What are the benefits for your company?
1. Improved internal efficiency
Traditional out-of-the-box CRM solutions come with several tools and resources that can help your business. However, once you start using these software solutions, you will find that end-user convenience is not always a priority with these types of solutions. You may be paying for CRM features that you never use.
The business model and corporate culture you adopt also play a very important role in choosing a CRM software. If your software solution does not match these aspects of your business, the entire customer management cycle will be affected.
Customizing your CRM software will greatly increase your efficiency. Employees can make informed decisions about inventory and leads, analyze and manage data, and perform many other essential operations.
A custom CRM will also allow you to include only the tools and features that your business needs. This leads to a positive experience for end users, whether they are customers or employees.
2. Ease of use
In traditional CRM, the software is designed for the masses. This makes it difficult to navigate and requires a lot of mastery and process learning to use it effectively. After factoring in the cost of training each new hire and existing employee to migrate to the new CRM, the overall ROI is very low.
A custom CRM includes AI and machine learning to meet the needs of the employees who use it the most. This makes it easy to integrate your CRM into your existing workflows, eliminates inefficiencies and makes it easier for your employees to use. These solutions are so easy to use that they can save you a large portion of your integration costs over the long term.
3. Long-term savings
The initial investment is always lower for off-the-shelf CRMs than for custom solutions. Therefore, opting for a traditional CRM may seem attractive at first. But the additional costs add up very quickly and are usually not disclosed by the provider.
The first undisclosed cost is the additional license fee. This fee means that you must become an “owner of the product” and pay for the right to use the software. Prices and plans vary by software vendor, but ultimately have a significant impact on your overall bill. Pricing is generally based on the scale of operations, so you may be charged a high license fee just for performing basic tasks. Please note that the license fee is paid annually, whether or not you use all the features offered.
Another possible cost is the usage fee. This means that you have to pay a certain amount for each new user/account.
On the other hand, for custom CRM, there are no licensing or usage fees. You will only pay for the development of the software. By making the comparison, you will save in the long run if you invest in a customized CRM.
4. Increase team efficiency
If you choose a custom CRM software, you have the ability to assign specific dashboards to specific employees and departments. This means that your employees only have access to what is essential to their work. These platforms also streamline integration between sales and marketing teams and provide access to relevant data.
The list of benefits of investing in a custom CRM is much longer: data security, scalability, performance…
