N/A
Crowded.me is a banking service designed specifically for clubs, groups, and their members. Traditionally, banks have compartmentalized their customers into consumers and businesses and neglected the hundreds of billions in cash flow that exists between B2B and B2C. Crowded aims to be a one-stop-shop platform for these 'crowds' encompassing payments, banking, reporting, taxation, and organizational management.

I have not experienced any other system that can do what Blend does as easily as Blend. It's very well suited for the mortgage industry and its ability to communicate with Encompass. I don't think it would be a great CRM tool for a company that doesn't need multiple touch points to a client, for instance, if you simply need a name, phone number, and email address Blend would be overkill. Blend is designed specifically to capture a lot of specific details about a client's financial position.

Crowded
Crowded is very well suited for fraternities, or any non-profit community groups really, that have a centralized fund and rely on members purchasing equipment and materials individually. Any company that requires reimbursements and has to manage dues from numerous members should take advantage of this free application, as it provides a really easy way to manage the finances of an organization

Crowded
We were using GreekBill before to manage our funds and dues, and it was very outdated and unhelpful. Crowded was much more simple, easy to use, and had way more functions.
