Customer value maximization (CVM) is a real-time service model that, proponents say, goes beyond basic customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities, identifying and capturing maximum potential from prospects and existing customers. Proponents claim that a well-devised CVM program helps companies offer the right things to the right people at the right time.
