Five mistakes when choosing a CRM

I. CRM is not a panacea

Usually, companies do not seek overall automation, but rather center their hopes on one software product, which often is a CRM system. CRM advertisements claim to double your business or triple the number of your loyal customers.

There are two reasons for this mistake.

First, it is not the system or the number of loyal customers, but your employees, who increase the sales volume. A software suite with CRM core only supports the employees.

Conclusion: a great deal depends on employees, not a system.

Smart Way to Automate Project Management

Success of each project depends on several aspects: clarity of goals and requirements, control of the project scope, resources, schedule, quality and risks.

When you have to manage many projects at the same time, a typical project management system is not a sufficient tool and customizing it is too long and expensive. While a business process based solution can be of great help to a project manager, since it can automate routine processes and allot more time for making significant changes to the project.

If a company needs a transition to a higher level of project management, which allows connecting execution of all the projects in a single process, a special system is necessary.
