Web Based CRM Systems: Get Mobile. Get Results.

by: Cameron Brown
Everyday more web based companies enter the business scene. The low initial investment, potentially high revenue, and convenience of owning and operating a business from your home PC or laptop is enticing an ever-increasing number of entrepreneurs to try their hand at e-business. Unfortunately, most of these would-be companies disappear shortly after their initial market entry.

Many of these businesses might have been more successful if they had invested in a web based CRM system. CRM (customer relationship management) systems have been around as long as business has as a way to keep track of what good was sold and who made the purchase.

Most start-up companies quickly go under because they fail to understand their customers. Without putting substantial effort into collecting and making sense of customer data, a small company is effectively flying blind. They donít know whose buying what, why theyíre buying, or what they would like to see I future products or services. Most new companies not only provide little or no opportunity for voluntary customer feedback, they also fail to make demographic data collection an integral part of their sales and marketing efforts.

Anyone who has just entered the e-business arena ought to be very interested in finding a web based CRM system. While their initial product and service offerings may sustain business operations in the short-term, without proper customer relationship management the company will quickly stagnate or fold.

Todayís web based CRM systems are more versatile than ever and are ideal for startup and growing companies alike. Not only do they offer features like power dialing, voice messaging, and fax/email customization, but web based CRM packages also offer the benefit of portability; a web based CRM system operates wherever there is an internet connection. With the ability to allow sales representatives to be kept up to date on the latest leads, a web based CRM system goes from merely tracking sales to creating them.

As far as paying for a web based CRM system, the great thing about a quality package is that it helps you free up sunk costs on essential services you already spend money on to pay for the system. Most all-in-one CRM systems allow you to coordinate efforts between customer service, sales, marketing, and shipping. Again, the benefit of a web based CRM system can be seen in the ease of communication and coordination between departments, even those operating remotely.

If you currently run or are thinking starting up your own web based company donít try to guess what youíre customers want-find out for sure with a web based CRM system.
