CRM stands for customer relationship management. It's a category of integrated, data-driven software solutions that improve how you interact and do business with your customers. CRM systems help you manage and maintain customer relationships, track sales leads, marketing, and pipeline, and deliver actionable data
Why implement a CRM solution?
CRM solutions increase your profitability by streamlining administrative processes in your sales, marketing, and service divisions, and letting you focus on building and maintaining the customer relationships that matter. A strong CRM solution is a multifaceted platform where everything crucial to developing, improving, and retaining your customer relationships is stored. Without the support of an integrated CRM solution, you may miss growth opportunities and lose revenue because youâ€™re not optimizing your operating processes or making the most of your customer relationships or sales leads.
Imagine misplacing customer contact information, only to learn that your delay resulted in losing your client to a competitor. Or, picture your top two salespeople pursuing the same prospect, resulting in an annoyed potential customer and some unfriendly, in-house competition. Without a centralized and automated CRM system, your people can lose track of customer interactions and miss business opportunities.
IDENTIFY AND CATEGORISE LEADS.
A CRM system can help you identify and add new leads easily and quickly, and categorise them accurately. By focusing on the right leads, sales can prioritise the opportunities that will close deals, and marketing can identify leads that need more nurturing and prime them to become quality leads.
INCREASE REFERRALS FROM EXISTING CUSTOMERS.
By understanding your customers better, cross-selling and upselling opportunities become clear â€” giving you the chance to win new business from existing customers. With better visibility, youâ€™ll also be able to keep your customers happy with better service. Happy customers are likely to become repeat customers, and repeat customers spend more â€” up to 33% more according to some studies.
OFFER BETTER CUSTOMER SUPPORT.
Today's customers expect fast, personalized support, at any time of day or night. A CRM system can help you provide the high-quality service that customers are looking for. Your agents can quickly see what products customers have ordered, and they can get a record of every interaction so they can give customers the answers they need, fast.
