From Joel Hatin, Dynamics Specialist, Altico Advisors
Businesses today are working hard to do more with less. Can a software system really help?
Microsoft Dynamics CRM delivers functionality to ease those demands. In addition to being
- Flexible, with the Power of Choice in deployment, purchase, and use,
- Familiar, with an intuitive user interface, so your users can be immediately productive, and
- Designed to fit your business, delivering ease of customization and integration,
here are 10 more criteria to make the case for deploying a robust CRM system in your company.
Top 10 Reasons to Choose Microsoft Dynamics CRM:
#10. Affordability – Not only do you get competitive pricing for both on-demand and on-premise deployments, your maintenance fees are also waived for the first year.
#8. Great Fit – Because Microsoft Dynamics CRM is based on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), it easily integrates into your existing systems using industry-standard Web services. Its exceptional customization feature also simplifies adapting it to your processes, models, and technology infrastructure. Learn more about the technology.
#7. Operational Insight – The reporting engine generates compelling data reports within Microsoft Dynamics CRM to help you make informed business decisions. Get deeper insights by integrating Microsoft Dynamics CRM with Microsoft Business Intelligence products for performance management, scorecards, data mining, and OLAP reporting.
#6. Rapid Innovation – History tells this story best: Microsoft launched Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 in December 2007, and in April 2008, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, an on-demand service, was introduced. In less than 18 months, the September 2008, the March 2009, and the November 2009 Service Updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online were released. By July 2009, several free CRM Accelerators were launched with new functionality for Analytics, eService, Event Management, Enterprise Search, Sales Forecasting, Sales Methodology support and much more. More innovation is currently in development.
#5. The Power of Choice – You can choose to deploy Microsoft Dynamics CRM in-house, or let us or a partner host it for you. You can choose how your people interface with it—through Microsoft Office Outlook, a browser, or a mobile device. You can even decide whether to buy it or—in effect—to rent it. The best part? It’s easy to switch if your business needs change.
#4. High User Adoption – Microsoft Dynamics CRM works within Microsoft Office Outlook, one of the most popular applications that people use every day. This high level of comfort with Office Outlook can help to significantly drive user adoption and success. Want to know more?
