  14. CRM is a great concept to apply to any business. When I worked my network marketing business, we had to interface through the string of client connections. Deals, Marketing, Accounting, and Customer Service were integrated with an incredible, unified CRM, Me. Unfortunately, I was the CRM that had to hold client reliability, increment income, and convey regular and productive client care. I had to access which clients to concentrate on, work with those who needed the help the most. There was a ton of paperwork because everything had to be done manually. This CRM would have been a blessing to have had then. I can see the need for it today. A great post as always.

  15. The CRM seems to be a very important aspect of business in this digital age. I did not realize how extensive the CRM software is. It covers many areas of a business that relate to serving clients. I wonder if there are few CRM software programs available on the internet. I also if the software is appropriate for very small business that only have one or two persons working.

  16. CRM is crucial in a successful business. The key between good customer service and a profitable business should show a direct correlation. Having a dedicated CRM team allows members that are experts in that field to properly represent a business. A business owner cant be the expert at every element of their business but need to employee people that can.

  17. Thanks for your post Krish. I agree with you, any tools that help track all of your customers’ activity is a piece of great information. If you know what your customer demand is, then you can figure what amount of inventory you must carry to meet this demand. It is a win-win for your customer and yourself.

  18. My motto is the customer is ordinarily right. There are, however occasions when the customer just tries it on for a gain of some sort. For example, tell the waiter that the food was not up to scratch when it was very helpful. Will he expect something off the bill, probably. He or she will then pay the bill with the adjustment and walk out thinking Gotcha. Not all is it seems Compumatrix is decentralized and transparent Thanks, Henry

  19. Such a true post. I was involved in CRM in the last job I worked at a big hospital. The customer’s relationship to us was always the most important thing and the main focus. Without them, there would be no business. Sad but true, hospitals are indeed a business. Yes they help and serve the public, but it takes all kinds of real money to keep them afloat. CRM was so important.
