CRM – Not just saying “out of a box” but also meaning it! – Guest Blogger, Marina Lumley

In my 18-year career in Marketing, CRM has been an ongoing discussion point.  Usually because of its investment and commitment level required.  In a business I consulted for about 2 years ago, they had invested over 1 million pounds in their database but couldn’t access it in an easy way. In the end they had to plug Microsoft CRM in, just to be able to run reports and queries.  Oh how the world has changed – and is changing.
