RELATIONSHIPS

No other CRM firm can offer the benefit of our established network and relationships.

Crossroads CRM believes in the power of strong relationships.  We understand the time it takes to establish meaningful relationships.  This concept alone can make the difference between a successful or unsuccessful project outcome.  Since we have intimate connections with the people and landscape within our geographic region, we are able to offer a level of service that is not only unique, but unparalleled.

AFFILIATIONS

We have established relationships with the majority of government agencies, environmental consulting firms, academic institutions, conservation organizations and other public agencies with interests in natural and cultural resource management.  This allows us to work more efficiently and from a better-informed position.  It also strengthens our project methodologies and outcomes, as we rely on the power of our established network for support.  This ensures our ability to deliver excellent service and products.
