Dynamics: Paid To Play

As Rod Blagojevich, whose family nickname is apparently Milorad, knows there is nothing like a good bribe.

While I don't think Microsoft is breaking any federal laws, it is offering monetary incentives to move you from Salesforce.com and other CRM products to Dynamics CRM Online. The honchos in Redmond will give you a cool one hundred and fifty smackers for every user that makes the move. And you have until this March to decide.

The catch is you have to sign up for a two-year deal -- something I imagine goes for well more than $150. In fact, the cost per user for 24 months is $1,056, if my high school math skills have remained intact.

Still, if you are inclined to move to Dynamics CRM, that dough can help with training, migrations or a bunch of office lunches.
