 The Best CRM Software to Increase Customer Loyalty in 2023 Identified by SoftwareReviews’ Data 
(Toronto, ON) January 31, 2023 – SoftwareReviews, a leading source for insights on the software provider landscape, has published its 2023 Emotional Footprint Awards for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. Two providers in the enterprise space have been identified as Champions. 
The Customer Relationship Management (CRM) market has undergone explosive growth over the past five years as organizations seek to grow their capabilities and deliver a united customer experience across marketing, sales, and customer service. 
"The CRM market is continually evolving as new technologies and trends emerge,” says Ben Dickie, Research Director at Info-Tech Research Group. “For example, the rise of cloud computing has made it easier for companies to access and manage CRM systems remotely. The growing importance of data analytics has led to the development of more sophisticated CRM tools that can help businesses gain insights from customer data. Additionally, there is an increasing focus on mobile and social CRM, which allow organizations to engage with customers through mobile devices and social media platforms.”  
The top CRM software providers of the year have been identified by SoftwareReviews based on verified survey data collected from 3,081 real end users. These providers have received high scores on the organization’s Emotional Footprint Diamond. 
The Net Emotional Footprint (NEF) of each software provider is the result of aggregated emotional response ratings across the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, strategy, and innovation. The NEF is a powerful indicator of overall user sentiment toward the provider and its product from the software user’s point of view. 
The 2023 Enterprise Customer Relationship Management Software Champions are as follows: 
  • Zoho CRM+93 NEF, ranked high for including great security protection.
