Real Estate Advantage™ Receives Certification for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0

Share Article

Real Estate Advantage™ is a specialized commercial (office, retail and industrial) real estate solution for property owners, asset managers, brokers, and leasing and servicing agents.

Ascendix Technologies has achieved certification of Real Estate Advantage™ for "Microsoft Dynamics CRM V3.0 Test for ISV Solutions." The certification milestone was achieved last quarter and was administered by VeriTest. The program identifies applications that successfully integrate with Microsoft Dynamics CRM V3.0. The testing and verification program ensures that applications integrate with CRM V3.0 in a supported manner, maintain the stability of the program, do not restrict any of the core functionality, and continue to function when service packs or upgrades to the base product are applied. VeriTest also confirmed that Real Estate Advantage™ adheres to all published specifications as outlined in the CRM V3.0 Software Development Kit (SDK).

"We worked very closely with the Microsoft ISV team to make certain our product has the native look and consistent feel of Microsoft CRM, yet meets the complex demands of the commercial real estate professional," stated Todd Terry, Managing Partner and CTO of Ascendix. "[These professionals] have to manage much more than just customer relationships. We invested a great deal of time in ensuring Microsoft CRM was the appropriate platform to deliver a solution allowing users to manage all aspects of their business: tenants, properties, leases, vendors and financial data, as well as the traditional marketing, opportunity forecasting, issue management and workflow inherent to the CRM platform. Because of Microsoft's robust platform and native integration with Office and Outlook, we feel strongly that we have made the right platform decision and delivered a world-class solution."

Ascendix will be unveiling the Real Estate Advantage™ solution through a series of regional product launch events, with locations tentatively set for Dallas, Irvine, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Boston. The first launch event is slated for February 6th in Dallas, Texas at the Microsoft offices in Las Colinas. Visit for more information on the schedule of events.
