New Research From SugarCRM Reveals a Customer Relationship Crisis

gbafNews28

Struggling to get a clear picture of their customers, 49% of sales leaders in Australia say their CRM is costing them revenue

 

CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA – Media OutReach – 19 February 2021 – Fueled by lack of visibility into customer data, companies are facing a customer relationship crisis. Fifty-two percent of sales professionals in Australia believe that their CRM systems are unfit for purpose, while customer churn is costing mid-market companies an average of US$5.5M per year each, according to a new CRM and Sales Impact Report from SugarCRM.

The research reveals that many businesses lack the necessary tools to provide the kind of customer experience that will keep them competitive. Besieged with status quo CRM systems, sales leaders are struggling to ensure their sales teams are spending enough time with customers and can access the data required to build and maintain these vital relationships. The report surveyed 1,000 sales decision-makers in the US, UK, Germany, and Australia, and found that 49% of Australian sales professionals believe their CRM systems are costing them revenue — demonstrating the extent of the issue.

“Customer behavior has fundamentally changed and businesses around the world are facing a customer relationship crisis,” said Craig Charlton, CEO of SugarCRM. “Sales teams are bogged down with administration and stuck with an inaccurate picture of the customer with little advance notice or insight into customer churn. These findings are a wake-up call for companies relying on the market-leading incumbents in CRM with software that is tuned to steady-state and known customer behaviors.

The research found that 53% of sales leaders are fatigued and frustrated with the CRM admin burden placed on their sales teams, which is taking them away from customer-facing activities. Indeed, sales reps are only spending 54% of their time selling. The CRM and Sales Impact Report also revealed over half of sales reps in Australia (52%) reported their customer churn increased in the last 12 months, with 52% of respondents having trouble predicting when customers would churn. And upon reflection, almost half (48%) of those sales professionals reported not knowing why customers churned.

In addition, 50% of Australian sales leaders admit that they cannot access customer data across marketing, sales, and service systems, leaving customer-facing team members without a clear picture of their customers. The gap in customer data, the millions of dollars lost to churn, and the lack of insight, prevents sales and business leaders from acquiring the intelligence they need to make both vital strategic and tactical decisions. Companies that close the data gaps and improve the accuracy and completeness of their customer data, stand to improve retention, increase revenue, and gain more predictable business outcomes.

Vetter continues its successful performance at the 2021 CMO Leadership Awards

gbafNews28

Winning five core categories reaffirms Vetter as a trusted solution provider, particularly during globally challenging times

 

  • Vetter reaffirms its high performance in customer-critical aspects
  • Results reflect the positive experience of pharma and biotech companies in their daily work with the service provider — particularly during a pandemic
  • Winning five awards mirrors the company’s core value of customer partnership

RAVENSBURG, GERMANY – Media OutReach – 19 February 2021 – Vetter, a globally operating Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), was granted the 2021 CMO Leadership Awards in five core categories — quality, expertise, compatibility, capabilities, and service. The award, now in its tenth year, was given by the leading trade press publication, Life Science Leader. Vetter was also the recipient of the award in a variety of categories in previous years.

“Yet again, Vetter is honored to be a winner of the CMO Leadership Awards as determined by our most important judges — our global customers,” said Vetter Managing Director Peter Soelkner. “This recognition is of particular importance given the challenging and turbulent times we are all experiencing with the global Covid-19 pandemic.” Carsten Press, Vetter’s Senior Vice President Key Account Management/Supply Chain Management/Marketing added, “Winning this award in five key categories is a direct reflection of what we strive to project to our customers. It further demonstrates our stable performance for them and especially their patients.”

Unlike other awards where an application process takes place, winners of the CMO Leadership Awards are chosen according to a customer ranking system. The basis for this is their hands-on experience with the service providers they have actually worked with. Using this method of validation means results are not able to be influenced in any manner. As such, the awards honor true customer performance and signify that winning companies have distinguished themselves through a leading level of support for the needs of their pharma and biotech customers.

“These past months reinforced the criticality of the services and partnership models provided by CDMOs to biopharma organizations of this size,” said Louis Garguilo, Chief Editor and Conference Chair, Outsourced Pharma. “In fact, much of the drug development and manufacturing industry was sustained by reliable outsourcing in the face of a horrible pandemic. That reliability was a result of constant dedication to customers, and perhaps, one attribute above all — flexibility.”

About the CMO Leadership Awards

The CMO Leadership Awards is an annual event now in its tenth year. In determining the award recipients, Life Science Leader teams up with Industry Standard Research (ISR) which conducted the research. For the 2021 award, more than 70 contract manufacturers were assessed by 23 performance metrics in ISR’s annual Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking survey. Participants were recruited from pharma and biotech companies of all sizes and screened for decision-making influence related to working with contract manufacturing partners. Respondents only evaluate those companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. Through this level of qualification, survey responses are based on actual involvement with contract manufacturers and clear experiential data.

Headquartered in Ravensburg, Germany, Vetter is a family-owned, global leading contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) with production facilities in Germany, Austria and the United States.
