With an ever-expanding array of CRM technologies to consider, it is growing increasingly difficult for companies to focus on the ultimate goals of CRM - creating enhanced customer experiences and growing revenues long-term. A carefully considered CRM strategy can help match available technologies to the actual business processes required to achieve these goals.

During this Web event, Gartner research director Wendy Close will examine the results that mid-sized businesses can achieve with CRM, how to create a CRM strategy and how to best align CRM software decisions with that strategy. Close is Garter's lead analyst on customer relationship management strategies, technologies and suppliers for mid-sized businesses and mid-sized divisions of larger enterprises.
