Implementing CRM Software
4 things to consider when implementing CRM software
Once you have selected a new CRM platform to implement into your business here are 4 factors to consider.
- People are the most important factor of successful CRM. From your sales staff, to your service department, to your invoice and collections, every employee effects your customers experience. Everyone needs to be onboard with the idea that your customers deserve the best experience you can provide in your industry. Engage and delight your customers, and they will be your biggest promoters.
- Business requires a carefully developed strategy to guide the enterprise. Your CRM needs the same planning and attention as your budget, product launch, sales training, and accounting. It is an integral element of your business, successful corporations have embraced this idea and spend big money on CRM software and implementation.
- Process is the most difficult part of CRM. You must create relationship building habits and follow them to the letter. Again, its not just you, but your entire organization that must buy in to the process. If one employee doesn't care about the process, you end up with the metaphorical "finger in the pickle jar".
- Technology is an important part of a CRM implementation, but it exists to support strategy and processes, not the other way around.
