Our company has a long history of working with Microsoft. We’ve been writing UI Controls for Microsoft platforms since the early days of VB; in the 1990s, our famous FlexGrid control shipped in the box with Visual Studio. Most recently, we’ve been working with Microsoft to integrate Wijmo into Microsoft Dynamics. They’d planned to expand mobile support in their 2016 release, and one of the key features was new mobile UI controls. Microsoft chose Wijmo 5 for mobile input and gauges.

Working with the Dynamics team has been great. They had some nice suggestions that we were able to deliver, like the new thumb (handle) for touch gesture support in our gauges. They were also very thorough in testing on mobile devices, isolating some very specific issues that we were able to quickly resolve before release. We hope to continue this long-standing relationship with Microsoft and look forward to working with them throughout the coming years.

Here’s the official press announcement about Microsoft Dynamics and Wijmo 5.

Microsoft Dynamics Uses Wijmo 5 to Deliver Mobile User Interface Options

With the launch of the 2016 update to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, Microsoft’s latest version includes new mobile capabilities for administrators and customizers. To build the new mobile interface for its Dynamics CRM solution, Microsoft used the high-quality JavaScript controls in Wijmo 5, a collection of true JavaScript UI controls by GrapeCity. Complete with touch support and broad device support, clean design, and easily customizable controls, Wijmo 5’s gauge and input controls were helpful in developing user friendly interface options for Microsoft Dynamics customers.

“Businesses are increasingly looking for intelligent customer engagement solutions that provide a great mobile experience and Wijmo 5’s touch support and mobile-friendly user interactions enable us to deliver that for our customers” said Param Kahlon, from Microsoft. “With Wijmo’s extensibility model, the Microsoft Dynamics team was able to quickly customize and incorporate Wijmo 5 controls into our new release.”

Top Reasons Microsoft Dynamics chose Wijmo 5:

  • Touch Support
  • Mobile-Friendly User Interactions
  • Broad Device Support
  • Clean Design and Highly-customizable
  • Globalization for 40+ Cultures
  • Flexible Input and Gauges Control
