We rarely if ever post vendors news but considering the official demise of Dynamics Marketing, this one is hard to ignore.
We’ve long been a big fan of Campaign Monitor, the (proudly Australian) vendor very much focused on helping to create beautiful and actionable emails “your customers can’t ignore”. And they just announced integration with Dynamics CRM. Focusing solely on building marketing lists and pulling customer information into Campaign Monitor itself, it does not look like a product in the same league as ClickDimensions but then, again, it’s not pretending to be.
If you have Dynamics CRM and are Campaign Monitor user/fan, this is something worth exploring and it certainly gives you a very good immediate (and inexpensive) alternative to the Dynamics 365 for Marketing that is not going to see the light of the day until Spring 2017.
