4. Data Governance in SaaS CRM

Organizations adopting SaaS solutions recognize that it is not only an alternative to traditional, on-premise solutions, but also that a completely new set of policies need to be devised for the unique characteristics of SaaS services.

The areas that demand attention are vendor selection, service level agreement, risk tolerance, data backup and disaster recovery, organizational skill and IT maturity, and cross-border data portability governance.

5. CRM Integration

An increasing number of companies demand their CRMs to perform as a complete sales tool and therefore, vendors have integrated the marketing platform with the customer management application. Services like email collaboration, voice/text integrations, email campaigns now can be operated from a CRM interface.

The CRM market is evolving rapidly with changing customer requirements. Failing to spot these trends could result in a loss of competitive advantages and suboptimal performance of your customer management application and your business.
