Welcome to the Concursive Blog

As you can tell by the new blog address and name, there have been a few sweeping changes around here. Well we’ve been busy! With great pleasure, today CentricCRM announces its new name, Concursive Corporation and a new front office solution, ConcourseSuite 5.0
For some time now, our company vision has been evolving to reflect a shift beyond the boundaries of “traditional” Customer Relationship Management. CRM has traditionally focused on aggregating large amounts of customer data into sales automation, marketing automation, or customer service silos. ConcourseSuite adds significant additional capabilities that help address the needs of today's businesses who must operate in an always on, always wired world. The product is a complete front office solution that includes standard CRM capabilities, as well as web content management, enterprise content management, and team collaboration.. We wanted the new name of the company to reflect this expanded vision.
Concursive is a name we created and is derived from the word “concursion,” which means “running together of people, things, and ideas”. The Latin root “con carre” gives rise to other words such as “concourse,” “concurrent” and “concur.” All concepts and ideas we believe fit with the direction of the company - specifically the word concourse - a place where people meet and come together.
The new application, Concourse Suite 5.0, (formerly Centric CRM), integrates CRM, website creation, content management and Enterprise 2.0 technologies. This tool provides an open forum for collaboration, debate, and productivity; a place where connections are made.
This blog aims to be a destination for similar connections: here we can collaborate and debate CRM, Open Source, and anything about bringing companies closer to their customers through technology.
