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.

Great CRM Partner!

We brought on W-Systems to take on a very complicated CRM upgrade. We chose W-Systems due to their knowledge around our system, and they had the resources to execute. Their PMs, dev team, customer service, and sales teams were all top-notch and responsive to our needs and feature requests. I'd recommend W-Systems to any company looking for a SugarCRM partner.

Excellent Partner!

Responsive, helpful, thoughtful. They have been exactly opposite (in as positive of a way as possible) of the typical software sales approach. W-Sytems created my happiness with CRM.

Great Coding and Good Service!

Our company has used W-Systems for about a year now for customization of our SugarCRM Cloud environment. It's been a pleasure working with a group of developers that get the job done right the first time. From the Director of Sales to the Ops Manager to the programmers... all our first class.

Second to None

We have found that W-Systems' knowledge and response time is second to none. They are always willing to take the time and use the necessary resources needed to answer our questions, resolve our issues and teach us whatever we need to learn. They are patient, informative and proactive.

There Will Be Issues!

I highly recommend W-Systems. We have a complex solution that integrates numerous different software application and databases. This requires several different team members at W-Systems for support. Their knowledge and ability to work together provide the timely support I need. I’m not surprised there are challenges and issues with the complex technology support I ask from them, what is surprising is they always keep it working. Thank you!

CRMs are Personal and Complicated

CRMs are personal and complicated. With every project and every issue we have had, I feel that we were treated fairly and professionally. On the occasional misunderstanding or miscommunication, there was no gotcha but a desire to solve the issue fairly. The expertise level is high. Very good and respectful service.
