Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Pipelinersales announced today the release of 5 benefits of a cloud CRM solution. According to Forrester, rapid adoption of CRM cloud solutions will continue in 2014. With over 70% of enterprises having already deployed or planning to deploy CRM as a SaaS solution. Research by Gartner Group further revealed that, in 2012, 40 percent of CRM systems sold were cloud-based and just recently confirmed that CRM leads all enterprise software categories in projected growth. Gartner predicts that CRM will be a $36 billion dollar market by 2017.
There are many fiscal arguments in favor of a cloud CRM solution - and more are in the works. Here are 5 general cloud CRM cost benefits to help answer the overall question:
#1: Hardware Infrastructure: The considerable cost differential on hardware infrastructure between on-site and cloud is probably the most compelling argument in favor of the cloud. In the small to medium business SMB category especially sales startups, the often substantial upfront costs associated with hardware are totally eliminated, replaced with the comparatively low monthly fee for use of the cloud infrastructure.
#2: Maintenance, Staff and Operational Costs: A cloud provider has a vested interest in rendering the best possible service, and will have an often state-of-the-art hardware infrastructure that could never be afforded—the use of which is covered by a low monthly fee. With the IT infrastructure in the cloud, that considerable on-site data center space requirement can be put to more effective use.
#3: Costs of Software: Once software is purchased, it must be deployed across an organization. This takes IT staff and man-hours, and debugging if for some reason there are software conflicts. With a cloud CRM solution, users can simply pay for their subscription and begin using the software.
#4: Software Upgrade and Update Costs: With a cloud CRM solution, there is never a need to worry about upgrades or updates; the latest versions are always installed without the company ever having to be concerned about it and the latest version is always being utilized.
#5: Cloud CRM Solution Implementation and Training Costs: Choosing the right cloud CRM solution means the sales force—and any other relevant employees—can be trained in hours, not weeks or months. Not only is the staff up and running rapidly, reaping the benefits of CRM, but IT staff can concentrate on more important matters such as the sales pipeline and opportunity management.
A company must obviously weigh the advantages of a cloud CRM solution for their own needs, but most will likely find the advantage are clearly in the cloud. Pipelinersales just launched in the United States last year with their cloud CRM solution. Pipeliner CRM is the only CRM software available that enables automatic synchronization for both Mac and PC systems—locally or through the cloud. This is significant for enabling team collaboration as data is safely backed-up, and instantly available to the entire team.
Last year marked many milestones for Pipelinersales as the company had great success winning customers worldwide. With a global sales force, strong marketing team, seasoned developers, and an exceptional CRM solution, the company is well positioned for further rapid expansion and to make a strong foothold into this projected 36 billion dollar market.
