4 Ways a CRM Can Improve the Customer Experience

Customer relationship management (CRM) platforms are commonly used by sales teams to manage brand reputation and customer engagement. There are three types of CRMs: Operational, analytical, and collaborative. While all three types share common functionalities (contact management for storing information, interaction tracking for customer behavior history, and lead management for lead conversion), they all have areas where customer experience can be improved. Scott Clark, Web technology and SEO expert, shares an article on CMS Wire of four areas to utilize your CRM system for improved customer experience.

CRMs Allow Brands to Form Better Relationships With Customers. “Many CRMs provide the ability to send automated emails to customers, enabling a brand to remain in touch with a customer through personalized emails that deliver relevant content, offers, coupons, seasonal promotions, and incentives.”

A CRM Can Improve Customer Service. “CRMs provide instant access to every interaction that the customer has had with a brand, including chat history, purchase history, and customer service tickets. This enables customer service support staff to instantly pull up the customer’s details while they are interacting with them.”

Faster Response Time. “Many CRMs are using AI and process automation to identify customer sentiment through analytics, and facilitate more rapid responses to customer service inquiries and even social media posts. Brands are able to instantly respond to customer complaints and eradicate customer pain points before they can cause damage.”

Personalize Customer Communications. “By studying customer demographics, online browsing behaviors, purchasing habits, and social interactions, CRMs facilitate customer segmentation to a finer degree, which allows a brand to better determine how it approaches each customer.”
