Press Release Summary: TR Cutler Says CFO's Have Vital Role in Sales and Marketing
Press Release Body: "CRM (customer relationship management) solutions can help address wild sales force practice by deploying a structure that does not allow the sales team to take control the business. The structure tells the representative what margins are required and what discounts they are able to offer the customer. The results are pricing integrity, sustainable profitability, and more accurate sales reporting. Ultimately these are CFO functions and overseeing the structure to ensure these corporate practices is part of effective technology selection to enforce better sales behavior," noted manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, who recently profiled, The Role of CFO's in Sales and Marketing in AccountingSoftware411.com. The full article can be read at http://www.accountingsoftware411.com/Press/PressDocView.aspx?docid=9619. According to Cutler, "There is a fundamental disconnection between sales and marketing and the CFO may serve as the moderator in the conversation about the efficacy and effectiveness in Advanced Contact Management (ACM), Sales Force Automation (SFA), Business Intelligence (BI), and Customer Service and Support (CSS). " The Role of the CFO in the Marketing Department Companies spend tens of thousands of dollars on trade shows and marketing promotions, but almost never close the loop to determine the effectiveness of marketing outreach efforts. While a strong vice-president, Marketing Director, or CFO should be paying close attention to these data, without a CRM (customer relationship management) solution and the appropriate reporting it becomes an impossible task. The result: instead of using vital (often limited) funds to drive additional business from profitable marketing programs, companies just continue with business as usual repeating the same programs without measurement of success.
