Independent actions can wreak havoc within organizations. Especially if these actions are taken with no record or with records kept only by the individual or individuals involved with that particular sequence.
Any successful company or organizations is built on policy. When this policy is followed by those working within the group, the purpose of the group can forwarded and accomplished.
After establishing such policies, the next step is keeping adequate records of each application.
When this isn’t done or done incorrectly, the mind of an organization becomes scattered and dispersed (as will any customers connected with such an organization).
If this isn’t remedied, these customers will likely make their way over to companies who have their basic organization a bit more together.
So what is Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software and how does this apply?
How Does CRM Solve Disorganization?
The basic purpose of CRM (Customer Relationship Management) is to organize and manage all dealings with customers.
This sounds like a simple concept.
In order to do this properly and effectively, though, there are multiple steps and sub-products that lead up to being able to not only properly manage customer relationships but also to create and generate repeat and new customers.
To get an idea of what this entails, it helps to take a look at the steps needed to reach the point of delivering your product to a customer.
This is going to include all of the marketing and sales that lead up to having an active customer.
If you had the website designer, the direct mail officer and the salesman all working on different parts of the process and keeping their own individual notes, you can see how this would start to breakdown.
Expand this further to the point where the client is now buying products from the organization and you’ve added accounts, order management, fulfillment, delivery and customer service.
Imagine if each of these departments worked independently and made determinations without taking the others on the production line into account.
It’s not hard to see how this would and does get out of control quite easily.
An effective Customer Relationship Management system that is used by everyone in the organization aligns all departments on a direct line that follows a client from the their first initial contact until the delivery of their product and beyond to the next cycle.
