Customer Relations ship Management packages like
So before evaluating a CRM package, a company should determine four key points:
- What sort of IT infrastructure do they have in place now, and will they need to upgrade? For instance, if employees are running older versions of Outlook, they may not get the functionality they thought they would in a new package
- Determine their business processes. What do they want this package to do? Do they need to track sales leads, and if so, to what level of detail? Do they need to create support tickets for client problems? Do they need a knowledgeable base to store common solutions to client issues?
- Define who in the organization should have access to data, and what type of access they should have. Determine who needs remote access, and what sort of organization structure is needed for various departments.
- Determine what type of skill sets their staff has, and what type of training they will need
By defining all of these processes ahead of time, a business can properly evaluate what the best CRM solution is for their needs; this in turn will keep implementation and training costs down, and increase user adoptability.
