Zoho CRM Plus – First Unified Customer-Centric Offering for the Entire Customer Lifecycle

Zoho CRM Plus, the first unified customer-centric software offering that takes customer relationship management beyond the sales cycle and traditional interaction channels. The new offering features an end-to-end, multi-channel approach that provides insight, context and information throughout the entire customer lifecycle — from the moment a customer clicks on an ad or engages in social media to when he or she buys and is retained as a happy customer.

“When the first CRM packages came into the market in the 1990s, Google AdWords didn’t exist, social media didn’t exist and companies had less of a focus on customer service”

Legacy CRM platforms were designed uniquely around sales force automation. Other companies started to fill in the gaps with email marketing, social media and customer support. This led to siloes of information and IT integration pains. If customer information is not stored in a centralized place, it is hard for companies to be customer centric.

Zoho CRM Plus approaches the CRM market from the perspective of the new digital age, where most customer interactions start in Google or Facebook, and allows companies to follow that interaction along every step of the funnel. By having everything in a centralized place accessible by every customer-facing member of the organization, Zoho CRM Plus allows companies to have an unprecedented level of context for each customer during every single touch point. Zoho CRM Plus also provides analytical tools to help companies measure and improve their customer-related activities.
