improveit! 360 Announces Verification of the ROI in CRM with New Study from Nucleus Research

According to the independent firm Nucleus Research, an investment in CRM software creates a huge return for businesses and an even greater return for home improvement companies using improveit! 360.

Columbus, OH, September 18, 2014 --( According to the independent firm Nucleus Research, a business investment in CRM software now returns $8.71 for every dollar spent.

In 2011, Nucleus conducted studies to see the ROI companies were getting from CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems. They found CRM software was driving greater sales productivity, improving marketing effectiveness and accountability, and boosting customer service results.

At the time, companies were seeing an ROI of $5.60 on every dollar spent. That result has jumped 1.5 times in the past 3 years – a result Nucleus was not expecting:
"In most cases, companies making new investments in software to replace or complement existing solutions get smaller incremental returns, because they’ve already gotten a big return from their initial investment. However, Nucleus has found this not to be the case for CRM."

According to Nucleus Research, leads the pack in their latest Value Matrix – a ranking of CRM vendors based on functionality and usability:
" continues to trend upward, widening its lead against Oracle and other vendors."

According to their case studies, Nucleus has shown that users are exceeding expectations when it comes to returns on investment.
