Oracle Hopes to Bring More Sales Focus to Social CRMMarch 21, 2011 No Comments
One of my favorite points made by Bertrand Duperrin in a blog post on social CRM (SCRM) I cited in my own post titled Social CRM Moves Focus from “Management” to “Relationship” was that SCRM occurs not just on Facebook or other social channels but also over the phone or in person, in any interaction where customers are treated as stakeholders. That’s easy to forget, as most SCRM discussions focus on social channels.
While social media is becoming an important channel for customer conversation, plenty of information is still conveyed via the old-fashioned channels mentioned by Duperrin. And guess what? They still trump social channels in some ways, not the least of which is the more direct nature of the communication.Blogs, Featured Blogs
