It is with great pride that I can announce that we have released the next version of Microsoft Dynamics Mobile on PartnerSource. It is really exciting that we are now making this available for all our Microsoft Dynamics Partners.
With this release we will support:
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0 SP3
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 SP1
- Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 SP1
- Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 SP2
We are releasing in 2 packages, one for the Microsoft Dynamics Mobile - Mobile Development Tools, containing the Server and Framework Components and one for Microsoft Dynamics Mobile - Mobile Sales. You should note that the Server components and Mobile Sales integration objects are already included as part of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 SP1 so a separate installation of these objects is not necessary. Also, the documentation is packaged in one installer covering all products.
I am adding here a comment from Product Management whom has really been looking forward to this release:
Put Microsoft DynamicsTM into the Hands of the People Who Need it Most
Did you know that only 15 percent of a company's employees actually use their business management system? And that they are the people furthest from the action. With Microsoft Dynamics Mobile, you can give your customer's mobile employees direct access to their Microsoft Dynamics solution. Give them what they need, at their fingertips, when they need it. Let them check product availability, update key figures, and process orders - fast and easy. Microsoft Dynamics Mobile software powers advanced, easy-to-use Windows Mobile ®-based devices that help organizations with field sales, mobile professionals, mobile service technicians or support staff to drive increased productivity, open new business opportunities and to reduce costs.
We make it easy for our partners. We provide a scalable, extensible mobile platform that makes use of your customer's existing Microsoft infrastructure. You can either resell mobile applications from Microsoft, starting with Mobile Sales. Or develop new, tailor-made applications for your customers using the Mobile Development Tools. We help you mobilize your Microsoft Dynamics solution so you can expand and grow your business.
With the new release of Microsoft Dynamics Mobile, available from March 2008, Microsoft Dynamics partners will now have the opportunity to use Microsoft Dynamics Mobile - Mobile Development Tools to build end-to-end solutions for Microsoft DynamicsTM NAV and Microsoft DynamicsTM AX as well as other Microsoft Dynamics business management systems, create vertical applications quickly, and reduce the application development time for mobile implementations. Components of Microsoft Dynamics Mobile are also included in the release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 SP1.
The Microsoft Dynamics Mobile release also contains Mobile Sales, which is the first mobile application for Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics AX from Microsoft Dynamics Mobile. Mobile Sales is RoleTailored and task-oriented and an ideal solution for field sales representatives and other mobile employees who need to work in remote locations. The field sales representatives can plan visits, review relevant sales information, and create orders. Microsoft Dynamics Mobile is localized for Microsoft Dynamics NAV in 29 countries and for Microsoft Dynamics AX in 28 countries.
"Mobile Development Tools will accelerate delivery of mobile applications to customers around the world, making it easier for today's mobile workforce to access critical business information from their Microsoft Dynamics applications," said Mogens Elsberg, General Manager, Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions at Microsoft.
