Sam Swift

We’ve bagged another one! That’s right, we’ve got a new developer joining the team, a local lad with a name right out of a comic book. He’s tried his hand working on a variety of bespoke projects for a wide range of companies before deciding to sink his teeth into the bigger and more complex project that is OpenCRM. Sam joins us with an experience that belays his years as well as the enthusiasm of youth, a perfect combination.

Danny Plumb

Monday, 16 November 2015 20:09

Joining us from the exciting world of radio, the newest member of our sales team is sure to be bringing some extra glitz and glamour to the company. Danny also has the distinction of being the first grandparent in the office, so he has a whole arsenal of “funny” jokes and advice ready and waiting to be heard. That’s right, we’ve got ourselves a glamorous grandad!

Robin Larmour

Wednesday, 09 September 2015 10:13

You’ll be hearing a new voice from now on when you get in touch with our Support team! Rob joins us after running his own IT repair company. He’s a family man with three lovely and very energetic little girls at home, which makes even the busiest day at the office seem like a relaxing holiday.

Billy Winter

Monday, 11 May 2015 13:12

Our newest developer started just last week and has already made himself right at home. He joins us almost straight out of his apprenticeship and has brought in a load of new ideas. Together with Daniel, we think this injection of youthful enthusiasm is really going to light a fire under the development team.

Justin Strong

Monday, 22 September 2014 10:29

Another new starter and another region of the world. Justin, our newest Project Manager, originally hails from South Africa and started his career in the tech industry working with Microsoft. His diverse background, which includes more than a bit of coding, means that Justin effortlessly bridges the Development and Projects teams.

Claire Latimier

Monday, 17 February 2014 14:28

It’s time to get dramatic, we’ve got a bone-fide actress with us now! Claire is the newest member of our sales team and originally trained for the stage in New York City. She’s originally from France, but has lived in so many countries she barely knows what language to speak. Don’t worry, though, she’ll pick up the Yorkshire-isms soon enough.

Jamie Booth

Monday, 11 November 2013 14:27

Oh dear. We have a new office prankster it would seem. Jamie, our newest Support Technician, has a big enough sense of humour for about three people. But he knows his stuff, he’s already been called upstairs to sort out a keyboard malfunction, definitely someone you want on your side for any tech-related questions.

Ashley Tallyn

Monday, 03 June 2013 12:18

We’ve got a doctor in the house—all the way from California! Ashley joins us from the world of academia and is just about done with her PhD in bioarchaeology. She’ll be joining our sales team (part time to start), so you’ll have someone at hand to help you research exactly what you are look for from a CRM system.

Tom Chapman

Tuesday, 23 November 2010 11:52

Tom is joining the team as our newest Project Manager. He has made his way back to England after living in Berlin for several years. Although a punk rocker at heart, Tom also volunteers with the Cats Protection Society, offering space in his own home for cats with no-where else to go.

James Parker

Monday, 01 November 2010 12:24

Talk about a change of pace, James comes to us from the exciting world of chemistry. As much as James enjoys working in the lab, he’d had enough of those fumes to last a lifetime and fancied joining our team as a dedicated Support Tech. Living in rural North Yorkshire is a big change for James, in some ways, as his last home was in a small valley Iceland surrounded by five volcanos!

Stephen Shutt

Saturday, 01 March 2003 11:38

Stephen is our new developer here at OpenCRM. He comes to us fresh out of uni, ready to start making a name for himself in the SaaS industry. When Stephen isn’t devoting himself to the latest that the video game industry has to offer, he will be out on his board wherever snow can be found.

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...

System Config Never E…

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...

Countdown to Xero

As many of you know, we have been integrating with Sage 50 Accounts package for several years now. The exciting news is that we now integrate with the Xero accounting package also. This integration is currently in beta testing, meaning that a small number of our existing customers are testing it out...

Direct Marketing With…

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...
