NELCO has consistently earned the highest reputation for quality, effectiveness, functionality and innovation. The entire NELCO team is dedicated to meeting and exceeding their customers' needs, no matter how difficult or complex the challenge.
NELCO was looking to better manage their customer information, sales pipeline and overall visibility into the relationships involved with every project. Without a centralized information management system a good portion of their time was spent searching for information housed in various silos across the organization and within people’s heads. They decided it was time to invest in a system that would help centralize company information with the ultimate goal of eventually streamlining operations across sales, marketing and service departments. NELCO wanted a solution that would work within their existing infrastructure, ensure high user adoption and would be scalable and grow with their business.

NELCO enlisted the help of AbleBridge to assist them with their Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation project. NELCO’s decision to partner with AbleBridge was based on the breadth of experience AbleBridge had successfully implementing CRM solutions over the past decade as well as their expertise with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM product. AbleBridge took NELCO through their implementation methodology which started with defining the business requirements. It was clear the immediate need was to consolidate customer and prospect information and create a consistent operating rhythm where they could accurately measure and manage sales pipeline. Measuring total sales pipeline across each product, territory, sales producer and sales stage was important visibility into the organization that NELCO was looking to implement in Phase 1 of the project.
AbleBridge worked with NELCO to translate their business requirements into functional system requirements. Once the functional requirements were defined AbleBridge executed on a functional Proof of Concept, customizations, data migration, installation and overall project management of the implementation.
Today NELCO utilizes Microsoft Dynamics CRM across many facets of the organization. It is a very important tool utilized by sales management to measure sales production against sales goals, forecasting sales opportunities across product lines and accurately rate the stage of each opportunity according to NELCO’s sales process.
“NELCO has come a long way since we implemented Microsoft Dynamics CRM. AbleBridge helped us streamline our sales operations and project implementation services; and through their structured implementation methodology we were able to quickly realize the benefit of our CRM investment.”

About Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Microsoft Dynamics CRM gives every customer-facing employee the information they need to truly impress customers. With Microsoft CRM, you can create a centralized repository of customer data that sits neatly alongside Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Outlook—the applications your employees probably use every day. From Outlook, employees access Microsoft CRM sales, marketing, and customer service modules to make sales decisions, market products, solve problems, and get strategic views of the business. It’s CRM that works - because it works the way your users already do, works the way your business already does, and works the way technology should.
