Michigan State University Document Management - Customer Success StoryMassive public universities like Michigan State University (MSU) juggle a constant challenge: streamlining operations while maintaining a large number of documents. But when it came to document management, MSU faced even more significant hurdles: an outdated SharePoint system and potential skyrocketing storage fees on their new CRM platform, Salesforce.

Their saving grace? Getting all those documents to a new SharePoint using a powerful tool called Document Extractor. This innovative software seamlessly integrated with both SharePoint and Salesforce, allowing MSU to:

    • Slash storage costs: Document Extractor efficiently migrated MSU's documents to a new, cost-effective SharePoint system.
    • Boost document accessibility: Documents became readily available from both Salesforce and SharePoint, empowering university-wide collaboration.
    • Maintain user workflows: The genius of Document Extractor? It leaves behind links for each document in Salesforce, ensuring users can access documents without any disruption to their daily routines.

And in case you are wondering if there could be a similar solution for a Dynamics 365 environment, the answer is Yes! You can use the integration with SharePoint provided by Microsoft itself and complement it with the Dynamics 365 + SharePoint Document Management Suite as described in this article (spoiler alert: if you just use the Microsoft integration you can get yourself into trouble!)
