Microsoft Dynamics CRM Unified Service Desk aka USD
With the CRM Online Spring `14 release of Dynamics CRM we can now start using the all NEW Unified Service Desk (USD). This is an exciting step forward for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. I have been with many customers over the past week that have shown great interest for this solution and how is will allow traditional call centers to be transformed into multichannel contact centers.
Take a look at the Overview of the Unified Service Desk
Unified Service Desk (USD) provides a configurable framework for quickly building Agent Desktop applications that are tightly integrated with the features of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. USD makes it convenient for our customers to leverage the power of the User Interface Integration (UII) framework and reduces the lead-time for making a customized Agent Desktop application for their business needs.
