TEC 2013 CRM Buyer's Guide for Medium and Large Enterprises


Great customer service is the best (some say the only) way to truly stand out from the competition. CRM vendors are helping companies rise to the challenge with new tools for building and measuring relationships. In the 2013 TEC CRM Buyer’s Guide, analyst Raluca Druta walks you through the latest CRM developments and looks at how trends like customer experience management, mobility, and social media integration are changing the way companies do business.

Customer relationship management (CRM) solutions for medium and large enterprises need to be able to accommodate large numbers of complex CRM demands. Medium- and largesized companies often operate across several countries and/or continents and therefore need to harmonize their customers’ efforts and opinions across their respective cultures and geographies. In response to this reality, medium and large enterprises require cohesive systems that allow for coherent customer relationship management.

A cohesive CRM system ensures that there are no repetitions and inadequacies in interactions with customers. A thorough understanding of how the customer moves through the company’s offerings and services is also essential. If the customer experience is grasped correctly, insight can be gained into how internal employees and external partners have responded to customers and the level of satisfaction that the customer has derived from those interactions.

Here is a look at how a cohesive CRM system should work from the perspective of all three points of contact comprised by a CRM system (i.e., sales, marketing, and customer support).

For the purposes of this buyer’s guide, medium and large enterprises are defined as those organizations that have more than 500 employees and more than $100 million (USD) in annual revenue.

The Features and Functions of CRM for Enterprises


Product Technology: Integration

As the business needs for medium and large enterprises set these organizations apart from others, vendors propose CRM software solutions for enterprises that address these particular needs. In this section we will look at CRM for enterprises from two points of view: product technology and functionality.

Most vendors of CRM solutions for enterprises tend to offer complex functionality within a single solution or through integration with other solutions developed by the same vendor or its partners. Nevertheless, with the explosion of CRM niche solutions, medium and large enterprises might be tempted to buy several software solutions from different vendors to manage their CRM requirements. While sometimes they don’t have a choice, this can cause several potential integration problems.

The first set of problems that can be encountered is at the database level. Conflicts might appear between different types of databases (Oracle vs. Microsoft SQL, for example). Even if in theory this does not look like a big problem, in the day-to-day reality integration between two databases can become a nightmare. As the database structure differs from one provider to another, mapping is needed. This can be achieved either with internal IT staff or by buying services from vendors—both imply extra costs. It is preferable for enterprises to buy solutions from the same vendor. Even if these solutions are not perfectly integrated, at least they offer application program interfaces (APIs) and connectors that have been preconfigured to integrate between solutions.

Second, some niche solutions are offered on premise while others are offered in the cloud. Data residing in the cloud is not typically administered by the end user and thus cannot be accessed anytime, anywhere to perform stored procedures (a subroutine available to connected relational database system applications). End users usually require special permission from the vendor to perform any action on data stored in the cloud. In addition, upgrades of either on-premise or cloud solutions can lead to conflicts or rules being overridden. For instance, the API might fail to function as expected after an upgrade. Or permission to access certain functionality or data might be changed.
