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

Business Efficiency –…

One of the main purposes of using a CRM is to promote your business efficiency – let you concentrate on running your business whilst the CRM takes care of processes and data management. Because of this, we are mindful that shortcuts and ease of use are keys to a successful CRM implementation and as a result we are always developing enhancements here and there to make the user experience that much slicker. As we prepare to launch the latest updates to...

Avoiding Holiday Chao…

Year end is here, hooray, you made it! But along with all the reporting and financial fun (not) that you have to tackle at this time of the year, there’s one more job that needs to be managed: the holiday rush. No, that the Christmas holiday rush, but the one where everyone suddenly remembers that they have a few days of holiday to use up and are desperate to organise “just a few days off.” In the last month of the financial year…and...

Being Part of the Com…

This can be a very difficult balance, do you do this just to gain some recognition or is a genuine effort to add something to your community or the place where you work? My son came to me recently as a coach of an under 8’s football team and asked if we would like to sponsor the kids with a new strip. After a short conversation, we decided that we would be delighted to and it would be a great thing...

Cloud Perspectives – …

Cloud storage is a big step towards streamlining your business. It allows you to store your client details and other information in a manner that is accessible from anywhere, at any time. You can build up a great web of data by interlinking Companies and Contacts with all manner of actions, sales details and support requests, helping you build a complete customer profile. Just like those clients, your own business is not a static entity - you are constantly evolving. Staff...

Having the Right Pers…

It is a common pitfall, especially in the tech industry, to assume that known tasks are therefore easy tasks. That just because you know how to do something (and that everyone in your office knows how to do the same thing), it is actually common knowledge. What do I mean by this? Let me give you an example: I was recently having a conversation with one of our developers about a new piece of software I wanted to introduce and had been...

An Alternative Use of…

Every business has a reason to have a CRM solution. It doesn’t mean that every company will have one or that every company will use them in the same way. Often, different people in the same company will use their CRM differently because they have different reasons for needing one. This means that every CRM solution out there needs to be flexible enough to meet a wide variety of business needs, some simple and others complex. Over the last 12 years, we’ve...

Getting Back To Basic…

Is Nostalgia Making A Comeback? I was surprised to hear that a Finnish manufacturer is set to release a revamped version of the classic Nokia 3310 phone. Although it has been out of circulation for the past 12 years, many people will remember this phone fondly and if you compare its solid build and long-lasting battery life with the phones of today then perhaps that’s not just for nostalgic reasons. The 3310 was a significant step on the journey of innovation and...
