Communications Panel for Dynamics CRM 4

After the excitement generated from our Dynamics NAV guru Johan Emilsson’s great work integrating OCS with Dynamics NAV (Webcast on that coming soon), there was much discussion internally about doing a similar example for CRM.

Today I came across this – and I am very glad that this has been released as it seems to make perfect sense to me that OCS and CRM SHOULD work seemlessly together. This is something I have wanted to see for CRM for some time so I am really excited about this!

The Agent Communications Panel for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 is an application add-in to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.

The Agent Communications Panel is an XAML browser application (XBAP). It is published to a Web server and opened from a Web browser.

The Agent Communications Panel embeds with CRM itself:
