Microsoft Acquires LinkedIn

Microsoft's acquisition of LinkedIn, the leading business to business social media network is very exciting news for our Microsoft Dynamics CRM clients.

For Microsoft Dynamics CRM and GP users, the advantage is clear – accessibility. Even without CRM’s potential new features, the overall value of being able to natively embed LinkedIn’s repertoire of professional data and social context into Microsoft CRM and Outlook is powerful all on its own and will significantly simplify the overall user experience of both of these platforms. Productivity now will be more socially minded, making it easier to gather information about your customers, competition and industry.
