Praise for This Book
"Great insight on CRM. Must read for anyone considering implementing CRM or revive a wounded one."
"Our company recently implemented a well-known CRM, but after a few months it was evident it was not going in the right direction and something needed to happen. We desperately needed an effective phase-2 in place to be able to move forward. Thanks to ROI on CRM I can share with our team the steps we need to take to make our CRM a routine tool in our company."
- Bernie Diaz
"Great find for the small business owner! Expert & Concise"
"Fabulous, positive and informative! I felt the author is preparing the owners for the dedication required for the investment of a profitable CRM system. Everyone must be vested in the CRM decision and the charts visually represent his concepts well. An expert in his field and his "lessons" could be applied to all businesses."
“With this book and his system, Brian Gardner brings his unique talent for making the complex simple."
"He has the experience, with family business, in the world of industrial sales professionals and a full set of practical steps that will benefit all involved in their quest for winning in sales!”
– Mario Porrata-Franceschini, MRF Inc.
