DCA Design International selects Workbooks Cloud CRM

Type: #PR

Reading, England, 26 June 2013

DCA Design International, Warwick based and one of Europe’s leading product design and development consultancies founded in the 1960s, has selected Workbooks as the contact relationship management system for use by over 90 users across its business. Workbooks will replace a legacy application running locally on DCA’s internal network.

Martin Wein, IT Manager commented, “The fact that Workbooks keep all our data in the UK as well as in our own separate database convinced us that their cloud CRM solution met our stringent data security requirements. Many other vendors either put all customer data in one big database or worse store all UK data in the USA. This would not have been acceptable to us as we have to ensure the best levels of diligence and integrity possible. We were impressed with Workbooks willingness and openness to engage with us as a vendor and believe our decision will help our users and support our business goals.”

DCA was also attracted to Workbooks for its intuitive interface and track record of high user adoption. In the recent G2 Crowd CRM Report Workbooks came out highest of all CRMs for ease of deployment and user adoption rates.

DCA joins a growing number of small to medium sized businesses choosing Workbooks to provide their CRM solution.

Ian Moyse, Sales Director at Workbooks commented, “We continue to win new clients in a variety of industries with a growing number recognising that bigger brand names mean just that and normally come with a far bigger price tag and complexity. We strive to work closely with clients for a successful outcome for their business and users and the recognition in the G2 Crowd report from customers placed us the highest performer in 93% of the categories.”
