  • Take the “C” out of “CRM” and you‘re left with Microsoft Dynamics Relationship Management—and that‘s the right way to think about this product. Microsoft Dynamics CRM is not just about sales and marketing. It‘s a platform for developing line of business applications—applications that manage and track information and processes around real-world objects. The object could be a customer, but it could also be a grant, building, or a potential candidate for hire. The key question is: ―do I need to track the information and activities related to this entity?‖ If the answer is ―yes, Microsoft CRM deserves some serious consideration. “ - Ascentium

  • Well, you’re probably thinking of I can completely re-write the User Interface in ASP.NET, then what value is CRM? Well, the UI piece is only a fraction and the really value is in the platform...
  • xRM is the platform that addresses these IT challenges and aids organizations with their business needs and innovation. With a shared environment and resources using reusable building blocks and a consistent user experience. xRM provides the flexibility to rapidly develop these functional and highly scalable LOB applications.
  • So what we have done is built upon what you would normally start with to build an application. the .Net Platform and SQL ServerBUILD 1Then we built a set of capabilities that are germane to any business application– a configurable data model, enterprise class integrated workflow, user interface integration, analytics, and most importantly a set of tools that allows business analysts and IT to collaborate in building applicationsBUILD2It is this platform and tools that have allowed:USDA to build a conservation contract management system. They track farms, plots of land, and cattle. An application you can’t buy off the shelf. Embrace Pet Insurance – to track Owners, Pet, and Vets. They literally provide medical insurance for petsUS Air Force – uses the application for any kind of task management – from equipment tracking requests to troop deployments. It is currently being used at Camp Victory in Bagdhad. Raymond James – who found it was easier and cheaper to configure financial services CRM with our platform rather than buy a traditional FINS CRM system that was built to meet the needs of every type of financial institution, thus not meeting the needs of any of them. Then along came Embrace Pet Insurance. The company literally provides medical insurance for pets. They were looking to build an application to support their business, but the cost they were quoted was vastly more than this start-up could afford. They began looking at systems that might provide some of the functionality they needed and Microsoft Dynamics CRM popped up. So, they approached Invoke with the project. Once again, Ross looked at using Microsoft CRM 3.0 as the platform. But this time he approached it with a more open mind and began to see the advantages. CRM would provide all the core functionality Embrace needed, like user management, roles and security, and a solid data model. And the customizable entities made it easy to convert opportunities to insurance quotes, contacts to pet owners, and accounts to veterinary hospitals. Soon, and with a minimum of effort, Embrace‘s customer service representatives had their internal system and were using it to track quotes, policies and process claims. Skipping all the painstaking platform work allowed Ross and his team to focus on the really juicy part of the project—Embrace‘s web portal. The portal was a key part of Embrace‘s business strategy, providing customers with the ability to get quotes and purchase policies online. Ross‘ team was able to build the web portal on top of Microsoft CRM and spend their time getting it right by providing a great Web 2.0 user experience for Embrace customers. The web portal hooks into CRM, reading and updating data behind the scenes. Using the power of Microsoft CRM‘s SDK, web service, and APIs, they were able to finish the project in about six months time and at a fraction of the cost, including the licensing. Ross was converted. Currently, Ross is a lead architect and director of Software Development. As a director, he‘s found using Microsoft CRM has many other benefits. For one thing, it prevents burn-out on his team. Custom development takes a lot of time and while designing a database and a platform might be fun at the beginning, by the end it‘s just drudgery. You wind up spending most of your budget on the foundation and the least amount of time coding the most important parts to your client, the functionality. Microsoft CRM provides for ―Very fast turn-around on our projects. We don‘t have many projects going on for years,‖ says Ross. ―The burn-out isn‘t as bad because you aren‘t working on the same projects for years. You get lots of variety.‖ Another benefit is that it cuts down on the tedious platform design work and the many meetings, documents, and reviews that have to take place as part of the platform design process. Microsoft gets to do all of that, while his developers are ―getting their hands dirty by coding and creating features.‖ And now, he extols the benefits of using Microsoft CRM as a platform. As an architect for projects, he can‘t remember saying no to a customer yet. Microsoft CRM has all of the infrastructure and the hooks he needs, right out of the box. Its event model and broad functionality mean that hooking in is very, very easy. So when a customer asks, ―Can you…?‖ So far Ross‘s answer has always been, ―Yes.‖
  • Microsoft software + services is designed to deliver the best of both software and services so customers can choose what makes the most sense for their business needs.A consistent user experience across delivery models allows companies to focus on user and business productivity rather than the deployment technology. A common architecture and data model across deployment methods enables companies to leverage their investment in skills, tools and solutions once, regardless of the deployment choices … rather than reinvesting in multiple tools and systems to support multiple deployment models. The flexibility of being able to mix and match deployment models enables companies to support their unique and specific business requirements, such as serving headquarters’ users through an on-premise deployment while using a hosted model for remote divisions or distributed operations.More importantly, the adaptability of being able to change deployment models at any time ensures that the system can meet the company’s changing business needs … as divisions are added, moved off-shore, acquisitions happen, etc.. This ability not only offers the benefits of both software and service, but it helps to mitigate the risks of getting locked into any single delivery method.Microsoft Dynamics CRM represents a prime example of how enterprises can leverage software plus services today:Hybrid – Mix on-premise and hosted deployments, i.e. headquarters uses on-premise while remote offices use on-demand; or start with one and move to the other. Rich Clients – Microsoft understands the need to offer end-user experiences that span the user’s devices and modes of work.

  • Now as you can see from the build, the scenario is a complex one and there are many parallel things going on at the same time taskers get assigned and closed. In fact what is shown here is just a simple view compared to some real-life tasking that may result in many more organizations and AOs being involved. Now how does TMT help me understand this process and offer me insight into the life of this tasker?
  • TMT includes a Tasker Status viewWith sometaskers involving dozens of interactions and various organizations and AO’s in play, understanding who is involved and their status can be complicated. We make it easy with one view showing us situation awareness. I can see all the different assignments associated with this one tasker.I can easily see who is involved, their role in the tasker process, their suspense data and any completion date. I get visual indicators how well this tasker is proceeding. It does not show it here, but the text will be colored in red if overdue or yellow if due within their given threshold, such as within 24 hours of their assigned suspense date.
  • Platform – Air Force (Request for Forces – RFF)“The Request for Forces process is used when additional ground forces, air forces or naval forces are needed for a particular unit. The RFF Tracker solution built with Microsoft gives us a collaborative workspace in order to ensure that everybody’s got the information they need in the same workspace, so the organizations on multiple air force bases, multiple functional area managers, multiple management nodes along the whole joint force process can all access that knowledge and make sure they all stay on the same sheet of music. We’re extending out of its traditional role, not only looking at things like the RFF Tracker but into operational case management, director of staff task management, suspense tracking, we’re actually looking at this for various pre-flight briefing tools with the war-fighter edge community.”
