Software giant The Access Group has acquired a CRM platform for wholesalers.

ProspectSoft, based in Oxfordshire, helps wholesale, distributor and manufacturing businesses to grow.

Set up over 25 years ago, it provides organisations operating stock management with an effective CRM solution, geared toward working within the B2B product supply chain.

Access acquired Unleashed in 2020, a key integration partner for ProspectSoft. This latest acquisition brings together three organisations to offer customers a broader range of integrated ERP and business management solutions.

“Access’s decision to acquire ProspectSoft reflects our desire to offer market leading software solutions to key market sectors, specifically to organisations involved in the manufacture, wholesale and distribution of B2B products,” said Brendan Flattery, managing director, ERP at Access.

“ProspectSoft operates in the world of stock management, offering a highly effective CRM solution, geared toward organisations working in the B2B product supply chain. ProspectSoft is a business that shares our passion for helping our customers achieve their goals and we’re delighted to bring ProspectSoft into our ERP Division.”

“Bringing together ProspectSoft and Unleashed, as well as introducing a greater breadth of business management tools such as HR, Payroll, internal communications and more, gives us the opportunity to support our customers even better, and reach more customers through Access’ growing global platform.”
