What is CRM?
CRM system is a software that manages the relationship between an organization and its customers. The abbreviation CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management. The main goal of any CRM is to ensure sales increase by optimizing business processes, improving the quality of goods and services, and effectively communicating with customers (after-sales service and technical support).
CRM captures and analyzes leads, stores information about customers, accepts complaints and offers from these customers and, based on all this information, provides you with the data, which allows for making data-backed decisions. These data is a great way to improve the quality of service and, as a result, increase sales.
