This worksheet allows small enterprises to profile their Customer Relationship Management (CRM) requirements and to generate a rank ordered vendor shortlist. This shortlist serves as an input for the Request For Proposal (RFP) process. Vendor profiles are based on the Info-Tech Research Group's recent ITA Premium Small Enterprise Product Comparison, “Customer Relationship Management Solutions for Small Enterprises.” Specific worksheet functionality includes:
- Variable prioritization factors for both product and vendor suitability factors.
- Weightings to adjust the contribution of various suitability factors to overall vendor ranking.
- A self-sorted ranking list of CRM vendors. The ranking is based on user input.
This tool will help IT managers create a CRM vendor shortlist to choose the best solution for their enterprise.
