How to Use the TextUs + Microsoft Dynamics SMS Integration
TextUs builds integrations with our users in mind. One of the top features for SMS is having the capability to integrate with a customer relationship management (CRM) tool. We are now offering Dynamics 365 text messaging as part of the Microsoft Dynamics suite of tools.
The TextUs and Microsoft Dynamics SMS integration enables sales and customer service teams to send and receive real-time, two-way text messages from MS Dynamics to enhance communication workflows and boost response rates. Dynamics 365 text conversations are logged back into MS Dynamics, making text messaging a seamless extension of current business systems, and streamlining data into one system of record.
