Hurdles faced by sales reps to adopt CRM

With an incoming of hundreds of travel bookings each week, the team faces a constant struggle to provide effective travel experiences to customers, as it takes time to understand the customer goals. An instant understanding is not provided by the data that is displayed.

A few issues faced by teams while adopting CRM are:

    • Delay in understanding customer goals:

      All sorts of travelers book with the agency, i.e bookings are made for different sorts like romantic, vacation, adventure, beach getaways, etc.All bookings visually look the same in the CRM. Whereas, the team has 80% of the revenue from beach getaway packages, and the availability to differentiate this among the travel data becomes nil.

    • Hassle during customer interactions:

      Customer service has a high impact on their travel business, and knowing which stage of purchase the customer is at is essential to excel at it. Even though the names of passengers are easily seen from the booking, more details passengers requires additional navigation to the respective module and record. This results in scanning through various modules of CRM to track and identify these customer and redundant and their contact information.

    • Lack in priortizing booking and travel information:

      Every time a new travel booking comes in, the sales reps take up the task of viewing the booking, accommodation and transport info to recheck or update details. In the steps to perform it, they get easily confused with the large amount of info available in the CRM. Hotels and flight info, available in random order, without any priority makes reps juggle between screens and scan them. Any changes further made needs to be communicated with the passengers via calls as well. This further takes up more time.
