Our relations network is of paramount importance for doing our job. We aim for a long term relation.

We store the contact details and the (preferred) address details of our relations in our online CRM system Hubspot. Besides the contact details, we keep track of who wants to receive a newsletter, an invitation for drinks, or who wishes to be mediated via us and we store the gender for a correct salutation in our communication. Furthermore, we store the name, email address and function of our contact persons at these companies as well as the visit reports.
