Purely CRM Christmas Lunch

Purely CRM Christmas Lunch

As our team grows bigger every year, we're excited to see what the new year brings us. 2018 has been a great year of growth, and it’s important that we take the team to appreciate our team. Here's a few photos of Purely's team at our Christmas lunch, celebrating the holidays.

This year's festive season donations

This year's festive season donations

It’s that time of year when we look back and reflect and realize how fortunate we are to have what we have; warm homes, plenty of food, our health and good friends, to mention just a few of the positive aspects of our lives. Sadly not everyone is as fortunate as we are. It is important that we take the time to appreciate what we have, and to give back when we can.

This year, on behalf of all of us, Purely CRM will be making a $700 donation to the following charities: 

Ronald McDonald House Vancouver https://rmhbc.ca/

Covenant House Vancouver https://www.covenanthousebc.org/

Autism Community Training https://www.actcommunity.ca/

We wish everyone happy holidays and the best to everyone in the new year.

Purely CRM Christmas Party 2018

Team Building

Team Building

It is essential that a team works like a well-oiled machine when it comes to approaching Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM projects. That's why we had a company team building event in Whistler to optimize our team to better meet all your needs. 

First hand witnessing the changing nature of work through CRM

First hand witnessing the changing nature of work through CRM

It starts with a simple task:  Codify a business process

Most companies realize they have a business process that is probably not as efficient as it could be.  Perhaps it is an Excel spreadsheet or an MS-Word document that is being passed around the organization in an inefficient manner.  There is often the realization that if they take the disconnected spreadsheets and forms and back-ended them into a database, they can easily eliminate wasted time, rekeying of data, and eliminating some simple review processes and calculations.

You end up codifying the entire department

What starts out as a task to eliminate inefficiencies in one business process inevitably sprawls into another department.  The touch-point of information with other departments or with customers and suppliers will definitely be inputs or outputs into the business process that you are making more efficient.  Why not modify those processes too while you are at it?  Before you know it, you have modified the business processes of an entire department.

Job roles will change

Changing business processes will also inevitably lead to changing job duties.  The mundane error checking of paper forms or re-keying of information into various spreadsheets or miscellaneous forms is going away.  What is left behind in a business process is the essence of what the job truly is and what only the human can accomplish.  The human element in business processes is not going away with the current changing nature of business processes through electronic efficiencies but is now focusing employees on the higher value evaluations that are needed in business processes.

We are removing the mundane work with technology and opening up our eyes to the true value employees (i.e., humans) play in a business process.

The season of giving

It’s the season of giving and it’s important that we take every opportunity to appreciate how fortunate we are, and that we ensure that we give back to the community just as much as we receive. This year we will be donating to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank along with gifts to keep those in need warm through the winter. We wish everyone happy holidays and a happy new year.

Key Takeaways from the Microsoft Partner Briefing 2017

Key Takeaways from the Microsoft Partner Briefing 2017

Many new features are coming, here are some of our highlights.

UNIFIED USER INTERFACE

For a simpler and more consistent user experience, all interfaces are now fully unified as of the Spring release, with the web browsers as an intermediate interface so far. The web browsers will move to a fully unified interface in the Fall 2017 release. Many common complaints and modernizations have been addressed, as well as tabs returning to the web interface instead of the dropdown menu. Multi-select option sets are coming too! There will be no more need to simulate a multi-select option set.

BUSINESS EDITION

The long-awaited Business edition plan is finally launching, suitable for SMB companies (<250 users). Simple to set-up and low cost, it is an easy starting point to purchase needed apps. As your organization grows, it will be easy to upgrade to the Enterprise plans. However, this update is delayed from June 1st to September 1st due to a big launch for the product that is scheduled at that time.

DYNAMICS MARKETING

A new and improved Marketing app is launching, with a much better module compared to the old module. There is a directional move towards the Adobe Marketing Cloud as a preferred solution, once Adobe has finished integrating with Cloud 365. This will be available for Business plan customers and Enterprise plans. 

 

See below for some of our photos from the briefing!

Lunch n' Learn!

Having a great Lunch n' Learn here at the office, great way to kick off the weekend!

What Makes a Project Successful?

What Makes a Project Successful?

The key elements to a successful project

Get to know your client

Completing a project does not only include meeting deadlines and completing tasks. Knowing your client and taking the time to fully understand their wants and needs can allow you to incorporate more elements that make that product specific to the company. In taking the time to understand them, it strengthens the connection between you and your client, creating a more well-rounded product. 

All hands on deck

Essential for an efficient project, the team must work like a well-oiled machine. In working together to achieve the project’s goals, it ensures that all ideas and opinions are heard, optimizing your team’s productivity and problem-solving abilities. With deadlines fast approaching, it will be guaranteed that your team will always be on time. 

Know your product

As the creator, you have to know all the ins and outs of your product. Without thorough knowledge, your product will not meet your client’s expectations, much less your own. To maximize efficiency, that knowledge is key. Along the way, your client may have different requests and expectations, or problems may arise. Knowing your product will let you give better or alternate solutions to what your customer is asking for, allowing you to give the best product that you can within the scope of your client.

What A Party!

What A Party!

Great Turnout

It was amazing to see so many of our customers come out to the Purely CRM 2015 Holiday party this year.  We were honoured with the opportunity to see so many of our clients in a casual setting like we had.  We would like to thank each and every one of you who had the opportunity to come out and mingle with us.  Next year we will have to pick an even larger venue!

A Fabulous Year

We can not believe that another year has already past!  The time just flies when you spend the time doing what you love and have great, great customers.  We have been growing so fast that we have actually had to move offices twice this year because we have simply outgrown our old spaces.  Not only has our customer base grown, but our staff have grown enormously as well.  We all look forward to finishing up the year with a full head of steam and continuing to service our customers with what we love to do most: consult on customer relationship management software.

We Wish You All Happy Holidays!
