Microsoft CRM Solutions Is Getting An Upgrade

Posted by IES on Apr 1, 2015 3:19:00 PM

upgradeDynamics CRM already helps organizations deliver the kind of customer experience their clients want with its intelligent customer engagement solutions. But Microsoft's CRM Solutions are only going to get better with a major update of the Dynamics CRM program set to arrive this Spring. And that's coming straight from Kirill Tatarinov, the executive vice president of the Microsoft Business Solutions Group.

Tatarinov promised audiences at the kickoff of the 2015 Microsoft Convergence conference in Atlanta, Ga. that the new release "delivers amazing business-process innovation, performance, productivity [and] deep integration with Office."

So what's different about the new Dynamics CRM?

According to a blog piece about the new program by Bob Stoltz, the new upgrade focuses on taking the program to the next level in five areas: Productivity, Social, Mobility, Analytics, and Knowledge.

Here are a few key changes you'll be seeing if your business makes the upgrade:

  • The program will be more integrated with Office 365: For example, you'll be able to try out "what if" scenarios in Excel and update your forecasts right within CRM.
  • You'll be more connected to social media: The program will feature a social center where you can monitor social topics and engage directly with social communities.
  • You'll be able to work on-the-go: The new CRM will be accessible and easy-to-use across all devices.
  • You'll have expanded analytics capabilities: PowerBI Connectors for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics Marketing will make analyzing data and making decisions easier than ever for sales professionals.
