As business begins to recover from the current economic downturn, companies increasingly are turning to their current CRM investment to help secure additional sales. Consequently in recent months, ISM has been conducting CRM Assessments for clients that are keen to get all they can from their existing utilization of CRM tools and techniques. When performing a CRM Assessment, ISM draws upon several of the steps in our CRM “Top-Down/Bottom-Up” Roadmap methodology.
The primary objective of the CRM Assessment is to examine the following “people/process/technology” issues:
Review/critique your existing CRM Roadmap
Perform a Technical Assessment
Perform an Organizational/Operational Assessment
Perform a Business Process Assessment
Here's what one company said regarding their CRM Assessment results: "In less than a month, ISM applied its structured CRM Assessment methodology to highlight major people, process and technology concerns, worked with our CRM vendor to secure needed enhancements, and helped ensure needed management commitment to get us back on track."
A written report that provides an assessment of current people/process/technology issues along with recommendations for correcting identified issues. We then present the CRM Assessment report to your organization which includes an extensive question & answer session.
