Understanding the need for a cost-effective licensing option to extend Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 to non-traditional users of CRM, Microsoft has announced the limited time Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 "5 for 4" Employee Self Service Client Access License (ESS CAL) promotion from October 1, 2011 – March 31, 2012 June 30, 2012 (extended from March). This promotion offers a 20% discount off the standard ESS CAL price, meaning your customers get five ESS CAL licenses for the price of four.

The ESS CAL allows organizations to cost-effectively access and update data in Microsoft Dynamics CRM via custom user interfaces (UIs) as well as enables extended CRM scenarios that require limited read/write access to custom entity records. The ESS CAL is a perfect fit for multiplexing users that require indirect access to limited functionality of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. Refer to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Pricing and Licensing Guide for a complete list of license use rights.
