What is CRM?

CRM is an acronym for Customer Relationship Management. A CRM system entails all aspects of interaction a company has with its customer, whether it be sales or service related. It is also an industry term for software solutions which help enterprise businesses manage customer relationships in an organized manner. A simple example would be a database containing detailed customer information that management and salespeople can reference in order to match customer needs with products, inform customers of service requirements, and so on.

But no two industries are exactly alike. In the past, CRM solutions have been of the "One Size Fits All" mentality, each providing roughly similar functionality with widely varying results for each customer. Advanz's solution to this problem is to carefully cater to industry-specific needs. Building Baron is a CRM that has been customized especially for the Commercial Real Estate industry.

Even so customized, we recognize that each customer's business is different, and may need special modifications to fit their own needs. So Advanz will even further customize Building Baron for you quickly and efficiently so that you get exactly what you need.
