Sometimes, you really don’t need long to see that something is working well. It’s been a matter of months and Craig Eddy, Managing Director, is clear about the results:  “85% of our total revenue in the last three months has come from Applegate,” explains Craig. 

“Applegate don’t restrict buyers to using their system. Whilst speaking on the phone to their marketing team, I’ve had an email from the NHS who have come back to me again, having found us on Applegate originally. 

"We’re building ongoing relationships and winning ongoing business that we wouldn’t have had without Applegate."

Starting from Scratch with a ‘Customer-First Methodology’

“Rapid Fire were starting up. We were in a stage where our values were central, and revenue was crucial. As a logistics company, we needed to invest a significant amount of capital in technology.
"The money we had left was for marketing – split between Applegate and one other provider. Applegate aligned with our values and has delivered the sales we need.  
"We are particularly delighted with the client service element - this really helps us know where we can improve for other quotes."
