Implementing a new CRM system is a far cry from just installing a piece of software. For most organisations, it marks a new beginning of sales automation, customer service excellence, real marketing power and a central hub for all customer data. Getting core elements right the first time is the key to a successful implementation.
Without specialists in Sugar who have hundreds of projects under their belt, key elements are often over-looked, under-funded or ill-advised.
Our expect consultants have been involved in every stage of over 200+ previous SugarCRM implementations, including planning, strategy, execution, configuration, integration, customisation, training and support.
What happens during a Requirements Workshop with Sugabyte?
By the end of the planned workshops, we hope to come away with a full technical specification of your SugarCRM system is to be built. Here are some of the key elements we aim to cover with most implementations:
Detailed analysis of current sales, marketing, and support operations. Consult on ‘new ways of working’ with Sugar
Discussions with key users about current business pain points and wish list for Sugar
Consultation of custom fields and their default settings, visibility dependency, drop-down values etc
Define all Sugar module configurations including fields, workflows, and views for desktop and mobile.
