What is Marketing Resource Management (MRM) Software?
Why you need it, and what to look for.
Marketing Resource Management (MRM) is a combination of Marketing Processes and Technology that focuses on a Marketing Team’s entire pool of resources in a consolidated single system.
MRM software and applications provide an integrated environment for content planning, production, governance, compliance, and execution. The end goal of an MRM System is to optimize and interconnect marketing initiatives allowing marketing departments to run at maximum capacity with ease.
MRM Software increases efficiency
MRM software aims to increase efficiency and save time across the entire marketing pipeline using task automation and process replication to give marketers back valuable time. The right MRM can clean up busywork and administrative bottlenecks by streamlining backend marketing operations.
Marketing Operations made cost-effective
A robust MRM platform is designed to give a bird’s eye view of marketing projects that will enable teams to see what can be optimized, what projects are running over budget, and how maximum productivity can be achieved throughout marketing activities.

Collaboration Tools eliminate silos
MRM software is a single source of truth for marketing departments to operate in. Increasing collaboration across teams and eliminating silos that ultimately slow projects down.
