Existing CRM VS Custom CRM Development
Regardless of where your organisation presently stands – one of the greatest fact is you stand no where without your customers . Without prioritising your customer needs , no enterprise can climb up the stairs of success . The more you get to know about your customer , the more it will help you to serve your customer needs . And that is the reason behind success of CRM softwares . To maintain a strong relationship and history and in order to provide them after sales support , organisation needs to necessarily invest on CRM softwares .
There are although plenty of options when the work CRM reflects in our mind like SalesForce, SAP , Sugar CRM and so on , but ultimately every organisation have their own custom needs and that is the reason you can prefer to develop your own custom CRM software , or choosing from SaaS CRM vendor .
Depending completely on your taste , you have the freedom to choose . Lets look at some of the key factors .
Customizing Your CRM
When it comes to CRM , solutions must be customised according to your organisation needs . Every business have their own specific requirement together with workflow and data models , and a CRM is more effective when it gets integrated with your own business aspects . The final choice rest in your hand whether they want a custom built CRM ( custom developed according to your organisation needs) or a vendor CRM( Usually developed for the mass market) .
The market leader in CRM which is providing highly customisable and agile solution is SalesForce . However they will definitely not build a CRM for you right from scratch . You will have to adjust yourself and your demands as per mass market demands or you can look out for some custom salesforce development experts .
But if your organisation stand totally out of the crowd , there is no other alternative than building a custom CRM .
Cost Of CRM Development
As we have discussed above , each option comes with customisation features , the real decision comes down with cost of investment each option will be requiring .
Usually CRM vendors usually charge for per-user subscription model which is obviously good for their pockets , but might not be for your wallet . If we say SalesForce , their per user per month cost ranges between $ 25 – $ 300 . It will be your monthly chained expenses which you will have to necessarily pay to them , and as soon as you stop paying them all your services and data will get barred . Also the CRM developed is for mass vendor , so you might be getting the features that is initially not required by your organisation .
Of course developing a custom CRM is also costly , but you will be able to get the features exactly as required and not additional features that is none of the use for you . All of the employees can have easily access to CRM if you want without any additional fees , but at the same pace it might be requiring more maintenance cost .
For SaaS CRMs , when any thing goes wrong in your company , the vendor will be responsible for helping you as a backbone for running software smoothly . That is the main advantage of choosing a vendors like SalesForce , who have the entire team who can understand your requirement and can troubleshoot the issue and keep things running , thus minimising the risk factors .
Whereas custom CRM development has high risk factor . Whether you are developing by your own , or outsourcing it to develop by someone else , make sure it is built in a good framework that can run smoothly or choose a recognised CRM software development company to develop your CRM .
So Who Could Customise Their Own CRM
Well that’s a tricky question . Everyone should customise their own CRM as per their needs no matter whether they have chosen vendors or can gone with the customised solution .
As the most important fact , CRM must be according to your organisation needs , and not like your organisation is molded to CRM vendors .
