Associate one contact to multiple companies

DBowers3

Think business consultant or sales broker - We'd like to be able to have one contact associated with multiple companies in Sales CRM.

We certainly would like to be able to associate Contacts with more than one Company -- they may work somewhere and own another company, or have multiple jobs.  Just like with multiple emails, let us associate multiple Companies, but then select one as Primary.  Thank you in advance!

Hi mate

 

You can do this in the Beta, contact your account manager and ask for access.

We need this feature. In Norway where we are based, some times several businessunits share a Company entity. And some times the Department of a company is its own legal entity. Most common is that a small business owner has one company per business venture and a company that owns them. I have one contakt i want to assosiate with 8 companies.

Hi all, I suggested this idea a long time ago and 43 individuals have supported this idea, the support ranging from "would be very handy to essential to purchase / continue with the product". How do we get Hubspot to implement this. There is simply no reply from them? Does anybody know how to get some action? Robert

We are using HubSpot for college recruitment and this is essential to connect a potential student to their high school, church, club, org, etc. Has HubSpot made any official comment about this?

@DBowers3 I have companies with duplicate contacts as well.  I love the idea.

Agreed. If your clients works with more than one company/ vendor throughout their deal life, you'll want to create that  company-client relationship for tracking analytics and easy access

Having the ability to create additional objects would satisfy this and other areas where the platform is limited.  Example, associating deals and companies with additional salespeople, account managers, referral partners, or other associated contacts - currently, you have to create several additional static or user fields to accommodate.  This "workaround" makes the visual interface look crowded and less intuitive, and with the limited reporting, this is not a clean process to show in dashboards either.

We work with orthopedic surgeons who work at multiple hospitals. We would like the ability to associate the surgeons with all of the hospitals they are affiliated with.

This has been developed and is currently in BETA testing. Be on the lookout for upcoming release.

@krispag Can you provide any more detail on functionality? Specifically how information will be shared with the companies? Thanks,

So, this functionality has been in 'beta' for more than a year. You can request access from your HubSpot rep. Although the functionality is limited (you can't change the labels), it does allow you to see related parties to a 'deal' and note outside consultants to companies and related companies.

This would be incredibly helpful - we have many contacts that are attached to mulitple companies, and need to see this association, and store emails accordingly.

This is a much needed feature and would make our lives so much easier. 

 

Hope this idea makes it to the top voted 'new feature'.

This is a must for us, especially with our smaller customers, they often purchase from us for a couple of different businesses

We work with smal business owners who often own more than one business or are full-time employed with a different company. The opportunity to associate multiple Companies with the same Contact would improve the way we manage data and we need to have this rolled out.

Yes please. This will be helpful. Also in the field of consultancies.
