Introduction
Where could we make more money? It is possible to use CRM to manage the entire relationship cycle: that is usually a bad idea! Large systems usually do not pay back. The focus of CRM should be the weak points that undermine performance

Introduction
Where can we make more money? Focusing on weak points can not only be an effective way to build a successful CRM program but can also put it back on track in case you started one.

Introduction
Do we need perfect data? Perfect real time information comes at a very high cost The requirements for real time and good data are quite different Example: Outstandings on a current account (real time) versus portfolio management data (good data)

Introduction
Introducing CRM before changing your organisation into a customer focused organisation = like painting without sanding CRM will succeed only AFTER the organisation and its processes job descriptions, performance measures, compensation systems, training programs, and so on- have been structure to provide superior customer value

Introduction
Assume that more technology is better = is like building without foundation To start, see what lower-tech alternatives offer; there may be no need for more in the very near future In the future as sequence of individual software solutions may lead to each step reinforcing the next step

Introduction
Define the right customers you want to establish a relationship with = a two way street Just because managers can contact customers, does not mean they should by all means and for whatever reason.
