From a new industry focused on contact management and sales automation in the mid-1980s, CRM has grown into a mature and rapidly evolving, $40 billion industry focused on:
- Sales enablement
- Customer service enablement
- Marketing enablement
- Call Center enablement
Lured by the promise of increased productivity, enhanced sales, improved marketing, better service and lowered costs, CRM has now been implemented by hundreds of thousands of organizations as an integral component of their customer-centric strategies. The successes have been real, and the results have been significant.
But like all things that appear too good to be true, organizations have faced tremendous challenges in building successful CRM programs and realizing effective returns on investment. The current CRM failure rate is still greater than 50%, and that does not include organizations that have only achieved marginal returns or have never been able to fully implement their CRM programs.
