Why is CRM Important to Libraries?
Members CRM is an approach to handling a company’s interaction with current and future customers. Libraries and resource centres today face new challenges in the form of smaller budgets, changing demographics and competition from the Internet and the media for the attention of their users. Just as businesses are realising that customer engagement is key to winning and retaining customers, libraries, too, need to realise the importance of customer engagement in retaining and increasing its user base. Engaged users can infuse libraries with innovative and relevant ideas, secure repeat use, and create willing evangelists to recruit other users.
A customer-centric approach via incorporating business CRM strategies to manage libraries and resource centres will help librarians to:
• Increase usage of resources and encourage repeat users
• Improve loyalty and create “evangelists” among users
• Better understand their user base, and anticipate present and future demand
What participants will learn?
*The importance of CRM
*Developing measures of customer engagement and fulfillment
*Identifying leadership responsibilities in CRM
*Developing a unique customer-centric approach
*Integrating CRM into operations and strategy
RM 600.00 for one person, RM 1650,00 for three persons, *PLF Library Members RM570.00 per person (Includes breakfast & lunch, training materials and certificate).
