Ribbon Workbench for Dynamics CRM

Customising/editing the Dynamics CRM Ribbon/Command Bar has never been easier with the Ribbon Workbench for Dynamics CRM. Unlike other editors available, the Ribbon Workbench allows you to perform a complete set of customisations that have only been possible up until now by hand editing xml. 

The Ribbon Workbench is installed as a CRM solution and is available immediately from inside the Dynamics CRM user interface.
