The Microsoft Business Solutions Competency allows partners to identify their unique, proven proficiency in deploying applications based on Microsofts financial, CRM and supply chain management solutions. Specialisations within the competency include Microsoft Business Solutions Axapta, now part of Microsoft Dynamics; Microsoft Dynamics GP; Microsoft Business Solutions Navision, now part of Microsoft Dynamics; Microsoft Dynamics SL, formerly Microsoft Business Solutions Solomon; Microsoft Dynamics CRM; and Microsoft C5.

 Microsoft partners that specialize in business applications meet a unique market need, said Tami Reller, corporate vice president of Microsoft Business Solutions at Microsoft Corp. We are rolling out programmes and initiatives such as the Microsoft Business Solutions Competency that are designed to not only bring continuity to partners in how they work with us, but also to provide partners with a way to showcase their expertise in ERP and CRM to customers that depend on them for services.
