Drove the pre-study to gather business requirements from the customer and translated these into a technical solution based on Microsoft Dynamics 365 with a focus on sales pipeline management and a customized quotation solution built as a stand-alone .NET web application integrated with Microsoft Dynamics 365. As the quotation process for the customer is very unique, the standard functionality in Microsoft Dynamics was not a good fit and therefore the decision was made to develop a customized solution with a tight integration with Dynamics. As a user, the switch between the two systems is invisible but from a technical perspective, the solution takes advantage of the best aspects of both a third-party platform as well as a custom-built business application.

Designed and developed a mobile app solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Salesforce which allows the systems to send rich push notifications to the end users on their iOS devices. This enabled the user to get notifications on anything that happened in the CRM system and allows them to interact with the notification in ways that is not supported by the standard mobile apps for the CRM platforms. The app was first developed in Objective-C but was later converted to Swift. Solution is based on an iOS app which interacts with a backend hosted in Microsoft Azure. To send the notifications and get the responses back, the complete solution also included development in Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Salesforce to extend both of the platforms. Stefan was the sole architect and developer of the solution.

Was part of Scania’s CRM journey from 2011 until 2019. At first the IT organization of Scania developed and delivered market-specific solutions based on local requirements. Each market had their own instance with a custom base platform. As the ambition of CRM for Scania grew in 2016, the old way of working was no longer possible to support with the limited resources. Stefan designed a new platform based on Microsoft Dynamics 2016 platform where one instance was to be used on a global scale. To support diverse business requirements for each market, a solution was built on top of Dynamics 365 called market settings. For each market, parameters can be set to control functionality on all levels. With this solution in place, it is possible to gather all users and all data in the same instance for extreme synergy effects as well as simplify the follow-up of the global sales pipeline and interactions with global key accounts.
