In my company we're considering leaving MS CRM v3.0 (we've just been using two of its features: address book and task management. Only.)
As the license prices of CRM are quite high we've thought it might be a pretty nice idea to try to figure out if there's a possibility to configure Exchange 2007 that way so we could use it as:
- 'relative' global address book (by 'relative' I mean 'having linked company-contact' = under a particular company view you can see persons which worked for this company; it means you first create a company and then the contacts; the company could be chosen from a list which is searchable; by 'global' I mean visible to all those people who are inside the domain; it would be wonderful if you can set permission rights);
- global task management which is linked to a particular company (task is visible from contact list view - inside particular contact/company; task is global - could be visible by all, but you can narrow the number of users).
I (personally) believe it's possible to build such a solution. The question is - how ;)
Looking forward to seeing your thoughts, guys!
