Dynamics CRM 2011: Why Magnetism…

Jaime Smith, 01 September 2012

I decided that this week I would take the time to recognise the hard work of my team!

At Magnetism, we are consistently being recognised by the wider Dynamics community as bringing an innovative, fresh and expert approach.  This recognition does not just lie with our CEO Mark Smith gaining the covetable Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) status this year or with the company maintaining Gold Partner Status but is reaching out from within the teams, particularly the Developer team.

If you are reading this blog you will likely already know that we aim to get a blog up on our site every day – blogs are our way of getting the team to cement their learning and to acknowledge that we are part of a wider community and enjoy the privilege of sharing ideas and solutions.  This approach has helped Magnetism touch people from all over the world.

Two outstanding moments from regular blogging:

  • The recognition by another MVP from the other side of the world for the innovative approach Roshan Mehta used to track the “last contacted date” for Contacts and Accounts
  • Paul Nieuwelaar (the youngest member of our team) has received credit in a newly published book for his participation in the review of the transcript on working with an Email Router

However while blogging is one way in which we aim to make our mark in the Dynamics Space there are other areas that we try to push the boundaries such as training.  This coming week the TechEd conference is  being held here in Auckland and if you have not planned to attend then you might like to reconsider as our lead developer Gayan Perera will be presenting a session at the 400 level  - this is an honour and recognition of Gayan’s  talent and expertise within this field. 

These are just some of the reasons why Magnetism is a good choice if you are considering implementing Dynamics CRM.
