Beringer Associates is always looking for new and innovative ways to make Microsoft Dynamics CRM work for you and your company. One major part of designing a CRM system is to set guidelines on how Users should proceed through a system.

Here at Beringer, we take great pride in developing exceptional software to create impactful solutions for our customers.  One common practice among developers, is the use of Unit Testing.  Testing software allows us to run our application locally and verify it can perform the required tasks before deploying it into an operating environment.  This method allows developers to write tests for each specification of the software to check the features of the software when changes are made.
