Microsoft Dynamics 365 Product Visualize, an augmented reality mobile application on iOS, accelerates the sales process by helping buyers and sellers reach a shared understanding, faster. Dynamics 365 Product Visualize was released to public preview in April 2019. It features deep data and workflow integration with Dynamics 365 Sales. With the 2020 release wave 1, a new set of capabilities will focus on enabling salespeople to conduct deeper and more information-rich demonstrations of their products.
The expansion of the Spatial Notes (3D model annotations) system directly addresses pain points heard from customers about the challenges they face as they try to convey information about a product, like its capabilities, how it functions, and how to service it. This is particularly true for companies that manufacture complex equipment with long sales cycles and increasing levels of technical sophistication that their customers struggle to comprehend. Consistent with the Spatial Notes data strategy introduced in public preview, all Spatial Notes are stored in Common Data Service. This allows for augmented reality–assisted sales interactions to connect downstream processes.
