Our Philosophy – Making CRM Simple

  • At Really Simple Systems CRM our philosophy is based upon taking complex applications then making them easy and affordable.

    Our experience tells us that the majority of small and mid-sized businesses don’t need half of the functionality available in most CRMs and will never use it. So by applying our philosophy to the development of our CRM we have created a system that organizations can easily adopt and successfully manage their business. Basically, making CRM simple!

    • Take complex application areas
    • Redesign to be simple to use, implement and support
    • Make them affordable

About John Paterson, CEO & Founder

  • John has used, implemented and overseen more CRM systems than he cares to admit to as a sales person, sales manager, sales director, COO and CEO.

    As CEO of CRM vendor Oxygen Solutions it was reinforced to him that the key to successful CRM implementation was very little to do with technology but all to do with getting people to use the CRM system properly, and the key to getting people to use it properly was to make it easy-to-use, fast and reliable as possible. It was off the back of these experiences that he saw the gap in the market for a simple, straightforward hosted CRM system that was aimed specifically at small and medium sized organizations.

  • John started Really Simple Systems CRM in 2006 and has steadily grown the business globally.

    Previous companies that John has run include Systems Union Group (mid-market ERP), Oxygen Solutions (CRM for the finance and pharma industries) and Zeus Technology (Internet infrastructure).

    John is also a part-time mentor for UCL’s Advances programme and speaks on sales and marketing practices at the London Business School.

    In 2014 John was voted Citizen of the Year by the CRM Idol Judges.
