In the years I’ve spent working with Dynamics CRM I’ve identified a gap in the Dynamics CRM material available to end users. While there is an abundance of resources aimed at developers, end users often find themselves overwhelmed by the amount of detail in such books,” explains Nicolae Tarla, Senior CRM Consultant at Navantis, “this book aims to take a new or existing user through both the basics and the new features in Dynamics CRM 2015. It is a great resource for someone evaluating the features of the platform as part of the purchase decision process, as well as for existing system users aiming to become power users and take over increased responsibilities in managing the platform.

Nicolae provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to the application and the fundamental administration skills to master the full range of Dynamics CRM features. The book also walks readers through the initial set up of a 30-day trial of the online application. Nicolae facilitates understanding and aids readers in the adoption of the platform by providing specific examples throughout the book, which readers can easily replicate. Using this no-code approach readers will be able to efficiently master the skills necessary to customize their CRM system and use business rules and process flows to enforce and enhance user experience.

“This book is an outstanding reference for everything Microsoft Dynamics CRM,” explains Salim Adamon CRM Consultant & Solution Architect and Microsoft MVP for Dynamics CRM. “In the field, I talk to a lot of decision makers looking to implement CRM solutions who could benefit from reading it. It gives a proper understanding of the modules that come with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform as well as the different extensibility points. The book also provides an overview of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM administration which is great for in-house system administrators that are not Dynamics CRM professionals. I will certainly refer this book a lot in the future.”
