CRM or Customer Relationship Management is an important consideration to make before implementing an ERP solution in your company. CRM software adds value to your company by facilitating the complete customer interaction process through a web based interface or locally installed software. There are certain key points that you should think before choosing the right CRM solution for your business.
Before actually buying and implementing a CRM solution in your company, you should do a little bit of research about different CRM systems available in the market. If you have ERP software in place or want to get one, you must make sure that your CRM system could be integrated with it. You can look for consumer reviews on the internet as well which will give you a good idea about the success rate of a specific CRM system.
If you want to select a CRM company, you should ask for references of previous customers and enquire from them about the features of the CRM system.
You can get a web based, locally installed or a hybrid CRM software depending upon your needs. If you strictly want your data to stay at one position, you can get the CRM system installed locally. Web based CRM system allows you to access the CRM system from anywhere with an internet connection. You can select a hybrid version where the server is on the internet and a CRM client application runs on local computers. This system can work in both online and offline modes. You need internet connection for synchronization and backup purposes. Hybrid CRM systems can be integrated with ERP solutions as well.
You should look for a CRM system that fulfils your needs completely. If you go for a solution that does not justify your business goals and objectives, you cannot expect to achieve desired results from the system. Whether you get a local or web based CRM solution, you must check for its complete feature list and decide if it is the right one for you.
