Open Source And On Demand CRM

Jul 2, 2008
The popularity of CRM applications in a business cannot be denied at all. But now in the last few years, there has been yet another change on the CRM front. Traditional CRM software has been replaced by much sharper and precise on demand solutions called 'CRM on demand'.

Though many businesses have taken up on-demand CRM however, many are also moving away from it. On-demand CRM solutions may seem a good fit to start with, but businesses can soon outgrow them, find they are limited in what they are capable of, or that the business needs a more comprehensive CRM solution.

Both open source and on-demand CRM software systems are capable of integrating multiple tasks such as multi-channel collaborative selling, customer lifecycle marketing, integrated customer service, integrated fulfillment management, sales force automation, data tracking, data migration, data integration, etc. All customer relationship management systems serve as large databases for storing and integrating all customer information such as customer name, contact method, customer taste, frequency of visit and buying capacity. Both CRM solutions help to find reliable customers and plan better services for them.

Open-source CRM software systems are useful for all kinds of companies, as these programs customized to any CRM need. Large sized companies usually have special trained programmers who customize standard applications into company-friendly applications at appropriate times. For medium and small sized companies, it may be difficult to employ trained programmers; so they can prefer pre-customized CRM software systems. Many CRM vendors today customize standard software programs according to their client needs.

Discovering a suitable CRM software provider is not so difficult. Searching on Internet is the best option. Before going for any open source CRM solution, know your company needs and frame work. When hiring a hosted CRM provider, things to be noted are the data integration capacity of the provider and the security they provide to your tracked and imputed information. Deal only with a hosted CRM provider who uses special data encryption techniques for securing of your data. For both software systems, most CRM providers offer 30 day free trials, make use of these offers to find one suitable for you.
