Industry Specific/Vertical Market CRM Solutions
More and more vendors are developing demand-driven Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software solutions for specific vertical markets. The cries from various markets for dedicated CRM solutions are finally getting heard.
In the past one had to accept that most CRM’s were only going to cater for about 60-80% of your needs. You might even have had to fund development of specific add-on’s for yourself (only to find the vendor running off and selling the sponsored product to all your opposition).
Hopefully your industry is catered for below. If you are aware of other CRM’s for your industry, we’d love to hear about them.
To find out more about what kind of CRM best suits your business, we suggest you try our CRM Finder. Part I will identify what type of CRM you should consider; Part II will make actual recommendations. Go to our CRM Needs Analysis here..
