Current small business trends are being defied by Peterborough-based, multi-million pound software and services provider DMC Software Solutions, who are punching a hole through the current economic decline with increased marketing and massive sales drive.
As featured in the Mail on Sunday Newspaper Mike Ramsay, Managing Director of DMC Software Solutions, states, “we are bucking the trend, we have increased our sales force and marketing budget and we want to punch a hole through the recession. There is no doubt that this is a difficult time for businesses, but there are clear opportunities to be taken.”
These results seem incomprehensible as the recession looms but as other companies diminish their marketing spend and sales drive, DMC Software Solutions have been fighting back and increasing business.
Shrewd business decisions and DMC’s lack of borrowed money means that, although difficult, the economy has not crippled or destroyed their moral or business thinking unlike other small businesses that have drowned in debt or made untimely critical business decisions.
Its current success would suggest that DMC Software Solutions is a larger business but this multi-million pound company is barely 7 years old and employs just 50 members of staff.
DMC’s radical and successful approach is mainly attributed to the early Nineties recession in which Mike’s cleaning company operated on borrowed money and expanded too quickly resulting in company closure.
On this subject Mike states, “you always sail with the mariner who’s been on the reefs before for he know where they are,” he continues, “I have learnt many business lessons throughout the highs and lows in the economy and experience has taught me some vital business survival skills which has made DMC Software Solutions such a success today.”
DMC’s recent focus has been on product customisation, development and additional services such as IT support, TotalCare, and software hosting, Software as a Service. This approach has ensured that DMC Software can offer a fully bespoke service enabling customers to specify exact requirements and then to receive appropriate training, after-sales support and additional services.

This positive attitude and successful strategy has ensured that DMC Software Solutions have not only been regional finalists in the National Business Awards 2008 but, more recently, short listed for the prestigious industry category of CRM Reseller at the Software Satisfaction Awards 2008.
This nomination further supports DMC’s superb customer service record as the Software Satisfaction Awards are based entirely on the views of genuine buyers and end users of business software, not a judging panel.
Managing Director of DMC Software, Mike Ramsay comments, “This is a great honour for DMC as the Software Satisfaction Awards are based on the opinion of our customers. I feel that this recommendation, and our current success in the economic climate, is truly reflective of our dedication as a business to providing the very best in customer service.”
“We strive to ensure our clients receive a level of support that is second to none and invest heavily in our employees to make it so.”
