Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters


It appears that several of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) Solomon's truly differentiating traits, which could not have been easily or quickly replicated by its seemingly more robust brethren products within the MBS division, will have been a good enough reason for Microsoft to continue to bolster the product rather than to consider any other less popular options (e.g., stabilization and replacement) to offer to Solomon's loyal customer base and resellers, some of which will have even feared the possibility.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM: Much More Than Meets the Eye - Part 3

Microsoft to Add "Encore" Functionality to MBS Great Plains 8.0 Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations
