  • APAC and LATAM are emerging markets with shifting focus on SaaS, Mobile CRM, and analytics

CRM Supply Analysis: Supply Market Outlook 

Global/Regional Supplier

  • Mature and Diversified Market: CRM market is highly matured and key differentiator among CRM vendors is the ability to integrate cross-functional data. E.g., Customer data across sales, marketing, and customer support. In addition, buyers prefer vendors who has integration-ready partnerships and one-stop solutions. E.g., Oracle's Marketing Cloud should connect seamlessly with Salesforce sales cloud
  • Increase in SaaS CRM Adoption: There is a rapid shift in the CRM deployment model, as the buyers are moving from on-premise model to SaaS model, due to diversified user base, increased cost savings, and low maintenance

CRM Supplier Perspective: Vertical/Local Supplier

  • Experience Across Industries: In CRM, Tier-2 suppliers are also known as vertical specific suppliers. Enterprises are more focused on product capability rather than the supplier strength (revenue/client base, etc.)
  • E.g., Veeva and Cegedim are key vendors, who deliver SaaS based sales CRM module specific to pharmaceutical industry

Engagement Trends

  • Most Adopted Engagement Model Globally: Multi-vendor sourcing strategy
  • No One Size Fits all Solution: No CRM solution is complete and all CRM solutions require custom development or third-party applications to achieve 100 percent efficiency. An enterprise can have more than one CRM solution based on their business requirement, such as marketing, sales, e-Commerce and customer support. Due to constant change in business models/geo location enterprises are seeking better CRM solutions that can keep them ahead of competition and help achieve better customer service
  • Contract Length: 2–3 years, with an option of contract extension based on performance linked with SLA's
