CRM spans various “domains” of corporate activity - Sales Force Automation and Management, Marketing, Operations and, in some cases, Finance.
Marketing is about “pull”, while Sales is about “push”, in the traditional sense. But a well-designed CRM solution will break down the barriers between these segments, providing a seamless transition from one to the other.
Sales management is all about operations and process. A good CRM solution recognizes that, but also recognizes that there’s life after a sale – post-sales activities, Support, etc.
We’re using Impel as an example here, but the idea is that most CRMs worth their salt must straddle these divisions between customer (i.e. company using the CRM solution) and client (individuals/companies buying things from customer). And must provide ways of engaging with various parties in the environment (dealers, distributors, etc.) in various ways (SMS, email, social networks, etc.).
Salespeople plan and manage dealer relationshipsSalespeople operate in specific territories via dealersSalespeople plan visits to dealers based on specific objectivesSalesperson in field needs dealer-specific info in some cases – via SMSSalesperson needs to submit pro forma order from field – via SMSSalesperson needs to add completed/planned activity from field – via SMS.
Prospect sends SMS in response to marketing programProspect typically responding via shortcode to sales offerResponse appears in Impel in seconds, with mobile #, etc.Call Centre agent calls Prospect, collects more infoCall Centre agent may assign specific dealer to ProspectProspect/dealer can confirm completion of sale via SMSImpel users can analyze, export and work with prospect data.
