Once a not-so-young rep was working a long, long sales process. The price was not steep, and sometimes it was hard for the rep to tell they were progressing at all. As they moved slowly on in the sales cycle, they thought about all the different things they wanted – of a beautiful system and efficient travel to far-off places, of love and lust, of accomplishment and gadgets. The reps thoughts were so wide-ranging and so diverse, that they hardly noticed the scenery around them, or the turning of the path as it twisted slowly, slowly upwards.
One day, when the rep stopped for lunch, another man appeared on the road. The two sat down together, and began to talk. The newcomer said he had seen the man on the road ahead and been eager for company. He had left the road, and climbed a steeper path, over some rocks, so that they would meet in time for lunch. As they chatted, he talked about the spectacular cliffs and valleys, the clouds gathering overhead, and the rare birds and flowers he had spotted as he climbed. The first man listened politely, but could add little. His attention wandered, from time to time, imagining the even more spectacular things he would see – one day.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM is not implemented like other Technologies
This type of project requires experienced Microsoft Dynamics CRM project management to keep it on budget, on time, and to ensure it delivers the results you expect. Unlike back office, ERP solutions, Microsoft Dynamics CRM has unique implementation requirements. Out-of-the-box solutions only partially meet your functionality needs. If the missing parts are in key areas, you’ll have an ineffective solution at best. Most Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution implementations require customization and integration, not just simple configuration and installation. You need project managers who understand this difference and who know how to succeed.
