Customer Relationship Mgmt Definition: CRM extends the concept of selling from a discrete act performed by individuals to a continual process involving every person in the company. It is the art/science of gathering and using information about your customers to build customer loyalty and increase customer value. It is a customer-centric business philosophy where customer relationships – human relationships – are the ultimate driving force.
