Phone integration in Dynamics 365 (Computer Telephony Integration)
Phone integration in Dynamics 365 is a very common topic during Dynamics CRM implementations.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Apps allow you to seamlessly connect your phone to CRM for faster and more effective multi-channel communication.
Since you already have CRM implemented in your company, you might want to allow its users to make and receive calls directly in CRM. Dynamics 365 provides built-in functionality that makes outgoing calls really easy. It’s based on Skype and you might need to purchase additional Skype / Office 365 subscription, so that your users might call external numbers.
What if you want full phone integration for incoming and outgoing calls in Dynamics 365?
Then you need a third-party tool that provide this functionality. Luckily, there are plenty of tools available for really low prices (monthly or one-time fees).
In this post we’re take a closer look at three most popular ones: RingCentral, Five9 and Bright Pattern (for much more complex scenarios).
