Budgeting for a Dynamics 365 CRM Implementation
We take the guesswork out of budgeting for a CRM Project
We understand that one of the most stressful aspects of a CRM implementation is the cost. Specifically, there is a perception by many that what you are quoted won’t necessarily end up being what you are billed.
Although change orders sometimes do need to happen, there is no reason for a business to feel that they can’t trust that the CRM project’s budget will balloon out of control.
At CRM Dynamics we want to take the guesswork out of budgeting for a CRM project. We will work with you throughout the project to make sure that there are no surprises. Our two-decade plus experience has taught us some tricks that will reduce your cost and make the transition to the Dynamics 365 platform as smooth as possible.
Knowing what you're in for
If you are looking to take the guesswork out of budgeting for a CRM project, you should go in with your eyes wide open. During the sales process we make sure you are given all of the information you need to make decisions according to your budget.
Some costs, like license fees, are transparent and will not change. Other costs are fluid and can be controlled with proper management. The key to budgeting a CRM project is understanding the possible pratfalls and working with us to avoid them.
Plan ahead and plan smart
The biggest factor for a CRM project going over budget is change. Midway through the development process the scope of the project changes, requiring more work hours than planned.
This doesn’t need to happen. In fact, it shouldn’t. However, avoiding this common pratfall requires a smart and candid evaluation of what you want your CRM system to do. Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a powerful tool that can do many things. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of all the possibilities and ask for changes once the work has started.
That’s why it’s important to work with you before the projects begins and identify what exactly you need from Dynamics 365 and together develop an implementation plan that explains exactly what to expect in terms of budgeting.
