As CEO, Your Success Relies On The Effectiveness Of Your CRM!
"I know that my Sales & Service teams push back on having to use our CRM every single day. But if they do not maintain their pipeline data, their leads & record their activity we are running blind in the C-Suite.Unless they embrace the CRM, it will never work for me as a single source of truth on what's happening in my business."
1. You Need Your CRM To Work For You.
When embraced by your whole company, your CRM can be the most effective business tool that you have. It is a major investment but likely at the moment provides little payback.
Acting as a single source of truth, it should contain all of your sales data, Customer information, team activity, emails & service history and more.
When it does, the analytics, dashboards & reports that you can access will provide you a 360 degree view of the health of your business and allow you to optimize your productivity, grow revenue, minimize and mitigate risks and so much more.
An effective CRM is a 'must have' for every successful business. You need this system for visibility across the company.
2. But The Data In Your CRM Is Unlikely To Be Accurate.
To achieve this, you need your Customer facing teams to embrace your CRM. They need to opt in, maintain it and use it every single day!
Sales team in particular need to log all of their activity, most importantly they must ensure that their opportunities and pipeline data is accurate and up to date.
Statistics show that most of these types of users refuse to do this.
If they are not doing this work then all of the analytics, forecasts & dashboards that your team relies on will be incorrect - in this case bad data on the system can actually be worse than no data at all.

3. Why do Sales teams not embrace their CRMs?
OK. CRMs feel like “big brother is watching” and this naturally leads to salespeople viewing them as an activity monitoring system and source of reprimand. They all realize that marketing, finance, accounts, operations and other staff are not asked to record every single thing they do each day – so why do sales people need to do this?
Sales people who do want to fully embrace their CRMs can spend up to 20% of every day on data entry and maintenance! This equates to up to 2 hours a day when they are not able to be selling (Source : SFDC)
Sales professionals are very transactional. They do not reject technology. In fact they were the first to embrace cell phones, email, Linkedin and more. But they will not spend time on software that they do not feel helps them make sales.
4. Your Sales Team Is Swamped By The Amount Of Software They Are Asked To Use Every Single Day.
And, aside from having to spend hours a day on their CRM, most sales teams are swamped with other software and are being asked to use, every day, 10 or more other software packages!
