"We find that it is easy to integrate with other Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft Office."
"It comes with a lot of ready-made studies that we can connect with other existing Microsoft applications, for example, Office, Outlook, Chatline, and OneDrive. Everything is behind the scenes running with Azure. It's easy to build the connectors."

"They should provide access to data quality tips and tricks to make it better."
"I have found it takes an exceedingly long time to put opportunities or clients in the system. If I have an opportunity that I need to put in the system it could take approximately 10 minutes. This is a lot of time when you have multiple opportunities to put in. There are other tasks to do that are required by supervisors, such as forecasts. What I have done to save time is I did not input as much detail as I could have because I knew it was going to take me an hour to get five leads in."
"The solution offers upgrades at a slower pace. The solution needs to keep up with competitors."
"Their reporting needs to be improved. It should be easier. I don't know how, but it needs to be easier."
