CRM for Financial and Insurance Markets

Customer relationship management (CRM) focuses on the retention of customers by collecting data from all customer interactions with a company from all access points (by phone, mail, or Web, or in the field). The company can then use this data for specific business purposes by taking a customer-centric rather than a product-centric approach. CRM applications are front-end tools designed to facilitate the capture, consolidation, analysis, and enterprise-wide dissemination of data from existing and potential customers. This process occurs throughout the marketing, sales, and service stages, with the objective of better understanding one’s customers and anticipating their interest in an enterprise’s products or services.

Integrating BI with Enterprise Business Applications Can Add Value for End-users


While ERP solutions and enterprise business applications may integrate information from legacy systems and specialized best-of-breed software, most enterprise solutions do not provide a simple dashboard or analytical approach to information presentation. Standard reports provided by business applications do not satisfy the need for on-the-fly, end-user reports that enable the kind of sophisticated decision-making and monitoring power you need.
