Some CRM challenges faced by businesses and how to beat them

Getting any new business solution up and running can be a challenge. By choosing a cloud-based solution such as Salesforce CRM, you’ll find that the implementation process and ongoing maintenance is much easier than with traditional software solutions. We’ve identified the 5 most common issues when it comes to implementing CRM. Make sure you have these bases covered and you’ll be on your way to success.

1)  Lack of strategic vision - Use the Salesforce CRM to capture and communicate your vision statement. . Use it as a work in progress to come up with and document all the important decisions about your application.

2) No clear business process - To get the most from Salesforce CRM, you’ll want to make it work the way you do. To do that, it’s critical to define your business process so you can prioritize which features, reports, and customizations you want.

3) Not knowing how to measure success - In Salesforce KPIs will show the areas in which the project is meeting your goals. They’ll also help to identify whether you need change course. Common KPIs include the following:

  • Closed sales QTD (quarter to date)
  • Key opportunities
  • Top 5 sales reps
  • Lead conversion rate
  • Completed activities

4) No change management process - Change is a given. You may find that 6 months after you go live, your application no longer meets some business needs. Because Salesforce CRM is so easy to change, you’ll need a process to manage these changes, so they don’t interfere with your business process or undermine your business strategy.

5) Dirty data - A huge benefit of a CRM application is that you get complete visibility into your pipeline, so you can do accurate forecasting and make good decisions. Dirty data frustrates your users and dooms that goal. To clean your data and keep it clean, you need a plan.
