We reached out to a little over 1,000 CRM admins across the globe and across industries, and we tried to understand their daily work life. The survey revealed interesting insights on the core tasks performed by the successful CRM administrators.
Irrespective of the industry, CRM admins face some common challenges and employ similar strategies to ensure a smooth CRM experience for their users. Customer-facing sales teams rely on a CRM for valuable, data-driven insights that they can base their business strategies on.
