    Presentation Overview

    CRM is an Enterprise Strategy-or is it?

    Enterprises invest significantly in CRM, however, there are still problems with CRM implementations today. Once enterprises are enmeshed in their implementations, they realize significant business process challenges on two levels. Initially, CRM implementations can point to just how "broken" customer facing processes may be. Additionally, improvements in CRM operations typically point to an even greater disconnection between customer-facing processes and overall enterprise business operations.

    Should companies continue focusing on CRM as silos of functionality to improve customer relationship management? Alternatively, is there value in approaching a CRM implementation at the enterprise level? These questions will be explored during a session that will allow for interactive discussion.
