Does Your CRM System Belong in This Century, or the Last One?

By Clark Haley | Jul 19th, 12 | Categories: CRM Software, Technology, Pending Update

Facebook, Twitter, Smart Phone Apps, tablets, etc.… It’s remarkable that these things were virtually nonexistent and only existed as mere ideas just five years ago. Today these things play a crucial role in our day-to-day activities all the way from our social lives right down to how we operate our businesses.

“What’s that got to do with me and my business?”, you say. Everything! The times are changing and have been for quite a while. It’s estimated that computers double in speed every two years. Technology is constantly becoming more and more advanced. Have you ever bought a new phone or computer only to discover that the new and improved version is due to be released in less than a month?

As technology continues to advance, so must our business practices. Long term success is dependent on the use of new technology to guide the we operate and attract customers. Are you keeping track of your customer’s activities and sales opportunities? A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution allows businesses to automate sales, marketing and customer service activities. Maximize customer communications and see your sales grow. Think about Microsoft, Apple, Google and others technology leaders who ventured into that market place and what it could do for your business.

It has become apparent that the Internet has become the tool of choice for potential customers to collect information about your company and, in some instances, even ordering your products directly through the web. It’s no longer enough to create a call list, hassle customers all day and nurture the few leads we may have. Inbound marketing and the ability to have customers find you have become increasingly important. Now as more and more people take to mobile devices, entirely new opportunities and industries are arising. Is your business ready, how are you adapting to change? If you’re having trouble keeping track of your clients then you’re already way behind.
