Dynamics CRM 2013 – Feature Dive – Mobile

Forceworks Dynamics CRM 2013 – Feature Dive – Mobile

Spoiler Alert… Mobile is big. Being able to not only access, but actually utilize your CRM from a phone or tablet is going to change the way CRM has been used in the past. You no longer have to wait until you get back to the office to input or update your deals.  Dynamics CRM 2013 mobile applications keep salespeople connected to data, team members, and customers. With mobile access to your CRM solution, you have the tools you need to not only look smarter but also to be smarter.

Powerful Tablet Applications

Microsoft Dynamics CRM for tablets helps you stay connected and productive wherever you are. Use your iPad or Windows 8 tablet to stay up to date with your customer info—even when you’re on the go. Arrive prepared for every appointment, and update your notes, tasks, contacts, accounts, and leads while the details are still fresh in your mind. Data is cached for offline viewing so you can still access key data if connectivity is lost.
