Out of the 100’s of blog posts we push out each year (most are educational 🙂 ) – this is the most excited we have ever been to post. Microsoft has named us at PowerObjects their 2012 Microsoft Dynamics CRM Partner of the Year. We are incredibly honored and so grateful to our talented team, outstanding customers and, of course, our world class partner, Microsoft. Certain things in life require you to sit back and celebrate your success, and this is an accomplishment we will celebrate and do a little horn-tooting.
For those of you who we are lucky enough to partner with – it may be no surprise that this is a huge milestone for us. Back in 2008, we bet our business on one concept…to be 100% laser focused on driving success with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. This type of focus lets us concentrate on one thing, but more importantly, it reminds us daily what not to do!
When PowerObjects set off down this road, we put a stake in the ground as a rallying point to remind us on a daily basis where we were going. That proverbial stake was to be named the # 1 Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner in the world. Since that point, decisions have been made by asking ourselves, “Will this take us closer to our ultimate goal?” If the answer was no, it was a road we didn’t take. For those of you also in IT, you understand the amount of shiny objects coming at us daily. In our hearts we are geeks, so it is ‘oh so tempting’ to go running after something in our constantly changing industry. Luckily for us, there is so much we can do with this single product that in some ways we feel like we are just scratching the surface.
Being #1 is not just about selling software. Sure that has to happen, but we also need to service our customers well, offer top notch support, create value every step of the way, and create raving fans out of our customers. We surround CRM with the four pillars we see as building blocks – Service – Support – Education – Add-ons. To provide the best service in the world, our support team and systems have to be second to none. We educate and give back to the Dynamics CRM community, and we create inexpensive add-ons that drive both value and user adoption.
So what do we do now that we have reached our goal? Well, we look at it like winning a Superbowl or getting a Best Picture – we can always win again! But no matter what happens in years to come, we will always have this award and know we are playing on a team that is the best in the world! We will take our winning team and keep our fanatical focus on Dynamics CRM, and keep helping our customers both large and small. We will stay true to our core values and use our success to continue to make Microsoft Dynamics CRM the #1 CRM platform in the world…..and we will do a little celebrating along the way 🙂
