We have recently released two industry vertical templates (Manufacturing & Municipal Government ) for Microsoft Dynamics CRM as a part of Microsoft’s shared source initiative. These templates include reference data models, pre-defined workflows, Demo Data, Demo Script and role-based user experiences that showcase how Microsoft Dynamics CRM is relevant to customers in these industries. The templates are designed to work with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 today and will be updated for Microsoft Dynamics CRM “Titan”. See here for more details.
These templates are NOT replacements for the outstanding work of “verticalized” partners in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Community; these templates are designed to demonstrate the exciting potential of CRM Platform in various industry verticals as well as help to reduce demonstration development time for partners selling into these verticals.
