Symphony Provides Best-in-Class CRM to Professional Services Firms
Renowned for its success with the Advance™ Practice Management System, Symphony’s sister company, Advanced Professional Solutions (APS), recognized the need for a world-class CRM solution to focus on helping its accounting and consulting clients develop more business and improve client relationships.
In the case of Mazars, one of the largest accounting firms in the UK, they have improved their efficiency to the tune of 2,000 recovered hours by eliminating repetitive data entry after deploying Sugar.
With Symphony’s expertise, we’ve now got a complete holistic overview of clients and potential prospects. The integrated system has not only allowed us to centralise solutions, providing full visibility across the entire practice, but also to develop systematic automation to some key compliance processes and repetitive tasks positioning us as consultative rather than compliance based.
Symphony had a great understanding of our business and intimate knowledge of the key systems used within the practice. Therefore, they were able to provide a truly tailored solution. Their team’s willingness to work with the practice to arrive at outcomes tailored to our requirements and being prepared to start the process without having all the answers and then invest the time in finding them is second to none.

Over the last sixteen years we have relied on Symphony to be a knowledgeable, flexible and valuable sounding board, acting as a catalyst for many of our investment decisions. Our recent strategy workshop, facilitated by Brian Coventry, enabled us to align our IT strategy directly with our business development strategy, setting both context and prioritisation for all stakeholders within the business to understand.

Chantrey Vellacott had a long and well established business relationship with APS. So when the Firm initiated a strategic business transformation plan, a critical part of this was the identification and purchase of an appropriate Client Relationship Management system, to which Symphony became our natural choice. To hit our key objectives in the project we required complete compatibility with our Practice Management System, along with a consistent data collection, management and reporting capability. This then allowed us as part of the bigger strategy to put in place a robust framework to introduce and deliver clear sales processes across the firm.
The full development of our customised version of Symphony was challenging, but the journey was made seamless by our professional working partnership with Symphony - APS.
