The market for customer relationship management (CRM), software has grown rapidly over the past several years with some analyst firms predicting the CRM market to be worth $81.9 billion by 2025. Market growth has introduced additional market choices and today, Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers the same benefits as more expensive CRM systems, and some ERP offerings as well, at a fraction of the cost.
Originally, Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM licensing was sold individually. In early 2020 Microsoft allowed customers to design their environment by adopting and paying only for those business apps that they actually needed. This led to the creation of sub-groups under Microsoft Dynamics CRM which now includes Dynamics Sales, Dynamics Marketing, Dynamics Field Service, Dynamics Customer Service and Dynamics Project Service Automation.
With its flexible licensing and contracts, Dynamics 365 has become an appealing choice among a diversity of mid-size enterprises. Gartner consistently places Microsoft in the Leaders Quadrant their Magic Quadrant for CRM based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute in the customer engagement center market including in the 2021 MQ.
A CRM/ERP, however, is only as good as its implementation and how well it meets the needs of its users, another reason for segmenting CRM into more flexible components to meet real customer needs. Many customers have been burned by implementations that grow in complexity and cost leaving them with a lower ROI or worse, lower cash reserves and increased debt resulting from an out-of-control implementation.
