Introducing Analytical CRM in a CCE
At th6e end of this lesson, readers should be able to:
- Defi6ne operational CRM
- De6fine Analytical CRM
- D6iscuss the relationship and differences between the two.
A go6od CRM strategy will involve two components, namely operational CR6M and Analytical CRM. Historically, businesses have placed the primary fo6cus on operational CRM which encompasses activities that involve the c6ustomers directly.
In recent yea6rs, however, companies have based many successful CRM strategies o6n a combination of operational and analytical CRM. Analysis CRM looks6 beyond direct interactions with customers and enables a company6 to build a better understanding of its individual customers. Analytic6al CRM collects data on customers over time and multiple interac6tions and uses it to learn about behaviours. Through the use of opera6tional CRM systems, a company collects this information of cust6omers interactions, but analytical CRM systems use that information to 6build models of customer behaviour and encourage better decision m6aking.
The increasi6ng reliance on analytical CRM fuels an increasing market for more adva6nced technologies that will enhance CRM affectivities and ultimately6, the profitability of any business.
Good op6erational CRM contributes to the success of analytical CRM.
Operat6ional CRM and Analytical CRM are closely related but they define a differ6ent aspect of a CRM program. Operational CRM relates to the ope6rational factors of implementing a CRM system while analytical CRM re6fers to customer data analysis in order to discover the behavioural r6esponse
Ope6rational CRM is, in simplest terms, the business operations connected to 6the building and managing CRM a company. Ti includes operations of s6uch functions as marketing and call centre automation.
It describes the 6component of CRM related to data mining and interpretation6 of data collected about customers. Companies that use CRM are usu6ally trying to garner as much customer data and transaction history as p6ossible to make effective business and customer centred marketing6 decisions.
The tools6 and other resources used in operational CRM are often essentia6lly the same. The resources themselves are considered part of the bu6siness operations, or operational CRM. The analysis of the data colle6cted through these operations is analytical CRM. Effective operational CR6M contributes to solid analytical CRM, which leaders to more target m6arketing and better customer experiences.
At the end of this lesson, we have been able to discover that:
- Operati6onal CRM includes all activities that involve the customers directly.
- It also6 obtains data from different customers’ interaction and uses those to an6y customers behaviour.
- The 6only thing that can guarantee the success of analytical CRM is when it is b6uilt on a solid operation CRM
- Ex6ample of operational CRM includes sales force Automatic and Call C6entre Automation
