Observations from Protech Fusion Users Conference

Last week I had the opportunity to speak at the Protech 2010 Fusion Users Conference in Washington, DC. I also got to sit in on some other sessions and part of the opening session.

One of the sessions I attended discussed many of the third-party information and products available for use with Protech’s CRM4M product. Because Protech’s AMS is built on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM product, there is an entire ecosystem of products and resources being developed for MSCRM users. Here are just a few that were highlighted:

  • Stunware CRM Corner – This site is a depository of all kinds of MSCRM-related information, including articles, javascripts, and other tools.
  • CRM Accelerators – Codeplex – These are free add-on solutions that can be “plugged in” to an existing MSCRM deployment.
  • CRMUG – This is an independent CRM users group for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. As I’ve written elsewhere, I’m a huge fan of users groups.
All of this takes place outside of what Protech or Microsoft is doing with its CRM products. I think this adds tremendous value to the product.
Full disclosure: EDM is an independent third-party consulting firm. This means we have no financial relationship with any of the vendors mentioned in this blog. We provide unbiased opinions on what we see.
