Chicago (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
Sonoma Partners, a leading Microsoft Dynamics CRM consultancy with expertise in enterprise mobility, announced today that the company has been selected by Burns & McDonnell, a top full-service engineering, architecture, construction, environmental and consulting services firm, to manage its Dynamics CRM deployment.
In the past five years, Burns & McDonnell has doubled in size to more than 3,700 employees and sought a solution to support its growth through increased productivity and an improved client experience. With a range and depth of experience assisting professional services firms and providing innovative developments for Microsoft Dynamics CRM users, Sonoma Partners offered Burns & McDonnell a CRM solution for its 1,600-seat deployment to meet its business requirements and enhance client relationships.
“Sonoma Partners was able to offer a solution in line with our IT strategy, unlocking the power of valuable data,” said Kris Paper, Principal and Information Technology Director, of Burns & McDonnell. “Microsoft Dynamics CRM will provide a valuable tool for our sales force. It’s easy to use, flexible and able to integrate the client experience across all 11 of our global practices. I’m confident this will lead to a better sales experience for our clients and support our continuing growth.”
The new system will allow business development and project managers in different locations and global practices to more easily access, share and use information, allowing all involved to oversee the full range of activities related to a client’s experience – key events, project pursuits and customer interactions –from a familiar interface. Microsoft Dynamics provides a CRM solution that extends from Burns & McDonnell’s Microsoft Outlook and SharePoint 2010 collaboration framework, allowing employees to collaborate and communicate more effectively.
