Join Michael Intravartolo as he answers user submitted questions regarding Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional.
Q: What is Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional?
A: Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional is just the name of the SKU. What this product does is streamline Microsoft's Sales solution. A good way to think about this is as core sales force automation (SFA) that can be used by an organization without having a complex sales organization. If there's a need for a more complex Sales solution this is where the Dynamics 365 for Sales Enterprise SKU comes into play because it can provide customizations, extensibility and embedded intelligence, in addition to all the functionality available within the Professional Sales product.
Q: What is happening to Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise edition?
A: Simply put nothing. The current Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise Edition product is going to be rebranded to Dynamics 365 for Sales and this will continue to be Microsoft's overall Sales application.
Q: What roles within an organization can Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional be used for?
A: Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional is used for various roles within organizations such as Field Service, Inside Sales, Telesales, and much more.
Q: Why should I purchase Dynamics 365 for Sales Professional?
A: There's many reasons but it really depends upon your organization and what it does.
