Dell is ramping up cloud apps and solutions portfolio for its business customers, especially those who use popular financial and CRM platforms.
Dubbed as "Integration Packs," these services are designed to securely sync critical and sensitive data among financial, accounting and CRM systems. Like most cloud services, one of the touted benefits here is a more budget-friendly medium for data transfer.
Beyond that, Dell also boasts the ease of transfer (meaning less manual entry of customer data, ensuring higher accuracy and more security), as well as improved data visibility between sales and accounting teams.
The Integration Packs are designed and pre-configured with a "user-friendly wizard," which should enable users to set up the system by just answering a few questions.Thus, IT costs can be reduced even further as this method should eliminate the need for additional professional set-up services.
Specifically, Dell is initially targeting top-tier financial applications such as Intuit QuickBooks and Microsoft Dynamics GP with Salesforce CRM.
Dell Integration Packs for both Intuit QuickBooks and Microsoft Dynamics GP are $65 per month for unlimited users with an annual subscription.
Integration packs for Intuit QuickBooks as well as QuickBooks Online editions are available immediately, while integration packs for Salesforce CRM and Microsoft Dynamics GP will follow in June.
