Think of a CRM like a giant filing cabinet; when you first get one, it’s essentially a huge box to store things, but it’s up to you in how you organize it. HEDA provides an initial framework for organizing and managing your data – specifically around people, relationships, and courses. It allows for complex connections between people and organizations.
