altus-dynamicsAltus Dynamics announces today that Pathways to Education Canada (Pathways) has chosen to implement a Contact Relationship Management application based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The tailored solution is designed to provide the organization with better data analysis and tracking in addition to improving efficiency of Pathways’ operations that are aimed at helping youth from low-income communities graduate high school.

By using Microsoft Dynamics CRM as a solution development framework, an organization like Pathways can invest once, yet benefit from multiple applications. Another benefit is that organizations can drastically reduce the cost of future applications, paying back the cost of initial investment.

“I was aware of the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM but it was a matter of finding a partner company that understood how to tailor and implement the solution in the non-profit space. We had heard great things about Altus so we reached out and made contact”, explained Rolf Gube, Director of Information Technology of Pathways to Education Canada. “From the start of the process we had confidence that they understood our needs and had a realistic plan of approach and implementation. Altus had the experience and expertise we required to bring this important project through to a successful conclusion”, he added.

From the outset the team at Pathways were very clear on what they needed – a solution that combined flexibility and scalability to meet the challenge of their growing organization, combined with a system that could be easily integrated into legacy systems, while being easy to use. Altus Dynamics CRM ticked all those boxes”, commented Colin Dickinson, VP Sales at Altus Dynamics.
