Empower even more people to be productive

Microsoft Dynamics Client for Office is a package of self service applications built around the Microsoft Office system.  These applications combine role-based access to information and processes with the business insights and collaboration capabilities of Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

Research shows that on average, 85 percent of employees within an organization don't have direct access to critical business data within business management solutions, such as Microsoft Dynamics. Microsoft Dynamics Client for Office provides a cost-effective solution for connecting employees to the processes and information within these systems.

With Microsoft Dynamics Client for Office employees can:

  • Access Microsoft Dynamics information via a browser working with a Microsoft SharePoint site or through Microsoft Office products such as Excel and Outlook
  • Make faster, more informed decisions
  • Work in familiar applications and with information that is specific to their role, and with appropriate access privileges.
