Dynamics 365 is one of the most deployed cloud-based CRM systems in the charity and non-profit sector and underpins much of the functionality provided in MemEx, our membership experience platform.
Microsoft recognises that you, as a non-profit organisation, play an incredibly important role in addressing the world’s biggest challenges and has a deep commitment to making world class cloud technology, like Dynamics 365, affordable and accessible to you.
