Kustomer, Inc. is a new, CRM startup that is based in New York. This year-old company has received $10 million in Series A funding that will allow Kustomer to further market and develop its CRM technology that is aimed at small and medium sized businesses.
The founders, Brad Birnbaum (CEO) and Jeremy Suriel (CTO), also found Assistly in 2009, as a provider of online customer service technology. Don’t recognize the name? Well, they sold it to Salesforce Inc in 2011, and it was re-named Desk.com. This helped the pair to better understand the realm of CRM technology and makes their new Kustomer CRM very promising.
Their SaaS-based customer relationship management software is intended to help SMB sales representatives use different sources of information about their customers in order to interact with them better and form lasting relationships. This software-as-a-service will allow users to access a vendor’s technology through a web browser as opposed to having to deploy it on their own infrastructure.
Since customer relationship management is one of the most important and fundamental aspects of a successful business, Kustomer, Inc.’s new CRM is something that any small to medium business owners should take into consideration as they shop around for a first-time or replacement CRM software.
With this CRM, a business can have a simple but powerful interface that will provide a full summary and understanding of their customers as real people rather than numbers and stats alone. Ditching outdated point solutions, Kustomer plans on this software model to better manage and get to know your customers in order to provide better services as well as retain their patronage.
