Here we are at the end of the Journey to CRM Success blog series. If you’ve made it through everything we’ve discussed throughout this series, you’ve probably recognized that the journey never really ends because there are always refinements and improvements to be made to how you use your CRM.
One success leads to another, so the journey continues and your business grows right along with it. Let’s look back at what you can achieve by leaving the chaos of “No CRM Land” and taking your team on the Journey to CRM Success…
Support for Important Business Goals
Undertaking the Journey to CRM Success provides companies with the capability to fulfill a driving need to improve their current situation and achieve important business objectives such as growth, profitability and increased efficiency.
Increasing Levels of Sophistication
CRM programs are designed to grow along with your company. They will meet your immediate needs including the essential functions of Contact Management, 360° Client Management, and Activity Management. As you become ready, they will facilitate advanced functions including Process Automation (through Templates, Checklists and Workflows), Sales Management, and Mass Communication.
Data Visibility, Accessibility, and Reporting
CRM gets your client data out of the chaos and disorganization of spreadsheets, Outlook, and people’s brains and moves you to a state of organization and transparency, which prepares you to run a more scalable, effective practice.
Shared access to data and the ability to monitor what is going on make it easier for your team to collaborate. Reporting functions enable you to extract and evaluate various combinations and views of this important client and prospect information. This arms the team with the greatest ability to focus their efforts on the activities that matter most.
CRM helps to ensure that no clients or commitments/tasks fall between the cracks without someone knowing it happened.
