Customer Relationship Management on point

Simply put, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is the technical backbone for sales, marketing and customer service. It supports the sustainable and, above all, efficient management and development of the entire customer relationship. But what exactly does a CRM system by valantic do, and what benefits does it provide? We would be happy to show you what we can do in the area of customer engagement.

Goal-oriented interaction & efficient self-management Customer relationship management

Important: To create a seamless user experience across all channels and touchpoints, we have to work and act across all departments.

Sales, customer service, and marketing: Integrated processes are also coming into focus beyond these customer-facing departments – along the entire value chain. CRM is thus a central element of a customer-centric system landscape. In this context, we like to speak of customer managed relationships as a further development of classic CRM.

The famous "thinking outside the box"

CRM = the digital future of customer relationships

Our CRM experts know: How well customer engagement works depends, among other things, on the digital “maturity level” of a company. In this context, a whole series of relevant questions arise:

  • What value does digitalization create for my customer relationships?
  • How does digitalization make the various departments in my company faster, better and more successful?
  • How can I ensure that my team uses the digital tools provided?
  • How do I offer my customers added value through digitalization?
  • Which customer expectations can I fulfill (only) through digitalization?

 

As you can see: In order to answer these questions, it is necessary to think outside the box. As a digital solution, valantic CX recommends comprehensive customer relationship management to …

steer business in the right direction: define key figures and a common picture of the customer.

win orders: follow the strategy and keep an eye on success patterns.

work effectively and efficiently: focus on customers with the highest potential and establish standard processes.

achieve growth: define, plan and implement goals and results.

retain customers: for instance, via up- and cross-selling.

There is a lot to be said for CRM systems Why CRM? Because!

You are not yet sure whether you need a CRM system? We are! Used correctly, CRM is much more than an efficient management tool. It is a cross-departmental measure that takes work off your hands and can even make the process more fun. Namely, when it comes to aspects such as gamification, predictive tools, or artificial intelligence.

The CRM systems by valantic contribute first and foremost to an inspiring user experience. Of course, this also has an effect on the customer experience. After all, satisfied employees in the areas of sales and marketing ultimately also make the end customers happy.

Would you like a concrete example? “As a sales representative, I want to spend less time planning visits and in the car – and more time focusing on the important things. Meeting business partners and customers and having constructive conversations.” Does this wish sound familiar? Unfortunately, the reality is often different. Good news: Certain tools in CRM can, for example, optimize tour planning in the field. This means that sales employees have more time for their customers.

As a general rule, CRM systems break down data silos by taking a cross-departmental approach. Thanks to end-to-end customer journeys, the right people are reached at the right time with the right message. And that ultimately leads to an increase in sales and earnings.

Benefits for end customers

Customer relationships are constantly in flux. But regardless of whether it was then or now, online or offline: Customers want to be inspired. They want to experience something. And that is probably the greatest benefit of CRM for the end customer. It’s about digital experiences that create enthusiasm and sustainably increase customer satisfaction.

From customized offers to individual customer support: CRM systems allow you to design end-to-end customer journeys. So that every customer feels that their personal needs are taken seriously and understood.
