How hard is it?
The first part of the answer depends on what problem you’re trying to solve. It may be simple activity reporting for your sales team, in which case you need little technical configuration. Or if you need integration with ERP systems, payment gateways or custom features, then the complexity of delivering the CRM scales.
No matter the complexity though–a clear definition of the problem you’re trying to solve using the CRM platform will always simplify the roll-out.
The second part of the answer revolves around the human element. Introducing a CRM to your business involves more than configuring software. For a CRM to give you the results you want, it needs to become the hub of your sales operations.
For the project to succeed, you need to prepare your staff and then commit to using, then refining your system.
Two approaches to CRM
- You control the process end-to-end
- Pivot as you need
- You maintain full operational knowledge of your system
- You roll out at your own pace and availability of resources
- Short-term cost to implement may be seen as cheaper
- Viable for business with prior CRM and technical experience, with a specific roll-out goal
Engage a CRM Consultancy
- You don’t need to be technical
- Actual cost to implement normally lower than DIY approach because of efficiency
- You avoid most mistakes or dead-end decisions by taking advantage of the CRM Consultant’s technical / change management experience
- Higher percentage of successful roll-outs and staff adoption
- You get the customisations or integrations you need as part of your roll-out
- Controlled implementations lead to predictable improvement cycles
How much can I customise my CRM?
The short answer: a lot.
- Screen layouts
- Custom input fields
- Business rule automation (such as escalations to managers & approvals)
- Integration with 3rd party systems
The longer answer:
The platform you decide on determines how much customisation you can have. Both Zoho One and SugarCRM allow you to customise aspects of the CRM at a user level. If you’re looking for a deeper level of integration with another data source, or extensive custom functionality beyond the core systems, then SugarCRM with its open source code base may be the stronger option. In either case, call us to discuss your needs and we’ll help you find the right answer.
