CRM Online Steps Closer To Office 365

Try A Little Tenderness…

Yesterday (Thursday 19th July 2012), we took another step towards the convergence of our CRM Online and Office 365 cloud services. Anyone signing up for a CRM Online 30 day trial, will now automatically be set up on the Microsoft Online Service Portal (MOSP) administration, billing & provisioning platform that is used by Office 365. This is great news since new customers no longer have to worry about how they manage Windows Live IDs for each of their users. It also means it is really easy to set up both credit card and invoice billing when upgrading from a trial to a full subscription.

To sign up for a 30-trial, simply visit and click on the “Free Trial” link, then “Try Now”.


Once there, you will no longer see the old CRM Online signup page, but instead you will be presented with the new Microsoft Online Services signup page.


We haven’t reached the end of our journey yet, since we still have a number of customers who are using CRM Online on the old platform. However, over the coming few months, you should expect to see announcements about how we plan to migrate those customer onto the Microsoft Online Service Portal.
