Social CRM is good for customers, but will it work for staff?

The idea that making social networks like Facebook and Twitter part of a customer relationship strategy makes sense in that customer interaction today doesn’t just exist via traditional communication channels like e-mail and phone.

Extending that collaborative relationship beyond the corporate walls to popular social media is a great way of keeping customers part of that sales process.

One issue that has been raised with this sort of functionality is that the natural competitiveness among sales professionals is not conducive to a collaborative environment.
