Microsoft Crm 3.0 The Greatest!! Microsoft Crm Review
Q: Dynmics CRM 3.0 is the answer to my prayers!! I have looked at so many solutions... Web based: What happens if a web based CRM company pulls an Enron or Wolrdcom?? Do you think they care about all your contacts??Potential to be a show stopper for your company... ACT/Goldmine: ACT! wil slow any pc down to a crawl...not even big blue has enough computing poweer to handle it...Goldmine has its quirks... So I blindly sold CRM 3.0 to a customer as a I remember I went to some MS conference about 3 years ago (2002) about a CRM product and I was impressed then...so as I rushed home to install CRM 3.0 into a virtual environement...I installed CRM 3.0 without reading any manuals on best practices etc...this approach in my opinion lets you know how difficult the installation is....and the installation on the server was prett smooth...almost idiot proof...I then went to the workstation and installed the Outlook desktop client...also pretty smooth install....almost idiot proof....I got some errors of CRM not being able to load....so googled the error and then simply created a role based user in the CRM deployment console...and logged onto a workstation as that user....Worked like a charm!! The product has everything I was hoping for with the ease of use and intuitive GUI. All contact information plus all documsnets, contracts, sales meetings, follow ups...etc are all located in 1 central place.....my customer currently has an access database with 5 fields to store some customer info while the rest is paper based...once I show him this I will have a custome for life...this is why I like Microsoft! Except for SBS NT4.5 (HORROR stories that no war has ever encountered) I LOVE MICORSOFT!!! KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK!!! CRM 3.0 IS the answer to the current gap in the market!!! I am going to make a real push on this.... One big question I have: How do you migrate Contact Information into CRM3.0 and what formats does the import support?
A: There is a data migration framework under development right now. My understanging (through rumors and assumptions) is that this will be available within the next few months. I assume it will look similar to the 1.2 migration framework which if you want a rough idea you can chek out at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/CrmS...
