Social CRM is Dead, Long Live Social Media Flavored CRM


Customer relationship management (CRM) is not and cannot really be social, since social means “of, relating to, or occupied with matters affecting human welfare” (definition taken from The Free Dictionary). In my opinion, CRM does not really affect human welfare, since it brings advantages only to its users and to the customers of the companies using it. In this blog post, I will explain why

why social media  is not social and why social CRM (SCRM) is nothing more than CRM using social media tools. Does Social Media Affect Human Welfare? Yes, it does, and in many ways. Of course, different people have different views on the use of social media but I think it has a great impact on human welfare for the following reasons: It is accessible to everyone having an Internet connection (the Internet is the widest network on the planet with 1,733,993,741 users – according to Internet World Stats ). It allows people Read More

RIM Gets the Gist (of Social Media)


The recent acquisition of Gist by BlackBerry developer Research In Motion (RIM) prompted this TEC water cooler information session between TEC's Managing Editor Dave Clark and CRM analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu:DC: OK, even I’ve heard of RIM. What’s Gist? GG: The idea behind Gist was essentially to extend the inbox to the Internet and social world by putting together all contacts from

Unlike business software, it is very easy to switch from one social or mobile application to another, so if a vendor tries to force customers to use its own platform exclusively, many will simply decide to change providers. This is also a smart marketing move, since RIM shows flexibility, and people using Android or Apple Read More

Is Social Media Going to Kill Sales Cold Calling?


Are you still using cold calling for sales? Do you have a strategy when approaching potential customers over the phone or is it mostly a shot in the dark?

Why I Like Vanilla


Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software packages can be highly flexible, but custom configurations may cause more trouble than they’re worth when it comes time to upgrade your system. There are good reasons for keeping it simple, and understanding what your business requirements really are. Hugh R. Alley recounts his experience with ERP gone wrong and argues the merits of plain old vanilla, right out of the box.

why social media  changes to the software. Why did they take this approach? Well, they described the history of their organization’s ERP system. An earlier version had been heavily customized. Then, with budget constraints (don’t we all have them?), they deferred upgrading the software as new versions came out, because of the cost of upgrading the customized portions and the extensive testing that would be necessary. The situation never got better, and pretty soon they were stranded: support for the version of the Read More
