Understanding the Data Hunger
One cannot emphasize enough how data is the new currency. When translated correctly, the data can provide valuable insights to companies that can help them in various manners. For instance, a retail company manager can study data to predict purchase patterns and trends, a business leader can rely on data to make informed decisions, and a logistics expert can identify the pain points, and so on. In short, data helps brands know their audience better and take timely actions.
Leveraging an action plan isn’t enough. It is a must that companies measure how they are faring in the market, how successful are their strategies, and more. Hence KPIs and checkpoints are to be decided before launching. It will help to know what works and what does, how the customers feel about a product, how a product or service stands in the market against its rivals, etc.
As pandemic forced people to work from home, cloud platforms surged. Cloud technology not only acts as a storehouse of data but also helps maintain the connectivity and helps in an easy relay of information. Further, it saves costs, provides security, scalability, sustainability, and mobility to a business. It promotes collaboration, faster disaster recovery, enhances the quality control processes, and also prevents accidental loss of data. Organizations can determine their level of control with as-a-service options using the cloud too.
Having a good CRM software or a vendor is a must. While CRM can be a checkpoint tool, but it has immense potential. Besides identifying leads and categorizing them, CRM can bring immediate improvements to the bottom line. It can boost sales productivity, customer satisfaction, and revenues simultaneously. Harvard Business Review mentions that CRM is not a tool for buffing a company’s performance at the edges. It should be applied only to processes vital to a company’s competitiveness—those that can distance a firm from its competitors or keep a function (such as call center response time) on par with the rest of the industry when parity counts.
