Astir IT - Customer Relationship Management CRM

October 16, 2013

Hello,

Customer relationship management has become a major facet of any organization.  It has become increasingly important for companies to keep their current customers happy.  In fact, retaining current customers has become as important as winning new business.

Monitoring current client, developing and managing touch points, and maintaining relationships can be difficult and complex.  Luckily, there are tools on the market that can assist with customer relationship management (CRM.)  These CRM tools help automate procedures, streamline processes, and simplify the overall relationship management exercise.  Yet, with all the CRM tools currently on the market, there isn’t much flexibility or customization available.  “Off the shelf” tools are designed with everyone in mind, and often leave customers with many gaps.

Many times it becomes necessary to seek out custom development of a CRM tool.  Having a CRM application custom built enables customer specific business rules to be implemented; ensuring complete coverage and easy assimilation with existing technology landscapes.  The trick with having CRM tools custom designed and built is finding the right resource to work with.

Astir IT Solutions, Inc. has a number of CRM services to choose from.  As a full service IT company, Astir can provide your company with different options to custom design and build CRM tools.  Astir can take complete control of the development of a CRM tool, and build it off a client site.  Astir can also provide on-site resources to client locations, who can partially or fully manage a CRM project.  Our flexible business model will ensure that all specifications are met, including budget.

The Power of CRM - Astir IT Solutions Blog

March 08, 2012

It’s interesting to note that research has shown that retaining as few as an additional 5% of your customers can increase your profit margin by almost 100%. What keeps this from being great news is that, according to that same research, on average half of a B2B organizations’ customers will leave them within 5 years.

So what is a company to do?

Because you require a better understanding of your customer needs and greater insight into how you can strengthen your customer relationships, begin able to  keep customers happy and identify the best new customers to acquire is key.

This is where CRM (Customer Relationship Management) comes in.

Astir IT can support your CRM endeavors based on 3 key elements: Information, Processes, and Relationships.

Information is critical to understanding the relationships you want to have with your customers. Information is also key in learning how to improve the profitability of these relationships. Without a proper understanding of your customers and their needs, you will never be able to provide the proper services to maintain a longstanding, successful relationship.

Processes promote consistency. Customers want to know that you will perform well, and perform consistently. Customers want to be able to predict their experiences, and want to know that they can expect excellence. Apart from stabilizing a relationship, processes help break down complex tasks into digestible steps for your customers to understand. This way, not only can they predict excellent results, but they can understand the worth in your services.

Relationships are the most important aspect of customer retention. Customers respond to value, and only when you provide consistent value will a customer become loyal. Regular positive interaction allows you to reinforce the positive value you provide your customers, and fosters the strong relationships.

Astir can work with you to define and refine your customer approach. Give me a call, I’d love to discuss the Astir difference.
