What are the underpinnings of a successful CRM Transformation Program Design? It is all about approaching CRM transformation as a combination of thoughtful CRM Strategy, re-engineered and optimized CRM processes, rearchitected CRM systems, and flawless CRM and Sales operations.
Unless one has been living under a rock, the last decade has witnessed a revolution in how applications are developed and deployed, how analytics are driving data-driven decisions, how social has become an integral part of corporate channels, and how digital omnichannel paradigm is driving customer experience.
So, what do the social, mobile, analytics, and cloud have to do with CRM transformation programs? Pretty much everything. Today, before calling a client a sales person looks at their social media footprint and activity. A customer profile includes not only internal profile and transaction history but also external aggregated data and social media activity. Social channels have transformed beyond teens to find dates and evolved into powerful communication, marketing, sales and engagement channels. And the CRM has been one of the first areas to be disrupted by SAAS software, with SalesForce.com, a pioneer which has evolved into an 800-pound gorilla.
Despite all these positive developments in the CRM arena, many large and reputable firms have sunk millions into shiny new CRM systems, but have had not much to show for, except another failed system implementation. It is not necessarily the fault of the system. After all, a system helps tech enable functions and provides features. The problem goes much deeper and is pervasive in CRM transformations. Hence, for successful CRM transformations, it all starts with vision and strategy, operations and execution, processes and procedures, people and training, and last comes the system.
So, how do successful companies the world over address this potential for CRM transformation program failure and define a successful CRM transformation program? Here is a blueprint for successful CRM transformation program design:

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.
We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.
