The Union sociale pour l’habitat (USH) is the representative organization of the Hlm movement, which represents nearly 650 organizations through 5 federations. It centralizes all the information of the sector and is the privileged interlocutor for the public authorities.
To better communicate with its network of members and manage it efficiently, USH relies on E-Deal CRM by Efficy, a solution to which 15,000 users have read-only or read/write access.
CRM, a human challenge
Union sociale pour l’habitat deployed E-Deal CRM by Efficy in 2017 to replace the existing database that was only used as an address book.
The CRM was then the first step in getting users to collaborate better. So, to encourage CRM adoption, the project teams talked with users to understand their challenges and explain the benefits of CRM.
Now, with hindsight, it’s a successful gamble for USH. A change in mentality has gradually taken place and USH employees are able to take advantage of easier network management, information sharing, more targeted communication campaigns, etc.
The CRM is at the heart of our members' knowledge. All organizations have access to our directory and can update their information directly. We also use it to send emails and organize our professional days.
