  1. 1. 1CDC Customer Relationship Management CDC Customer Relationship Management Customer-driven CRM makes it easy to connect the dots.
  2. 2. 2 Customer-driven CRM is driven by what keeps you up at night. It’s driven by what your customers need.
  3. 3. 3CDC Customer Relationship Management With the right CRM comes the opportunity for companies to really get to know their customers, their needs, preferences and their buying patterns. More than ever, companies require an integrated strategy that supports customers from the moment they enter the front door—or website—to the time they make a purchase, and beyond. They need a solution that helps them connect the dots. Along the way, IT managers need an integrated set of technologies—from websites to databases and data mining tools—to make it work. At CDC Software, our customer-driven CDC Pivotal CRM matches business strategies to the technologies needed to make them work, resulting in increased market share, improved customer satisfaction, and a higher retention rate. So, now, you can be the company you’ve always wanted to be.
  4. 4. 4 Stay connected. As your business grows, chances are you have less face-to-face communication with customers. Yet, those customers expect the same kind of customer service they’ve always had. CRM centralizes information in a single place, which promotes a better understanding of a customer’s needs. Enhance collaboration. Accessing shared solutions enables teams to make quicker, more cost effective decisions. All of that account history can be quickly accessed and referred to the next time a customer calls in. That responsiveness tells the customer they’re important to your company. Automate what works. By automating the routine tasks and proven processes your teams carry out each day, you can do more with less. So, you can fully harness your hard-won business practices to grow while keeping your customers and customer-facing employees happy. Love it. CRM needs to be tightly integrated with the tools your people already use, like Microsoft Office Outlook. What that means is faster adoption by users, less switching between applications and higher productivity for anyone who deals directly with your customers. Grow upward. CRM listens to your customer, understands their needs, and provides them with support through processes that engage and interact, rather than contain and box in. Mirror your unique business processes. Most businesses have evolved with their customers over time and refined their own unique processes. These processes are hard-won competitive differentiators. CRM will enhance and mirror these processes, not change them. Anything relationship management. CRM is the management of any type of relationship—customers or employees, anything. It should be fundamentally flexible and configurable, to meet the nuances in your business. Compromise on cost, not quality. You want your CRM at a cost you can afford. We do this by assessing your requirements and offering you strategic solutions you can use, so your business grows, but not at the cost of your profits. Build outward-in. CRM is designed to maximize your competitive advantage—it starts by mapping to your customers’ needs. Build, grow, and drive your business forward. Customer-driven CRM makes your staff more productive, your sales processes more effective, and your customers happier.
  5. 5. 5CDC Customer Relationship Management Take action. To grow your business, you must respond swiftly to changes in market conditions, competitive situations, and business process, and seize every opportunity that arises. CRM is a facilitator in this process, not a roadblock. Get big-picture perspective. CRM delivers real- time business visibility and actionable insights for sales, marketing and service managers, as well as executives. Solve problems and seize opportunities. Gain immediate business insight anywhere. CRM puts critical business information at your fingertips with mobile dashboards and reports. CRM interfaces with tools your users are already familiar with, so you can stay connected, anytime and anywhere. Empower to react quickly. CRM gathers and presents real-time data on everything from sales forecasts and marketing campaigns to account activities and phone logs—allowing you to spend more time managing your business, and less time with the mechanics of running reports. Drive forward. CRM meets both customer and employee expectations, while giving your company flexibility to innovate and adapt to the changing needs of business.
