Microsoft CRM 3.0
Microsoft Dynamics CRM helps your small-to medium-sized business and divisions of larger organizations increase sales success, deliver superior customer service, and make informed business decisions.
Business moves at light speed today, requiring that every company continuously re-examine direction, strategies, suppliers, partners—literally every variable and relationship that might lead to complacency. The intensified search for competitive advantage may mean that some of your best customers pick up and leave without you ever knowing that there was a problem. How well can you react to—and even predict—ever-shifting customer needs and competitor moves?
Infuse your organization with new levels of customer intelligence using Microsoft Dynamics CRM version 3.0, an all-new customer relationship management (CRM) system that gives every customer-facing employee the information they need to truly impress customers. With Microsoft CRM, you can create a centralized repository of customer data that sits neatly alongside Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Outlook—the applications your employees probably use every day. From Outlook, employees access Microsoft CRM sales, marketing, and customer service modules to make sales decisions, market products, solve problems, and get strategic views of the business. It’s CRM that works—and works very well—because it works the way your users already do, works the way your business already does, and works the way technology should.
Works the way you do
Microsoft CRM is quite simply the fastest and easiest way to add CRM capabilities to any organization that uses Microsoft Office or Outlook. Because it was designed to partner with Outlook, Microsoft CRM delivers lower training costs, broader user adoption, less application-switching, higher productivity, and an incredibly rapid return on investment.
Microsoft CRM can give your employees direct access to customer information through Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), enabling access to the information they need when they need it, in the office or on the road. Microsoft CRM lets you work the way you want to work with features such as:
Works the way your business does
Microsoft CRM not only slips right into your employees’ lives without disruption, it also adapts easily to your existing business workflow and processes. You or your information technology (IT) partner can quickly modify application forms, data fields, and relationships and add new activities and objects without writing a single line of code. This makes it easy to tailor Microsoft CRM to suit your needs and fit your business like a glove. You’ll also find a number of elegant workflow innovations that speed use, including next-step suggestions and automatic task assignment. Microsoft CRM also includes capabilities such as:
Works the way technology should
Microsoft CRM works the way your IT staff wants it to because it’s based on proven, industry-standard Microsoft technology that’s easy to learn and work with. You’ll enjoy a rapid, low-cost deployment; low support costs; and easy scalability as your business grows. IT-friendly features include:
Microsoft CRM Editions
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 is available in two editions:
Microsoft CRM 3.0 Small Business Edition is deployed on the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server, and it can accommodate a maximum of 50 simultaneous users. An idea solution for small businesses, this edition is simple to use and features click-through installation.
Microsoft CRM 3.0 Professional is designed for large enterprises using multiple servers in a distributed environment. When operating in this configuration, Microsoft CRM 3.0 Professional is readily scalable—the amount of users can be increased to meet the needs of a large organization.
Apart from server usage and scalability, the two editions offer almost identical features and functionality. Both integrate easily with existing sales processes and workflows and with other Microsoft applications.
