"Today's announcements take Sales Navigator to the next level," Doug Camplejohn, LinkedIn sales solutions head of product, said in a blog.
The new product steps up competition with arch rival Salesforce.
Microsoft beat out Salesforce to acquire Linkedin for $26.2 billion — by far the company's largest acquisition to date — in June.
Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff was so concerned, he accused the company of "anti-competitive behavior" and urged regulators to investigate.
Flash-forward less than a year and Microsoft's new Sales Navigator Enterprise Edition incorporates many features aimed at turning LinkedIn into a must-have tool for sales teams at big companies.
Among other features, the new enterprise version increases the number of LinkedIn messages users can send to 50 per month, makes it easier for large companies to manage the product by adding single sign-on and allows sales teams to draw on LinkedIn connections from anyone within their organization with a new feature called TeamLink Extend.
The Sales Navigator tool does integrate with Salesforce's CRM system, as well as Microsoft's competing Dynamics CRM. But it's also a clear indication of the synergies between LinkedIn, which has a massive database of information about professionals and their business relationships, and Microsoft's ambitions to target company sales forces with its products.
