About Microsoft Philippines

Manila, Philippines, 2 March 2006 - Microsoft Philippines today announced the local availability of Microsoft Dynamics™ CRM 3.0, the highly anticipated new release of Microsoft’s customer relationship management (CRM) solution for small businesses, midsize companies and large enterprises. Microsoft CRM provides a complete suite of powerful marketing, sales and service capabilities, all with a familiar and consistent user experience based on Microsoft® Office and Microsoft Office Outlook®. Extensive new configuration, customization and integration capabilities make it easy for customers and partners to deploy highly tailored solutions that drive measurable business results and offer a low total cost of ownership.

The product is offered in a Professional Edition and a Small Business Edition, and was first launched in the United States of America in December 2005.

“Businesses demand a CRM solution that is easy to use, adaptable and affordable,” said Edd Cabardo, Mid Market Marketing Manager of Microsoft Philippines. “Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 delivers a major breakthrough in the CRM marketplace. With its native Microsoft Office and Outlook experience and a flexible platform that gives customers a true choice of deployment options, we are bringing the power of CRM to information workers, enabling them to better understand their customers, be more productive and have a positive impact on their business’ bottom line.”

Addressing the Key Needs in the CRM Market Today

Microsoft CRM is built to address the three key challenges that determine the success or failure of most CRM initiatives: user adoption, business fit and total cost of ownership.

• Works the way you do. Microsoft CRM drives high user adoption by delivering roles-based CRM capabilities within a native Microsoft Office and Outlook experience. Users can choose to use a rich Outlook client or access the system through a browser-based client or a mobile device.

• Works the way your business does. Microsoft CRM easily adapts to each company’s unique needs. Powerful event-driven workflow capabilities drive consistent process execution across the organization, and powerful reporting and analytics capabilities based on Microsoft Excel® and SQL Server™ Reporting Services offer real-time visibility into every business process and customer interaction.

• Works the way technology should. Microsoft CRM delivers a low total cost of ownership by offering a highly flexible and configurable platform built on Web services and other standard tools and technologies.

Focus Expands to Address Large Enterprise Customers

In addition to serving the needs of small and midsize businesses, Microsoft CRM’s breakthrough usability, flexibility and cost benefits are generating significant interest from enterprise customers as well as global systems integrators.

New Small Business Edition Delivering Power and Simplicity

The new release of Microsoft CRM offers a new version designed for small businesses. The new Small Business Edition is designed to run on Microsoft Windows® Small Business Server (SBS) and offers a full CRM suite that can be installed with just 10 clicks. It provides wizard-driven configuration of the application, integrates tightly with SBS features such as fax management and integrated server management, and offers an easy migration path from Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager.

Giving Customers a Choice of Deployment Models

As of Jan. 1, 2006, Microsoft offers subscription-based licensing to partners that deliver hosted solutions based on Microsoft CRM. This continues Microsoft’s strong commitment to providing a choice of flexible and affordable CRM functionality in both on-premise and hosted deployment models. Since the same code is used in both models, customers can choose whichever deployment model fits their business and technical requirements at any point in time.

Microsoft CRM has already been deployed by and is delivering results for a select group of small businesses, midsize companies and large enterprises around the world. These early adopter customers include companies such as Absolute Software Corp., CommtechWireless, Corrilian Corp., Essex Medical & Forensic Services Ltd., Greater Twin Cities United Way, Grosvenor Property Management, H&R Block, Perot Systems Corp., Phillips Enabling Technologies Group, Tourism Whistler and Volvo Baumaschinen Österreich GmbH.
