Figure 1 from the full report illustrates these categories:

Modular availability, connectors, app ecosystems, and as-a-service commercial models have made CRM suite adoption easier. The supplier landscape has been evolving quickly, and with the pandemic reinforcing urgency for digitization and automation of CRM processes, we expect accelerated adoption.

The CRM market is changing. Today most CRM suite vendors are offering modular sales, customer service, and marketing functions, enabling organizations to pick solutions that are best tailored to meet their needs. They are also expanding their offerings with plug-and-play apps, which enables enterprises to customize and extend the functionality of CRM suites. Finally, an array of ready-to-use connectors is enabling easy integration. These factors have boosted adoption of CRM suites, which saw a 13% growth rate in 2020.

These and other trends are explored in our new Customer Relationship Management Suites 2020 RadarView™ report, a comprehensive study of enterprise CRM suite adoption trends and the vendor landscape. The report helps companies identify the right solutions to improve their customer relationships. It also offers detailed capability and experience analyses of CRM vendors to assist enterprises in identifying strategic partners for their customer relations transformation journeys. The report ranks the leaders, innovators, disruptors, and challengers in this space.

Avasant evaluated 20 vendors offering CRM suites, using a rigorous methodology against the dimensions of product maturity, enterprise adaptability, and innovation roadmap. Of those 20 vendors, we recognize 11 that have brought the most value to the market during the past 12 months.

The report recognizes CRM suite vendors in four categories:

  • Leaders: Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, SAP
  • Innovators: Hubspot, Infor, Zoho
  • Disruptors: Pegasystems, SugarCRM
  • Challengers: Avolin, Creatio

“Forward-thinking companies have long used CRM suites,” said Avasant Research Leader Saurabh Verma. “Now, modular availability, connectors, app ecosystems, and as-a-service commercial models have made adoption easier than before. The supplier landscape has been evolving quickly. And with the pandemic reinforcing the urgency for digitization and automation of CRM processes, we expect to see accelerated adoption.”

Key findings from the report include:

  • Demand for CRM suites has increased due to the need for low-touch operations that COVID-19 has created.
  • Availability of CRM suites as a standalone product and ready-to-use connectors is facilitating enterprise adoption.
  • Small and midsized businesses are now at the forefront of CRM suite adoption, as the SaaS model enables low-cost implementation.
  • CRM suite vendors are leveraging AI technologies to automate judgment-intensive processes.
  • CRM suites are enabling robust process automation solutions via acquisitions, partnerships, and in-house development.
  • CRM suites are leveraging virtual assistants to enhance clients’ experience.

SANTA MONICA, CA, January 13, 2021 – OTC PR WIRE — Wanderport Corporation (OTC PINK: WDRP), a premier producer and distributor of food, beverages and consumer products with a focus on wellness and healthy lifestyle, today announces update of its business development and outlines near term growth plans.

The Company had recently undergone evaluation of its existing business and as a result made some changes to position itself as a key solution provider with an emphasis on wellness and healthy lifestyle.

Wanderport’s main website will be redesigned and will initially consist of three divisions: coffee and tea, consumer products and healthcare. Additional divisions will be added in the future as acquisitions or mergers are made.

Coffee and Tea

The sales of Sapa coffees and teas remain strong.  However, to better optimize sales, the Hemp and CBD product line will be reduced to a few best selling items.  The final product line will also be repackaged and better optimized to sell online via Amazon and other venues.

The Company plans to introduce two new products, hemp matcha tea and a unique non-hemp coffee.  The non-hemp coffee will have a crypto component.  Details are being finalized and the product introduction will be announced before the end of this month.

In response to the increasing inquiries on CBD products, efforts to expand sales into retail channels are also being planned.

Consumer Products

Consumer products will continue to be offered through Wander Brands.  The categories will be narrowed down to supplements, pain management and mental acuity products.  Supplements will consist of natural or vitamins to boost immune system.  Pain management products will aim at providing relief ranging from muscle soreness to arthritis to chronic pain.  Mental acuity products will help with mental clarity, memory and healthy brain function.

Healthcare

The Company plans to form a new division that offer healthcare products and services.  Initial focus will be in the areas of therapy, wellness, pain management and mental illness.  The Company will leverage technology to offer solutions in telehealth and remote patient monitoring.

The Company will also work with various non-profit organizations to provide assistance in the area of cancer, Alzheimer and mental illness.  Additional information regarding the healthcare initiative is forthcoming.

Online and Social Media Presence

For better communication and branding, the Company will also enhance its websites, online stores and social media presence.  Redesigning of the existing sites are underway and will be updated in phases in the near future.

The Company plans to use social media more actively to provide incremental updates between major press releases.

Customer Reward Programs

The Company will enhance its customer reward program and various promotional offerings to reward loyal customers and supporters as well as to entice new customers to try its products.

The Company will also introduce a digital token as rewards for purchases.  Tokens can eventually be redeemed as discount for purchases or for another token such as Bitcoin.  Additional information regarding the Wanderport token and its use will be provided in the near future.

About Wanderport Corporation:
