Insights, Powered by InsideView, Gets Sleek New Redesign for Launch of Microsoft Dynamics 365

Insights 4.0, the Microsoft-Branded Version of InsideView, Offers the Full Power of InsideView Included Free for Dynamics 365 Online Subscribers

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - October 11, 2016) - InsideView today announced an updated version of Insights, the Microsoft-branded version of InsideView Sales, embedded within Microsoft Dynamics 365. The sleek, intuitive, new version rolls out as Microsoft launches its breakthrough Dynamics 365 cloud business suite. Insights 4.0 is more deeply embedded in the sales workflow than ever, so sellers can quickly find data, insights, and connections wherever they are within their Microsoft Dynamics 365 environment and use that intelligence to close deals faster. Insights 4.0 is available at no additional charge with all Microsoft Dynamics 365 online Professional and Enterprise subscriptions in the U.S. and Canada, and by exception in several countries in Europe, plus Australia.

Research shows that customer response rates increase 32 percent when based on timely insights. In addition, customer response rates increase as much as 84 percent when there's a shared connection or relationship. Before a seller even picks up a phone or types an email, Insights 4.0 provides critical information so they can target the right prospect with the right message at the right time, and open conversations through shared connections.

"Microsoft is the only major CRM provider to embed external customer data, millions of key contacts, and timely, actionable insights within CRM at no additional cost. That's leadership," said Heidi Tucker, VP of Global Alliances at InsideView. "Buyers expect salespeople to be relevant, understand their business issues, and come prepared with meaningful solutions. Microsoft Dynamics 365 subscribers get that advantage included with their CRM Online license. All they have to do is turn it on. And now, it's even easier with Insights 4.0."

Insights 4.0, powered by InsideView, now offers a more streamlined, seamless user experience within the new Microsoft Dynamics 365, as well as the current version Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015. In addition to Insights' already robust access to more than 30 million contacts, and the intuitive new interface, Insights 4.0 adds the following features:

  • New filtering capabilities to easily find and import the right contacts into CRM
  • Discovery Center, where users can search InsideView's database of 12 million+ companies and add them to CRM
  • Custom field mapping to allow Insights data to easily update company and contact records in Microsoft Dynamics 365
  • Social feed suppression to enable/disable social media integration
  • Social media stream customization to tailor the individual user experience

Insights 4.0 is available today. Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Dynamics CRM online subscribers can turn on their Insights by going to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Customer Care Center.

Insights is included at no additional charge in all Professional and Enterprise subscriptions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM online in the U.S. and Canada, and by exception in Austria, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and UK.
