Posted on: October 8, 2015 | By: Craig Thompson | Microsoft Dynamics CRM
We all know the hype about CRM (customer relationship management) systems now a days, but is a CRM system something your business should truly invest in? Here are the top reasons why your business needs CRM.
Centralize Your Business – Folders full of e-mails and calendars full of invites, all from different co-workers in your organization. You forward messages, CC co-workers and set up conference calls, communicating in multiple ways throughout the workplace. With so much communication, information is bound to get lost. With CRM you can allow for information to display in one centralized database, allowing all employees to be in the know with no information lost.
Track your progress – With CRM, built-in metrics will allow you to see what tactics are working and which tactics are not.This will allow you to modify the bad and push forward with the good.
Never lose your information – You may have years of important client notes and information piled into notebooks and laptops – yet, laptops break down and notebooks can become lost. With CRM all information is saved on-premise or in the cloud, allowing your company to never lose important client data.
You can’t remember everything – You remember your password for dozens of websites, you remember your co-workers birthday and their favorite type of cake – you are a super human! Yet, even someone with the best memory can’t possibly remember hundreds, possibly thousands, of clients. Not only must you remember clients, but you also must remember specific events and tasks associated to each individual one. With CRM you have a database full of information regarding clients, important events, marketing schedules and more. This way you can give your brain a break!
