How to Evaluate CRM Software?

CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software can vary widely in costs starting from free package to thousands of rupees. If your company is interested to invest in a CRM system, then it's a good idea to start by comparing and evaluating CRM application demo programs.

Most of the CRM companies provide demo so that the customer can make use of the demo to understand the product before purchasing it. Some companies provide demo through web conference or online options, some put the demo version on their website. So this gives the chance for the buyer to understand the product completely, evaluate how much user friendly it is and the features it offers.

Time spent conducting a proper evaluation on CRM can save a lot of hassle and waste of time later on. No matter how much cost-effective a CRM system may be, but its not worth a bargain if its difficult to use, if it doesn't offer functionalities that your company needs. First do some research, compare many CRM products, visit various websites, read customer testimonials and blogs about CRM systems.

Few suggestions which can be helpful for evaluating a CRM demo product:

  • Make a clear understanding of what all features your company needs before you begin to search for a CRM product.
  • You can have custom features that can fit your business specifically
  • A worflow design will help in having a clear picture of what your service executives and sales representatives would need.
  • The CRM system that you would purchase should increase the productivity of your sales executives.
  • There are programs designed for marketing purposes that can help in increasing revenue and save time. You can try for those options if it could greatly help your business.

Once you have checked and understood various CRM demo systems, determine which one best suits your business needs and budget. Once you have short listed few CRM products, begin to explore it in depth to understand the quality of the product. Check for references, guarantees and customer support for the application. Never buy a CRM without a try!

A CRM system will definitely work to increase customer satisfaction and sales, but it is a major purchase. Treat the investment of your CRM system the same way you would treat any major investment, like buying a new car: determine your needs, do your research, get opinions and testimonials, and take it for a test drive.
