The bring-your-own-device or BYOD movement has already caught on in the business world. Employees in many large organizations have the freedom to access their iPads, iPhones, and Android gadgets on the corporate intranet. BYOD, of course, makes even more sense for non-profits where IT budgets are not nearly as generous. With the upcoming Q4 upgrade to Dynamics CRM, Microsoft will be introducing BYOD support with its new “CRM Anywhere”.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Anywhere will deliver universal access across different mobile devices. In this upgrade, Microsoft will support Chrome, Safari, and Firefox browsers, as well as Internet Explorer. And for improved performance and easier access to CRM functions, there’ll be native mobile clients for Windows Phone 7.5, iPad, iPhone, Android, and Blackberry devices.
This is, of course, good news for non-profits since they can stretch their budgets by leveraging employees and volunteers’ personal tablet computers and smartphones.
There’s more good news for non-profits! Microsoft will support three devices per Dynamics CRM Anywhere user license, which will cost about $30. Many other vendors charge per device per user for this kind of service.
