The critical aspect of CRM is customer value, the economic value of the customer relationship to the firm. Customer Value Management is a measure of a company’s customers’ view of the perceived value for money delivered relative to that of their competitors’ customers. It is sometimes known as a Customer Value Added (CVA) approach. He said that effective Customer Value Analysis brings tangible benefits to a company.
