Sparkassen Network Consulting Bayern GmbH adopt new Project and Resource Management Solution
Microsoft Success Story: proRM from proMX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM reduces man-hours for project processes in the individual business areas by an average of 15 percent
“Sparkassen Network Consulting (snc) Bayern GmbH is one of our leading Banking clients, and we're very happy that after such a positive introductory phase we are seeing such strong results,“ stated Peter Linke, CEO at proMX GmbH. “After the launch phase and the cross-over into the productive phase, feedback has been extremely positive. That goes for both the users themselves and the company management. The numbers – a 15% reduction in task hours - couldn't give a clearer endorsement of our product.”
A further result of the successful collaboration is that, just six months after launching, the first follow-
Heterogeneous Infrastructure creates Red Tape
Like many companies, snc's internal infrastructure had, over timer, taken on a distinctive form. While staff, for example, were booking group meetings and tasks in Outlook, work schedules and activity plans were being generated in Excel. In addition the company was using CRM-Software for client addresses, project time planning and performance charts. “The multiplicity of data sources made our system very complex. Our solutions were keeping our clients happy, but they were having a negative impact on our staff, particularly in terms of administration,”
Lift-off for the new CRM-Project was April 2011. In just two months, the project team succeeded in transfering all the relevant data to Dynamics CRM. 85 percent of the snc requirements were covered by the standard version of the Microsoft solution software. The software amendments required to meet snc's technical idiosyncrasies were almost entirely met by formula adjustments. This meant that after a short Test Phase the system could go online.
Since last year 25 employees at snc are working with proRM 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. On their Notebooks they're exclusively using the natively integrated Client in Outlook. With the sales, resource and project-management solution offered by proRM 2011, the consultancy firm was able to consolidate all customer related tasks on a single platform. This included, in addition to the project-management and the entire sales process, the marketing, project accounts and customer service functions. In order to illustrate the added value, transparent customer and project information is now accessible to all of the employees. Management dashboards now inform staff on, for example, the status of the sales pipeline, targets met and hours billed per project.
