Gavin Gee reports that Microsoft has released a demo and trial version of its customer relationship management platform “Hosted CRM 4.0” via. HostedMicrosoftCRMTrial, 60-day trial sessions of hosted CRM 4.0 are offered. However, the new initiative is not synonymous with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online service. The software giant has simply put together a testing platform set up for its hosting partners.
“The updated trial site leverages the multi-tenancy capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0,” Gee stated. “The trial instance is an organizational level deployment with administrative permissions. This means that each trial user has full access and control over their trial organization to add users and share the CRM product with others. In the previous version, the trial instance was provisioned as a business unit thus permissions were limited. A trial instance can be localized in the user's language of choice – the product is available in 25 languages (including English). Users worldwide can now experience their CRM trial the same way they'll consume it.”
