits, among many others:
Data & Analytics
Personalization & Promotions
Transformative Business Growth
