It’s clear that merging different processes can help you work faster and simplify your workday. Effective CRM integration is one step that will help you work more efficiently for a number of reasons.
If you’re not familiar with these concepts or what CRM integration can do for your businesses, read on.
Benefits of Effective CRM Integration
In case you’re not familiar with the technology, CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management. It’s a digital system that allows you to track your interactions with existing customers and prospective clients. CRM platforms generally include lead, email marketing, and campaign management, as well as sales forecasting, customer support such as live chats, and call center management.
When you work with a reliable technology consultant, you can integrate your CRM with other tools you regularly use in your industry, such as your enhanced analytics and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems. An ERP system allows you to include information about internal operations, so when you merge that information together with information about your external efforts, you’ll end up with a more comprehensive system.
• determine which stage each prospect is in within the buyer’s journey.
• take note of which member of your organization is communicating with each prospect.
• keep in touch with existing customers in order to maintain relationships and grow your client base.
• maintain a more complete database of employees and clients as well as contractors or service agencies you might use.
• improve communication in general.
• remind existing customers that they should take advantage of your services again, such as informing them that they are due for their annual eye exam or that their vehicle is due for that oil change.
• identify whether or not your prospects are still interested in your product or service.
That last part is especially important because if specific individuals have asked not to be contacted anymore, your business could be penalized for continuing to contact them. It also helps you avoid wasting your time, such as by contacting someone to see if they want to buy your product when they already have.
