Welcome back, readers, to the final installment in our Why CRM blog series! We recently launched a new website aimed at answering basic questions around customer relationship management (CRM) software called “Why CRM.” The concept behind Why CRM is simple. We believe that CRM offers solutions for countless common business problems, but more often than not, people start shopping for CRM without actually knowing why. They tend to look at features and functions without really understanding what they need.
PowerObjects has taken a different approach. We brought it back to basics and are getting down to the root reason people start looking at CRM. In this blog series, we answer that ultimate question: why should you choose CRM. In the series, we’ll cover three of the most common reasons people start considering CRM, such as losing key customers, making uninformed decisions that hurt business, or growing too rapidly and not being able to control the chaos. So let’s dive in and wrap things up with Part 3!

Leveraging CRM allows you to find, diagnose, and fix your business problems—and turn them into valuable opportunities.
Here are five of the most common bad decisions business leaders make when they don’t have good data to base those decisions off of:
As you can see, bad data affects multiple areas in an organization, and can lead to detrimental consequences. CRM takes your data and transforms it into something you can actually use!
