SBS Group to Launch SalesConnect 365, a New Solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales, at Dynamics User Group Summit

Cloud-based technology provides intelligent connections between CRM, email, and calendar systems to provide robust insight into customer relationships and value.

SBS Group, a leading information technology services and solutions firm, is pleased to announce the availability of SalesConnect 365, a revolutionary solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales (formerly Microsoft Dynamics CRM) leveraging cutting-edge machine learning and analytics. SBS will be highlighting the solution in Booth 311 at the Microsoft Dynamics User Group Summit 2017 being held October 10th–13th at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, TN.

SBS SalesConnect 365 crawls an organization’s email and calendar systems, intelligently searches and retrieves all useful data about customers and prospects, organizes the information in Dynamics 365 for Sales (or Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online), and presents it as actionable knowledge that companies can use to improve close ratios, create more opportunities, and drive more revenue. Sales and customer service team members no longer need to manually enter or associate activities with Dynamics 365 records. SalesConnect 365 provides automatic association giving them more time in front of customers. SalesConnect analytics help improve forecast accuracy, identify customer buying behaviors, and create more sales opportunities.

“SalesConnect 365 captures all customer-facing activities directly from email and calendar systems like Microsoft Office 365 and applies natural language processing, data science, and machine learning techniques to analyze and characterize the level of engagement with leads, accounts, and opportunities in Dynamics 365,” said SBS Chief Solution Strategist, Robbie Morrison. “SalesConnect 365 provides a new level of insight into the nature and value of customer relationships, allowing companies to be vastly more effective at sales and customer service.”

SalesConnect 365 is a cloud-based solution that will works with all major email platforms, including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, and Gmail from Google. Summit attendees will have the opportunity to sign-up for a free trial of the service.

SBS Group and Redmond Channel Partner to Co-host Webcast: “Why the Channel Needs to Embrace Dynamics 365 to Stay Relevant”

Redmond Channel Partner Editor-in-chief Scott Bekker to moderate a presentation on why partners should add Microsoft Dynamics 365 to their solution portfolios.

SBS Group, a leading information technology services and consulting firm, has announced they will be presenting a webcast with Scott Bekker of Redmond Channel Partner to help Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Managed Service Providers (MSP’s) understand how changes in the business environment for Microsoft partners has made the addition of a Microsoft Dynamics 365 practice a crucial element for continued success. The webcast will take place Tuesday, August 15th at 12 p.m. ET.

Entitled “Why the Channel Needs to Embrace Dynamics 365 to Stay Relevant,” the webcast will also highlight SBS Group’s Stratos Cloud Alliance, a new program for partners looking to expand their breadth of solutions while minimizing investment. Attendees will be introduced to Stratos Cloud Alliance’s turnkey initiative, Stratos Dynamics Digital Transformation (S2DT), a program to help partners build a Microsoft Dynamics 365 practice in 30 days.

“Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Microsoft’s recent partner management changes, has shattered the historic divide between Dynamics partners and the rest of the channel. As cloud services continue to dominate the market, the need for channel partners to sell and deliver on business value versus technical expertise will accelerate,” says Bekker. “Microsoft is working with a new indirect provider, the Stratos Cloud Alliance, to assist partners interested in adding Dynamics 365 to differentiate, increase customer stickiness, and open new revenue streams.”

Bekker will be joined by SBS presenters Jim Bowman and Scott May. Bowman is the Chief Executive Officer at SBS Group and May is the Director of Channel Programs, Stratos Cloud Alliance at SBS Group.

New Video Release: AP Invoice Automation with Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (4 min 16 secs)

Research and common sense clearly demonstrate that more automation means better productivity. Analysts at Aberdeen have reported that highly automated organizations actively manage more than 90 percent of their spending. Contrast this with manual operations which have less than 25 percent of their spending under management. Beyond the impact on the productivity of the accounting function, invoice automation enables executives to make smarter decisions about their company’s costs and forecasts and gives the organization confidence that invoices are paid on time, recorded accurately, and never misplaced or duplicated. Bottom line, invoice automation can positively impact the organization from the front line to the C-suite.

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, Business Edition, there is no need to invest in complex or expensive integration to implement an invoice automation solution. You can have your paper documents converted to electronic invoices using an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) service, thereby avoiding tedious, error-prone and costly manual typing and leverage built-in process automation capabilities of Dynamics 365. Best of all, the OCR service (provided by Lexmark) is available as a subscription cloud service through the Microsoft AppSource and requires no installation or integration. Dynamics 365, of course, is also an on-demand subscription service available through Microsoft Cloud Solution providers like SBS Group.

Watch as a Dynamics 365 expert demonstrates the invoice automation capabilities of Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, Business Edition.
