Dynamics CRM gives you the ability to track customer interactions, but the trail ends when customer information leaves Dynamics CRM and enters your accounting and ERP systems. Getting customer history into CRM can fuel your marketing lists and campaigns with quality leads. However, to access customer financial information in CRM often requires manually rekeying the data.
The CData SSIS Components make it easy to automate manual processes that often attend accessing your customers in CRM. The components enable you to see Dynamics CRM and QuickBooks as data sources and data destinations. We'll show how in 10 steps you can transfer your QuickBooks customers into CRM accounts.
