Cognate uses the Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step and our previous project experience during the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics.

Our approach

We believe the solution starts with understanding how your organisation communicates with its customers then how your business leaders want to innovate. Harnessing your business leadership experience provides the big picture thinking that facilitates ‘best of breed’ processes. We achieved this in four steps;

  1. First understand your business processes, objective and customer relationship management strategies
  2. Define the GAP between where you are and where you want to be
  3. Translate that knowledge into a system to improve your customer engagement
  4. Train your key users and provide operational support.
