New cloud computing platforms are enabling powerful new solutions to help companies optimize their sales, marketing, business intelligence and call center operations.
Chicago, IL (Vocus) March 17, 2009
Model Metrics, a leading provider of cloud computing and Customer Relationship Management solutions and a premier partner of salesforce.com, today released a new white paper titled “CRM for CEOs”, a definitive guide to help CEOs and executive leadership drive a CRM initiative successfully from start to finish. Written by Kevin Turner, a recognized speaker, published writer and Principal at Model Metrics, the paper is available for free at CRM for CEOs. The article was co-authored by Bill Kalma, Practice Manager, who has led countless enterprise initiatives for Model Metrics clients.
Without guidance and direction, CRM can remain a tactical project with limited tangible benefits. With the right pieces in place, including strong leadership, CRM projects can become a valuable, enterprise-wide strategy that can enable organizational innovation with less risk and higher ROI. This white paper walks business leaders step by step through what can be a complex and difficult process. The steps documented include how to:
- Establish a business case for strategic CRM
- Choose the appropriate business processes for improvement
- Effectively manage change throughout the CRM project lifecycle
- Enact governance and administration models
- Leverage CRM as a platform for other strategic initiatives and applications
In addition to the white paper, Model Metrics moderated a panel discussion on the same topic, which was recorded in two parts, the first of which is now available for viewing at CRM for CEOs.
“The process illustrated in this white paper enables CRM success for executives who are looking to get started or take their current initiative to higher levels of business performance,” Turner said. “New cloud computing platforms are enabling powerful new solutions to help companies optimize their sales, marketing, business intelligence and call center operations.”
