Why Sugar is the Right CRM for Financial Services
Today’s empowered customers are causing many sleepless nights for financial services executives. Why? Because customer now want all their requests to be handled in real-time by a single employee, and they send these requests via text, via live chat and via social media. This is in contrast to the methodical and formal ways the financial industry communicated with customers for decades. Furthermore, in today’s digital age it is easier than ever for customers to move their business (and their money) to a competitor if their needs aren’t being met.
Even in this digital age, financial institutions must continue to work with their customers to build trust and provide a personalized, memorable experience during each interaction. They must also offer a seamless customer support experience where reps have all the information they need to be ready for any request. It must be just as easy to upsell a customer about adding an additional account as it is replacing a debit card.
How can the financial service industry meet the needs of customers in this era?
The answer lies in choosing a modern CRM that will help your firm exceed expectations of empowered and intelligent customers.
