If your company is growth-oriented, you know how crucial it is to maintain and grow strategic relationships and partnerships. You also know it’s easier said than done.

1. Beyond the point of sale. 

Building a business isn’t just about making the sale—it’s about what happens after. Nurturing your existing relationships with clients and collaborators is the key to meaningful growth. CRM platforms can be a powerful resource for organizing contact information, but relationship-mapping software goes the extra step, offering the functionality you need to stay connected with and, just as important, utilize, those contacts for new business opportunities. 

2. The power of Big Data insights

Let’s face it: Your digital Rolodex is far too big to commit to paper—or to memory. But when it comes to getting your foot in the door at the critical moment, knowing exactly who knows who is a game-changing advantage. Relationship-mapping software quickly and easily sorts through this data, showing you existing connections and bringing you one step closer to the warm introduction you need.

3. Making the most of your relationship capital

Between college friends, former coworkers and other professional and social relationships, your network extends farther than you probably realize. Now, multiply that by every employee in your organization, and you’re looking at an enormous pool of untapped assets. By allowing you to visualize and leverage your company’s relationship capital at an enterprise level, relationship-mapping software helps ensure you don’t leave money on the table.
