Applications Division has been acquired by Access Group

I am delighted to share the news that the Business Applications Systems Solutions (Bass) part of Atlas Group has been acquired by Access Group, the UK author of Access Dimensions. As a result of these changes the whole of our Atlas applications team are also joining Access.

Access Group decided on this strategic move because of the strength of our service quality, expertise and reputation in providing our customers with successful business systems. In joining Access we now have available for you an even greater depth and breadth of products and services expertise to support and develop great solutions and services for an ever-growing spectrum of clients across many sectors and critical business functions.

The whole board of Atlas universally endorsed this teaming up with Access after twenty years in a very successful business partnership together, because we are certain that the combination of business software applications capability of the expanded Group really will deliver substantial benefits to our customers’ organisations in terms of added choice, value and operational performance gains they will want to make over the next several years.

Our valued customers can be immediately assured, as well, that their current relationships and contacts will continue with the existing people of the Atlas team, regardless of whether their need is for applications or ‘technicals’ assistance for whichever products and services we provide to them. In addition, our applications consultants will have access to the whole wider pool of several hundred Access specialists for both support and projects.

Therefore, the main point of contact for our customers will remain the current staff they already know well:

  • For clients who prefer email to raise support queries your existing addresses continue to work and you can also now use when you believe that it is an ‘applications’ rather than IT infrastructure or networking issue.
  • For those who usually make initial contact to our office by phone for business function/applications related matters, then in the interim period please continue to call 0333 666 3330 where there will be an option to contact the Access team. Over the course of the next few weeks the team will be moving to a new office, the telephone number for which will be communicated to you beforehand. (For the many of you who also depend on us for technical IT infrastructure and networking support, you should continue using the 0333 666 3330 number you are used to – so no change there.)

I have especially enjoyed working with all of our clients over the years (the many years with many of them!) and we look forward to continuing our relationship with everyone as part of Access Group.
