We are delighted with the recent CRM training, it went really well and your trainer was brilliant, the feedback from all the sales people was very positive. He is very knowledgeable and understanding of the different levels of users. He was very helpful to me on admin side of the CRM and nothing was too much effort. Looking forward to having him back!

Preact have delivered a faultless service for many years. I’ve found them to be a great team to work with and I believe that sentiment would be echoed throughout our organisation.
- Royal Mencap Society
- Gordon Pearson, Systems Manager CRMS
Preact supply us with excellent CRM support and are easy to contact. There have been many instances in which their support team has gone above and beyond what I expected, in particular sharing their know-how and extra insight which helps us handle similar issues in the future. I find that other suppliers are quick to close cases but Preact are not like that. They immediately acknowledge issues, keep me updated and check that I am happy before closing down cases. I have no hesitation in recommending their services for any organization that needs help with Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
