CRM for Professional Services Companies

In the services industry, strong client relationships directly correlate to revenue growth and profitability far more so than in product-based industries. For Customer Relationship Management software to achieve it's namesake description and other important business outcomes, consider CRM best practices, such as the following:

  1. Brand and company differentiation are critical to stand out and avoid commoditization and downward pressure on fees. CRM software can aid brand development with its customer intelligence sourced from historical sales data, Voice of the Customer programs, customer segmentation and brand metrics.
  2. Precision marketing is a best practice that conveys business outcomes messaging to highly targeted audiences and fills the sales funnel with more qualified opportunities. Marketing research shows that campaigns directed to the ideal customer profile (ICP) or segmented target audiences realize 2 times higher lead conversions, 38% faster sales cycles and 19% higher sales win rates.
  3. A sale methodology that leads with buyer insights, applies customer intelligence and solves for the customer is a highly effective best practice in the services industries. When CRM software is integrated with a sales methodology and prescriptive sales process, sales conversions increase by 11%.
  4. Project services delivered pursuant to plan, with transparency and clear measures of success, and achieve targeted business outcomes improve customer satisfaction by 49% and repeat business by 79%.
  5. Customer experience best practices drive customer affinity and grow customer relationships. When CRM applies these methods to harvest, distribute and apply customer data to interactions throughout the customer journey, companies deliver relevant and personalized experiences and realize a whopping 356% ROI.
  6. Revenue Engineering applies customer and sales data to make revenue generation predictable and deterministic. Sales growth research shows revenue engineering within CRM software acquires 2.1X more leads for the sales team, sources 2.4X more of the sales pipeline and achieves a 2X higher Marketing ROI.

These are only a few examples of using prescriptive methods to accelerate time to value, decrease risk, increase ROI and drive service company growth.

Implement with CRM Best Practices

CRM recommendations without supporting data are just opinions.

A smarter approach is to apply evidence-based industry best practices which are born from research findings and show what the Best-in-Class service companies (i.e., the top 15%) did to outperform all others — and how they did it.

Best practices drive service company growth using repeatable methods. They shift unsupported ideas that lack measurable execution to prescriptive guidance that achieves forecasted results.

And because CRM best practices are data driven, they can be modeled to show investment, cash flow impact, time to value and payback.

A single CRM best practice will deliver incremental revenue growth. A collection will deliver exponentially more.
