Advantages of SMB Intelligence Reporting for MS CRM

Just like SMB Intelligence has an extensive, live integration to every Microsoft Dynamics ERP system, it also has a major, live integration to the MS CRM database. This gives you several benefits:
  • Flexible, user-friendly Excel-based report writer for your CRM data
  • Run reports on demand from Excel, web or auto-distribute reports by e-mail
  • Any entries in MS CRM are immediately available in SMB Intelligence reports with no delaying transfer to OLAP cubes or external systems
  • Install SMB Intelligence, download pre-built CRM report templates and in less than 5 minutes start seeing your CRM data in ways you have never been able to before
  • Integration is out-of-the-box, plus there is an interface to add custom CRM fields should that be needed.
  • Pre-joined tables across CRM (e.g. Owner, Account, etc.)
  • Pre-defined period logic (CRM date fields linked to weeks/months/etc. for easy reporting on e.g. trends, month-to-date, year-to-date, etc.)
  • Get increased visibility and control of your CRM data and at the same time watch the sales team quickly become motivated to capture updated data in CRM due to vastly improved reporting output
  • See the screenshots later in this document to get an idea of reporting capabilities, including charting, traffic lights, narrative reports and more
