CRM Software Review Notes

We enjoy hearing all opinions from a diverse group. If you have first hand experience with any of the on demand CRM software systems referenced on this site, please feel free to send your input and comments to info[at]crmsoftware.asia.

In a 2008 on-demand customer relationship management software market research report, Forrester Research found the use of hosted software products in companies with more than 1,000 employees grew 33% from 2006 to 2007. The survey among 1,017 information technology (IT) professionals also identified the most popular hosted software applications to be CRM software, human resources software and collaboration tools.
While business executives and IT leaders continue to use multiple terms, such as software as a service (SaaS), on-demand, hosted delivery and cloud computing, to describe the subscription pricing and Web delivery of business software applications, the objectives and benefits offer strikingly close similarities, and include the following:
- Lower initial investment costs and total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Accelerated implementations, faster time to benefit and reduced implementation risk
- Eliminate or reduce the efforts, costs and risks associated with on premise system new version upgrades
- Free IT resources from non-mission critical business applications
- Outsource a function better done by specialists so management can focus on core competencies
- Increased vendor commitment, participation and response (tying ongoing subscription payments to vendor performance)
