Marketing Resource Management Software Comparison


Consider the following when evaluating marketing resource management software:


  • Scope: Products offer a variety of features that may or may not be needed for your operation. Identify which functions are desirable. For example, a brand manager may be seeking software that supports robust analytics and reporting to help improve marketing strategies. Large companies with many marketing assets and large teams may look for software that makes sharing and collaboration easy.


  • Integration: What system integrations are required? CRM? CMS? Accounting? Do you already have a DAM (Digital Assets Management) system in place, or will that need to be part of your MRM software?


  • Access: Does the product offer mobile access? This feature permits marketers and their teams to collaborate and communicate on the go. It allows marketers to review campaign performance from anywhere. It also provides access to branded marketing assets from anywhere users have a strong internet connection. This can be critical for social media and other digital marketing professionals.

Pricing is usually based upon the number of users, data storage requirements, and the features included. Entry-level options begin as low as $9/user/mo., rising to a minimum fee of $7,500 a month for some products.
