CRM Magazine Names Its 2019 Market Leaders

CRM magazine awarded its 18th annual CRM Market Awards in its September 2019 issue. The CRM Market Awards honor the leading vendors of sales and marketing technologies across nine categories. Additionally, CRM magazine named three industry individuals as Influential Leaders; six exceptionally innovative companies as Rising Stars; and three customer companies as Market Elites for their CRM technology deployments.

CRM magazine handed out a total of 66 awards for 2019. Of those, 54 were CRM Market Leader awards, which recognizes the leading vendors across nine industry categories. In each category CRM recognizes one Market Winner, denoting the company receiving the highest overall score from our analysts across a number of judging criteria; four Market Leaders; and a “One to Watch.”

“In this, our 18th annual Market Leader Awards issue, many of the same companies that have led the industry for years continued to shine. A significant change this year, though, was the expansion of the market to accommodate many new vendors. With innovation progressing at speeds that were unimaginable only a few years ago, new vendors are cropping up all the time, and their influence is almost immediate,” said Leonard Klie, editor of CRM magazine.

“On our leaderboards this year, we saw plenty of new vendors that have never appeared before. And even among industry stalwarts—companies that make the leaderboard every year without fail—some of those vendors gained spots in new market segments, having tailored their products to move up market, down market, or into new segments altogether,” Klie said further. “We congratulate all of the companies mentioned in the awards featured this year.”
