Medica needed a solution that would give them easy access to business intelligence, integrate with other Microsoft technologies, and enable effective communications across departments—all on a rapid timeline. This is why Medica implemented Microsoft Dynamics CRM with PowerObjects as their partner. Key benefits include a rapid design, build, and launch timeline allowing Medica to roll out the solution quickly; the ability to extract, update, and modify data without needing developer resources; and consolidate customer history easily accessible from one place.
