CRM (Customer relationship management software) is used to manage and nurture a company’s interactions with its customers and its sales prospects by keeping track of customer information in a single database so that multiple users can access and share that information. CRM software organizes, automates, and synchronizes business processes-principally sales related activities, but also those for marketing, customer service, and technical support. The overall goals in using CRM software are to find, attract, and win new customers, nurture and retain those the company already has, entice former customers back to the company, and reduce the costs of marketing and customer service.
According to Forrester Research, spending on customer relationship management is expected to top $11 billion annually by 2010, as enterprises seek to grow top-line revenues, improve the customer experience, and boost the productivity of customer-facing staff.
CRM Software: The Way You Want It
The traditional CRM rules have been noted and ignored. Some CRM vendors insist that a CRM solution has to be accessed on-demand through the Internet to be effective. Others argue that it has to be implemented on-site for the best results. But, in fact, the only essential criterion for any CRM implementation is that it has to be right for your business. That’s the DSD Business Systems and Sage Software philosophy. It’s a philosophy that puts the customer’s best interest first. It’s a philosophy of choice.
Sage CRM: Freedom of Choice
Alternatives. Life is full of them. Everywhere you look you have an option. The same holds true for the Sage CRM family that DSD Business Systems sells and supports. Sage CRM solutions can be deployed on the customer’s own hardware or accessed on-demand via the Internet. They can be tailored to meet unique business requirements. Use Sage CRM solutions as standalone applications to improve specific customer-facing activities. Or integrate with existing back-office applications and reap the benefits of collaboration and shared intelligence.
