What is CRM? Why should I use one?

Customer relationship management software (CRM) refers to practices, strategies and technologies that companies use to manage and analyze customer interactions and data throughout the customer life-cycle. The goal is to enhance business relationships with customers and improve customer retention while driving sales growth. Most CRMs are designed to compile information on customers across different channels or points of contact between the customer and the company. Some of these points of contact are the company's website, live chat, direct mail, marketing materials and social media. 
CRMs can also give customer-facing staff detailed information on customers' personal information, purchase history, buying preferences and concerns.

Adding a CRM

When adding a CRM to your business, there are some considerations that you may want to think about first to help make the decision easier.

—What issues or problems do you want your CRM system to address; what improvements or changes should it bring in the business processes of the organization

• Do you have executive sponsorship and top management support; have you thoroughly measured the impact on the organization as a whole

• Will it empower team members with the required authority to complete the tasks within the CRM

• Have you thoroughly vetted your implementation partner—does your partner have both vertical and horizontal business knowledge, as well as technical expertise

• Have you fully defined the KPIs that will measure the project's success with ROI

• Will you use a phased approach, that is, work towards a long-term end-to-end implementation through a series of smaller, phased implementations
