In the applications arena, he is seen as an industry commentator on the CRM market where his early views on the integration of all forms of e-commerce with the traditional world of bricks and mortar are now widely accepted dogma. This has led Russell to acquire a clear understanding of business information systems, and how and why they might be used and integrated with existing systems like ERP, logistics, CRM, warehousing, marketing, mobile and web-based SaaS systems. His wide industry experience coupled with his extensive market knowledge means that clients and prospects alike are keen to engage him in dialogue that ultimately adds value to their stakeholders.
