 6.        SugarCRM vs. Microsoft Dynamics CRM: Which On-Premise Solution Provides The Most Value?

2168 views | 7 Comments | March 10, 2010 by Julie Stankey, Socius

Lately, I have been seeing more and more of SugarCRM in the marketplace.  It makes sense.  After all, when money is tight, many organizations look for the lowest upfront cost instead of the product with the greatest long-term ROI.  It’s true that SugarCRM Professional and Enterprise have one of the lowest per user licenses costs of any on-premise CRM software solution for mid-market businesses, including Microsoft Dynamics CRM. 

 7.        Salesforce.com’s Inability to Integrate Their Service with Microsoft Outlook 2010

1728 views | 2 Comments | August 25, 2010 by xRM

Whenever I read a news story about a horrific event or a devastating natural disaster, my heart goes out to the victims of the tragedy. At the same time, deep down, I’m thinking “Whew! At least it didn’t happen to me.” Although there were no bombings or earthquakes involved, I had a somewhat similar experience today as I perused the client discussion forums on the Salesforce.com website.  Being a user of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, I have no firsthand understanding of the dissatisfaction that plagues these Salesforce.com customers, but I can most certainly sympathize with their distress.

 8.        Using the Import Tool in Microsoft Dynamics CRM to Update Existing Records

1336 views | 1 Comments | May 24, 2010 by Ann Haucke, The Resource Group

Keeping a customer database up-to-date can be a time-consuming, tedious task.  While customer records can be individually opened and modified within Dynamics CRM, this is a very manual process which can consume many hours and is error prone due to individual record updates.

 9.        Microsoft launches the Customer Care Accelerator for Dynamics CRM

1259 views | 6 Comments | April 28, 2010 by Sandeep Walia, Ignify

Ignify is a specialist in implementing Microsoft Dynamics CRM for contact centers and I am excited to see that Microsoft is releasing the customer care accelerator for Dynamics CRM in 2 weeks. The Customer Care Accelerator (CCA) rolls in the Customer care framework which allows you to integrate various applications into one single unified framework and view. The CCA using the Application Integration Framework (AIF) to enable these integrations. A new section in the Settings called called UII settings has features adding the applications. Both Hosted Applications and Non-Hosted applications can be added as well as workflows that can go cross-enterprise across these applications. Bing would be an example of a web hosted application that may be integrated while a customer portal may be an external hosted applications integrated in. A desktop pricing application may be a good example of non hosted application that is integrated in.
