Lindi du Toit
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Consultant
I am a certified Microsoft Dynamics CRM Specialist in Applications, Customization and Configuration. I am a full time freelancer active on Odesk and have some local clients in South Africa that I work with and support on an ongoing basis. Microsoft Dynamics CRM is what I am passionate about and am fortunate enough to be doing what I love.
I am a professional Microsoft Dynamics CRM Consultant with over 20 years experience in Customer Service and Sales, Administration, Project Coordination and -Management and direct marketing. More specifically I offer the last 8 years hands on experience in the planning, installation, implementation, customization and configuration of MS Dynamics CRM 2011, 2013 and more recently 2015, to various customers in various industries.
My core competencies are business needs analysis and requirements gathering, translating requirements into functional specifications, deployment, configuration, customization and administration of MS Dynamics CRM. I continuously improve my own knowledge on best practice processes for MS CRM and am often approached for advise on best practice.
Having previously been a client who implemented Microsoft Dynamics CRM, I have a strong focus on end-user simplicity and have compiled various user training manuals with a focus on end user learning and buy-in.
My passion is ultimately Microsoft Dynamics CRM, although I am also a Microsoft® Certified Technology Specialist in SQL Server® 2008, Business Intelligence Development and Maintenance and SQL Server® 2008, Database Development. I specifically chose these areas of certification to compliment my Microsoft Dynamics CRM work.
My second career passion is marketing automation and integration of bulk e-mail platforms in Microsoft Dynamics CRM (i.e. mailchimp using PowerMailchimp and ClickDimensions), that empowers my customers to communicate more effectively with their target base, mine their data better and gather so much more business intelligence from their contacts.
