CRM as an Operational Platform for Financial Services: 5 Goals One Firm Achieved

Sometimes it is not what the application was designed to do, but how the application is applied to a particular situation that the real benefits are realized.

CRM Key to Business Success

A large hedge fund was looking for a single system to accomplish some very specific goals. They looked at several point solutions for the financial services industry, but all required some integration with other systems. They looked at ERP solutions, but these were too generalized without customization.

In Need of a New CRM Solution

The firm also needed a new CRM solution and chose Microsoft Dynamics CRM for handling client data and interactions. When they saw a Financial Services solution was available built on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, they realized that a single platform could be used to handle all their customer relationship management along with the other goals of the organization without trying integrate multiple software systems.

Moving to Microsoft Dynamics CRM

The switch to Microsoft Dynamics CRM helped the firm achieve the following goals:

1. Manage all investor and contact information, including forms and agreements.

2. Create a repeatable, end-to-end process for transaction processing—from initiation by the client to final settlement and cash movement—all at low risk to the firm or the client.

3. Create workflows that allow for multiple levels of controls and sign-offs, increasing efficiency while lowering risk.

4. Track financial transactions for audit purposes.

5. Manage complex, high-volume reporting requirements.

Also, because the system integrated with the firm’s back-end accounting system, all investor transactions originated in CRM were automatically transferred.

The move achieved a reduction in cost and easier integration because only one software solution was purchased and implemented.
