Admiral Dynamics in front of the class at Thomas More

On Wednesday November 21, Admiral Dynamics was invited at a CVO TSM college on the Thomas More De Nayer campus to present our company and to help this group of IT graduate students by giving them some hands-on tips and tricks for LinkedIn. We were warmly welcomed by student coach Heidi Wulff and her class of 15 motivated IT students.

First, Carole Vincke kicked off the afternoon by presenting ourselves and giving some detailed information about our company, its activity, and our tooling such as Dynamics CRM. As this group is approaching the final stage of their curriculum, it might be an opportunity to do an internship at Admiral Dynamics. The young students were passionately listening to our presentation as they had little knowledge of our day-to-day operations.

Afterwards we were asked to give some guidelines in order to attain a professional LinkedIn profile. We helped each student individually by giving advise on how they should complete their personal profile page.

At the end of our visit, we did a short role play which allowed our experienced HR manager to interview an IT student pretending to be a real candidate. Given the fact the students have little experience in this field, we are sure they made a step forward.

As expected, this turned out to be an educational, interactive and fun afternoon for both the company as the students.

Admiral Dynamics @ Resco.next 2018 Prague

Resco.next 2018 Prague: our experiences

Admiral Dynamics was present at resco.next 2018 in Prague on November 15-16. Resco.next is an educational conference organised by Resco and designed for all IT and business professionals interested in the Resco Mobile CRM solutions. Both Marga Van Laere and Koen Van de Vyver participated at the business mobility event of the year to get in-depth product knowledge about Resco Mobile CRM for Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM.

Curious how they experienced the 2-day conference? Read Koen’s report of the resco.next 2018:

“Let’s kick off with some interesting stats. This background information will give you a better understanding of Resco Mobile CRM.

Currently, Resco has 2.200 company customers (51% Europe, 39% North-America, 8% New-Zealand, 2% other countries), 150.000 licensed mobile users, with an average daily usage of 11 sessions a day, 9 minutes and 42 seconds per session, which totals in a staggering 1 hour 42 minutes a day.

No wonder that Resco.next 2018 attracts more than 200 attendees from over 24 countries, representing 92 companies and enjoying 28 sessions in 2 days. These sessions are divided in 2 tracks: a sales-oriented business track and a more technical track. Of course, there’s plenty of time to network in order to get to know the team behind Resco, have one-on-one conversations with the Resco engineers and learn from partners and even competitors.

So what are my key take-aways from Resco.next 2018?

  • First of all, Resco is going to invest heavily in partnerships. The partner enablement program, allowing business partners to step up their game, is an example of their partner’s focus. However, from a partner perspective, the most interesting news came from Resco’s announcement that they will deliver a robust mobile solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Field Service. Read the full press release at PRNewswire.
  • Secondly, Resco’s road map is looking both interesting and promising as Resco will be further developing their Route Planner and Inspections modules. Their functionalities are a great addition to the Dynamics 365/CRM stack, what makes me extremely happy as a Dynamics consultant. Moreover, Resco is pushing out the HTML version of the Woodford configuration tool. This truly brings them back to the present, as the old Silverlight version is being depreciated in 2020.
  • Last but not least, Resco confirmed its status as the leading mobile solution for Dynamics CRM and Salesforce. This was made clear with the numerous inspirational sessions hosted by several partners and with the Mobility Success Panel. Participants of the panel were Gustaf Westerlund, Jeremy Higgins, Ilya Naroditskiy, Daniel Buzatu, Nils Oltenau and myself (Koen Van de Vyver). These panelists did share some of their insights and gave sound advice on things you should (re)think of before implementing Resco as a mobile solution.”

As always, the resco.next conference was truly educational and inspirational. Definitely worth participating! The next European edition will be in Rome: Admiral Dynamics will be there for sure.
