If you’ve been following along this automation journey for more than about a minute, you’ll already be familiar with the acronym CRM: Customer Resource Management.
Being familiar with the terminology is one thing. CRMs sound great in theory - an easy way to manage customers. Simple, right?
In reality, the process of finding a CRM that works for you can be a long and winding road.
There’s considerations such as setup and monthly costs, integration abilities, app capacities and more - finding the CRM that’s best for your needs is not as straightforward as just signing up for the first one you land on. All too often, teams can bounce from CRM to CRM, leading to piling costs, sunken time and missed opportunities.
