To compete in today's competitive marketplace, customer focus is no longer simply nice to have—it's a fundamental mandate. This book is a manager's best friend, providing both a primer and a how-to guide to defining and implementing Customer Relationship Management. It shows you:

  • The various roles CRM plays in business, and why it's more important than ever
  • The range of CRM applications and uses, from sales force automation to campaign management to e-CRM and beyond
  • The context of some of the popular CRM buzzwords
  • The differences between CRM and business intelligence, and why they're symbiotic
  • Why the customer-relationship failure rate is so high, and how to avoid becoming another CRM statistic
  • Case studies of visionary companies who've done CRM the right way

“We read this book at a time when we were relooking at our customer information strategy. One of the first things I had to do was ban the term ‘CRM’ from the project because of the vendor and industry hype and the confusion it created within the team. Jill’s book provides a strategic look at the topic from both a business and IT perspective. The insights she provides allowed me to focus on the strategic issues planning an enterprise-wide, customer-focused solution. And yes we are once again using the term ‘CRM’.”

         —Kevin Bubeck, Director, North America Information Strategy, Coca-Cola

“Jill is one of the few people who has been at the forefront of every stage of CRM development, from the early days of data warehousing, through business re-engineering, to sales force automation and e-CRM. This makes her uniquely qualified to write about how it should all come together. The reader will be rewarded with advice drawn from real-world experience—both successes and failures. I shudder to think at the dollars that have been wasted over the years on CRM projects and how much will be wasted in the future by executives who won't read The CRM Handbook.”

        —Brian Hoover, President, TouchScape™ Corporation

The CRM Handbook provides an outstanding roadmap for putting human contact—relevant, accurate, informed human contact—back at the heart of the business-customer relationship. That's the challenge and the sole goal of Customer Relationship Management.”

         —Charles D. Morgan, CEO and Company Leader, Axiom Corporation

“Jill Dyché has produced a wide-screen, comprehensive picture of CRM that also focuses on key issues that matter to CRM users. This book is written for those who are time-constrained and quick on the uptake—everyone from the CEO to the marketers and technologists who will evaluate, implement, and benefit from CRM initiatives.”

         —Peter Heffring, President, CRM Division, NCR Teradata

“Jill has masterfully compiled scenarios, resources, references, definitions, and insightful recommendations about how to remain customer-focused across the enterprise functions. The book can be used as an educational tool, reference guide, and resource for short-listing technologies to evaluate.”

         —John Earle, President, Chant Inc.
