CRM applications are not often described as ‘simple and user-friendly.’ That’s where ‘helpers’ such as Salesforce.com or Hubspot step in. They help the end-user facilitate the entire process.
End-user adoption is a critical piece to your CRM application
focuses on changing people’s behavior (which, as we all know, is a lot easier said than done). End-user adoption can contribute to your business in unexpected ways. And, it can do so quickly; making your business thrive, before you even know it.
Have you ever wondered if your users actually find your CRM application easy to use, comprehensive and intuitive?
When it comes to implementing CRM systems, there are 5 issues that need to be addressed:
1. Select executive sponsors: Designate an executive sponsor that will manage a series of ‘highly important’ tasks. Tasks include everything from driving the CRM agenda to designing strategy to ensuring the operational use of the system.
2. Introduce the users to the new CRM application: It is essential to make the application as appealing, clean and as easy-to-use as possible, especially from the get-go. First impressions mean a lot so don’t gloss over your software implementation process.
3. Make sure that your CRM process is in sync with your business processes: It is pointless to choose a CRM system that is not on the same wavelength as your business processes. Your solution must fit your need.
4. Employee training and education: It is vital for your employees to know how to use the CRM application. Start investing from the inside.
5. Keep the users engaged throughout the entire life cycle of the application: Bored users leave and confused users leave. But, engaged users stick around.
Now that we have addressed these issues, have you wondered what happens to users after the training session is over and the application is up and running?
What’s to be done from that point on – how do you bring customers on board without spending a fortune? How can you minimize costs and boost the productivity of your business at the same time?
