Microsoft CRM solutions for Education can help you:

  • Increase student and parent engagement. Give students easy ways to connect with their teachers and their peers to get them more engaged in their classes. Bringing parents into that collaborative environment gives students the support they need to perform at their highest levels.
  • Facilitate anytime, anywhere learning. Provide your students with single sign-on (SSO) access to learning materials and campus resources—from library content to complete online courses—at any time, from virtually anywhere, and from any type of connected device. You’ll create a virtual campus that never closes.
  • Make better decisions. Inform routine decisions and long-range strategic planning across all organizational functions and disciplines with accurate, readily available data presented in intuitive and familiar formats.
  • Let teachers focus on instruction. Make it easier for your teachers to find instructional resources, assess students, record and track grades, and communicate with their colleagues, students, and parents. They will have more time and energy to facilitate meaningful learning experiences that meet the unique needs of individual students.
  • Streamline administrative tasks. Make it easy for students to register for classes, access financial aid information, pay their tuition, sign up for lunch programs, report absences, and accomplish many other tasks, from any computer with Internet access.
  • Combine a flexible, familiar interface with a powerful business intelligence (BI) engine. When you deliver BI through Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, you have an integrated platform that can provide relevant information to every employee, in formats familiar to them, such as Microsoft Excel.

Using Microsoft Dynamics CRM, you can:

    • Get a 360-degree view of your school, district, or campus with tools for educators and administrators that are easy to use and manage
    • Increase productivity and enhance collaboration
    • Quickly develop applications for learning, education, research, faculty, and student management with the xRM framework

Why choose Microsoft?

With Microsoft CRM solutions for Education, you get:

    • Reduced costs. Take advantage of your existing investments in Microsoft products, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Office, and Windows Server.
    • Flexible functionality and deployment. Microsoft education portals are simple enough for novice users yet robust enough for power users. A scalable, standards-based platform means you can start small and then roll out new features and functionality as you are ready.
    • Familiar and intuitive interfaces. Add and customize content on your portal with the ability to integrate with familiar Microsoft Office applications, such as Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office Excel.
    • Personalized, role-based access. Providing single sign-on access to content on your portal based on role is simple, so you can help ensure that everyone finds what they need—and sees only what they are authorized to see. Setting up personalized dashboards that put key information (like class schedules) and applications (such as email) in one place is a snap.
    • Streamline administrative tasks. Make it easy for students to register for classes, access financial aid information, pay their tuition, sign up for lunch programs, report absences, and accomplish many other tasks, from any computer with Internet access.
    • Robust support community. Join a large group of other educators from around the world who are having success with portals and sharing their best practices.
