Nortel Networks Corp., which was previously known as Northern Telecom Limited or Northern Electric, was a telecommunications and data networking manufacturer founded in Montreal, Quebec in 1895. Nortel, at its most successful, accounted for over a third of the total value of all companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). The company employed more than 94,500 people around the world at that time and was headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario. Nortel filed bankruptcy in 2009, in the largest bankruptcy case in Canadian history, announcing it would sell of off assets and end its operations. This left shareholders, pensioners, and former employees with huge losses. During the period since the bankruptcy, the company’s executives continued to draw bonuses, angering creditors in Canada, the UK, and the US and leading to a protracted legal battle over the remnants of the business assets. In October, 2016, a settlement was reached to distribute $7.3 billion in assets to claimants, who expected to receive about 57 cents on the dollar for their claims.
Nortel was a leader in the telecommunications world, from the early years when it built a portable communicator for military field service during World War I, and creating a dial-up PBX system, to developing communications/satellite systems during the 1960’s, which was used by Hughes Aircraft Company, and launching the “Princess” phone with the handset dial that was the state-of-the-art in most 1970’s homes. The company was at the forefront of the fiber-optic technology switch that is currently under way due to its cost-effectiveness and reliability. The company also was the one that developed a billing system that allowed speech recognition technology to automate collect calls, and those billed to a third party or calling card. Nortel played a large role in moving the communications world forward into the networked world we have today.
About Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 CRM is a brand new app, currently being rolled out to Business Premium subscribers at no additional charge. Generally available in early 2017, Microsoft is currently working on full mobile access to the new platform. Already the company has released an app for iOS that includes note taking, mobile scanning for business cards, and meeting information.
Even though this app is new, it is connected with Microsoft Office, and its email client, Outlook. Like other CRM programs, it automates and organizes customer and sales data to streamline marketing and increase revenues. This is a welcome new tool for businesses, and in a format that most are already familiar with, having used the other components of Office. In fact, it is accessed through the “Customer Manager” tab in the Outlook toolbar so that team members can effortlessly add contacts, documents, tasks, events, and conversations to the CRM.
Apart from storing information, the platform also allows users to set up reminders to respond to customer interactions and link tasks with a particular company, contact, or project. Deals can be organized in several different ways, and sharing customer information with a team is made easier with the “Focused List” that hones details for particular emphasis.
Information is automatically gathered from email, the Outlook Calendar, and call logs, and helps with tracking commitments and opportunities by offering up timely details and reminders, and it helps prioritize time with the focused lists that keep everyone aware of the most pressing projects, deals, and customers.
Microsoft already has a full-blown enterprise system in Microsoft Dynamics 365, but it’s geared more toward large businesses, and Office 365 aims to be a lighter and more user-friendly app that small to midsized businesses can use to conduct lead acquisition and tracking, as well as customer outreach without the need to do a lot of duplicative data entry. It is easy to get started using it and companies can move up to Dynamics for deep dive information and customer insights when their business scales to a size where those are needed.
CRM platforms are getting smarter. By automating workflows and using machine learning, organizing and searching for customer data is easier for everyone to use. Advances in machine learning, in addition to business intelligence (BI), will continue to be a focus of this CRM platform and others that need data automation but don’t have an entire sales force to manage customer relationships. No doubt this will grow as businesses look for more efficient and smarter ways to engage their leads, manage communications, and convert them into customers.
COST: Free for users with Office 365 Enterprise or Business Premium plan.
