Socius Expands CRM Practices with New Hires and Capabilities

DUBLIN, Ohio, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Socius, an award-winning business technology and consulting company, announces the addition of Microsoft Dynamics CRM experts for the company’s presence in the Columbus and Atlanta regions. The company intends to align its growing CRM practice with Microsoft Dynamics’ capabilities in key markets like field service, healthcare, and manufacturing. Socius is one of few certified Microsoft partners in the United States.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a customer relationship management (CRM) solution that enables companies to market smarter and sell effectively and productively. Dynamics CRM is a business solution that helps companies improve marketing, sales, and service engagement with their customers to drive organizational efficiency, while helping to improve the overall customer experience. Socius provides social insights, business intelligence, and productivity with Microsoft solutions, and can deliver Microsoft Dynamics CRM in the cloud, on-premises, or with a hybrid combination.

Rob Urbanowicz, Socius’ CRM Practice Director and CRM expert with more than 20 years of experience, came to Socius in March, 2015, with the goal of doubling the company’s CRM practice in a two-year timeframe. To achieve this goal, Socius has hired key talent in key regions, most recently including Robert Wittig, Principal Consultant Dynamics CRM in Cleveland/Akron, and CRM consultants Meghan Reed and Erica Ellis, both serving clients nationally from the Socius office in Atlanta.

“With this expansion, we now have the ability to help our clients look at the Microsoft stack – Dynamics, Power BI, large-scale deployments – as it relates to CRM specifically,” said Urbanowicz. “Our CRM practice new hires here in Ohio and in our Atlanta office will expand our reach as an award-winning Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner, allowing us to better serve our clients.”

Wittig comes to Socius from his role as CRM practice lead at JibeCRM. Wittig is a 12year veteran as a Microsoft Dynamics CRM architect with mid to large market experience designing, building, and integrating Microsoft Dynamics CRM to achieve corporate goals and objectives. Wittig has a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Accounting Information Systems from the University of Akron.

She has more than 15 years of software industry experience with emphasis in consulting, marketing, sales, implementation, training, and support, and specializes in Business Intelligence and data analysis, and Dynamics CRM. Ellis graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia Terry College of Business.

Reed is a recent graduate from Miami University with a degree in Information Systems. She joined the CRM Consulting team at Socius in Columbus as an associate CRM consultant in 2015, and was promoted to CRM consultant in August 2016.
