VAR Dynamics Combines CRM, Mobile Access

SaaS-based TenDigits MobileAccess for Dynamics CRM provides access from Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and RIM's BlackBerry.

VAR Dynamics has launched TenDigits MobileAccess for Dynamics CRM. The SaaS offering provides access to Microsoft Dynamics CRM from RIM's BlackBerry and Windows Mobile smart phones, and from Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPodTouch.

San Jose-based VAR Dynamics also offers Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and other SaaS IT server-oriented applications through channel partners.

VAR Dynamics (previously, The Message Center) is one of several companies that TenDigits announced a partnership with in December 2009 to offer TenDigits MobileAccess as a hosted service.

TenDigits MobileAccess for Dynamics CRM is the only Microsoft-certified Dynamics CRM mobility app, according to Tony Francisco, President and CEO of VAR Dynamics. Previously, according to Francisco, companies using Dynamics CRM as a hosted service would have had to buy and run a TenDigits server running Windows 2003 Server SP1 or Windows 2008 and SQL Server, TenDigits server software plus 50 client licenses, and associated services, would typically cost around $20,000, according to TenDigits.

Pricing to VAR Dynamics resellers and other channel partners is, for hosted Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 starts at $29.95 with 5GB of storage, and $21.95 for TenDigits Mobile Access, per seat per month.

VAR Dynamics, previously known as The Message Center, offers core IT and application server applications as hosted services available as SaaS, through channel partners, including a number of mobility-oriented services that it claims are distinctive or even unique. "We have the only self-service ten-digits-provisioning mobile access for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, which allows users to add and remove their phone numbers, and adjust their permissions," said Francisco.

VAR Dynamics channel partners include VARs with a strong focus on the expanding SMB market for SaaS, like Rhino Network Solutions and Wireless IQ, along with leading cloud service providers such as CallTower and Jamcracker, and, for the Dynamics CRM/TenDigits offering, Microsoft.
