What is customer relationship management?

Customer relationship management (CRM) is the process companies use to manage interactions with customers. A quality CRM system prevents customers from falling through the cracks and ensures everyone from sales to customer service is on the same page.

It's more than just contact information. CRM data ensures quality customer experiences at each point of the pipeline. It informs marketing campaigns, the sales process, and the particulars of customer interactions. Customer data informs the CRM process, and finding the right CRM software helps streamline the entire process.

CRM tools offer functions such as customer lifetime value forecasting, customer support, and lead generation. Some tools offer customization so that organizations can anticipate customers' needs while reducing tedious data entry. They improve the marketing teams' efforts with new customers and nurture existing relationships.
