Brad Wilson, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics CRM at Microsoft, said in a company press release, “Microsoft Dynamics CRM is making the power of choice a reality for businesses around the world. This new release further enables us to deliver on Microsoft’s software plus services strategy and provide our CRM solutions with a great user experience and exceptional business value.”
 
Available in more than 25 languages all over the world, the English language pack of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 will be available within the next seven days to new and existing partners and customers. Existing customers who have an active Software Assurance plan for Microsoft Dynamics CRM can get the new release at no additional charge.
