Services for the Digital Citizen


Customer relationship management (CRM) can be a complex challenge for many businesses. As you evaluate the right customer relationship management solution for your business, it’s important to evaluate the total solution — including the user experience, product functionality, support costs and to select a product that will grow with your business as it expands over time.

Those who say “A CRM is a CRM” haven’t done their homework.  Every business is different and it is essential that your CRM can be tailored to fit your particular needs.  These needs often extend beyond traditional CRM parameters and stretch into areas of automated data collection or business process workflows. 

Microsoft Certified partner, OpenSky Data Systems, can provide businesses with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Platform.  We like to refer to it as Dynamics xRM to distinguish it from the others, x referring to areas traditionally outside of CRM. Microsoft Dynamics xRM platform can be hosted on premise or online. 

Competing products can certainly be configured to some extent, but there is a big difference between configuring and true customisation.  Projects that we have been involved in required 50 to 70% configuration and the remainder customisation, competing products were unable to go the extra distance.

Case Studies

In 2013, opensky delivered the “Project Evaluation Platform” (PEP) to Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland (SEAI) to enable them to manage all phases of grant applications and payments for a number of their Better Energy schemes.

As part of this project, opensky has developed a Business Intelligence/Data Analytics solution to sit alongside PEP. The solution is based on the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack, including SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), Integration Services (SSAS) and SharePoint. The solution extracts information from the Dynamics PEP solution on a scheduled basis and moves this to a customised datamart. The datamart is then used to feed a number of analytics cubes (based on SSAS).
