Here are just some of the several Microsoft Dynamics CRM benefits and reasons for its success. One of the most important Microsoft Dynamics CRM benefits is its common look and feel. If you are familiar with Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Interent Explorer, you are familiar with Microsoft CRM’s user friendly interface. As most computer users already use and spend most of their day in Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Internet Explorer, the acceptance level for their CRM solution greatly increases as they are not required to learn or use a third application that they have never seen before. Research concludes that 70% of business users spend 78% of their entire workday either in Microsoft Outlook or IE. These numbers are so staggering that the other CRM software publishers are forced to integrate their product with Outlook. Clearly, Microsoft CRM has a huge advantage.

This is one of the advantages of Microsoft Dynamics CRM: there is one less thing to launch on the desktop and one less vendor application that needs to be supported. The user only needs to launch Microsoft Outlook and continue working with an application they are already comfortable and happy with. Learn More
