  • We first attacked the issue with CRM technology. We saw that from time to time, our processes would be altered or ignored, as the sales pressure grew. Salespersons and managers under stress to sell something will become single minded. When this happens, accurate, consistent tracking and follow-up suffer and become disconnected from the business model. With a business model that is turbo charged by a CRM , improvements in areas of accurate consistent, follow-up, marketing, merchandising, stocking, trend analysis, discipline, etc., become the tool to allow your staff to be flexible and the organization to handle constant ever changing pressure.
