Four Key Success Factors in CRM Deployment
According to Forrester, achieving CRM deployment success requires a balanced approach to four fundamental success factors:
Nearly half (44%) agreed their CRM projects faced problems grounded in: poor or insufficient definition of business requirements; inadequate business process designs; and the need to customize solutions to fit unique organizational requirements.
More than two-fifths (42%) agreed that their problems were “people” issues such as slow user adoption; inadequate attention paid to change management and training; and difficulties in aligning the organizational culture with new ways of working.
Two-fifths (40%) agreed they had the challenges related to CRM strategy: a lack of clearly defined objectives; poor solution deployment practices; and insufficient solution governance practices.
Only about one-third (35%) agreed that they had technology deficiencies such as: data problems; functional shortfalls in vendor solutions; lack of required skill sets needed to implement the solution; system performance shortfalls; and poor usability.
