These documents represent immense value for the company and there was an urgent need to protect them.
Phil Cole manages the CRM project at ICS Cool Energy. The CB Replicator was recommended to him by their CRM partner. He was surprised how well it replicated the full range of permissions within CRM into SharePoint.
ICS Cool Energy got in touch with their partner eBECS, a DXC Technology Company. eBECS is a leading Microsoft partner in the UK with vast experience in CRM and ERP systems. They recommend the CB Dynamics CRM – SharePoint Permissions Replicator from Connecting Software to help to solve the challenge.
Already during the trial period, they found that the software was stable and running smoothly. CB Replicator successfully fixed all the permissions so they decided to give it a go. Going forward, all records and new documents in the database of ICS Cool Energy are secured, protected, and safe.
Communication with Connecting Software was smooth, easy, and problem-free for ICS Cool Energy. All questions were easily and quickly solved by the Connecting Software support team, though this was rarely needed because of the high quality of the documentation. ICS Cool Energy also had a few Lync/Skype sessions with the support team, which were very helpful.
