We are so excited about these new options! Microsoft has always offered Dynamics CRM Online at a single price point.
After listening to their customers, who are demanding more choice and flexibility when purchasing CRM Online, they are going to offer three new online licenses and give customers the ability to mix and match amongst the three. Also, the online and on- premises licenses will be the same, making it easier for customers to compare and decide what works best for them.
Also, customers will have the ability to access their information on a variety of devices. No paying separately to access information on mobile devices! Now for the good stuff:
Professional ($65*) For the core CRM users, who need the full capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM including sales force automation as well as marketing and customer care. Most users will find this license best fits their needs.
Basic ($30*) For sales, service and marketing users who need to manage accounts, contacts, leads, cases and access custom applications as well as for business analysts who require reporting capabilities.
Essential ($15*) For light-weight users who need to access custom applications developed in house or by our vast network of partners.
(*) CRM Online list price shown per user per month in USD, actual pricing might vary by geography. Other fees may apply for add-on services such as additional storage, testing and production instances. Prices are exclusive of any fees you may incur to procure Internet connectivity.
