In this day and age, CRM software seems like it would be a given for an organization, but adoption of CRM is another story. CRM gets a bad rap from sales professionals. How many times have you heard these thoughts muttered under baited breath:

It's an unnecessary layer of complexity.
It's an invasion into the “personal” techniques that make them superstars.
CRM is an unwanted light that shines on their less-than-stellar results.

And it is not just sales. CRM can get sabotaged if management isn’t on board with the adoption. The clerical staff may see CRM as just another chore that gets handed to them.

Every office complex needs cleaning services. It’s not glamorous, but it is one of those business necessities like ink toner and paperclips.

For a moment, think about all the important, intricate steps and questions that lead to a clean office. Vacuuming, dusting, sterilization, waxing, kitchen cleaning. A million different office types, a million different combinations.
