Microsoft plans to reduce the price its partners will pay for its newest customer relationship management software, code-named Titan, the company's latest foray into software-as-a-service (SaaS) CRM.
Microsoft has enrolled partners throughout the world to sell Titan, whose formal name is Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. Those partners will pay 40 percent less for subscription licenses for the on-demand version, the company plans to announce on Tuesday at Convergence 2007, Microsoft's European customer conference for its Dynamics business applications.
Partners will now pay 40 percent less than they're paying for the previous version of the software, Dynamics 3.0. Those charges vary by country and currency, said Mark Corley, senior director of Microsoft's CRM channel strategy.
