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.

The Big Picture: A Comprehensive Approach to Talent Management


Talent management is an ever-evolving challenge for HR professionals. Acquiring the best talent from the largest candidate pool in history is a difficult task, and competition is fierce, while the traditional performance review cycle is no longer adequate for evaluating the roles and needs of employees. Managers must ensure that not only are they able to find the right individual for the job, but that they are also proactively retaining, engaging, and preparing top performers for leadership roles.

Meanwhile, talent demographics are changing dramatically. In 2015, members of Gen Y, or “millennials”, will outnumber baby boomers in the workplace for the first time. Generation Y employees thrive under adaptive talent management that utilizes social collaboration and recent technological advances, something that talent tactics of the past may not be adapted to.

Talent management is thus more complicated than ever, and it’s no wonder HR professionals need help to find the right people with the right skills at the right time and keep them engaged. Talent management systems can help HR professionals create and sustain a competitive advantage. This white paper looks at some factors for talent management success in today’s challenging talent landscape, including how talent solutions can leverage business intelligence and analytics to create and sustain a competitive advantage.
