3Cinteractive introduced consumer-facing mobile capabilities at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence (News - Alert) that took place in Houston, TX, from March 18-21, 2012. The CRM solution is capable of handling all aspects of communication, which includes opt-in/out management, real-time chat, order updates, targeted marketing broadcasts and more. With the newly launched product, Microsoft (News - Alert) Dynamics CRM clients across industries will be able to leverage mobile to widen the reach of their present efforts directly to their consumer's mobile app.
The design of the new solution allows it to integrate effortlessly into the cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 system.
