In honor of Valentine’s Day let’s start out with a list of things to love about CRM:
1. It is a great way to organize all your customer data and manage your business processes
2. It is extremely extensible for all your integration and customization needs
3. It allows non-developer types (such as myself) to easily modify the system and build process automation
4. Lastly and most importantly – the COMMUNITY! The CRM community is awesome because everyone is sharing their knowledge through blogs and CRMUG. You are never alone in any issue or struggle! (And don’t forget the CRMUG Chapter meetings, come out to CRMUGDC on Feb 24)
Note: If anyone can think of a good way to tie President’s day to CRM please let me know so I can have a cheesy tweet for Monday J
The CRM MVP’s are particularly great members of the CRM Community. I want to quickly congratulate Mitch Milam on his 10thyear as a CRM MVP. Keep up the good work!
Now let’s look at the other posts from this week.
