The Case for a New CRM Solution


CRM software has gone well beyond being a "good to have" capability. Senior management is now generally quite clear that this genre of software is needed. However, it also often acknowledged that companies that have deployed CRM software solutions have not obtained the benefits that were promised. When we understand the reasons for this dissatisfaction, we can make the case for a new CRM solution. See the benefits of a new CRM solution.

2011 Customer Relationship Management Buyer's Guide: Innovations in CRM


Customer relationship management (CRM) has matured, and offers more choices than ever before. This buyer’s guide reviews the latest innovations in this software space, focusing on cloud, mobile, and social options, and includes a section on the range of customer-centric and process-oriented add-ons and applications available. The guide also includes valuable CRM resources, case studies, and a directory of CRM vendors.

This buyer’s guide will show what CRM vendors are doing to differentiate themselves from the competition through innovation. We will first describe some of the major innovations in the CRM space (e.g., cloud computing, social media and collaboration tools, mobile technology, and extended functionality), and then review their advantages and disadvantages. For each category of innovation, the guide will illustrate with real- life examples how CRM vendors provide innovative solutions to their customers and the associated benefits.

Innovation in the CRM world can be approached from two main perspectives: innovations in software, which affect the way companies manage their relationships with their customers (e.g., the ability to analyze customer feedback, for better customer service and even product development), and innovations in the market, which affect the accessibility and usability of CRM solutions (e.g., having CRM functionality available in the cloud or on a mobile device). And as the two qualities are interconnected (innovation in one arena generally leads or responds to innovation in the other), this guide focuses equally on innovations in CRM software and in new delivery models, such as cloud computing and mobile.

Throughout this guide, we consider CRM to be more than a set of tools and solutions that companies use to facilitate their interactions with customers. A complete CRM implementation includes strategies and best practices that companies define and apply in order to attract and retain customers.

CRM Innovations


BI for Large Enterprises

CRM innovations can be classified into four major categories: cloud computing, mobile, social, and extended functionality. Each category uses different technologies to address the needs of customer-focused companies and respond to changes in customer behavior. Many vendors innovate in two or more of these categories; others focus on one category (e.g., some traditional CRM vendors do not yet offer a cloud-computing delivery model or social functionality, but they have created strong mobile versions of their solutions).

Most of the innovative initiatives in the CRM space are contained within these four categories (but innovations are by no means limited to these categories). We consider these categories to be of the utmost importance—and this guide will focus on them— because they greatly affect the way companies manage their relationships with customers (existing or potential).
