OnePageCRM is a cloud-based sales management application for SMEs with a worldwide proven method to greatly boost sales. Specifically built for small business, its unique design makes it extremely effective with minimal data entry and is as easy to use as email.  OnePageCRM is part of the wave of new cloud-based applications for business, where team collaboration and mobile access is to the fore. Securely hosted on Amazon servers, it uses the same encryption as online banking.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD, who visited Galway to hold an Action Plan for Jobs Business Forum, said:  ‘OnePageCRM is implementing an ambitious growth strategy and demonstrating ability to compete and win new business.  Innovative small companies like this are right at the heart of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs which is aimed at building a sustainable, jobs-rich economy based on enterprise, exports and innovation. This investment and these jobs are very welcome, I commend the company on its achievements and wish it every success for the future’.
Michael FitzGerald, the founder and CEO of OnePageCRM, said: ‘Larger CRM systems work well at enterprise level, but not in SMEs whose managers are busy juggling the multiple tasks of running their business. Enterprise CRM is overkill for their needs’.

With an international market, the company has successfully focused on export sales from the beginning.  Michael FitzGerald added:  ‘The beauty of distributing a sales-related product is that it can be sold globally without the need of complex configuration. Sales in SMEs is the same the world over - engage, build trust and stay organised. OnePageCRM excels at this process.  The application, being used by companies around the world, proves its value every day by helping salespeople get things done’.
Welcoming the announcement Barry Egan, Enterprise Ireland Regional Director West Region, said: ‘OnePageCRM is exactly the type of young and innovative company that Enterprise Ireland is keen to support.  They have worked with both the local Galway Enterprise Board and now Enterprise Ireland to build an ambitious company with a very strong product offering.  We look forward to continue working with them as they grow and develop their business on international markets’.
