Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

    What is a CRM system? And why is it important to choose the right CRM software?

    A CRM system (or Customer Relationship Management) is a software that centralizes all the customer information in detail and in real time. The software not only gathers the contact information, characteristics and preferences of all the customers in one central place, but it also stores all the interactions with the customers such as emails, appointments, phone calls, product and service purchase history, etc.  By extension, it is possible to store and manage the information and interactions of any external company counterparts through a CRM such as suppliers, partners, etc.

    A CRM system allows a reduction in sales costs, and an increase in turnover thanks to the optimized management of the sales forces

    A CRM system makes it possible to monitor, manage and optimize sales processes by managing leads, prospects, sales and business opportunities, sales and pre-sales activities, etc. Dashboards and reports showing the expected turnover by sales representative, region, product category, probability of business completion, etc. make it possible to manage and optimise sales activity.  Specific modules are used to optimize the travel time of sales representatives from one customer to another, etc

    A CRM system is a very effective marketing tool

    Thanks to the multiple attributes that can be defined for each customer, a CRM system makes it possible to better understand customers, their needs and their purchasing habits; it allows them to be segmented and to refine the business strategy and the company positioning. A CRM system also makes it possible to define strategic actions such as advertising and marketing campaigns, build customer loyalty and development, detect new business opportunities, etc

    A CRM system is the engine that drives your help desk / customer support department

    In addition to contact, interaction, sales and marketing information, a CRM system allows you to manage all the activity of a help desk.  Support tickets, employees, escalation levels, monitoring dashboards, etc. All this information can be managed in real time and will be automatically available to all employees, just like other information.

    CRM, Data Integration and Master Data Management (MDM)

    The information contained in a CRM system (contacts, sales, activities, etc.) is often input, updated and used in multiple other applications of the information system.  Problems of a) synchronization of these different systems, b) data quality, and c) management of the master data (i.e. reference data) therefore arise... which are typical of the fields of data integration and MDM, two preferred fields of ReportingSoft.

    Analytical CRM, an application of Business Intelligence (BI) to CRM
