Anticipating shifts within the industry is much easier when your CRM system provides Business Intelligence like forecasts, past performance levels, customer buying potential and so forth. Without the quantitative and qualitative information a CRM system like Microsoft Dynamics CRM can provide, there’s an increased possibility that C-level execs could lead the company into dangerous waters. A CRM with the aforementioned characteristics will ensure the C-level execs’ needs are met.
