CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., May 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TargetX, a leading provider of Enterprise CRM technology for colleges and universities, announces its annual CRM Summit meeting and a full schedule of events from July 20-22, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The CRM Summit will feature client-led sessions and other opportunities for attendees to share experiences and best practice advice for building relationships with students, alumni, potential donors and other key constituencies. The conference is open to current clients as well as colleges considering the purchase of TargetX's CRM system.

"The Summit was my opportunity to find the reasons not to go with TargetX. I didn't find any," says a Director at Concordia University, Portland. "Current clients were very satisfied with the system and appreciative of the TargetX team. I got to meet members of the customer support, implementation, and product development teams. Concordia University Portland is now a TargetX CRM school, and we're very happy about it."

Alex Sheen, Founder of Because I Said I Would, will appear as a special guest speaker at the CRM Summit. Because I Said I Would is a social movement and nonprofit organization dedicated to bettering humanity through promises made and kept.

"Our CRM Summit event always leaves everyone refreshed and inspired, which is why we invited Alex Sheen, famous for his powerful TED talk, to the CRM Summit this year," says Founder and Chief Evangelist of TargetX, Brian Wm Niles. "Every year, I enjoy connecting a wide range of higher ed professionals all of whom remember their passion and commitment to helping students and driving new solutions and efficiencies throughout the field of higher education."

The conference will bring together admissions, marketing, advancement and information technology professionals from colleges around the country to learn how to make better use of the company's products and services and to share their successes and challenges with colleagues.

"Our users conference is energizing but it's also pragmatic," Niles continued, "because we include a ton of practical information that goes beyond TargetX products or services, and helps attendees learn how they can embrace the latest industry trends and best practices."
