Microsoft Partners With Partners To Promote Early Access to CRM Live

DENVER -- Microsoft is launching a partner-driven program to promote early adoption of Dynamics Live CRM, the company announced Tuesday at the Worldwide Partner Conference in Denver.

The company will provide early access to the hosted version of its customer relationship management (CRM) product later this quarter, with general availability planned for 2008.

Early access will only be available through Microsoft partners, CRM General Manager Brad Wilson told the audience on the sold-out conference's first day. Partners involved in selling or supporting the solution will receive 10 percent of annual subscription revenues for as long as customers maintain the service.

Microsoft will offer two editions of Dynamics Live CRM:

  • The Professional Edition, to be offered free through 2007, then priced at $39 per user per month in 2008 and $44 per user per month in 2009.
  • The Enterprise Edition, to be priced at $59 per user per month. The higher-end edition, to become available in the first half of 2008, includes offline data-synchronization capability.

Details on the early-access program are available here.
