Sales management is the most common but still the most diverse process that we encounter across projects.
It is often the starting point of a CRM project because selling requires a clear view of the customer journey inside your company.
CRM success depends on understanding your selling model and guiding sales, and their supporting teams, to opportunity management and assembling the right information from external systems (ERP).
Sales and customer management generate Marketing needs. Companies approach marketing in different ways. How broadly and how deeply marketing is addressed within each company depends on its business, culture and traditions. Our experts assess the possible fit with Dynamics for Marketing, Adobe campaign Management, and Click Dimensions. When customers have a preferred marketing automation solution, ELCA finds the best way to integrate it with Dynamics. In that situation Dynamics is used to define segmentations and the marketing automation tool does the message processing, feeding information back to Dynamics.
The Service part of a CRM often requires a rigorous approach to how an incident is addressed and how to forward it to support levels. Dynamics brings a set of functionalities to support queuing, a knowledge base, and respect of SLAs. This already rich platform can be complemented by other tools, such as Unified Service Desk, to build a high-performance agent-oriented UI.
The complete omnichannel layer of a Service project is supported by solutions such as CafeX and Genesys, which are needed to build a pure customer-centric scenario on all channels.
While Service is about providing remote assistance to customers, Field Service provides a complete Field Service management solution, including service locations, customer assets, preventative maintenance, work order management, resource management, product inventory, scheduling and dispatch, mobility, collaboration, customer billing, and analytics. A dedicated mobile app enables the Field Agent to provide real-time information about his or her location and ongoing interventions.
In any project from Sales, to Service/Field Service, to Marketing, and Project Service Automation … we can expose part of a business process to external resources. Then Dynamics becomes the back-end of a collaborative system where a portal enables opening a support case, entering a lead or, e.g., reading information about project consumption. This is where solutions like Dynamics Portal of Sitefinity and Pavliks Connector are used. We are also able to use our connector to integrate other portals.
Finance and Operations
A cloud-based system, Microsoft Dynamics for Finance and Operation is the ERP component of Dynamics and offers the ability to keep track of finances and inventory. Larger enterprises can benefit from integrated retail, manufacturing, HR, supply chain, and more general functionality in the Enterprise Edition. ELCA is one of the very few companies with references and certified resources for both CRM and ERP.
