In life there are influences that impact the big picture; the same is true with CRM. At the heart of CRM, is a group of knowledgeable people who impact the prospects, industries, investors and mindshare of companies. These top influencers share their opinions and ideas to form the way we understand and use CRM. But where do they get their information to form these opinions and ideas?
The people who persuade the influencers are those highly experienced, trusted individuals who sit at the influencers’ feet. One of those who persuade the influencers is Louis Columbus of Cincom Systems.
“Columbus is truly influential in the relationships he has with the influencers he knows,” says Paul Greenberg, author of “A Guide to Influence(rs) Chapter 1.” “He is one of those people that influencers simply trust.” Greenberg’s “A Guide to Influence(rs) Chapter 1,” discusses the top influencers in CRM, where they fall into the scheme of things and who they get their information from, including Louis Columbus.
