Better business intelligence viewed on one dashboard

In a data-driven culture, decisions are based on facts but often these facts can come across your desk as reports, spreadsheets, emails with charts, and even printed handouts. It is easy to lose track and worry that you do not have the most up-to-date information.

By making insights and analytics tools accessible to everyone in your organization you can break down silos and visualize and discover what's important.

2021 new features for the Charity Sector

Microsoft are also committed to helping the charity sector so a number of required Licenses you will need for your platform will be FREE. Dynamics 365 grant is (free for up to 5 users) and/or Power Apps grant is (free for up to 10 users), with most other Apps discounted by 80% too.

Firewalls and remote working?

Microsoft Azure Firewall, which is a part of Dynamics 365 platform, prevents malware from entering corporate networks, blocks phishing attacks, and protects business-critical data. With remote working becoming the new normal it might be shocking to know that only 45% of firms have conducted additional security checks. 

Future-proofing your company

Dynamics 365 is a cloud platform, SaaS (Software as a service), so you are consuming a service rather than installing a product. However, where it differs from others is that you only pay for what you use, as most Licences are based on consumption. You are also not tied into a contract either, it's paid and cancelled on a monthly basis.

Configuration to delivery can be as little as 3-5 weeks, even if you have legacy systems. Dynamics 365 has been designed for specific sectors so we then configure it to suit the needs of your company.

CRM made simple for schools in 2021

Why integrated Apps are useful for Cleaning Companies

When running a carpet cleaning or cleaning business there are lots of aspects to consider. Receiving reports from the field, assigning cleaning jobs to the right staff, and the all-important feedback. Using free apps like What’s App and Waze are useful but they don’t integrate with other systems so you can’t achieve full reporting.

When all your reports and communication are fed directly back into Dynamics 365 CRM, Operations managers will gain a 360-degree view.

Nikki Riddle - Marketing Manager
The Licences I have presently are at manageable costs and I know I can scale up over the years by buying more. The advice I have had from Inturi has been invaluable and I will consult further with them as my business scales.

The Dynamics 365 healthcare vertical and has everything we need, meaning that it can be configured to a bespoke structure for us. In addition, all system updates from Microsoft will automatically transfer to our cloud-based CRM
