On July 9th, 2012 Forrester Research published an article entitled “The Forrester Wave: CRM Suites For Large Organizations, Q3 2012” by William Band. The article detailed a comprehensive overview of the 17 most significant CRM solutions available in the marketplace today and added additional insight into the current landscape and trends in the CRM software marketplace. I have yet to dissect the entire article; as Microsoft Partners we quickly skimmed straight to the findings on Microsoft CRM and were happy to see that Microsoft rates right at the top among the leaders in the space with Oracle Siebel, SAP, and Salesforce. There was great dialogue around what companies need to do to compete in today’s CRM marketplace and there is a lot to discuss there.
Project Management in Microsoft Dynamics CRM
The article highlights that Microsoft does not develop industry specific solutions in CRM and notes the fact that industry solutions are provided by Microsoft Partners. An example of this is the Project Management solution, ProRM, which adds rich functionality specific to project management in Microsoft Dynamics CRM including: contact to project completion project management, resource management, Gantt charting, employee/resource Gantt charting, time sheet functionality/time entry, time approvals, project planning, project controlling, and automated project invoice creation. The solution is perfect for organizations that need project management functionality, but would also like to leverage their existing Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation. Using proRM significantly lowers the total cost of ownership for existing Microsoft Dynamics CRM users and enables integration with the native functionality and data within Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
