So how do you work out which kind of CRM solution is right for your growing business?  What are the seven key questions you need to consider?  These are the seven questions, whether your project is being led by an IT focussed person or by a more business focussed person.  Usually, a business focussed person leading the project with genuine support from IT, will deliver the best CRM results - since CRM is not technology, although it does use technology.

  1. What do you need the CRM solution to do for you?
  2. On-premise CRM or cloud CRM?
  3. Which CRM provider should I choose?
  4. What's the best way to compare CRM systems?
  5. Is CRM easy to use? How can I motivate my staff to use a CRM solution?
  6. Do we choose a generic CRM or an industry specific CRM solution?
  7. Is the CRM system configurable to our unique business processes?
