What versions of Windows / Office do you support for the OpenCRM Outlook Add-in?

The Outlook add-in is supported on any version of Office/Outlook from 2003 up to Outlook/Office 2013 (32 bit) and Windows XP up to Windows 7 (64 or 32 bit).

It should also work on Windows 8 but due to the infancy of the operating system we have come across some issues here.

Due to changes in components shipped with Office 2013, some manual intervention may be required following the standard setup process. Contact the OpenCRM support team for assistance in this instance.

Installation of the Outlook Add-in on Virtual machines and Parallels for Mac should work, but is not officially supported.

We do not support 64bit Office of any version.

Is CRM the Missing In…

Starting up a company is probably one of the scariest things you can do in business. It takes guts, confidence, and a lot of late nights—even after more than 10 years on, I still remember how scary those first few years were. So often when a company is starting out you will hear that cash flow is king, meaning that any costs which are not required as essential should not be implemented. This is often the category that a CRM system...

‘Switch it off and on…

The importance of scheduling some time for yourself as part of a well-balanced working week is all too often overlooked. Some people feel that ploughing through that To Do list takes precedence, forgetting that a break can actually improve productivity and make your time at work more efficient and accurate. You do it for your computer when it over heats, so why not do it for yourself? Here’s a few things I do to stay fresh, keep my processors in action...

Surviving Exam Season…

We are now entering the dreaded exam season, and no matter where you are in the education process, exams are always stressful (don’t believe the people who say otherwise) Many of us here at OpenCRM have loved ones, including siblings and children, who are about to sit exams at school, college or university. Sometimes it is hard when you are about to take an exam, to understand why you are actually doing this and where it will take you in the...

Have you ever found yourself feeling, well, a little unsupported?!? Not the type of Support Billy! Not that type either... ...Now you are just getting ridiculous! Having a great Support system when you need it the most, both Business and in Life, is a pretty lucky position to be in. At OpenCRM we firmly believe in providing our clients with the very best support, advice and guidance. We think our system is pretty easy to use and our system training goes through everything.

As many of you will no doubt be aware, Sir David Attenborough celebrated his 90th birthday just the other day. Now we all know about his amazing and inspiring nature programs, I for one was interested in the natural world as a young man. But as I've grown older, I find myself getting lost in the wonder that his nature programmes bring. This wonderment follows me as I look around the stunning Yorkshire landscape in which we live and that can...

Keep Data Security at…

Data Security is at the forefront of the news at the moment, but there’s a surprising number of people and organisations that are still a bit naïve about how secure their data is, with many believing they are ‘safe’ from a potential hack, when actually this is far from the truth. And now with the new EU General Data Protection Regulations coming into force in the near future, online protection and data security has never been a more topical conversation. Lets...

Getting public opinion is a great way of marketing a project you are working on or rating the effectiveness of a product or service you provide. But like most things in business much care and attention needs to go into planning such a thing, as there can be a lot of risk attached to any public communications. Take for example the recent online poll for the naming of the Natural Environment Research Council’s new polar research ship. After weeks of voting and...

Keeping an Eye out fo…

I’m a very visually orientated person. I have always learned best by observing how to do something, from riding a bike to driving a car. That’s why for me, I really like to utilise the visual tools in OpenCRM as it gives me the chance and ability to refine and easily navigate through my day-to-day activities. You’ll see a lot of these same visual tools throughout OpenCRM, but I’d like to focus specifically on the ones in the Opportunities module, because...

Why Repeat Yourself?

Billy created an Opportunity   Billy created a Quote   Billy created a Sales Order   Billy created an Invoice   Billy had an idea... Most people don’t like repeats, I give you Top Gear on Dave and Home Alone at Christmas, I thank you. This is the same in our work places, nobody likes repeating their work over and over when it is just not necessary. This is where OpenCRM comes into its own. By intelligently pulling information through from one record to another (you can even do this yourself...

This month we knew that our business superhero could only go to one person, the amazing Dame Zaha Hadid, who very sadly passed away last month. Zaha Hadid was an extraordinary architect, you only have to look at her company’s website to see that her vision and ability were truly unique and that the world of architecture will sorely miss her influence. As the first woman recipient of both the RIBA Gold Medal in 2016 and the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004...

10 Steps to a Waterti…

Whether you are marketing to an existing or potential client base, your company’s email campaigns need to be watertight. Communication is key. You need to make sure that first and foremost the message you are trying to make is clear and precise, but also that the email looks good and demonstrates a high level of professionalism and expertise, which reflects your company’s brand. The process of creating these campaigns can and should be really quite lengthy. Much thought needs to go...

A Personal View of Re…

Remote working is a growing phenomenon within today’s work arena, and businesses and employees alike are reaping the benefits. Businesses are seeing reduced office costs and fewer sick days, while workers benefit from not having a lengthy commute every day and increased flexibility, allowing employees to have more control of their own schedule. Some people would also raise some potential disadvantages to remote working, mainly a worry around the lack of supervision (although I don’t think this is as big...

I recently had one of those hectic, crazy, stressful days that makes 8 hours go by in the blink of an eye. Honestly, I was always carrying on at least two conversations, if not three, while trying to concentrate on another task and worrying that there were several emails I really, desperately needed to reply to…it was a nightmare. One of my co-workers said I looked like someone trying to take an octopus for a walk in an asteroid field; a...

Your team mean everything to you and your business. They are your biggest asset, but what happens when your staff become your biggest downfall? A recent survey by Axelos, a UK government joint venture with outsourcing firm Capita, revealed that many businesses are putting themselves and customers at risk by failing to provide their staff with effective security training. Senior management teams are becoming complacent when it comes to training their staff members. Many are putting their business in jeopardy as...
