Young companies are usually reluctant to use advanced customer relationship management systems (CRM) mostly for rational reasons: financial and organizational issues, the availability of classic solutions (i. e. spreadsheets) and free tools. It often turns out that the applied solutions are not sufficient. There are growing needs in the area of management systems that allow process automation, their improvement and the increase of team efficiency. This is not only about client categorization and archiving the steps that are being taken, but also about the flow of information between the team members and the documents and materials management. At the same time, every change is a challenge related to adopting the new system and its effective usage on a daily basis. The decision about using CRM does not always go in line with the need for development, but it may raise some doubts.
The frequently asked questions during the meetings are:
- How to improve the flow of information?
- How to improve the efficiency of the sales team?
- How to speed up the work of my employees?
- How much cost the solutions aligned with my needs?
- What happens, if the company situation changes?
- Do I need to buy servers?
- Does the adjustment of the system to the particular needs require code changes?
- What happens with the collected data?
- How many systems do I need?
The above list shows the main concerns of people who run their companies. These concerns concentrate on three areas: finances, work organization, and software capabilities. The developers focused on these areas while creating and developing SALESFORCE.
Salesforce is a cloud-based software that has been developed continually for several years. Its main purpose is NO HARDWARE which means that there is no need to buy servers and hire network administrators to use it. You need internet access and the internet browser to use the resources of the system.
System implementation and solution adjustment
