Today, Microsoft announced a fantastic offer for people using Salesforce.com or Oracle to receive up to $200 per user when they switch over to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. That’s right, up to $200 PER USER! What that means is, if you are a qualifying organization and you switch 25 seats to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, you could receive a check from Microsoft for $5,000. Switch 100 seats and receive a check from Microsoft for $20,000! If you are currently an organization that licenses Salesforce.com (Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate Editions) or Oracle (Siebel CRM or CRM on Demand) and subscribe to at least 15 Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online licenses, you could qualify for this promotion.
In kicking off this promotion, Microsoft issued an ‘Open Letter’ to Salesforce.com customers inviting them to switch to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and Michael Park, corporate vice president of sales, marketing, and operations, Microsoft Business Solutions encouraged Salesforce.com customers to ask themselves:
- In this economy, how can I justify paying two to three times more for an enterprise CRM system than I need to?*
- Having access to the most up-to-date information is critical to my business; why doesn’t Salesforce.com provide real-time access to data and dashboards, refreshed whenever I need it like Microsoft does?
- Microsoft works great with Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office; why does Salesforce.com want me to start from scratch when it comes to productivity tools for my people?
Great questions, Michael!
