Greenwood Village, CO, United States, 2010/09/21 - CIBER, Inc. (NYSE: CBR), today announced “Ready for 2011”, its offering to assess customers’ readiness for implementing or upgrading to Microsoft’s Dynamics CRM 2011. NYSE: CBR
The two-week assessment provides new and existing customers with a GAP Analysis, As-Is Inventory, Migration Strategy and Findings & Recommendations, and evaluates a number of areas that are critical to determining the customer’s Dynamics CRM functional and deployment needs.
CIBER makes this announcement on the heels of Microsoft’s recent beta release of its next-generation product for cloud-based and on-premises deployments. The beta release marks the world-wide rollout of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service from Microsoft’s global datacenters, and it will be released to customers and hosting partners for on-premises deployment as Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.
Earlier this year, CIBER formally expanded its Microsoft Dynamics CRM practice in the U.S. market. According to CIBER’s Vice President of Global Practices Khalid Mansour, “Due to the growing demand for CRM solutions in the mid and enterprise marketplace, we saw a clear opportunity to expand our U.S. practice to better support new and existing clients who are looking to take advantage of Microsoft’s newest release of its on premise and online (SaaS) versions of Dynamics CRM. Globally, CIBER is leveraging almost a decade’s worth of domain experience implementing Dynamics CRM in Europe for mid-market and enterprise level clients, in addition to successfully implementing the solution for clients in the U.S.”
According to David Smith, General Manager, US Dynamics Partners at Microsoft, “We are very pleased to partner with CIBER for implementing Microsoft Dynamics CRM. With CIBER’s success abroad and in the U.S., paired with their technical expertise and success with our integrated stack, there was no question we needed to partner with CIBER.” Additionally, in July of 2010, Microsoft awarded CIBER the honors of 2010 Public Sector Partner of the Year, 2010 President’s Club for Dynamics CRM, and 2010 CRM Partner of the Year (UK).
Recently, CIBER was selected to help one of the world's largest media conglomerates to implement their initial Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation. The project will enable the company’s outside sales force to have visibility into their territory accounts and past performance, integrate with Bing maps to plan sales representative calls (or meetings) for a day/week, and provide mobile access to account information and the direct input of meeting notes into CRM.
CIBER is both a Microsoft Gold Partner for Dynamics CRM and a full-stack partner delivering solutions to customers through the integration of Microsoft technologies with each other and with third party systems. Solutions provided include CRM Business Strategy and Planning, Upgrades, Implementation, Training and Customer Support, System Integration, Custom Application Development (CRM + .NET), ITO and Managed Services.
