How can our Microsoft Dynamics for Financial Services solution be applied in practice?
Microsoft Dynamics can help insurance organisations to manage relationships across different stakeholders such as agencies, customers, brokers and other partners.

What advantages can Microsoft Dynamics provide to financial services organisations?
Develop & maintain customer relationships
Being able to have a firm grasp of the needs & priorities of your customers is pivotal in your ability to deliver only the best customer service as well as helpful in generating loyalty. Given the competitive nature of the financial services sector, customer service has to be exceptional. Furthermore, if you don’t have the right kind of technology in place, you could easily fall behind your competitors. In addition to this, Microsoft Dynamics can hold much more data about your customers which can include their basic contact details, emails received, products/services consumed & much more. This is crucial as it enables all your employees to have the latest information about their customers to allow them to communicate with them effectively.
Improve overall productivity
By having all your data in one place can help to improve your overall productivity as your employees won’t have to spend time dipping between multiple systems to gather the data they require which means the time saved can be spent on the most important part of your business: your customers.
Furthermore, given that Microsoft Dynamics is a cloud-based solution means that it is fully accessible cross multiple devices which is handy given the current climate.
Making use of insights to revolutionise sales & marketing
From working with a number of clients within this sector, we have often found that one of the most significant challenges facing financial services is the ability to take advantage of sales opportunities from current customers; it is estimated that between 40-70% of an organisation’s growth is attributed to be being able to upsell to their existing customers. However, we find that many are missing out on these given that their sales and marketing capabilities are not great in their current systems. Microsoft Dynamics makes it simpler to understand your current customers which enables you to market to your customers in a much more effective way.
Security & Compliance
As we’ve mentioned above, being able to abide by compliance rules and guidelines within the financial services sector is tedious if you have too many manual processes and multiple systems to deal with. Microsoft Dynamics allows organisations to easily manage compliance by making sure that data is securely stored in a centralised database. Furthermore, Microsoft Dynamics enables employees to take control of their individual processes which in turn helps to reduce human error which leads to ensuring that everyone within the business is data compliant.
Better still, Microsoft Dynamics requires users to sign into the system which is dictated to by system admins who have control over which permissions employees have. Therefore, after an employee leaves all you have to do is simply deactivate their account knowing that your data will remain safe.
If you are an organisation operating in the financial services sector and are fed up of working across multiple systems & using manual processes and are interested in taking advantage of our Microsoft Dynamics for Financial Services solution then please get in touch with one of our Microsoft Dynamics experts today to discuss your specific requirements.
