Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a customer relationship management application from Microsoft, that provides sales, service, and marketing capabilities. Microsoft sells Microsoft Dynamics CRM separately from the ERP products. CRM is available either as on-premises software or as a software-as-a-service offering called Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.

Starting in late 2016, Microsoft has created a new cloud-based SaaS-only combined ERP/CRM solution called Microsoft Dynamics 365. This provides a new web-based version of Dynamics AX (renamed Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations), combined with a new web based version of Dynamics NAV (called Dynamics 365 Business Central) and an updated Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online (Dynamics 365 for Sales). This new integrated, ERP/CRM is provided solely through Microsoft Azure and is completely web-based.
