Commence Corporation is a rare example of reliability, value and performance. When I think of Commence I think of integrity. The company offers a robust solution backed by a staff of experienced people.
Manjit Syven Birk, The True North
We had three specific requirements for the selection of a CRM system. First, a quality product from a company with a track record for successful implementations of their product and a return on investment. Next a trusted hosting service so that our data was protected. Lastly, a company that you could call and get assistance when required. Commence has met all three expectations. The product is much more robust then similar offerings, the hosting service is best in class and the customer support has been excellent. I highly recommend Commence CRM.
Hans Wegman, Memocom

We needed a solution for managing our customers, new leads and the sales process. We found Commence to be easy to navigate and use and very easy to customize on our own. This was very important to use as we did not want to hear that we have to spend a lot more money to tailor the system. They have provided excellent support with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. We are pleased with the value we have gotten from Commence CRM.
Mike Pieretti, WT Audio Installations
We were looking for a system that would become our core process for automating and managing sales. Our use of Commence CRM has done several things for us. First, it helped us to streamline our sales process from initial prospecting and logging of information to document management, quoting, support incidents and contract administration. Our decision to purchase Commence CRM was primarily based on its easy GUI and customizable views of information. I highly recommend this company and its product. Commence CRM has saved us perhaps $300k/year for 12 years, or a little over $3 million.
Peter Shoon, CEO , System Support Solutions
I bought Commence as a CRM solution for managing accounts, contacts and sales. The product is very good, has a robust feature set yet is intuitive and easy to use. It was also less expensive than others we looked at. I have now added the customer service application which we had planned from the start but held off until we were satisfied with Commence. The application is good and fully integrated with the rest of the CRM applications. It’s also considerably less expensive than competitive offerings.
We've been using Commence CRM for some time. It handles our in-house ticketing (reserved seating and general admission), rental events, estimates and invoices, patron database, rental client database, events calendars, employee scheduling, reporting, and so much more. It is solid, feature-filled, quick to learn, and incredibly flexible. Customer support is superb.
Paul Miller, Liberty Performing Arts Theatre
Commence OnDemand CRM works best for us because you can keep things simple, or go as deep as you need to with regard to day-to-day operations, sales tracking/projections and contact management. The features and tools in Commence software work the way you would expect them to. The difference with Commence is their support. With one call or email you're in direct contact with people who can handle any level of support, from application questions, to custom reports, and they are quick and polite about too ! This is what world class support is all about !
Commence has been a great partner for us and has done amazing work to support our business requirements.
Dennis Kasper, Managing Director, Information Technology, HARTLAND
We are excited to be on board with Commence CRM. The company took the time to fully understand our needs then did a fantastic job implementing the program and tailoring it to our requirements.

We are a large Real Estate firm and use Commence CRM for our business. It has been an excellent tool with good functionality that is not over designed. Very good filtering tools to get at data. Customization is a breeze and the speed in which the product operates is great. Cost per user is very affordable and customer support has been excellent. We have not used any software that has matched its usefulness.
Paul Elias, SVP, JBG Smith
We use Commence CRM to pretty much run our entire business operations including Customer Management, Sales and Opportunity Management, Sales History,Forecasts, Lead Management, Reporting and more. What we really appreciate is the flexibility of the product where we can make changes as our business requirements grow. This would be extremely costly with other systems. In addition, Commence has delivered top notch customer support in several instances where we ran into some glitches caused by user error.

Commence CRM has been great. One of the reasons I like the product so much is that I can customize the CRM database for the business and tweak it as I go along without being a programmer.

We have been using it for over 12 years.
