A CPRM is a Community Partner Relationship Management system. Basically it’s like a CRM for organizational ecosystems. While a standard CRM simply tracks interactions with direct contacts like customers, a CPRM is designed to track an entire ecosystem—not just how an organization interacts with its own partners, but how all of them interact with each other.
