Giving Back to the Community

As a group of people, it’s fair to say we’re quite social. We enjoy a good chat over coffee on a morning as well as getting out into the wider world to just spend time together. Organising social events is a great way of building up a strong team that is able to work towards a single goal. We’ve also found that it can be a brilliant tool for raising money for those charities that are close to our hearts.

When planning social events, we will usually see if there is any way we can incorporate some element of fundraising to it. Whether it’s asking people for a small donation or getting out to do a focused, sponsored challenge—it’s important to us, as a group of people, to give back in whatever small way we can.

Visit our blog to see what we have been saying about our charitable ventures.
"Quite a while ago now, I told the guys (and girls) that I would love to see us, as a company, doing some fundraising and charity-driven activities. It seems it was all the push they needed, they have run with the idea and I couldn’t be happier with the events they are organising and the money we’ve raised for some excellent causes."
Graham Anderson, Managing Director OpenCRM

It's Not Easy Being G…

In the words of the world famous Kermit the Frog – ‘It’s not easy being Green’! We at OpenCRM are Green! so imagine my delight when I attended the recent North East Expo and the guys stood next to me were also green. They took the applause, however, as they also has a 6 foot frog with them. Talk about making yourself stand out! But why a 6 foot frog? As I walked amongst the various stalls and exhibitors I regularly heard ‘have you...

Always Record your Ac…

We have a long running (kinda sad) joke in the office. Whenever someone says that they forgot to do a particular job, someone will inevitably reply that they should get “some kind of system for that…maybe a CRM.” There’s always a bit of a sigh and a chuckle…I told you it was a sad joke. But the root of our vague amusement comes from the idea that, when we forget to do something, it probably is because we didn’t make a note...

Learning From Your Hi…

Humanity seems to thrive on failure. The news pages are filled daily with stories of defeat, misadventure and mishap. Business launches that flop spectacularly or a tech invention that goes wrong - for whatever reason we love to read about that kind of thing. In fact, at certain levels we have come to expect failure. Sporting fixtures for our national team or the Eurovision Song Contest are occasions where we almost relish the prospect of not winning. But lack of success...

We’re always looking for ways we can improve the service we provide to our customers. Sometimes this is a little tweak to our product and other times it is a little adjustment to our process. Sometimes these process modifications mean that we need a new way of capturing information in our own OpenCRM system. Let me give you an example: a small number of years ago, we were finding that information about new customers wasn’t always being passed across to the project...

OpenCRM is designed to cater for a wide range of business challenges. Different clients tend to use the system for as diverse a range of problem solving as you could imagine – some will use the out-of-the-box system for general contact management whereas others like to focus on a specific function and carry out extensive custom work, designing this to meet their exact requirements. Working in the Projects team, I get to help these customers in reaching their goals for their...
