Unknown Facts About CRM Intelligence Management Cycle


A four process illustrates the CRM Intelligence Management Cycle which are a collection of data, analysis, action and effective management of the process. In this article, I want to look at the four processes involved in CRM Intelligence management cycle. Follow me as we will look at that together in this article.



As an Organisation formulates the data warehouse in order to cater for customer data, the Organisation must be able to evaluate and establish a mechanism that will cater to all customer data throughout the entire Organisation

The Organisation must be able to cater for all operational and financial data of the customers in order to enable the Organisation to meet customers’ demands and understand the financial implication of current and future behaviour of the customers. The Organisation needs to gather as much as possible about the customers in order to have an insight into their behaviours and most importantly how to make their purchase decisions.



After you have gathered all the data that you need, you must be able to analyse it. You should know that CRM analysis is different from ordinary analysis. This is because the CRM analysis is more specific and complex in nature. The purpose of analyzing data include:

  • Customer Behaviour and Preferences: You should know that the more an Organisation can have a complete view of customers, the better the relationship can be conducted and fortified. Understanding customer behaviour will enable the Organisation to come up with customers based strategies that will meet customers’ needs.


  • OPERATIONAL FACTORS: Analysis will enable channel capacity and design, sales effectiveness across multiple channels and channels effectiveness. It will enable the Organisation to know how their touchpoints are points and things that can be done in order to boost their effectiveness.


  • FINANCIAL FACTORS: This includes the study of customer profitability, cost allocation, consumption of resources to sell/service the customer e.t.c. In order to determine the key opportunities for improving profitability, and relate them to customer-related activities or operational activities.

In order to achieve this, there is a need for the Organisation to embark on a set of analysis and modelling tools. Analysis tools can provide the ability to evaluate customer profiles and behaviour, and identify communication potentials. In most cases, they also enable the evaluation of customer response and behaviour.


After the analysis of customer data, there is a need for action on the part of the Organisation. The Organisation must be able to plan and execute communication-based on analytical intelligence. The Organisation must be able to automate all types of customer communications from prospecting to multi-channel interactions over time.

In doing this, the Organisation must consider the uniqueness of every customer and the need for personalization of services for customers. The main thing that will determine this is the past behaviour of the customers.


Optimization capabilities can prioritize communications across all channels and ensure effective communications.

Optimization should be based on the priority of the message and the availability of resources to act within a particular time window. This should encompass all touchpoints such as direct mail, kiosks, point of sale, call centre, web, E-mail, ATM, Store/branch and sales contacts. Optimization is intended to reduce the conflicts that may occur in channels.



The Organisation must measure the effectiveness and impact of its CRM activities on a regular basis to ensure the meeting of its objectives.

There are different ways by which performances of CRM analytics can be measured which includes Campaign costs, Marketing campaign gross margin and Revenue, total customers in the database showing real profitability, Revenue and gross margins per customer in the database, revenue and gross margin from targeted customers and the percent change in CRM-related revenue and cost year to year.

The real value of CRM is its ability to identify customers at the point of their needs. They must be able to know what their customers want and give them exactly what they want. This will help greatly in reducing attrition in the Organisation.

If the Organisation can identify their customers at the point of their needs, they will be able to render personalized services to their customers. If the Organisation is able to meet its customers through the appropriate channel, it will enhance customer relationships which will ultimately lead to an increase in marketing success and customer loyalty.

Above all, with analytical CRM, an enterprise-class data warehouse and a well-formulated knowledge of the customer base, an Organisation will be able to satisfy the interest of its shareholders and stakeholders.
