We chose to switch from Salesforce.com to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, not only because it is cost-effective, but it seamlessly fit in with our existing systems like Office, SharePoint and Lync, and gave us a rich feature set and overall the most value for our investment,” said Doug Elkins, CIO, ABC Financial. “With Microsoft Dynamics CRM in place, we now have the tools to manage our customers and their experience, and can focus on growing our business.
