Everything can be tailored according to your company’s need and incorporated smoothly with other critical systems.
xRM solutions offer flexibility and customization to meet almost any business or organizational need. Integrating an xRM solution with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM will provide you with several important advantages.
Automation at its best – Microsoft Dynamics integration with xRM automates important tasks that employees would otherwise have to complete manually.
Rapid deployment – Developers do not have to worry about building an LOB software from scratch, as software plugins extend the functionality of the core Microsoft Dynamics CRM system.
Robust Security – Another key advantage is that xRM provides robust security features. It has security roles for users and objects that restrict access to sensitive data, SSL connections for data transfer, and more.
Native Integration – xRM solutions can connect existing systems to CRM, freeing data trapped in outdated systems. Microsoft Dynamics CRM also provides native integration with Microsoft SharePoint® and Microsoft Office® applications including Outlook®, Excel®, and Word.
