Our Clients Include…
Fourfront Group has grown from a start-up to a £160m+ business within 20 years and Preact has supported us throughout this time. Their work on our Dynamics 365 project has enabled us to digitally transform our business and this will help us continue our incredible growth.
- Fourfront Group
- Justin Bass, Fourfront Group
I have been impressed by Preact’s relationship with our Operations IT Administrator where they have helped her develop a superb system. Preact are a professional organisation and respond well to working with our staff, like every significant project both sides work well when fully engaged.
- BCR Associates
- Richard Dormer, Managing Director
I’ve been very pleased with Dynamics 365 and found it to be a highly reliable cloud system which has proved instrumental in helping our business grow and sustain success during a period of unprecedented change in our industry. Preact's support has been a success story and we've reaped the rewards of their help.
- BeBa Energy
- Darren Oliver, Technical Director
Compared to our previous supplier, Preact has been far more responsive and demonstrated a ‘can-do’ approach. Our discussions are always consultative which has helped us understand just how much is possible in Microsoft Dynamics 365.
- Source Telecom
- Laura Fowler, Business Account Manager
I have found Preact large enough to cater for our requirements but small enough to care. They seem to have low staff turnover which means we often speak to the same people who understand what we need and why.
- British Gymnastics Foundation
Our talented team of Microsoft accredited consultants are excellent communicators who will do their utmost to make sure that your goals and requirements are achieved.
CRM Results First
To assess the success of your project, specific goals and measurable results matter. We start every implementation with the end in focus, to define your success criteria and apply regular checks to ensure progress remains on track.
Focus on User Empowerment
User adoption is fundamental for success but this is a frequently encountered obstacle. We recognise that every system must meet user needs, so we place user empowerment at the forefront of every project.
We don't operate a traditional sales team - we are all consultants with a solid CRM background and Dynamics 365 product knowledge. We won't bore you with a meaningless presentation but instead focus on the things that matter most to your business.
We'll adapt to fit your priorities, timelines and budget with flexible implementation options. We run our business as an efficient operation, and in turn pass these savings onto our clients, so you'll receive the best possible service at a highly competitive price.
Proactive Account Management
We seek to develop close, mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with all our clients. Use our managed service to phase the next step of your project, increase skills, quickly implement changes and gain greater value from the technology.
We built our company from the ground up to specialise in CRM and our focus has never changed. At the heart of Preact's culture sit our core values. Our commitment to these is central to the way we behave both with each other, and with our clients - it's the difference between good, and wow!
Putting Customers First
Delivering exceptional service in an efficient and cost effective manner
Being the Best
Pushing ourselves to perform at the highest possible levels
Growing Business Together
Working with our clients to develop mutually beneficial relationships
About our Microsoft Certifications
To make it to the Gold certification level, a company must demonstrate the best-in-class capability within a specific Microsoft solution area.
Microsoft designates the best performing firms the status of Managed Partner which gives us access to Microsoft's team including commercial and technical solution specialists. Through this we have a direct line to insider information on upcoming events, product updates, new releases and promotional deals.
Our Inner Circle membership also affords Preact ongoing executive sponsorship and privileged Microsoft support that further helps us support our clients.
In working with a Gold provider you can expect to receive the highest level of expertise and technical support available. This includes an ability to solve complex issues or challenges, which your business may encounter when implementing, integrating and developing Dynamics 365 solutions.
What our Microsoft Gold status means we can do for you...
- You get better support: We get access to Microsoft support on-demand so if a client's system has gone down, we will be able to provide advice directly from Microsoft.
- You get real expertise: Microsoft expects its Gold partners to know their stuff in helping clients implement sustainable solutions and get the most from their technology. They are required to demonstrate understanding of their specialised field and are at the cutting edge when it comes to extending and developing Microsoft products.
- You benefit from our training: We get access to the latest Microsoft learning resources and tools so that technical expertise gets fed back to you.
- Informed advice: Staying up to date about the latest Dynamics 365 news helps us share insight and give you the best advice for the future which is reflected in our consultancy, licensing recommendations, training, webinars and blog updates.
From our humble beginnings 25 years ago, we've grown from an underdog start-up to a respected CRM consultancy that is trusted by small and medium-sized firms to help them accelerate their digital transformation.
