A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system is valuable to an organization when its users happily run their day-to-day activities within the platform. But when six in ten (58%) marketing and sales leaders think their CRM system wastes money, organizations must adapt to both opportunities and threats.
CRM systems have not delivered on their promises for too long, which caused marketing and sales departments to fail in working together to put the customer first. By Letting the platform do the work, Sugar Sell goes beyond the already traditional 360-degree customer view and makes CRM the engine that drives high-definition customer experiences (HD-CX).
Take a look at the latest and greatest product innovations we’ve added to Sugar Sell to help our customers succeed.
Artificial Intelligence to Supercharge Sales
HD-CX means mastering the ability to understand your customers’ struggles and aspirations. Since you rarely get a second chance to make a good impression, you have to take advantage and understand the context, which is indispensable in supporting exceptional experiences.
Including the artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities of SugarPredict into Sell enables you to understand the context better and own the future. It’s important to know that AI is more than just simple automation.
A proper AI-fueled customer relationship system can aggregate data from different sources, including in-house sales, marketing, and service tools. It interprets and identifies patterns in customer interactions. It can also compile customer data with open-source database information to offer further insights into customers, their preferences, chances to convert, and likely interactions.
The addition of sentiment analysis empowers sales reps to know each customer and prospect emotional state and intent, driving emphatic engagement. By providing teams with an understanding of intent, sales can be prompted to the next best action (e.g., present a save-the-sale offer or take an opportunity to upsell), while giving sales managers time to prevent lost sales or customer churn.

Let Sell Automate Customer Experience
One common problem of traditional CRM systems is that they only offer a fragmented view of the customer journey. Without context-rich information, it is no surprise that the customer journey becomes broken, the customer becomes frustrated, and the business has no idea what went wrong—51% of sales and marketing leaders don’t understand why customers leave.
To overcome this blockage, they need to go back to basics and understand if the customer experience is fundamentally built with the customer journey in mind.
With Sugar Automate, you can remove the busy work and roadblocks associated with following company best practices and complex business processes. Teams can execute sales plays, sales methodologies, guided selling, service processes, lead nurturing, and more in just a click.
