The ChallengeAllvotec had acquired a large company which uses Dynamics 365, and after seeing the benefits of the product, they decided to make Dynamics 365 their main CRM system. Due to the license expiring for their legacy system, they only had 2 or 3 weeks of time to get all data migrated and make the new system live. They were focused on avoiding the threat of losing data during the transition.
The SolutionWe worked closely with Allvotec to capture their sales flow data in Dynamics templates, then uploaded the data to Dynamics 365 in a neat and efficient manner. Within a week, we moved Allvotec to Dynamics 365 for Sales. This quick migration saved them time, and it was completed entirely remotely. Since they had more than a hundred licences on their previous system, we also saved them a huge cost on their licensing model. All records were made available for them to refer to old data. This involved adding a link in Excel so they could navigate directly to their old system. To capture information related to prospects, customers, and opportunities, we created custom fields in Accounts, Contacts, and Opportunities. During data migration, all the active opportunities were captured in the right stage as in the legacy system. We also created views and reports for accurate identification and analysis of data, and after go-live, we created processes and dashboards based on the user feedback received.
