Why are there so many failed CRM implementations?
We have lost count of how many times we have had the conversation with marketing and sales directors about how their “CRM doesn’t work”, doesn’t give them the right information and has fallen into disrepute – despite their investment of time and money in it.
Our views on this have been born from hard won experience.
1: We see that most CRMs don’t work because they are built from the sales and marketing directors perspective down
2: We believe that if you are going to build a system that is successful, you need to build it from the salesperson’s view up!
3: If you make the system relevant and easy to use from the sales teams’ perspective, it will get used, and the senior team will get the management information that they need.
4: Many CRMs are cumbersome and unwieldly to use, inputting records and data takes too long. This causes frustration and abandonment of due process.
5: Many CRMs (by definition) are great at managing “customers”, but not very good at managing “prospects” and “suspects”. In order to be truly successful any system needs to facilitate sales and marketing activity aimed at accounts and contacts from way outside the sales funnel, to the point of order – then onward into retention and expansion.
6: To meet the challenges of 21st century sales and new business development every potential synergy between sales, marketing, retention and customer service have to be synchronised and leveraged to gain maximum returns and convert the most profitable contracts. Many CRMs offer this potential but make it extremely difficult to actually fulfil.
Why does a Broadley Speaking implementation work?
1: We are not ‘techies’ – the backbone that runs through our business is sales, sales and more sales – we are highly experienced sales and marketing professionals with a high degree of data proficiency. This means we build CRMs and ProMS that work!
2: We have dozens of active examples we can show you and can demonstrate how they have been used to develop robust sales pipelines.
3: These live examples of systems include those built for FTSE Top 25 businesses and small and medium sized, independent businesses. They service local, regional, national and international sales teams from teams of 1 to those with hundreds of sales people.
4: We are accredited Zoho Consulting Partners.
5: We are accredited Zoho Platform Partners
6: We have clients right across the UK & Ireland, Europe, Middle East, and APAC.
