To highlight the significant benefits of implementing CRM strategies, the book provides examples of successful CRM implementations from a broad range of business sectors. These implementations, presented in a case study format, demonstrate implementation processes, appropriate technologies, and vendor solutions that work. Wherever possible, illustrations are used to enhance the textual presentation.
