Dynamics 365 Licensing Check

Avoid licensing Dynamics 365 users with insufficient use rights, or paying unnecessary cost for functions that aren't needed.

If your organisation is licensed with Dynamics 365 Online, we'll quickly confirm the correct licence types for each user by reviewing their usage of the system.

Our tool will check usage for each person across any Dynamics 365 CRM environment. We'll present a report with our findings to confirm which licence each user should be equipped with. This will help you identify and fix any non-compliant licensing issues and reduce costs if some users are licensed with more capabilities than they need.
