Application development and delivery pros who support CRM operations must navigate a highly fragmented CRM vendor landscape. This landscape contains solutions with sophisticated capabilities that many users can’t use or don’t need, including industry-specific capabilities. No single CRM vendor suite serves all sizes of organizations, industries, or business models. The CRM market is typically divided into four segments: enterprise, midsize, small, and specialty solutions. CRM needs for B2B companies and B2C companies differ. B2B interactions tend to be based on relationships with long-running interactions for considered purchases that can involve multiple stakeholders. B2C interactions are more transactionally focused.

Schedule an inquiry for further help.
