Once data has been synchronized to Outlook, this same data can be synchronized to a variety of PDA and cell phone devices over the wireless network or by using the typical desktop synchronization software that is included with the devices. Changes that are made on the wireless device – say a contact update, rescheduled appointment, or completed task – are synchronized back into Dynamics CRM the next time the user synchronizes their device with Outlook.
While the Dynamics CRM mobile client offers a great deal of functionality for Windows-mobile users, it has been our experience in working with sales teams across vertical markets that users typically only use a few features from their PDAs. Specifically, they access contact information, reminders, and to-dos, all of which are supported by Dynamics CRM through the Outlook synchronization on any of the devices.
