xRM Web Gateway Now Compatible with CRM 2013

xRM has recently released the newest version of xRM Web Gateway, adding compatibility with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 as well as with the Fall ’13 release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.

xRM Web Gateway is compatible with the following versions of Dynamics CRM:

  • Internet-facing Deployments (IFD) of on-premises Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online
  • Partner-hosted Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 and CRM 2011 (ADFS)
