If you have a business and want to streamline customer relationships, then yes, you should have a CRM. 

A CRM is mostly used by salespeople, but it can also be useful for marketing teams or customer service. Your marketing team can easily measure return on investment (ROI) on your marketing campaigns and other activities. For customer services a CRM can help with customer retention rates and improve these through insights that these can give.  

A CRM enables you to get a better understanding regarding leads, prospect and clients. It acts as a reminder which year, day or time a specific task is due e.g. reminding you to dial that potential customer who asked to get a call back six months ago. This is something a standard notebook or spreadsheet won’t do for you. 

You probably have enough administrative tasks as it is taking up valuable time, and without a CRM to optimize that workflow, those tasks are likely to take you at least twice as long as they need to.  

That is time that you could have spent on getting more leads or build relationships with existing customers.  So, if you’re looking for an effective and time saving solution, you should invest in a CRM.
