If you are looking for success through the use of the internet and improved customer data, then as a business owner you owe it to yourself to make yourself profitable with the many readily available, IOVC technology tools. Years ago, these tools were only available to large business and in some case were shrunk or made to fit for medium business, but seldom for small business and definitely not for a single person business.

In this continuing series on IOVC, examining the "C" of IOVC (internet, office, VOIP and CRM) technologies, Customer Relationship Management has many meanings to many people and understanding the benefits to your business is critical to successfully using this technology.

The problem CRM is designed to resolve are situations where you have multiple data sources and you need to consolidate it in one place. The multiple sources from an IOVC perspective are input from the internet, from your office operation and from your telephone systems. These 3 sources usually have different inputs, email, voice and paper. The inputs come at different times and in most cases one person can use any of these IOVC communication avenues to work with your business. CRM solutions are designed to meet the wide range of integration requirements required for today's business systems, whether simple or complex, there are many benefits to having a CRM solution that integrates with your existing environment.

You can develop a complete picture of your customer and have all the information at hand regardless of the venue the customer used to work with your team. Regardless of how far away the information was obtained or the time it was obtained, your team can use the CRM system to view all customer contacts.

Additional office benefits are you can streamline your business processes beyond system and office boundaries. You can free employees from the manual activity of re-entering data. This time consuming task just disappears with the entrance of data one time into one place for all to see and use daily.

If you select a non proprietary CRM system, you can integrate your CRM with other information systems. This can save you a tremendous amount of time and money. This also means you can have your employees work offline or online and still be efficient.
Your CRM solution should let your developers integrate its functionality with third-party applications like Web services. If it's really open in standards then you can customize and integrate with just about any other product and service you currently use today. This makes for a very powerful solution.

Other efficiencies are ability to reschedule an appointment in real time and demonstrate to customers that you have fast and efficient operation. Keep customers coming back with related follow-up services and we all know that repeat customers are the best customers.

Productivity benefits are you can manage your time and activities with help from reminders and use pop-up reminders to help you manage your activities. Create a knowledge base of articles to collect and share your organization valuable information. Make an efficient FAQ system from real time data.

Your business processes are already operating this technology, it is just that you may be doing it on paper and pencil and napkins. To improve and gain these benefits you owe it to yourself to learn how to use and profit from CRM capabilities regardless of business size.
