This UK Consulting agency standardized on Adxstudio Portals 
This Consulting Agency has focused on building leading Portal Solutions that are integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM to customers in the UK for several years. As their customer base grew, they looked for ways they could streamline their development efforts to better meet the growing needs of their existing and prospective customers.
THE CHALLENGE

They sought to change their overall strategy to one that allowed them to establish a standardized framework that would provide cost effective, customized, online portal solutions for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM UK market. Key to the new strategy was finding a solid portal technology platform that could meet the criteria gap. Optimally, the team was looking for a platform that was already integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, did not require an additional solution database, was developed using Microsoft’s development platform (.Net / C#), had multiple authentication methods, was modular with re-usable components, used HTTP / HTTPS based protocols and supported all of CRM’s deployment options; cloud-based, on-premise or partner-hosted.

THE SOLUTION

With Adxstudio Portals for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, they found a technology platform that had pre-built technology for authentication, Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration, content management, security, all supporting the required deployment options, and more.

“Adxstudio Portals has enabled us to standardize our delivery of Event, HR and IT portal solutions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 on a robust, supported platform,” said the Agency President. “As a result, we’ve been able to replace custom platform code and productize our portal suite. Today we’re exclusively focused on accelerating our development efforts to bring the enhanced features and functionality our customers require to meet their changing needs. When you bet your business on a strategy that includes the adoption of a technology platform you didn’t build, you need to be 100% sure that the investment you make is not only based on meeting the technical requirements but is also supported by a strong, reputable partner.”

A TECHNOLOGY RELATIONSHIP THAT 'FITS THE BILL'

As part of the company's due diligence, factors like support, community, and training were reviewed carefully. Our proven track record, team of technical and support professionals placed us on the top when the review process was complete.

“We interviewed key team members to ensure that they would be able to not only help my development team get up to speed quickly on the platform, but to also ensure that Adoxio had a solid support process in place as we put our plan in place,” states the President. “I believe we definitely made the right decision.”

Providing Focus that Drives Results. The strategic move to standardize on a common portals platform has allowed this UK Agency the ability to streamline their development efforts to areas where they can add the most value for their customers and focus on customer solutions that can be delivered more quickly and are easier to maintain and enhance over time. Theirportfolio of customers has already started to grow using the new standard framework.

Manager Suite Feature has turned out to be a proven solution that scales, with three customers already on the new platform and more than five customer solutions already being built, this Agency continues to optimize their development efforts as well as build out core product functionality in their Manager Suite that sets them apart from their competitors.

“Best of all, ongoing enhancements to our product line has resulted in our customers achieving efficiencies that benefit their customers and other stakeholders,” said The Agency. "With HR and Training Manager, our customers were able to reduce the workload assigned to their Human Resources team by allowing its managers and employees to access information themselves. Enabling them to easily review training needs as well as make training booking requests through the portal."
