"Successful CRM is about competing in the relationship dimension. Not as an alternative to having a competitive product or reasonable price- but as a differentiator. If your competitors are doing the same thing you are (as they generally are), product and price wont give you a long-term, sustainable competitive advantage. But if you can get an edge based on how customers feel about yourcompany, its a much stickier--sustainable--relationship over the long haul." -Bob Thompson, Customer Think Corporation
