Situation
I foråret 2011 sætter Nykredit Markets en række initiativer i gang med henblik på at forbedre kunde-serviceringen, bl.a. ved at indføres et CRM-system. Nykredit Market’s Business Support konstaterer hurtigt, at de eksisterende fragmenterede CRM-løsninger ikke lader sig binde sammen til en fælles platform.
