Our clients include Accountants, Law Firms, Consultants and other professional services firms. It’s a very varied client base, but what they all have in common is their individuality. This is the key for Symphony; every client deserves their own highly bespoke solution.
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.
We have been working with Symphony-APS for over 11 years now. One of the reasons for that longevity is the relationship we have with them, the team at Symphony really take the time to understand the culture of our firm and make sure that the solutions fit in with that. Using that understanding and engaging with the firm means that we have been able to utilise their expertise to provide solutions that other providers just wouldn't have thought about.
Symphony - APS have been a supplier of Mazars for over 10 years, I personally have worked with them for the past 3 years and we have a strong, productive relationship. The Symphony team have worked with us on a number of strategic initiatives particularly regarding integration of systems. The most recent project, delivering an integration between our CRM solution and Practice Management, has helped us to reduce processing times and improve SLAs on production of matter codes. Their experience and understanding of our business, coupled with their knowledge of emerging technologies and how they can be applied to the challenges we face is of real benefit the firm and to me with the transformational objectives of my role.
