According to a report from consulting firm Capterra, the customer relationship management (CRM) market is on pace to surpass enterprise resource planning (ERP) as the largest grossing enterprise software sub-segment. That growth statistic shouldn't be surprising – if your business has customers, chances are you've either implemented a CRM solution or you're thinking about it.

CRM isn't just a sales tool. The finance and IT departments, customer service representatives, even executives who want to analyze data captured through the solution need to know how to utilize its various components. How does a company that has invested in CRM make sure that various internal audiences are using the CRM solution correctly and accurately? Gamification could be the answer for many.
