Microsoft Dynamics 365, InsideView and Predict – What you need to know!

Microsoft Dynamics 365, InsideView and Predict – What you need to know!

Over the past few years, many organizations have come to rely on InsideView and Predict integrated with their Microsoft Dynamics 365 Online applications. With no additional charge for either solution, companies have been able to enhance lead generation, marketing efforts, industry knowledge and predictive modeling in addition to all of the other out of the box value that Dynamics brings to the table.

So what happens now that the services are no longer being offered? Fear not. If you already have InsideView or Predict installed, your organization may continue using the service until mid-August 2019. At that point, the services will be discontinued. This gives plenty of time to transition to a more permanent solution.

First up: InsideView. Insights by InsideView is a tool meant to enrich sales data. The solution provides real time data for companies and contacts you already have in Dynamics 365 including company specifics, employees and decision makes, industry information, similar companies and much more. It also helps identify and market to new leads. If you already have Dynamics 365 with Insights or are new to Dynamics and want to add the Insights solution, you have the opportunity to lock in promotional pricing of just $16/user/month. To take advantage of this promotional pricing, you must subscribe directly with InsideView on or before March 31, 2019. After that date, the price will go back to the standard $99/user/month. That's a discount of more than 80%. Wow! Plus, if you already have Insights and choose to lock in the promotional pricing, you will continue to receive the service free of charge through August 15, 2019.

Next up: Predict by Versium. Last year, Microsoft began offering the Predict solution to Dynamics 365 Online customers at no additional charge. In a nutshell, Predict is a Sales and Marketing tool that harnesses the power of Machine Learning to tell you which Leads are your most valuable, who is most likely to purchase your goods or services and where you should focus your efforts. Unfortunately, Microsoft has decided to discontinue including Predict with Dynamics 365 Online subscriptions, and if you have the solution installed, the service will turn off on August 15, 2019. A few months ago, Microsoft introduced Dynamics AI for Sales, which is available as an add-on for most Dynamics 365 customers. AI for Sales includes several of the features included in the Predict Solution. Some of our favorite features include interactive reports, productivity metrics, call intelligence, customer sentiment, conversational KPI's and much, much more. To learn more about this exciting offering, check out our earlier blog article highlighting several of the new features included.
