It looks like Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile will be coming to the iPad this year. A Release Preview Guide for Microsoft Dynamics CRM lists iPad (running iOS 5 or greater) as the only tablet device due to get the mobile app in 2012.
Here’s a bit of the guide’s description of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile:
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Q2 21012 service update brings a new cloud based mobile CRM service called
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile to customers of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. As part of this new mobile solution,
Microsoft will provide a full range of rich native CRM applications (apps) for the most popular smartphones and
tablets. These new applications allow a sales, service or marketing professional to access Microsoft Dynamics CRM
both Online and On-premises.
This is one of Microsoft’s blue-chip business apps. It’s good to see it coming to the iPad, and makes sense of course given the iPad’s strong presence in the enterprise arena. Microsoft have now got a number of good app available for the iPad and iOS – maybe the chances are increasing that we’ll see MS Office on iOS in the not too distant future. I think Microsoft needs that to happen more than Apple does; it will be interesting to see if it happens.
Any Microsoft Dynamics CRM users here? If so, how useful would an iPad version be for you?
