The more efficiently a business can manage the relationships it has with its customers, the more successful it will become. The importance of retaining existing customers and expanding business is paramount.
The costs associated with finding new customers mean that every existing customer could be important. Customer relationship management (CRM) is not just the application of technology, but is a strategy to learn more about customers' needs and behaviours in order to develop stronger relationships with them. As such it is more of a business philosophy than a technical solution to assist in dealing with customers effectively and efficiently. Nevertheless, successful CRM relies on the use of technology.
Customer relationship management also helps businesses to gain an insight into the behaviour of their customers and modify their business operations to ensure that customers are served in the best possible way.
In essence, CRM helps a business to recognise the value of its customers and to capitalise on improved customer relations. The better you understand your customers, the more responsive you can be to their needs.
