Intelestream, Inc., a leading CRM consulting firm and developers of intelecrm™, the award winning small business online CRM solution, today released the transcript of an interview with Ray Stoeckicht, the company’s VP of Professional Services. The interview answers common questions that small businesses are faced with when developing a CRM strategy. Stoeckicht offers his candid thoughts on the growing popularity of Social CRM.

In the interview, Stoeckicht states, “I think there is a lot of hype surrounding Social CRM and not a lot of room for practical application. I’m going to be honest here. Aside from being a marketing tool, I don’t see much value for Social CRM in the sales cycle. Call me a cynic, but I’m skeptical. One of our clients told me the other day that social networking is great, but that her sales reps were interested in closing deals, not building communities. Fair enough. I have to hand it to her; she called a spade a spade.” A full transcript of the interview can be read at http://www.intelestream.net/lp/lp-Qray1.html.

The company also announced its free webinar, Understanding CRM, scheduled on July 8th, 2010, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM Central Time.
