Microsoft Dynamics 365 Blog

A guest post from the CRM Software Blog…

Lots of companies use a CRM system. But often it is just seen as a glorified Rolodex for the sales team to manage contacts.  But there is so much more. It is time to think
outside of the box. CRM users are finding that necessity is the mother of invention when it comes to finding solutions to their sometimes unique problems or processes.

The CRM Software Blog just released a fun new white paper called “24 Wildly Creative Ways Companies Use Microsoft Dynamics CRM to Drive Revenue and Serve Customers”.  It shows some of the unique solutions that CRM
users have come up with. Maybe these suggestions can solve some of your sticky problems, or maybe they will stir your creative juices and inspire you to come up with a solution of your own.

For example, read about the:

  • National league baseball team using predictive analysis to
    anticipate buying trends.
  • Franchise management company using CRM to keep their sales
    team off the road. 
  • Forklift manufacturing company that gives clients the option
    to configure their orders on mobile devices.
  • Rental company using Microsoft Dynamics CRM to schedule all
    their assets across locations.
  • Industrial electronics repair company that can track their
    entire order process in Microsoft Outlook.
  • Financial services company that is finally able to rate the
    value of their referral relationships.
  • Non-Profit using Microsoft Dynamics CRM to track a complex
    inventory process that now operates on 55% of their previous budget.

I think you will be interested in this white paper if you want to prove the business value of CRM software, evaluate the flexibility of Microsoft Dynamics CRM or be inspired to use CRM in wildly creative ways for your own business.

I especially like the fact that this is not your typical long boring white paper format. It is engaging and actually kind of fun to read.

CRM is the right choice.
