Amazing Subscription Deal for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales and Marketing -- For Small Business



My blog is not usually focused on bargain hunting, but Microsoft is offering a promotion for a limited time which represents more than fifty percent off the normal price of a Dynamics 365 Sales subscription for qualifying small businesses.  The offer is called Dynamics 365 for Sales and Customer Service, Enterprise Editions (SMB Offer) and the offer ID is 4F01C23A-C125-4E94-AAC4-E7B741C98052.

For U.S. customers, contact sales@infostrat.com for a price quote.

Sales Only.  A temporary promotional SKU for a version of Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise edition is available for up to 50 users with an estimated retail price of USD $40/user/month compared to the standard retail price of $95/user/month.

Sales and Limited Marketing. A similar version is available which includes sales and limited marketing functions for $65/user/month.

As you may know, Microsoft is planning to release Business Editions of Dynamics 365 for small business, but has experienced delays in getting them to market.   The promotion is intended to bridge the gap before the new Business Edition is available.  Only new customers are eligible for the promotions.

Here are the details from the information sheet:

Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise edition (SMB Offer). A temporary SKU for a version of Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise edition is available with an estimated retail price of USD $40/user/month. This SKU includes both the Sales functionality and the basic Marketing elements currently within Dynamics CRM Online (e.g. campaign and lead management, but not Microsoft Dynamics Marketing). The temporary SKU does not include access to any Customer Service functionality, as that is now part of the Customer Service application within the Dynamics 365 Enterprise edition. Use rights of this temporary SKU are identical to those of the regular Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise edition license, except there is no access to Operations, and there are no dual use rights. 

Dynamics 365 for Sales and Customer Service, Enterprise edition (SMB Offer). Dynamics 365 for Sales and Customer Service, Enterprise edition is available with an estimated retail price of USD $65/user/month. This SKU includes the functionality of the current Sales, Enterprise edition, and the Customer Service, Enterprise edition. Use rights of this temporary SKU are identical to those of the regular Dynamics 365 for Sales, Enterprise edition and Dynamics 365 for Customer Service, Enterprise edition licenses combined, except there is no access to Operations, and there are no dual use rights.

Dynamics 365 for Team Members, Enterprise edition (SMB Offer). New customers that purchase the above SKUs will also be able to obtain a version of Team Members, Enterprise edition targeted at SMB customers with an estimated retail price of $5/user/month, which is in alignment with the current Dynamics 365 Business edition pricing. Use rights of this temporary SKU are identical to those of the regular Dynamics 365 for Team Members, Enterprise edition, except there is no access to Operations, and there are no dual use rights.

PowerApps Portal: The Successor to Microsoft Dynamics Portal

In case you have been reviewing Microsoft's new pricing for its Dynamics products which was released this month and have been unable to find Dynamics Portal, it has been rebranded as PowerApps Portal and shifted to the PowerApps side of the Microsoft product family.


Rebranding the portal product underscores the importance of app scenarios involving external users such as customers and suppliers.  It also provides a simpler interface than Dynamics 365 for occasional users.

The new portal pricing is based on the number of unique users who log into the portal each month (for authenticated users) and on the number of page views for anonymous users.  "A login provides an external authenticated user access to a single portal for up to 24 hours. Multiple logins during the 24-hour period count as 1 billable login. Internal users can be licensed either by the PowerApps per app or per users plans, or a qualifying Dynamics 365 subscription."

Pricing starts at $200/mo. for 100 dail…
