Microsoft Exchange Server is an enterprise-class server management system that provides the tools necessary for business professionals to collaborate with each other and with customers. Instead of traditional server downtime, a managed service provider’s servers are automatically restored when they experience problems. This ensures that your company can continue to operate efficiently even during times of server downtime. And since these services are provided by experienced service providers, you are guaranteed to get immediate assistance whenever there are problems with your Microsoft Exchange Server.
An ideal Managed Service Provider can help your business to save money, time and manpower. Rather than investing in expensive, custom-built infrastructure, you can save money by using Microsoft Exchange Server infrastructure provided by a managed services provider. In addition, unlike traditional break-fix IT services, which typically rely on your technology simply breaking down, managed IT services contract to manage your technology to ensure that it stays in optimal working condition, and takes action to promptly solve problems before they turn into long-term issues. These services contract providers will also help to train you or provide you with training if you are considering using Microsoft Exchange Server as your main email server. This will reduce the costs associated with having to hire IT professionals to handle your server issues.
But in order for your business to fully benefit from these benefits, you must use the services offered by managed service providers who specialize in Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Business Solutions Dynamics GP, Microsoft Retail Management, Microsoft CRM, and Microsoft SQL Server. These four suites offer different features and functions and therefore you must decide what features and functions you need, what type of data you collect, and how much storage capacity you require. A managed service provider will customize your Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Business Solutions Dynamics GP, as well as customize your Microsoft CRM, specifically depending on your company size. If your company is quite large, it may make more sense to work with a third-party vendor who specializes in CRM rather than trying to learn how to adapt your own software.
Microsoft Dynamics GP, like most of the other Microsoft Dynamics products, offers the following capabilities: customer Relationship Management (crm), Microsoft Small Business Solutions Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Excel Services, Microsoft Access Applications, Microsoft Dynamics GP Customer Manager, Microsoft Dynamics SL, Microsoft Dynamics ERP, Microsoft Dynamics SL DMP, Microsoft Dynamics CRM SL, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Dynamics SQL Server. Most small businesses, as well as mid-size and large companies, do not have the financial resources to install and utilize these systems, so an onsite installation by a Microsoft Dynamics consultant may be a viable solution. However, companies with IT staff on board will most likely be able to manage the software on their own. To make the most of your hosted Microsoft Dynamics GP solutions, purchase a license that allows you to use the software on multiple computers.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM is designed to be used on the internet, through a web hosting site, or by using Microsoft applications such as Visual Studio to build web applications. The CRM package contains the following components: Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Portal, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server, Microsoft Dynamics CRM SCC, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Data Warehouse, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics SL, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Store, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile, Microsoft Dynamics SL eConnect. While these are the basic modules that the CRM package provides, there are many additional capabilities that can be added to a Microsoft Dynamics CRM package for a price, usually on a per-download or per-person basis. For example, there is Microsoft Dynamics SL eConnect. eConnect is a feature that allows companies to build mobile websites without the need for programming experience and is available at no cost to the buyer.
Hyper-convergence is another capability found within Microsoft Dynamics CRM. This is also a form of managed service provisioning, where applications hosted on the cloud can access the same business applications located on the company’s internal network. The Hyper-convergence module within Microsoft Dynamics CRM is supported by Cisco Vera, an enterprise-level enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool. Cisco Vera provides support for a wide variety of third party tools and features. As a result of Cisco Vera support, it is possible to use the CRM applications stored on the company’s internal network to run the web-based CRM applications hosted in the cloud.
The ability to use a web browser to access a CRM application via the internet is another benefit to using a managed service provider for cloud computing. Since the application is on the internet, it can be accessed from anywhere in the world at any time. This is a tremendous benefit to the small business owner who is always on the road and is unable to always meet the needs of his/her employees in person. Furthermore, with a managed service provider, if a service outage occurs, it is often not too difficult for a service provider to quickly address the problem. In contrast, a company’s in house IT department may not be able to respond as quickly to a simple technical problem that occurs within the web-based CRM application.
For many companies, there are multiple solutions that they may want to consider when choosing a provider to host their CRM applications. If a business owner is looking to host their CRM solutions on the web, then they should consider two specific types of providers. The first type of provider is a Microsoft Dynamics CRM VMS (Virtual Private Server). This type of cloud hosting solution provides the basic functionality necessary for creating and maintaining customer relationship programs. It is supported by the Microsoft Dynamics GP (General Packaging Services) database. The second type of provider is a Microsoft Business Solutions Partner (MBS), which supports a full range of Microsoft Dynamics CRM VMS capabilities.
