This is the traditional implementation of a software package. Microsoft CRM licensing and the hardware needed to run it are purchased up front and managed on site by the customer. In this selection, the customer owns every piece of material that is needed to run a Microsoft CRM solution and is responsible for its use and maintenance. The on-premise option has one of the lowest total costs of ownership and is available for companies who want greater control in how they implement and manage CRM.
Some companies find comfort and security in this traditional model; however the up front cost can be a pain point. This is not the solution we recommend for first time CRM software users.
The licensing requirements for each user for an On Premise solution are as follows:
- Microsoft CRM server and client
- Windows Server and client
- Microsoft SQL Server and client
- Microsoft Exchange Server and client
On-Premise Microsoft Dynamics CRM has not been reviewed by any customers.
