Today, Steve Ballmer and Kirill Tatarinov unveiled the new Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service to an audience of customers and partners at a launch event in Redmond, WA. With this release, businesses all over the world can sign-up for this breakthrough CRM solution in 40 markets and 41 languages, at a promotional price of $34 per user per month.
As you have heard the Microsoft Dynamics CRM team say, the focus for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 is to deliver the “Power of Productivity” to customers, through familiar, intelligent and connected experiences. This was a key aspect highlighted today by customers such as Magma Design Automation, Ceridian Corp. and Sandri who are already benefiting from what Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 has to offer.
Some of the things, among others, people are excited about here include:
- The familiar Microsoft Office 2010 user interface experience, which is adaptive by job task and role within one’s organization, helps people complete and take action on work activities with ease.
- Enhanced collaboration across workgroups and teams as Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 provides users with more effective team management and collaboration through shared data access and SharePoint Workspace for collaborating on work activities and documents.
- Real-time business and personal dashboards that allow each user to quickly create visual and immersive business intelligence dashboards to help envision their work activities.
- And especially for developers, deep configuration and customization with full .NET development in Windows Azure that provides rich customization and integration for business applications.
The excitement for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 just continues to grow amongst customers, partners and the overall CRM community. In the upcoming months, expect the Microsoft Dynamics CRM team to host virtual and in-person launch events around the world as they introduce the new product features and functionality.
