Pre-Implementation Considerations 

Before your D365 Sales license acquisition and implementation, a strategic plan must be in place to ensure a smooth transition. Key factors to consider include: 

  • Business Requirements: Identify your business goals and how Dynamics 365 Sales can aid in achieving them. 
  • Resource Allocation: Plan your human, financial, and technical resources needed for the implementation. 
  • Data Migration: Establish a detailed plan for transferring data from your existing system to Dynamics 365 Sales. 

Dynamics 365 for Sales Implementation Steps 

Step 1: System Setup and Customisation 

The first step is setting up and customising your system to operate seamlessly across your business. Dynamics 365 Sales can be tailored to align with various business processes, fields, and entities. This ensures that the system will complement your unique sales strategies. 

Step 2: Data Migration 

Your previous system’s data must be accurately and securely transferred to the new system. This process should be carried out systematically and carefully to avoid data loss or corruption. 

Step 3: User Training 

For Dynamics 365 for Sales to be effective, user training is essential. Training ensures your team understands how to utilise the system’s features to improve sales processes and make data-driven decisions. Ideally, this should be formalised and can be a mixture of online and face-to-face training to ensure that all your staff who need to use the system are up to speed.  

Step 4: Testing and Debugging 

Not everything goes smoothly at the flick of a switch, and it’s crucial to test the system to ensure it covers everything you need. This process involves identifying and rectifying any system errors or functionality issues. There are always a few; the quicker they are identified and solved, the better.  

Step 5: Go Live 

Once testing is complete, you can officially “Go Live”. It’s advisable to have a contingency plan to tackle any unforeseen challenges that might arise after going live. That’s why working with a team like Mercurius can be so invaluable.
