As we complete our roll-out to our datacenters in Asia, EMEA and North America, I am pleased to announce that the global availability of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Fall ’13 will happen over the next few weeks!  Companies looking for a cloud-based CRM solution that is built for modern business needs, is simple to use and easy to adopt, will need look no further. 

I’m excited to share with you today some feedback we’ve received from our Preview participants who have been working with pre-release code since the middle of the summer, many of them set to go live in the very near future.  This has been our most highly subscribed Preview to date with businesses and strategic partners across 48 countries participating.  We asked all of our program participants to rate their top three favorite aspects of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, and here is what they had to say…

New User Experience— “The redesigned user interface is awesome :-)  It will be much easier for sales people!” “The CRM 2013 flat, intuitive UI … equates to easily understandable and quantifiable ROI - making the CRM investment easier to justify than ever before.” “Cleaner, faster, more intuitive interfaces. Reduced number of pop ups.  Reduced toggling between applications.” “The minimization of pop-ups has proven beneficial for more efficient use.”

Mobile functionality including our new touch-optimized tablet and phone apps— “The Windows tablet that I bought last year is now not only usable for everything I do in my unique enterprise job for the first time, but delightful to use for everything I do, for the first time!”  “CRM Mobile access has been realized in a useful, simple, and affordable way meeting customer needs for a mobile force advantage technology backed by Microsoft.” “The usability is awesome and friendly with touch screen devices and accessible from tablets to PC.”

Business process capabilities— “It’s easy to define business processes.  Modifications can be made quickly to support changing business requirements.” “With process driven UI, organizations can now create processes for any entity, as well as processes that go across entities.”  “The new business process flow means less end user confusion on next steps.”

We’re excited that you will soon be able to experience these and many other new features of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 for yourself.  We know it can be a game-changer for your business.  We encourage you to plan for your trial today.  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics/crm-free-trial-overview.aspx
