CRM today is much like BPR in the 1990s. It is the strategy of the 21st century. Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, but few are doing it in a way that will reap long-term benefits. And while billions are being spent worldwide, as yet there is not one case study of a true CRM focused company that is achieving major business success. Why?
Three years ago Quest Media introduced the National Customer Service Awards. The philosophy was to research, recognise and reward organisations that were pushing the barriers of customer management to new limits. Written by the editor of Customer Management magazine, this book draws on Quest's research to reflect the current thinking behind today's front-runners in the customer management field. The authors challenge accepted thought processes and give realistic timeframes for implementing the innovative thinking that will produce tomorrow's Customer Management Excellence.

"Customer Management Excellence determines the processes required for organisations to embark on service excellence programmes. It is designed to reduce the time of implementation from years to months, and discusses new thinking behind the emergence of customer service as a differentiator as well as exploring future trends. This is very much a ;How To; book aimed at giving the reader a real competitive advantage. The case studies reflect the innovation, motivation and determination of some of the nation's leading players in their pursuit of service excellence. Customer Management Excellence is packed full with ;readiness checklists; enabling organisations to evaluate what needs to be put in place before embarking upon the service excellence journey. Customer Management Excellence case studies focus on organisations who have achieved recognition through the National Customer Service Awards, an awards programme that runs in close association with Customer Management magazine. Both the National Customer Service Awards and Customer Management magazine fall under the umbrella of media and publishing company Quest Media."
