Article Featured Image

Recognizing excellence in the CRM industry is as much an honor for us as it is (we hope) for the recipients. With the sixth annual CRM magazine Market Awards, we take note of the industry's mainstays as well as its newcomers, the expected along with the surprising.

The following collection of profiles and pieces reflect the very best that the CRM industry has to offer--from vendors to customers, channel partners to analysts. We profile Influential Leaders and Rising Stars, and reveal the results of our comprehensive survey of eight industry categories. On top of all that, we also welcome our newest member of the CRM Hall of Fame. And, as the Awards package reaches its crescendo, we take special care to single out a trio of customers. Because, after all--in the end, isn't it all about them?

Please join us in congratulating all the leaders, winners, and honorees.
