CRM Overview

Client satisfaction is at the core of practice growth. The best way to make your clients satisfied is to ensure they know they are important to you. Without exception, all top firms hold regular face-to-face meetings with clients and follow up with pro-active contact; such a vital activity can often be overlooked due to lack of resources or time. DRIVE’s integrated CRM module has made this process very time efficient whilst at the same time reducing the cost of how this can be achieved.
