John has to meet clients daily in order to achieve his sales targets and convert new clients. For which he uses dynamics CRM map integration plugin as their CRM system works on dynamics.

While planning his day, he opens up the Dynamics CRM map plugin and plots his assigned accounts on the map. And then he selects a region and creates a route for himself for the day and sends his plan to the sales manager, Eric. He is the States Sales Manager, Florida.

Now, Eric has a clear idea of the whereabouts of his team members. He further wants to understand their sales numbers and see which state is performing the best.

Eric activates heatmap on the CRM after navigating through Dynamics CRM to understand the regional sales data. He was surprised to see Orlando city performing the highest as all this time he believed that the top-performing city was Miami, Florida. But according to plotted data & heatmap, he saw that there are more potential customers coming from Orlando than Miami. Therefore, he changed the priorities to that city.
