Most organisations that implement CRM as a project where the project has a deadline and a budget. Even though you naturally want to be able to control the budget and timelines in most cases a good CRM implementation never finishes, and you will keep changing and improving your CRM constantly.
It’s like saying I have set up a company and then I’m going to lean back and do nothing. Business is evolving all the time and so should you CRM to adept to the latest changes in your business or your market, to take advantage of the latest enhancements in the software if they help your business be more effective and productive.
Organisations often take a phased approach when they are implementing CRM and start with one or two teams to focus on their priorities before rolling it out to subsequent teams.
What this does is helping you to get results quicker and minimise the upfront cost of CRM without distracting and taking people away from their normal job for a long period of time.
Are the quick wins drying up? What now?
Once the early wins have proven the benefits of CRM you can focus your attention to the next steps such as extending and improving the system. This will help CRM becoming more embedded in organisation’s culture and processes, and as teams and users become more proficient, new requirements will be identified to help deliver even more value.
With those new requirements also comes more pressure on CRM administrators as they will be stretched to get these new requirements implemented quickly. However often they are already stretched due to other demands on their time which will prevent them from actioning these requests and lead to delays.
If users need to wait too long before their request are applied, their engagement, buy-in and goodwill towards the CRM will wane and the whole investment in CRM will be at risk.
