A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system is an enterprise-wide system for communicating with an organisation's 'customers'. Whether your customers are external (ratepayers, suppliers, contractors, expert advisors) or internal (staff), they are a critical part of your business. Meier IT can build a CRM solution for your organisation to deliver complete and consistent customer information.

What Meier IT Offers

External Customers

  • An easily-used Request/Complaint System built to handle enquiries requiring a standard method of resolution. Examples of regularly handled enquiries include those relating to infrastructure damage and breakdown, bin collection, clarification of services provided, and application lodgement issues;
  • Fully customisable questions, resolution response times, interventions, activities, task allocation and responsibility, date and time stamping of calls and their finalisation;
  • Analysis of common complaints whereby enquiries and complaints are collated and summarised into categories to establish frequency and trends;
  • Processing and reporting of CRM data to extract additional information from the CRM system, such as scheduling response actions, progress tracking, full audit history of changes, reporting and task lapse time to complete;
  • Integration of the CRM with mapping software to identify property and infrastructure location. For example, 'pattern development' can be determined for graffiti sites and events, allowing a more efficient use of time with a combined clean-up;
  • Case management records for individual customers.

Internal Customers

  • A custom-built staff system to manage diverse human resource responsibilities;
  • Qualification application registers to manage formal and informal qualifications either held by staff or currently being undertaken but not completed (e.g. certificates, courses, tickets, licences for compliance and workplace health and safety requirements);
  • Systems for recording uniform allowance distribution;
  • Quality assurance for staff documents and agreements by reporting those that are not up to date and signed off.


  • Customer information is systematically recorded and managed, meaning that:
    • Customer interactions are dealt with efficiently;
    • Correct information is provided in a timely manner, increasing staff empowerment and customer and staff satisfaction;
