Analyze your business. What should be changed? Improved? How would you go about it? Document your goals, points and milestones within the project. And finally, set up a master plan for how you will reach your goal within the time schedule.
3. Organize a workshop
Mix people from different departments of your company and talk about how you all can improve the customer care and sales work.

How to manage your CRM system
As important as the introduction is, it is equally important to manage your CRM usage. Without input data you’ll get no output. Make sure that there is someone who manages the CRM system and keeps the usage high. If you feel that you do not really get out what you want of the system, it may be due to any of the following:
- Users do not use the key functionality
- Some users are kept outside of the system
- The system has not grown along with the company
- You are stalling in the same spot
- And many more…
- This page contains a smorgasbord of tips on how to increase the usage and take it to the level you want.
It is important to frequently educate and freshen up the knowledge of the CRM system, both for experienced and new users. We’ll be happy to arrange education sessions at your office. We also have education sessions in Lund, Stockholm and Gothenburg if there are only a few employees who needs an update or introduction.
