What is CRM?
CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management. The term encompasses the strategy of systematically coordinating the relationships and interactions of an organization, based on the existing customer base and also potential customers. A CRM system is used in many companies for customer contact or even sales management. The CRM system ensures that information from all departments of a company is stored centrally and that every employee can access, change or expand the required data at any time.
Why is CRM so important?
A CRM system is of very importance when it comes to maintaining and strengthening customer relationships. The general goal of a CRM system is to maintain business relationships in the best possible way. But a CRM system is not only useful for strengthening customer loyalty. At the same time, CRM can be seen as a strategy that also improves and optimizes internal processes. In addition it is useful for effective customer acquisition and to increase sales. CRM can also significantly reduce administrative costs. However, the customer always remains the focus of all processes. Their trust and loyalty can be significantly strengthened and consolidated through communication via a CRM system.
How is a CRM system beneficial in practice?
A CRM system stores all relevant information about your current and potential customers in an internal database. This means that in any situation where you need the data for important decisions, you can retrieve it immediately. This permanently improves the quality of customer communication and makes customer coordination easier. Various tools of CRM systems can help, for example, with customer-oriented processes such as the so-called lead management. In this case, the prospects must be correctly assigned in advance and the persons responsible for the respective prospects must be clarified. In this way, a structure can be created with which no prospect is forgotten or overlooked. Customer care can also be made easier with clear specifications and defined processes in a CRM system. For example, a contact history of each customer can be built up, whereby the most important information can be viewed at any time when it is needed.
Why is a CRM system specifically suitable for lawyers?
If you are a lawyer, organizing and coordinating your client data is one of your daily tasks. Especially as a lawyer, you depend on long-term relationships with clients and a solid customer base. This is exactly why you should use a CRM system to facilitate your daily work. Information from business meetings or important appointments, such as upcoming court hearings and meetings with clients, should be treated as valuable. This means that this data must be well structured in order not to lose track of it. However, organizing the information, especially in paper form, becomes very cumbersome and time-consuming once a certain amount of data is reached. It can easily happen that some data is lost or that appointments are not sorted according to their due date, which means that some important events are overlooked. This usually leads to the trust with your clients being severely damaged. With a CRM system you can prevent this problem and you don’t have to worry about losing your clients due to unstructured customer management. Because a CRM system ensures that you always have an overview and can further strengthen your customer relationships, and at the same time easily acquire new clients.
