Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM practice at HCL is focused on providing solutions that help customers to achieve greater flexibility and operational efficiency in dealing with their customers. HCL’s service offerings span across the life-cycle of a CRM engagement starting with the Consulting in the Pre-CRM phase to Package Selection, Implementation and Post CRM implementation, Application Maintenance and upgrades.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 is Microsoft's top CRM product for Enterprise customers. Microsoft evangelizes on "Tight Integration with Outlook", "Easy Usability" and "Over 80% Out of the box functionality”.
HCL's Dynamics group believes that the CRM world is at point of inflexion in the war between "On Premise CRM Models" and "Hosted CRM Software". HCL believes that saddling both these diverse worlds of software would enable a product to win the CRM product race.
Microsoft in its quest of creating new software models has created a product that can be used both as an "On Premise Software" and a "Hosted CRM software". This in turn has made the product a winner.
The Microsoft CRM 3.0 product has grown in market acceptance across the world at over 100% for 3 consecutive years. This has happened because of
- Focus on Office/Outlook as the design center for CRM
- Put CRM capabilities into a more familiar and usable context
- Focus on reducing time and cost in CRM deployments
- Simplify installation, integration, customization, upgrades, etc
- Focus on providing customers the Power of Choice
- Enable choice of deployment models (on-premises and/or hosted)
- Enable choice of licensing models (perpetual, subscription)
- Enable choice of customer experience (Microsoft Office Outlook, Web Browser, Mobile Clients)
