7 Key Benefits for C-level Executives when considering CRM

Posted by Dick Wooden

When I'm collaborating with entrepreneurs and executive management, we'll get to discuss the business benefits that matter most to them when deciding upon and then implementing a Customer Relationship and Management system.  The following are 7 key benefits that will be discussed.

1.  Build loyal relationships by maximizing the effectiveness of every person's interaction.

We all know that successful business revolves around the depth and breadth of the relationships we have with prospects, customers, clients, partners, vendors, employees, etc.  CRM provides the one trusted source where your company's domain knowledge about people and companies resides.  Consider the added advantages of knowing more about these types of people relationships and turn that into actionable information.

2. Turn insight into decisive action by analyzing performance, trends and business metrics.

Use business dashboards to slice and dice your backend database information so you can make faster and more informed business decisions.

Make fast, reliable business decisions with an eagle-eye view of performance data.

3.  Create and manage marketing campaigns in one place - targeting the most profitable prospects.

Quickly identify who is responding to your campaigns and place new prospects into a drip marketing campaign to nurture the relationship with valuable content from your company.  Provide an up to the minute call list of the most interested prospects for each sales professional.

5. Automate business processes thus maximizing team effectiveness and productivity

Today's intelligent technology allows a person and department to get more accomplished in less time. Examples include Automated Lead management,  advance business alerts for critical events and automated work flow, or  Smart marketing automation.

Additionally having built in tools to help manage a sales person's day so they can easily click to filter the most important information or work from Inside Microsoft Outlook, boosts engagement, knowledge of the customer and productivity.

6. Access vital information from Web, mobile devices, or Windows - whenever and where ever.

Mobility is a must for working outside of the office.  Whether your sales reps are traveling on an airplane, sitting in traffic or working after hours, your CRM system needs to provide 24 x 7 x 365 access to the information when needed.  That may be by using a mobile tablet, smart phone or laptop.

7. Customize your CRM solution to suit your unique business needs.
