BURLINGAME, California, Feb. 15, 2007—CRMGuru.com, the global thought leader in customer-centric business, has launched a completely redesigned web site, using Web 2.0 principles and a new content strategy. CRMGuru also announces the additions of new members to its prestigious guru panel.
The customer management portal (www.crmguru.com) continues CRMGuru’s focus on thought-leadership aimed at C-level executives but with a number of important improvements: a fresh new look and feel; the overhaul of the content system to improve navigation and interactivity; and the introduction of blogs and news.
“We’re excited about the new design, which has been enthusiastically received by our audience,” said Bob Thompson, founder of CRMGuru and CEO of CustomerThink Corp., the owner of CRMGuru.com. The cutting-edge content system takes CRMGuru into Web 2.0. “The new site allows us to cover all areas of customer management, from strategy to technology, while making it easy for our site visitors to contribute content and find relevant information quickly.”
A new content categorization and navigation scheme gives visitors the ability to access articles and blogs most relevant to their leadership positions; a facet of customer management; or their industry. A news function allows industry participants, such as software vendors and service firms, to easily post press releases.
Kicking off new blogs on CRMGuru are several members of the guru panel, including Jim Barnes, Jay Curry, Graham Hill, Paul Greenberg, Dick Lee, Bill Price, David Rance and Bob Thompson (see www.customerthink.com/gurublogs). “We’ve designed CRMGuru as a giant blog so that authorized bloggers can post their thoughts any time to appropriate categories, and others can comment and interact,” Thompson said.

Several new experts are joining CRMGuru’s lauded team of panelists. For 2007, the guru panel is made up of an Advisory Council of world-class consultants, educators and researchers and a Business Council of executives responsible for leading customer-centric change within their companies.
