Why Microsoft Dynamics CRM? Advantages of the Microsoft Platform

Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides growing and mid-market organizations a powerful platform to manage business relationships and data associated to them. It not only equips teams to be more productive and educated, but also gain deeper insights into the entire customer relationship across multiple business units. The sales automation, customer service and marketing modules align and streamline the way we communicate with customers, prospects and team members.

When asking the question of why businesses choose Microsoft Dynamics CRM over the competition? It’s fairly simple:

  • Familiar and intuitive user interface that ranks among the highest in user adoption.
  • Connection with other Microsoft tools, such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office 365, Windows Server, Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business, Microsoft SharePoint, and Yammer is a huge advantage.
  • Flexible architecture allows for easy customization so you can tailor the application to your specific needs.

Microsoft Platform

One of the biggest advantages of Microsoft Dynamics CRM is the integration with the Microsoft stack. Most notably Microsoft Outlook and Office 365.

Microsoft CRM turns Microsoft Outlook into one place where you manage Customer information, Email messaging, and Calendar scheduling. Its familiar interface can be accessed from within Outlook or any internet connection.
