A little about us...

We believe that great membership organisations have great relationships with their members – they are just closer. So, whilst we might be a CRM solution provider we have a clear purpose: to get you closer to your members.


We do this in a number of ways.

Firstly, our solution is built on Microsoft Dynamics 365. This allows our clients to enjoy an open, secure, familiar and scaelable IT platform that can integrate into pretty much all areas of a business operation; now and in the future.

Secondly, our solution facilitates greater membership interaction, which leads to greater membership insight. Whilst this might not sound amazing, the results are. Our solution ensures our clients build better relationships with their members and communities to secure higher levels of renewal and recruitment all in an environment that is operationally efficient. Better for your organisation and better for your members.

100% focused around membership sector needs

Our efforts are 100% focused around the needs of a single industry and we invest heavily in our product development to ensure we provide a CRM solution that can be used as a benchmark for the membership sector. We’re really proud of our efforts and our clients are too.

Silverbear first opened its doors in 2000 as a CRM system integration and development house. During our formative years we quickly gained a reputation for working with large not-for-profit organisations and helping them to solve their specific membership relationship challenges.

Silverbear is now a thriving, award-winning solution provider which is 100% focused on meeting the challenges of the membership and trade association industries.

All of our client project management, development and support teams are based from our Guildford offices. This unique environment ensures we can sustain an agile, innovative and collaborative culture that remains the envy of our competitors.
