CRM Built by Franchise Owners for Franchise Owners

Where ClientTether Began

Our CEO and Founder, Conrad Kolba was sitting in a similar situation you probably find yourself in right now. As a founder and consultant to many franchise brands, Conrad started to notice a substantial drop-off that happened with new leads engagement.

CRMs didn’t solve the problem, and customer reclamation was just too expensive. So, he went to work creating something that would completely solve the problem, and ClientTether was born. And it worked.

Countless companies began to utilize our software, and we watched as their lead conversion rates rose as high as 75%, their customer loyalty increased exponentially, and these franchise owners could now spend time on other, important areas of their work.

We take pride in being the industry's top-rated franchise management software provider. Our commitment to excellence and innovation has earned us this prestigious reputation among franchisors worldwide.
