An on-premise Customer Relationship Management (CRM) offers several key advantages for business owners. On-premise CRM offers all customer related activity (including sales, marketing, customer support and technical support) that can be found in on-demand CRM,
Despite the initial purchase price, which is significantly higher than the on-demand’s monthly fee requirement, an on-premise CRM delivers an array of possibilities and utilization that is often more economical in the long run.
Benefits of On-Premise CRM
The primary asset of an on-premise CRM lies in the fact that once paid for, it is housed in and completely owned by the business for which it operates. This in-house ownership allows for an ease of flexibility and customization which often translates into greater user satisfaction for both employees and customers.
An on-premise CRM provides a degree of integration with a business’ present system components, which can be extremely beneficial for companies with specialized procedures or equipment. Whereas an on-demand CRM may require a company’s previous technological applications to conform to a rigid, uniform system for everyone, an on-premise CRM offers an ease of integration and customization to suit nearly any variety of needs.
Another valuable benefit associated with an on-premise CRM’s in-house location is security. Customer and company information is completely confidential, since there is no need for any communication to go across a third party. Similarly, with this same level of autonomy in the entire customer environment, companies can utilize their on-premise CRM to tailor any facet of the customer’s experience to suit their liking.
Long Term CRM Value
The long term value of an on-premise CRM is another boon which will likely prove itself. Over a prolonged period of time, the total cost of ownership will almost certainly be lower than that of the on-demand version. This economic practicality is sure to aid businesses experiencing rapid growth, as well as those with a degree of stability.
