Endeavour adopts a step-by-step methodology to ensure that Dynamics 365 is configured to meet each clients’ unique requirements and business needs in a cost-effective manner.
According to Terry Sunderland, President and CEO at Endeavour, the recent updates to the Microsoft Power Platform, which is a combination of PowerApps, PowerBI, and Microsoft Flow, building custom apps, creating reports, and automating workflows have never been easier. Endeavour is excited about the tight integration and embedded nature of PowerApps, the preferred development tool for CRM UI changes now, within the Dynamics 365 platform. With this, the company is unlocking innovative ways for its team to take CRM configurations to the next level. “From a CRM perspective, an improved version of PowerApps has now replaced the configuration tools that our team previously used, allowing for enhanced customizations and development of new CRM applications. We look forward to leveraging our proficiency in application design and UX to assist clients with Power Platform,” says Troy Bezanson, CRM Practice Lead at Endeavour.
With PowerApps, Endeavour’s consultants help clients create line of business workflow applications that provide quick returns, in a streamlined way. Going a step further, Endeavour is primed to utilize PowerApps to build customized applications outside of the traditional core teams of finance, sales, or marketing. Be it compliance, operations, or even vendor management teams, Endeavour can build new cloud-applications that perform unique data capture and calculations—while securely sharing all the data across the organization.
We have been constantly honing our unique skill sets to map out new processes and use Microsoft’s updated cloud-based tools to rapidly build novel functions and expand the use of core ERP/CRM systems
Sunderland mentions, “At Endeavour, we see this as an ability to add more value to our clients, especially in building relations and applications outside of finance and sales support systems while providing non-ERP/CRM users with the opportunity to purchase a PowerApps subscription.”
In a nutshell, Endeavour continues to strengthen the custom development and integration capabilities of its in-house team, helping clients reap the benefits of new developments in the realm of Microsoft Dynamics. “We have been constantly honing our unique skill sets to map out new processes and use Microsoft’s updated cloud-based tools to rapidly build novel functions and expand the use of core ERP/CRM systems. Our team is thrilled to combine our capabilities with PowerApps, which is ripe for adoption across much of the mid-market,” Sunderland adds.
To highlight the prowess of Endeavour, Bezanson shares a story wherein they helped a client develop a mobile app using PowerApps for their field service team, to extend the use of Microsoft Dynamics 365 in a cost-effective manner. With the simple mobile app, Endeavour empowered the client’s remote workers to log their expenses and parts used into a form. Along with that, the Endeavour team also developed a second form with a simplified UI to help the same to see jobs received (work orders) and view those through a calendar view. The client was impressed with both the intuitive user interface and the low cost of PowerApps, which did not require additional licensing beyond their current Dynamics 365 subscription. “We’re pleased with the creativity that Endeavour was able to bring to the table with these simple, time-saving apps for our team,” reads the client’s testimonial.
Recently awarded with Gold Cloud Certification for Microsoft Azure, Endeavour’s ascension to success and rapid growth can be credited to its unparalleled customer support. The team does not just handhold clients through the implementation of a new ERP or CRM system; they provide prompt and ongoing support to clients to help them reap maximum benefits from their investment in Microsoft Cloud Business Applications.

The company is also aggressively investing in additional training and certifications around new cloud-based Business Intelligence apps for better analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
