Lean CRM

Customer acquisition and subsequent onboarding plays a critical role in every company, whether you are providing technology solutions , support services or even manufacturing goods.

One way to accomplish this is through Lean CRM, a simple process to focus your core CRM activities on your customers. You begin by seeing what customers value and then use this as the focal point to reorganise all your customer acquisition and onboarding processes in favour of your customers.

Background to Lean CRM

Lean CRM was developed by Toyota, in Europe, in response to the growing volume of touch points during the customer lifecycle. It allowed Toyota to identify customer behavioural changes, respond and increase customer satisfaction.  Lean CRM provides an efficient approach and encompasses best practices which are easily scalable, repeatable and by focusing on your customers it delivers significant return on investment and ultimately customer retention.

The objective of building a lean, simplified model is to collaborate across marketing, sales, customer success and after-sales in an enterprise.

This process starts by observing & recording the customer behaviour and reactions looking for clues (in sales and marketing) even while defining the target audience, profiling the customer followed by acquisition.  In an example of a software business, like ours, each of these touch points aids in gathering information to  be passed on to nurture and grow the customer from a prospect, potential, trial to a paid customer and finally to a raving fan.

Top 6 focus points to create a winning Lean CRM machine:

  1. Develop a well thought out lean CRM Strategy
  2. Embrace a customer-first mindset as an organisation
  3. Ensure Management & Team commitment
  4. Observe the right programs through customer feedback.
  5. Involve customer feedback with programs such as Voice of Customer
  6. Be open to iteration of the process
