If your business is running Dynamics CRM it might be time for an upgrade. Dynamics CRM 2011 is now out of mainstream support and this will be shortly followed by Dynamics CRM 2013. There has never been a better time to consider upgrading.

The first steps to understanding the risks to your business is accepting how easily you can react to change and what does out of support really mean for you. We have created a whitepaper, Dynamics CRM end of support, that explains everything you need to know.

You have two options available, you can continue to run an unsupported system or you can look at upgrading. When considering upgrading it is important to look at your upgrade path to understand what solution best suits your business.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement

Microsoft’s flagship offering is Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement. This is a package that includes access to many different solutions that all share the same technology and platform. This is effectively 3 modules of the same CRM tool designed for different roles and a number of supporting solutions. All of the solutions sit on the customer engagement platform, using the same database and they share much of the same functionality.

On the other hand, you can choose to simply purchase the solution you need, instead of the full package. However, for larger organisations, with more complex needs, the package is the stronger choice as it’s not much more expensive.

They preconfigured a lot of the functionality during pre-sales which gave us a head start, and also had a unique approach to training that enabled it to be carried out in multiple time zones in a very short period of time.”
