The story: Achieving a CRM Implementation That Really "Took Off"

Hear from IT decision makers and key users how Belimo leveraged HSO's expertise and Microsoft's technology to achieve a seamless global CRM implementation that really took off.

Partnering with HSO

To achieve a global roll-out, Belimo needed a Microsoft partner who could seamlessly deliver across borders to streamline their CRM into one system, keeping any adaptations to a strict minimum. Additionally, they needed a partner who could configure the new system with SAP and create a nice and useable interface. They also wanted a reliable and scalable platform for integration, that would also suit other/future integrations. Having been part of the running against three other partners, Belimo chose HSO International for this job. This was due to their industry experience and global experience, with both a global presence and the capability to give global support after the go-live. Moreover, HSO’s ability to work with and challenge Belimo on key implementation decisions marked them out at the winning contender.

The process

Belimo and HSO worked together to achieve a timely and successful roll out of Dynamics 365 across the business. To do this, HSO used a combination of classic waterfall analysis and an agile realisation. This meant that at the outset the parameters and timings were clearly set. Once the project was underway HSO then used an agile approach with three-week sprints followed by a scrum meeting. This meant validation could be collected from the business throughout the process, so adaptations could be made along the way.

The results

Delivered ahead of time

The result was a smooth process with the go live date brought forward to be delivered 2 months ahead of time. In 2021 the project went live in 5 pilot countries. In 2022 it was delivered in the 15 more countries, with 11 more to go, along with continued developments and improvements. HSO have also delivered a Dynamics 365 Marketing implementation as well as further support of the Digital Customer Experience.
