CRM is typically touted as a tool that can be used for increasing revenue, streamlining processes, and gathering information – all on one database. While all of these features help businesses develop and execute strategies, one of the major benefits of using CRM software is the resources it provides to improve customer experience
At its centralized system, CRM software allows users to gather customer data and share consistent records across the departments and teams within a business. Using this information, companies can then recognize potential touchpoints to improve relationships with customers in a scalable way.
Here are a few examples of how companies can improve customer experience with CRM:
Whether a customer is filling out a registration card or making an inquiry about pricing, all touch points are recorded in a CRM system and managed in one centralized place. Once the information is collected, it can be set-up to trigger a personalized email marketing campaign that sends the customer a personal message or a notification to the designated department so the company can respond appropriately. The ability to easily follow-up and communicate using CRM tools and resources, allows companies to improve and enhance the overall customer experience by coordinating interactions at each touchpoint.
CRM software automatically provides critical information to deliver optimal support to a customer. This includes sending customers quick responses through social media, email, or text, which allows customer service, sales, and marketing to address issues and questions more immediately. Customer support teams can better serve clients with quicker response times from the first moment of contact through to close.
Customers interact with businesses in their own way. A CRM platform looks for these trends and communicates the information to sales and marketing, which allows the teams to create a more personalized customer experience. For example, with email marketing, a CRM system allows companies to send an email that is specifically tailored to a customer’s interest or inquiry.

Opportunities for feedback
Existing customers are the best source for feedback. To learn how established processes and services can be improved, it is vital to follow-up and ask questions. Taking proactive steps to learn and identify points of friction or uncover details creating a positive customer experience is invaluable to building stronger customer relationships. With CRM tools, feedback can easily be gathered and analyzed to learn what you’re doing right or what steps need to be implemented to improve future customer experiences and to increase retention rates.
