Enterprise Services Lead - EMEA / Director
Commercial Real Estate


I have worked with Scott on a number of projects with different focuses, from high level CRM architecture pieces through to complex customisations. Scott's mastery of Dynamics CRM is without question, and the bonus is he is careful to listen and understand your particular business problem rather than just proceed with a pre determined CRM approach. For CRM strategy, design and implementation, I cannot recommend Scott highly enough.

Technology Strategy Programme Director
Not for profit


Scott is one of the most rounded and able Solution Architects that I have ever worked with. He is exceptionally strong technically and has a rare ability to be able to shape a complex solution and maintain an enterprise view whilst being able to analyse and provide solutions to the minutiae where needed. He is also very comfortable with people and is adept at drawing out key drivers for user adoption / business benefit and then ensuring these are focussed on to enable success of a solution.

Program Manager
Financial Services Specialist



Develop 1 are a Microsoft Partner with a difference. Why? We have a passion for delivering Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions that fits your business and vision rather than focusing on the primarily around the commercial engagement. Scott originally founded Develop 1 to be a firm of trusted third-party solution architects that can work alongside other implementation partners or internal development teams to work for the mutual benefit of you and your users. We only employ likeminded architects and consultants to ensure that this original goal stays intact.

Industry Expertise


We recognise that each industry has very specific needs that do not always match the standard configuration of Microsoft Products. We also recognise however that customising Dynamics 365 can lead to a higher total cost of ownership for your business. Finding a balance between this is our primary goal to allow your solution to grow with you and with Microsoft's new investments so that you can continue to benefit. Our experience covers; Financial Services, Not-for-profit, Real Estate, Local Government Services and the Insurance Industry. Get in touch with us to talk about how we can use this experience to help transform your business.

Maximise Investment


If you are planning to implement Microsoft Dynamics or if you already have, maximising your investment should be top of your agenda. We have moved on from the 'efficiency savings' calculations of the past decade and moved into the decade of Machine Learning. Intelligent Business Applications create actionable insights that drive your business forwards by maximising the value of your existing data and relationships. Digital Transformation may be a buzz word for sure - but the way that it can drive your business forwards in new and exciting ways is very real. Speak to us about how you can make the most from the incredible investments Microsoft is making in these areas.
