With this in mind Business Network SW is delighted to announce that at the November event we have the seminar for YOU!

Selecting the right Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system for your business, and get the best ROI.

With so many different CRM systems available on the market, including some designed for specific industries, it’s hard to know which CRM system to choose for your business. And once you’ve selected your CRM system, how do you make sure it’s implemented well & on-time? Most importantly, how do you make sure you get the best Return on Investment (ROI)?

Michael Evans has 15+ years’ experience as a user, chooser, seller and project manager for CRM systems. In this seminar he will guide you through the key steps of getting the best CRM system and making it work for you:

  • Identifying why you need a new CRM system
  • Justifying the investment
  • Selecting the right CRM for your business
  • Choosing the best partner to implement the CRM system
  • Making sure you get the best ROI from your CRM system
  • Change management process to update your CRM system

All attendees will walk away with a set of tools, and knowledge, they can use to make sure their company has the right CRM system and is getting the most out of it.
