Many companies are investing heavily in technologies to have a better understanding on their customers and maintaining close contact with them. However, CRM is only useful if organisation is willing to provide their customers regular updates and keep them involved and interested in organisations’ activities.
The business perspective recognizes CRM as an organizational strategy relating to the following:
(i) customer demographics;
(ii) understanding and predicting consumer behaviour;
(iii) segmenting customers into customer groups;
(iv) one-to-one marketing;
(v) analysing purchasing patterns of customers and
(vi) knowing who the customers are, where they are and what they need
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Singapore Café Pte Ltd wants to be the leading branded hospitality chain in Singapore and the region through carefully monitored service quality and product stands.
Today, we see fewer returning customers and new customers due to mediocre service delivery, lack of product variety and our market growth in the F&B (Food and Beverage) industry has been stagnant.
If we ignore these problems, more resources will be used to handle the complications which may cause us to further deviate from solving it. We will be using CRM (Customer Relationship Management) to evaluate existing strategies and further enhance it to fit the company vision.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

1) Enhance existing customers experience with Singapore Café and
