Business Outcomes

  • Pipeline Visibility: Track whether the CRM system is giving sales teams a comprehensive view of customer or prospect activity to identify new opportunities.
  • Conversion Rates: Track current conversion rates across all defined sales stages to establish baselines on which to benchmark success. Include sales, upsells, and cross-sells in tracking.
  • New Business Growth: Track new customer accounts or net new sales by customer.
  • Retention and Profit Per Customer: The duration and value of customer relationships.
  • Sales Performance: Get as granular as possible with your team’s performance, such as average sales cycle, conversion rate by sales rep, or activities across each stage of engagement.
  • SLA Compliance: Manage performance and compliance with service level agreements with your customers.
  • Customer Satisfaction: Set targets for customer satisfaction and measure against those.
  • Customer Advocacy/Influence: Track customer sentiment via direct feedback, social media, or metrics such as Net Promoter Score (NPS).
  • Attrition: Set targets relating to different causes of attrition to determine whether the CRM is delivering expected improvements.

Operational Performance

  • Usage Rate: A CRM system is only as good as its users. Set adoption and usage goals for each department.
  • Employee Satisfaction: Target and track areas where employees are expected to experience improvements in their work, such as collaboration and depth of insight.
  • Lead Quality: Set standards for lead qualification and opt-outs, and measure the quality of leads that pass to sales via automation.
  • Automated Outreach: When you use CRM to prompt customers based on data signals, measure the performance of those campaigns.
  • Interaction Intervals: Is the CRM helping you keep customer relationships fresh?
  • Speed of Response: Are customer service representatives responding faster with better information?
  • Fulfillment: Measure whether the CRM is helping you complete post-sales operations faster.
  • Payments: Use the CRM to follow the customer journey to the end, and apply time-to-payment metrics.
  • TCO: Set a budget for CRM implementation, maintenance, and growth, and measure against it. Target cost savings related to the CRM deployment and measure for improvements.

Instrumental in our Upgrade

Mark was instrumental in our upgrade to the latest version of GoldMine. Not only did Mark do the data conversion but he has subsequently resolved several issues that have surfaced with the GoldMine alarms & the daily backup process. Mark has been very accommodating to any contact I have made to either ask questions or resolve an issue. Previously we have worked with Bob thru the years to support our GM application and again very pleased with the support offered by Bob. I would highly recommend W-Systems Corp. for support.
