With CRM deployment, you are now in a better position to grow your company since you can have a thorough understanding of your clientele. But did you know that by extending and integrating your CRM with the rest of your tech stack, you can do much more?

In this blog, we are talking about the custom apps—your go-to solution to fulfil your specific business needs and extend the functionality of your CRM.

How are custom apps efficient and cost-effective for your business?

Custom apps make it easier to implement additional functionality swiftly and also work on new capabilities quickly and cost-effectively. With these integrated apps, you don’t need to purchase additional CRM license for occasional CRM users to access a limited data set. The app auto-populates crucial data from the CRM system and makes it available to all users. Custom apps also boost marketing and improve customer satisfaction by adding value to your CRM and managing data at every step.

Apart from this, a single CRM system can look congested and become harder to navigate for all the team members especially if they are from different teams requiring different insights. Custom applications are a great way to streamline access management for disparate areas or silos within your Dynamics 365 environment.

Using the mobile CRM features and custom apps on your phone, you can receive live notifications to remain up to date, automate data entry, contact clients via the app, track email openings, keep a to-do list, and track your sales funnel. Additionally, if you use Dynamics 365 CRM, you have access to a range of useful apps that can be further customised according to your needs.

Explore how you can unleash true potential of your CRM, boost your team’s productivity, and get intelligent insights from anywhere with our custom-made CRM integrated apps.

a) Timesheet app for Project Service Automation

It is usually tedious for employees to have to log their workhours every day or, sometimes, every hour in the CRM system. What’s more, this will also be costly, requiring a license for each user. But with this CRM integrated app, this is no longer an issue.

Thanks to this simple-to-use app, Timesheet app for Project Service Automation, your employees can record their workhours, retrieve allotted time entries from CRM and sync adjustments made on the app without the need to further login. An accurate and updated time tracking helps project managers identify billable and non-billable hours to properly and promptly pay their staff.

Enhance the functionality of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement with these apps:

a) Referral App

Don’t you want to simplify the documentation process in your CRM?

During a referral process, compiling the documents and matching the details of each referral with existing corresponding contacts in the system takes a lot of time and often results in duplication and erroneous data, which requires further mitigation. An integrated app in CRM can help you speed up the process, ensuring data accuracy as the app auto-populates the required data, thereby, automating the process.

Referral App, —which we have designed for social services, membership charities and legal organisations—loads the referrals directly from the app, whether in Word, Excel, or PDF, identifies the data and pulls it into the app. Then, the employees can have a final review and send the data, which automates the data update in Dynamics 365, saving you a lot of time.

  • Capture responses without manual documentation because the app does it for you.
