5 Mistakes to Avoid When Implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is an integrated CRM and ERP software suited to every organization due to its in-depth customer insights reporting and integrated compliance management capabilities.

Dynamics 365 CRM implementation is not a simple task; you need to contact a Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner to implement the software in your organization efficiently. This blog discusses the top five mistakes organizations make when implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 and how our iterative delivery approach helps reduce the risk of these mistakes.

  • 1. Over-customisation:
    Using the company's APIs to integrate with Dynamics 365 software results in lower development costs, higher scalability, and faster implementations. Some of the most important advantages are listed below.

    How to avoid this:
    While Microsoft Dynamics 365 enables companies to modify their business processes to fit the software, a successful CRM system should be tailored to the firm's requirements. At Online24x7, we ensure we comprehend your business requirements through a solution roadmap and program strategy that considers your unique business objectives before we start the implementation process.

  • 2. Forgetting the user:
    Although Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers many great features, not every user will be able to use them. When delivering the solution, many businesses and implementation partners fail to consider the needs of the users, which frequently results in a CRM system that can only be used by a small number of people rather than the entire organization or is viewed as being overly complex by users who only require a portion of the functionality.

    How to avoid this:
    At Online24x7, we implement Microsoft Dynamics 365 using a role-based strategy, ensuring that people in each department can operate the system effectively.

  • 3. Making too many changes at once
    When deploying Microsoft Dynamics 365, many firms are eager to solve their business concerns instantly, and this leads to high initial expenses and significant time commitments.
    This kind of "big bang" implementation can be challenging to adjust rapidly too, which causes fatigue throughout the organization and makes stakeholders lose interest in the project since they don't immediately perceive any advantages.

    How to Avoid This:
    Implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 should not be a monolithic process, where an entire CRM solution is created from the ground up and published all at once. Instead, you should focus on implementing system elements where the most significant positive impact can be made in the shortest amount of time.
    At Online24x7, we prioritize your business requirements against Microsoft Dynamics 365 and create a delivery roadmap to gain results quickly.

  • 4.Making an effort to automate all business processes:
    While automation is fantastic, it must only be used in situations when it can have the most significant positive impact. If automation is attempted before your business processes have been established, it may automate the incorrect processes.

    How to avoid this:
    Instead of following a rigid implementation model, our approach is flexible, priority-led, and adaptable. Online24x7 works with and engages your business and develops a solution built to support organizational change.
    Through our ongoing assessment of your business needs, we work to deliver continuous improvement even after the CRM system is implemented.

  • 5. Forgetting the more extensive picture
    To be successful, a Dynamics 365 rollout must be carried out in manageable, well-defined stages. However, companies frequently lose sight of the overall objective by becoming overly focused on each particular phase. Many companies skip post-live training and development because they believe the project is over once the technology is operational.

    How to avoid this:
    From this initial analysis at Online24x7, our experts prioritize your business requirements against Microsoft Dynamics 365, creating a delivery roadmap to provide your business with clarity on the solution we will deliver, how soon we can implement it, and the overall cost.
