"We know that change is inevitable, and
we're there to help support [our customers]," he says.
Today, Morpheus' clients are looking to

our customers have implemented a CRM
solution where a lead becomes an opportunity and opportunity becomes a project,"
As an example, MTG Frameworks can
take a lead from the CRM and create a
record in the project management system
for all pre-construction meetings and cost
tracking. "There also is a cost code opened
up in the accounting system for any payroll
tracking," he says.
"Once the contract is awarded, that's
when we open that project full blown in
the accounting and project management
systems," he says, but notes that the use of
the CRM does not end there.
The client's business development staff
will need the project schedule and percentage of project completion. With MTG Frameworks, "We're updating that CRM with
job-to-date information so they don't have
to ask that from accounting or ask that from
the project team," he says. "The information
is carried in that tool of choice."

data for business units."

the company cut down on duplicate entry

"They've been experts who got us to
where we need to be," he says, noting that
Ryan Companies plans to continue using
MTG Frameworks for the foreseeable future.
