Maximize customer satisfaction and maximize your bottom line
Over the last decade, too many organizations have assumed that their products or services were so superior that customers would automatically keep coming back for more. But in order to compete effectively in today's marketplace, organizations must change their strategy to become more customer focused, not product focused. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is the best way to integrate this customer-facing approach throughout an organization. Aimed at understanding and anticipating the needs of an organization's current and potential customers, this innovative book shows how CRM links people, process, and technology to optimize an enterprise's revenue and profits by first providing maximum customer satisfaction.
* Covers developing a market-oriented strategy, innovation in products and services, sales and channels transformation, customer relationship marketing, and customer care

As the business world increasingly shifts from product focus to customer focus, most organizations recognize that treating existing customers well is the best source of profitable and sustainable revenue growth. But in the age of e-business, companies are challenged more than ever before to truly satisfy their customers.
In the face of increasing competition, mature markets, and the ever-demanding customer, it is easier than ever for customers to defect from your organization when they are just a click away from checking out the competition.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is the key competitive strategy you need to stay focused on the needs of your customers and to integrate a customer-facing approach throughout your organization. CRM is an enterprise-wide approach to not only acquiring and deploying knowledge about your customers, but also to improving and automating the business processes that deliver value to your organization's customers, suppliers, and employees. In short, CRM is critical to your business success.
Sound complicated? It's not. Customer Relationship Management: A Strategic Imperative in the World of e-Business outlines what it takes to be effective in managing the customer relationship:
There is no doubt that in today's business environment, it is becoming increasingly difficult to manage customer relationships profitably. In response, most major organizations have embraced CRM as the way of the future and have invested millions of dollars in CRM technology and processes.
But the hard fact is that, inadvertently, most CRM initiatives fail, crashing upon the rocks of duplicated effort, incompatible business solutions, wasted investment, and an increasingly inconsistent customer experience. But it does not need to happen this way.
CRM can indeed be a powerful strategy, but knowing what
it is and what it can do is simply not enough. That's where Performance Driven CRM comes in. It goes beyond what CRM is and what it can do for your organization, and offers a proven approach that shows clearly and quantifiably how to accomplish your CRM vision. But it doesn't stop there.
- Ensures that your CRM vision becomes reality and fosters
a cycle of continuous improvement.
- Delivers the skills needed to identify when customer
expectations change and how to respond to them.
- Describes the three critical performance programs
necessary to ensure enterprise-wide CRM.

- Offers highly practical, hands-on, and proven tools for measuring and monitoring CRM initiatives: checklists, quizzes, work steps, planning templates, and more.

Networks, Capital One, Radio Shack, and Sears.
Performance Driven CRM provides what has been missing up until now from the world of CRM: standards of performance and a balanced scorecard approach for your customer care initiatives. Performance Driven CRM keeps your CRM vision relevant, alive, and achievable, enabling you to drive successful and lasting CRM change.
