Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2016 provides flexible, high value, and simple-to-understand licensing for Dynamics CRM in the cloud. The new multi-tiered licensing model offers a variety of benefits, including:
- Flexibility. Customers can mix and match various types of user licenses (USLs) within a deployment to accommodate the specific needs of their businesses
- High value. Customers can choose from highly competitive licensing offerings to optimize the Total Cost of Ownership
- Easy-to-Understand. Customers can obtain licenses based on the functionality that users require (rather than how users access the application)
- Choice. Equivalency in the licensing use rights of online and on- premises licenses makes it easier for customers to compare and decide what works best for them
Below I've created a 'one-slider' to help you understand the USL-to-Feature/Service relationships.
