When choosing matchmaking CRM software, matchmakers normally want a simple, affordable, secure, and private electronic database that just works. A slick design, good customer service, and a simple-to-use interface is all they need to get going. But finding the right matchmaking CRM can still be a hard task. So, what do you need to know to make sure you get the software and support that you need?
Introduction to Matchmaking CRM
Here’s the first thing we learned when we got into this game: Matchmaking is not just a job, it’s a passion.
Matchmaking is not an easy job, software can break, clients can be difficult, any number of things can go wrong. The only way to succeed as a matchmaker is to be passionate about it.
True matchmakers love matching people, simple as that. Be it matching for business, for retail, or for love, a matchmaker finds joy in building connections and making introductions. Unlike many other industries, a matchmaker is happy when you don’t need them anymore, because it means they matched you right.
When it comes to technology and CRM, though, many matchmakers may not really know what to do. They are experts in connections, not technology and programming, so they need to be certain they can rely on the vendors who supply them with software and CRM solutions.
Here are our top 8 questions that matchmakers ask when looking for a matchmaking CRM.

2. Will my database be private and secure in the CRM?
This is one of the first questions our customers ask us. How secure and private will their data be in our CRM system?
The answer: Very secure indeed.
SmartMatchApp is a privately-owned, independent technology company. Our job is to develop and license the technology you need while constantly keeping it up-to-date, secure, safe and private. We designed our CRM as a system of separate database tables, so there is no way for your data to be shared between matchmakers unless mutually agreed in the Network. Basically, your data isn’t just protected from outside forces, but it’s also kept separate from all other data in SmartMatchApp. What’s yours, stays yours. Simple as that.
SmartMatchApp is Privacy Shield, PIPEDA and GDPR compliant.
SmartMatchApp does not sell or rent your information or data to anyone. Ever.
You may opt-out of any future communications from SmartMatchApp at any time.

SmartMatchApp is very easy to customize and does not require a developer or a designer to operate. Without any previous experience, you can create your own fields, forms, and search criteria with our easy-to-use CRM software.
Our system is very much like Lego - you can take the basic building blocks and put them all together yourself, in whatever arrangement most suits your needs. We designed our system with customizability in mind because matchmakers work in a wide range of different markets, languages, niches, and backgrounds. So, in order to be useful for everyone, we had to create a platform that was very flexible and highly customizable.
