Really Simple Systems is a web based Customer Relationship Management vendor.



Really Simple Systems is a global based vendor of hosted (SaaS) Customer Relationship Management systems. Founded in 2004, the company is headquartered in the United Kingdom with offices in North America and Australia.


The company was founded in 2004[1] by John Paterson, former CEO of Zeus Technology and COO of Systems Union, with the public launch in January 2006[2]. After many years of installing Customer Relationship Management systems, and running specialist Customer Relationship Management vendor Oxygen Solutions, Paterson came to believe that the biggest obstacle to successful Customer Relationship Management adoption was the complexity of the products themselves.


Really Simple Systems has over 1,000 of hosted Customer Relationship Management systems[3]. Customers include the Royal Academy, the British Museum, the British Library, Citigroup, the Department of Health, Scottish Funding Council, the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

In October 2008 the company won the Software Satisfaction Awards for the best small business CRM system[4]. In December 2009 the listed was nominated as "One to Watch"[5] by Paul Greenberg.


The company is headquartered in Petersfield, Hampshire in the United Kingdom. In January 2008 the company opened its first overseas office in Sydney, Australia.[6]. In March 2009 the company opened its North American office in Toronto, Canada. In November 2009 the company appointed AdvanceNet[7] as distributor for Africa.
