What is iGlobe CRM for Office 365?

The award-winning iGlobe CRM is a SharePoint application that integrates with Microsoft’s Office 365 (O365) suite. The iGlobe CRM application can be downloaded and installed directly from the Microsoft AppSource. It leverages all the power of SharePoint’s many features, with an out-the-box dashboard interface that is easy to use. The app comes with an O365 add-in for Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel that makes adding content to the CRM a seamless and easy process.

iGlobe is a preferred SharePoint Business Application Charter Partner, one of only a few dozen worldwide

The CRM does not require additional software to be installed on desktops and can be managed entirely by the business users. Because the installation is done on your O365, the features are available in Outlook on your desktop, the mobile Outlook app, and Outlook online. Adding additional customizations, such as creating new lists and items, is as simple as extending SharePoint functionality. No code needs to be updated.

The iGlobe CRM functionality integrates with other Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft Planner and Microsoft Teams.  Additionally, the CRM uses standard SharePoint document libraries that allow users to work offline via Microsoft OneDrive.

Why bother writing about another CRM?

Yes, I was wondering about that too! There are hundreds of CRMs already, why this one? Well, if you are happy with your CRM or you are not using Office 365, you may just stop reading this blog. This CRM is only for companies on Office 365 for Business or Enterprise. When we were looking for a CRM for our company, we wanted something EASY to use and bolted right onto our Outlook client so adding contacts and updating tasks was a one-step process. We tried Microsoft Dynamics 365, but for a small team it did not make much sense. The time required to install, configure and learn how to use it was more than we could afford.

After a careful search we found iGlobe CRM for Office 365. It was the only one on the market that took the pain out of getting a CRM. We trusted it so much so that our company became the partner of iGlobe family of products in Canada. We think this CRM has something unique to offer for small teams that want to better coordinate their sales efforts. Because it also leverages Microsoft Planner and OneDrive, it allows us to keep our data protected safely by Microsoft’s world class security. On top of that, iGlobe Add-ins have been built so well that they have won two awards at Microsoft Ignite 2019.

The following are known limitations.

  1. Contacts added in a CRM may only be linked via a primary email address. It is not possible to have two or more email addresses associated with the same contact.
  2. The CRM Outlook add-in cannot be customized. Users may add new fields to contacts, companies, notes, reports, and opportunities.
