Does it make sense to develop my own CRM system instead of using a third-party Customer Relationship Management solution?

Mass-market CRM products are usually developed to satisfy general issues and can't always correspond to all the requirements of a particular business. There can be some challenges to implement such a solution and make it an integral part of your existing business processes. It also may cost a lot to train staff and pay constant fees for the usage, as well as update and maintain such a solution. With custom CRM software you will pay only for the development of features that your business requires.

What advantages can a retailer take of CRM implementation?

CRM software for retailers brings in a set of benefits that allows them to work more efficiently and sell more. These benefits are:
Automated tasks and business processes
On-time and personalized customer communication
Effective information collection and processing
Continued access to structured sales data
Accurate identification of high-value customers
Flexible relationship management strategies.

Are there any proposals how I can make my CRM system more convenient to use while being out of the office?

Mobile CRM is the right solution for this matter. It allows your employees and often on-the-go sales people use mobile devices to access, update and interact with customer data wherever they are. With advanced mobile CRM functions your staff members will be able to work as if they were in front of their desktop computers.

Why CRM implementation is of great importance for the Retail industry?

In the extremely competitive environment with a great number of market players and employees being involved, retailers have to adopt high-tech innovations to obtain an edge over their rivals. In the digital era, CRM systems enable retail businesses to enhance consumer experience, improve sales processes, manage customer relationships and marketing campaigns, and enhance productiveness.

Can my custom CRM system be modified according to the altered activity or expanded business capacity?

CRM software systems should be in progress to keep pace as your business grows and business strategies change, but it must be carefully selected and implemented from the onset. When our clients need to broaden their CRM capabilities, we provide modifications, upgrades and product support for your best performance.

You may also want to opt for one of SaaS systems. They are sometimes relatively inexpensive as compared to on-premise CRM software installed on corporate servers.
