(Free Press Release) Access, UK Colchester 25 January 2011 Impey, the market-leader in level access showering, has invested in a new finance and customer relationship management (CRM) system from Access. The 35 user Access Dimensions and 50 user GoldMine solution will replace an ageing Sage 200 package that could no longer support the business as it continued to grow.

Having grown steadily since it started trading, and reporting a company turnover of £15.7 million in 2009, Impey went to market for a software solution that could manage the changing needs of the company. Lynne Landais, internal sales manager at Impey, said, “We were looking for a system that would address how the company operates today and was also flexible enough to facilitate our predicted growth for at least the next five years.” The firm undertook a rigorous selection process with many ERP providers before choosing Access.

“We really wanted more than an off-the-shelf product, we wanted a provider that was a great cultural fit and could partner with us as we continue to grow. Access had the right solution and the right people that made us want to work with them. They were able to offer us special customisation for our pricing requirements and integration with our distributors, TNT. The personnel we dealt with really did offer a collaborative approach and were focused on meeting our individual and unique needs,” continued Lynne.

Impey will be using GoldMine Enterprise Edition to manage all of its marketing and lead generation requirements, and to provide its 30 field-based personnel with relevant, reliable customer information. The CRM solution will bring greater efficiency to Impey‘s marketing activities whilst providing the ability to share information and manage customers, leads, and business opportunities. In addition to this the new solution will provide management reports and information. “Access Dimensions and GoldMine will enable us to have more sophisticated management of customers and opportunities, and the ability to interrogate data,” Lynne concluded.

GoldMine from FrontRange Solutions is a world leader in the development of powerful, business and CRM software. Over the last 10 years, Access has grown to become one of the largest GoldMine resellers in Europe, winning 'CRM Partner of the Year' at the FrontRange Solutions Partner Awards 2010.
