Customer Relationship Management of Whole Foods Market - January 20th, 2011

Customer Relationship Management of Whole Foods Market : Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFMI) is a foods supermarket chain based in Austin, Texas which emphasizes "natural" and organic products. As of September 2009[update], the company operates 302 stores: 291 stores in 38 U.S. states and the District of Columbia; six stores in Canada; and five stores in the United Kingdom.[4]

The company is consistently ranked among the most socially responsible businesses[5] and placed third on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's list of Top 25 Green Power Partners.[

There are significant business benefits which accrue from an effective, integrated Customer Relationship Management approach. These include:

* reduced costs, because the right things are being done (ie., effective and efficient operation)
* increased customer satisfaction, because they are getting exactly what they want (ie., exceeding expectations)
* ensuring that the focus of the organization is external
* growth in numbers of customers
* maximisation of opportunities (eg., increased services, referrals, etc.)
* increased access to a source of market and competitor information
* highlighting poor operational processes
* long term profitability and sustainability

Forward thinking organizations understand the vital need to maintain a strategic focus on CRM and to resource and manage it appropriately.
There are many and various systems available, and it is important to have a clear idea of your requirements during the software solution selection process, which for most organizations will also involve the selection of ICT service provider too, since any software solution, for all but very small companies, generally requires support for specifying, implementation, training and maintenance.

Siebel, Sage (who now provide the well-known Accpac and ACT! CRM solutions), and Front Range (whose product is Goldmine) are all significant and proven CRM software products companies. There are many others, and very many more ICT service providers through whom distribution and support is normally arranged.

As with any ICT project, ensure you work with reliable and knowledgeable advisors, with access to cost-effective proven solutions, who can help you to build and implement an effective CRM software and ICT capability.
