With countless leads, project opportunities and requests for information, managing a client rolodex can be a challenge for any construction business. Many contractors rely on software tools to keep track of opportunities, customer communication, client details and more.

So, what is a CRM?

“CRM” stands for “Customer Relationship Management”. CRMs are tools you can use to track every touch point with a client or homeowner. A CRM serves as your central repository for client details, contracts & bids, and contact information.
