The CRM trends for 2014 will be concentrating on what SME’s have asked for from their CRM, and what customers want to see from companies who use CRM. http://blog.mycrmgroup.com/post/2013/12/17/Top-CRM-Buyer-trends-in-2013-by-Software-Advice.aspx What SME’s are looking for in CRM solutions? At small and midsize companies, marketing automation and sales force automation are fast becoming trends in IT department purchases. Recent studies show that there is a substantial move towards pricing-as-a-service (PaaS), and it is thought that we will be seeing a lot more growth in this area in 2014. The consulting company Software Advice examined its exchanges with IT decision makers over the course of 2013. They found that 91% of buyers wanted a best-of-breed solution as opposed to combined or multiple products. This result follows a trend that is echoed in both business and customer technology – if it is simple, efficient, and powerful, it will likely be a success. The key statement as spending is always restrained in early post downturn days is “Value For Money” for the past year MyCRM have been offering a number of key SME solutions that include Email marketing and CRM from Microsoft Dynamics for as little as £50 per user. Business owners have reported back to say they agree that a fixed cost service is always best and helps plan expenditure.
