Customer Relationship Management is both a business strategy as well as software. therefore more than a functional strategy alone. The key is getting closer to our customers and making it easier for them to do business with us. In today’s fast moving and highly competitive global commercial market, for companies large and small, the most important real asset with measurable long –term value is loyal, one to one customer relationships. Actually, most of companies do not specifically manage their customer relationships, so this asset can just slip away un-noticed till it’s too late.
