CRM naysayers have it all wrong
The following is an extract from the article "CRM naysayers have it all wrong" by Matt Hines, www.searchCRM.com:
"Noted consultant Barton Goldenberg thinks the consensus about the state of CRM is dead wrong.
Goldenberg is president and founder of ISM Inc., the Bethesda, Md.-based CRM consultancy specializing in helping businesses formulate enterprise applications strategy.

While leading CRM vendors such as Siebel Systems Inc. of San Mateo, Calif., have worked hard to build vertical applications, Goldenberg said that so-called point solution providers will continue to establish themselves as the top designers of industry-specific tools. A prime example of this is Morristown, N.J.-based Dendrite International Inc., which specializes in pharmaceutical industry applications, he said......"
