CRM Idol Updates
As of today we're down to 7 finalists—4 from the Americas and 3 from Europe/Asia/Australia.
The Americas finalists include Awareness, Compendium, Crowdtap
while the Europe/Asia/Australia finalists include Artesian Solutions, Self Service Company and Workbooks.com.
On another personal note, I'm super pleased to see Awareness make the list as I was privledged to be named their mentor. The 7 finalists will now prepare a 5 minute or less video to demonstrate their company and/or CRM solution, and from here, one finalist will be selected for each region by the combination of a popular vote from the community and the extended judges on December 5th.
The EMEA/Asia/Australia semi-finalists have been named, and the winners include
- Artesian Solutions
- Camp de Bases
- OnePage CRM
- SelfService Company
- Soft Solvers Solutions Sdn Bhd
On a personal note, I was fortunate to be named the mentor of Soft Solvers and am quite excited for their progress and continued good fortune. These 7 semi-finalists were down-selected from a group of 17, and in only a few weeks the semi-finalists will further narrow to group of 3 finalists.
