About Really Simple Systems CRM

From experience I knew that unless a system is easy to use you won’t get the buy-in from sales people and it won’t be used properly. I wanted a CRM that was simple to use, concentrating on the main sales features that I believe a CRM needs. Often, these systems are too complicated, but when I came across Really Simple Systems, I knew it was right for us.

Our Philosophy – Making CRM Simple

Our philosophy is based upon taking complex applications then making them easy and affordable.

Experience tells us that the majority of SMEs don’t need half of the functionality available in most CRMs and will never use it. So, by applying our philosophy to our CRM we have created a system that organisations can easily adopt and use to successfully manage their business. Basically, making CRM simple!

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

Everything a small business needs to manage their sales and marketing!

About John Paterson, CEO & Founder

John has used, implemented and overseen more CRM systems than he cares to admit to. This has been in a variety of roles including as a salesperson, sales manager, sales director, COO and CEO.

As CEO of CRM vendor Oxygen Solutions it was reinforced that the key to successful CRM implementation had little to do with technology but all to do with getting people to use the CRM system properly. 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 aimed at small and medium sized organisations.

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