I am pleased to announce the release of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online iPad experience for salespeople, as well as new enterprise social networking scenarios offered through Yammer. Now you can access Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online through your Safari browser on your iPad, and more easily collaborate with colleagues in your organization.
This release creates a mobile experience for salespeople using Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online via Safari on an Apple iPad running iOS 6.0 or higher (note that this is not supported on Apple iPad mini). Specifically tailored to the information and activities of a salesperson—with access to accounts, contacts, leads, and opportunities—it also features full dashboard capabilities, as well as new Skype scenarios.
New Yammer scenarios offer a powerful yet simple means of communicating and collaborating with people, right within the business solutions you use every day. Now you can post messages from Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online to Yammer and vice versa. These messages can be associated with your opportunities, accounts, and other CRM records. In addition, you can easily follow leads, accounts, contacts, opportunities, and cases that you are interested in or responsible for. You can also participate in social conversations directly within Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, through the Yammer web and desktop applications, as well as apps running on Windows Phone, Apple iPhone, and Android mobile devices.
These new capabilities mark the next step in our commitment to deliver on our vision for the successful enterprise of the future—connecting employees, partners, and customers to the information they need, when and where they need it.
Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Dynamics CRM
