Sevenoaks, Kent. Leading independent CRM consultancy, Collier Pickard has today concluded an agreement to purchase the assets of Agovo Ltd. The purchase will further enhance the company’s existing Creatio no-code workflow automation and CRM delivery capability. Following the asset purchase, Collier Pickard will have the largest team of certified Creatio analysts and developers in the UK.
Recognising the accelerating trend for CRM vendors to adopt Low-Code and No-Code tools, Collier Pickard entered a strategic partnership with Creatio in 2019. The exponential growth in Low-Code/No-Code requirements necessitated a review of the platforms Collier Pickard sells and supports. Creatio features in five Gartner Magic Quadrants and is a Leader in three. Creatio’s innovative technologies, strong commitment to partners and genuine care for its customer, made it the obvious choice for Collier Pickard.
Well known as one of the UK’s leading independent CRM consultancies, Collier Pickard also operates multiple CRM supply and implementation practices. For clients looking to source and implement CRM systems based on software from Maximizer, Infor, or Creatio, Collier Pickard employs teams of dedicated vendor certified professionals. This technical strength and depth, delivered from the company’s offices in Kent and online, supports clients across the UK and CRM deployments across the world. The success of the approach is seen in the number of clients that have trusted Collier Pickard as their CRM solution partner during the past 18 years.
Agovo Ltd, has been a Creatio partner for 7 years. In that time, the Agovo team has established a reputation as the leading Creatio implementor in the UK. In addition to delivering many successful projects, the team has developed numerous Creatio Add-On applications sold through the Creatio Marketplace. The UK based team provides Creatio training, support, and development skills, delivered through a comprehensive project management office.
The new Collier Pickard Creatio practice will be managed by Andrea Ingham, Agovo Managing Director. This practice will capitalise on the Freedom offered by Creatio and its One Platform approach, such that customers will be able to take ownership of their own business process automation and gain significant benefits from their relationships with both Creatio and Collier Pickard. The combined practice operates in both B2B and B2C CRM, supporting customers across a wide variety of industries and across the full spectrum of CRM: marketing, sales, service, connectors, and system integration.
Collier Pickard Managing Director Paul Pitman said: “Bringing together Agovo’s implementation skills developed over many years, with the depth of CRM expertise that Collier Pickard is known for, provides a valuable resource for Creatio clients and prospects across the UK.
“Our position is that Creatio offers clients freedom from the high costs and slow delivery associated with other CRM platforms. As a leading No-Code platform, Creatio empowers citizen developers. This changes the way CRM solutions are implemented and necessitates significant changes to our support capabilities. By bringing together the team from Agovo with our own, we can offer a UK based resource that delivers on the Creatio promise of Genuine Care”.
