Prospect CRM

Prospect eCommerce

We're a UK-based Division of The Access Group, specialising in CRM & eCommerce, headed up by our original founder. We create, develop & deliver our SaaS platform, Prospect CRM, to more than 5,000 SME users worldwide.

Our Solutions & People

Prospect is the #1 Stock-Aware CRM for Wholesalers, Distributors & Manufacturers who sell products from stock B2B. Prospect offers an unparalleled integration framework to almost any ERP/accounting system and native integration to the leading back-office Accounting and Inventory Management Systems, including Unleashed, Xero, QuickBooks Commerce, DEAR Inventory, Cin7, Sage 50, Access Dimensions, Exchequer, Pegasus Opera and SAP.

In many businesses, much of the valuable data like stock, customer credit limits, sales history and special pricing is buried inside the Accounting/Inventory management system. Powerful and out-of-the-box integration enables us to extract this critical information and make it accessible to the rest of your business. This enables Sales teams to become ‘Stock-Aware’ too, as this valuable information becomes available to them in the sales process.

Unlike other CRM systems, businesses get a return on investment from day 1 using Prospect, as they have access to vital customer information immediately – even in the Free Trial.

What we do is possible because of the expertise and experience of our team of professionals who strive to deliver the best possible solutions and customer service. We're an award-winning employer (the most awarded SME in the UK for its placement programme), but we know that we're only as good as our people, which is why we invest heavily in recruiting, training and developing an amazing team.
