Following hot on the heels of the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft is set to improve accessibility to its customer relationship management (CRM) solution – by making it available via Open Licensing subscription from February. Softcat anticipates significant interest from its customers, with transitioning to the cloud ranking as a top priority for many organisations.

James Baker, alliances director at Softcat, said: “We’re really pleased that Microsoft is making an already popular product more accessible by making it available via Open Licensing – we can’t wait to start providing it to more of our customers. Microsoft’s procurement options have changed and evolved to adapt the needs of customers, and as a result its solutions have become more accessible and cost effective for a wider proportion of our customer base, particularly SMBs.”

Microsoft’s Open Licensing strategy tallies with the general increase in demand for solutions run as a service, removing the need for significant investment and opening up the solution to a wider market. With CRM online, organisations are able to engage more fully with customers, from sales through social analysis to customer care. Microsoft’s CRM solution comes in three versions, and offers organisations full visibility and management of workflows, activities, reports and contact information, all from an easy to use dashboard.

Softcat transacted the largest number of new Office 365 SMB agreements for Microsoft Cloud in the last quarter. As a Volume Licensing, Cloud Accelerate and Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), its dedicated Cloud team is well positioned to advise and assist customers with the license purchasing options for CRM online. In addition, Softcat’s network of trusted partners are available to assist with planning your migration and deployment.
