Dynamics 365 GCC High Customer Service Enterprise Helps an Aerospace Company Streamline Customer Operations

A leading aerospace technology company experienced rapid growth, leading to siloed data and disconnected processes across its departments. The increasing supply chain didn’t make matters easier, especially on matters compliance. Additionally, its on-premises ERP system struggled to keep pace with evolving project demands, and its CRM lacked visibility into customer interaction and project progress. This fragmentation resulted in inefficiencies, hindered collaboration, and limited communications with valuable clients. The company needed a solution that would deeply understand business operations. They also wanted a solution to streamline their operations by providing clients with a customizable and personalized experience while adhering to strict regulations. To solve its problem, the company contracted Cleared Systems, a leading Managed Services Provider. This collaboration settled on deploying Dynamics 365 GCC High Customer Service Enterprise.

Which Challenges were Faced Deploying Dynamics 365 GCC High?

While it was clear that changes were necessary to improve customer relations and streamline operations while maintaining compliance, they faced challenges. Key among the issues we faced include:  

Change Management  

Transitioning to Dynamics 365 GCC High presented a significant change management hurdle. Employees deeply ingrained in their siloed, on-premises systems and established workflows felt apprehensive about the shift to a new, cloud-based platform. This apprehension manifested in several ways:  

  • Fear of the unknown: Many employees weren’t familiar with Dynamics 365 GCC High Customer Service Enterprise and were worried about adapting to a new interface and learning curve. This unfamiliarity resulted in suspicion and resistance to the change.  
  • Disruption of routines: Established workflows ingrained in the on-premises systems were suddenly under threat, causing anxiety and disrupting daily tasks. Employees accustomed to specific processes felt the new system would hinder their efficiency.  
  • Loss of control: Shifting to Dynamics 365 GCC High meant some employees would relinquish some control over data and processes. This further fueled anxieties for employees used to operating within the confines of their familiar systems. Additionally, rumors started circulating that some employees would be reassigned and some retrenched.   

Data Migration and Integration  

The deployment of Dynamics 365 GCC High Customer Service Enterprise into the aerospace technology company’s information systems presented a significant data migration and integration challenge. Transitioning from siloed, on-premises systems to a unified platform required merging data from diverse sources, a complex process fraught with various issues such as:  

  • Data Disparity: Information resided in various disconnected systems, each using different formats, structures, and quality standards. Merging these disparate elements demanded meticulous planning and data mapping to ensure compatibility and avoid inconsistencies.  
  • Data Cleansing: Hidden within the disparate sources were inaccuracies, duplicates, and missing values. This data had to be cleansed to ensure its accuracy and completeness before migrating it into Dynamics 365 GCC High, which was crucial in ensuring consistency. 
  • Compatibility Issues: The Aerospace company used different systems built on different technologies. Integrating these systems required additional development efforts or specialized tools to bridge the gaps in data formats, structures, or communication protocols.   

Customizing Client Experience  

Personalizing Dynamics 365 GCC High for individual clients presented multifaceted challenges. Achieving this required modifying various offerings’ elements, from user interfaces to entire modules, to align with the company’s specific use cases. This challenge was evident during the configuration phases, where technical proficiency in Dynamics 365 GCC High and a deep understanding of client requirements was necessary. Striking a delicate balance between fulfilling client needs and navigating platform limitations posed a central challenge.
