When you realize the need for greater synchronicity within growing, complex data systems, you’re often led to a fork in the road. You can, on the one hand, address the need for integration by tasking an in-house and IT team with developing a bespoke solution. This comes with the need to train, grow expertise, wait through downtime, and constantly work to optimize and update for security and stability-with your own resources. On the other, you can choose Microsoft Dynamics CRM AX integration through a third party like Rapidi.
With this second option, you can integrate quickly such as in a matter of days or weeks-rather than the long months that in-house development often requires. You’ll avoid losses to productivity (or profit) by minimizing downtime, and, by getting the solution installed with speed, you’ll start harnessing the benefits of integration you are after in the first place on a simple , straight path. Either way, the intended outcome is the same, but the direction is vastly different when you consider the detours in-house solutions usually take.
Both aim to secure advantages for the company that overcome inefficiency, cut out manual data entry, reduce redundancies, and improve data accuracy, speed, and more. The intention, of course, is to connect the various arms of your company in management, finance, service, marketing, and beyond by giving your systems a synchronized power more than the sum of its parts. Let’s see how you can get there.
Simplest Path to Dynamics AX Data Integration
Considering that in-house development reduces the positive impact on your company by introducing more work and complexity into integration processes-this guide focuses on how to quickly and simply integrate with third-party solutions. You’ll avoid the need for coding, the possibility of fatal technical failure, the cost of development, and so on.
The result is a speedier journey to greater productivity, improved efficiency, and, ultimately, enhanced scalability as an organization. Dynamics AX already shows, in defining studies, great design for integration as well as usability. Take it further.
For most, deciding to integrate ERPs, CRMs, and other data-warehousing systems stems from the desire to improve all elements of an organization from fulfillment to marketing and finance. Still, each company has its unique vision for the future of its internal environment, and knowing what you intend for integration is a great place to start before you research the appropriate tools for the job.
You might, for instance, value productivity above all else, and seek out tools that automate as many processes as possible to improve the efficiency of the talent currently handling rote tasks like manual data entry across databases. And, you might want to improve the security of your system’s connections to protect your customers (or yourself) with greater care. Or, your primary purpose could be to improve the visibility of data for your leadership to direct and steer the company through improved insight.
Don’t waste time with obscurity. Whatever your mission surrounding integration, get specific with yourself about the attributes in a tool that will help you succeed at connecting your systems with the greatest speed and simplicity.
The next steps are a matter of technical detail rather than overarching intention. In this step, with your third-party tool of choice, you’ll choose the points that you want to duplicate or transfer across platforms. Some of them might be:
- Customer information
- Contact data
- Product details
- Pricing information
- Sales notes
Simply decide the scope of integration, and choose the systems concerned. You can include all (or as little of) the data you desire in this area. Even when you go with a third party, integration is your game, and custom solutions should come standard.
