Ensim Announces Early Support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0


Integration of Multi-Tenant CRM Version with Unify Allows Quick Deployment of Popular Application


Santa Clara, CA – December 19, 2007 - Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of management software for unified communications infrastructure, today announced its support for Microsoft’s highly anticipated Dynamics CRM 4.0, the multi-tenant version of Microsoft’s customer relationship management (CRM) application. Ensim’s award-winning Unify Shared Edition is the first control panel to provide support for CRM, which will allow providers to easily add Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 as part of their hosted offering and with minimal capital expenditures.

Microsoft CRM addresses the key opportunities – and challenges – that determine the success or failure of any CRM initiative: user adoption, business fit, and total cost of ownership. The Microsoft Dynamics CRM hosted solution is built on the exact same code base as the on-premise Microsoft CRM Professional Edition, providing a choice of user interface, on-line or off-line usage, and flexible solutions and deployment.

Ensim Unify Shared Edition is a single, centralized software application that simplifies the day-to-day burden of activating, configuring and managing a service provider’s unified communications and collaboration infrastructure.

Unify allows service providers to:

  • Gain operational efficiencies through a comprehensive management platform with provisioning automation, resource management, monitoring and metering of hosted services
  • Delegate administration to allow resellers, enterprise administrators and end users to manage their hosted services based on credentials
  • Create, activate and configure users, applications and devices in a single instance
  • Accelerate sales with advanced white-label capabilities, enabling resellers to be launched in minutes and able to manage their own resources and hosted offering
  • Customize offerings easily from 15 pre-built connectors to hosted services including Hosted Exchange, SharePoint, BlackBerry and more.

“By supporting Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 on the same week as its general availability, we are able to give our customers a jump start in deploying this exciting new hosted offering,” said Francois Depayras, vice president of marketing and alliances at Ensim Corporation. “Hosters are able to manage their CRM hosted service alongside existing hosted services, such as Microsoft Hosted Exchange and SharePoint, allowing for tremendous operational efficiencies.”
