Scribe Microsoft Dynamics AX Adapter

Scribe has released the new adapter for integrating CRM with AX. I am looking forward to work with this adapter and doing an integration project between Dynamics CRM and Dynamics AX. For more information about the new release, please click here. More detailed information on the AX adapter will come within two weeks.

SalesCentric into administration

SalesCentric has filed for bankruptcy and I am terrible sorry for Matthew. I know Matthew a long time and I have always supported Relationship Charts and Custom Views on my blog. I think these addons are a really great functionality for Dynamics CRM and I only can recommend eveybody to use these products. If you are using one of the above products and you still need support for this, please contact me and hopefully I can help.

Blog on

I recieved an email of Neal Houston if I want to post an article on the difference between Microsoft's Dynamics products.

If Google search results indicate the popularity of a topic, then there is clearly a lot of confusion over Microsoft's Dynamics products. A search for "the difference between Microsoft dynamics" returns 36,800 results!So with the recent launch of their ERP software service, Software Advice decided to shed some light on the Dynamics product family. Their article, "Microsoft Dynamics for Manufacturing – Understanding the Difference Between GP, NAV, SL and AX," explains how each product has evolved over the years and naturally become popular among certain industries and businesses. Check it out.

Please leave your comment because I'm curious on what my other colleagues think of this.
