Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a tool but also a strategy that companies use to proactively manage the relationships with their customers and potential clients. In order to turn a prospect into a customer we don’t just need a solid business process, we need a reliable system to store and manage data.
A CRM system is crucial for any business because people’s limited ability to focus their attention and recall certain details about many different customers or events. Here is why a reliable CRM platform could significantly benefit the sales process for any organisation.
When you hear the term CRM in daily business life it is usually about the technical system that works with customer data and related processes. CRM systems are not just about the customer though. They also cover internal relationships with co-workers, external partners, service agents or suppliers. Depending on users’ needs we can determine and build different levels of access through different profiles and roles or share access on-demand.
