Is Microsoft's Dynamics 365 the ERP for Your Company?
What is Microsoft Dynamics 365?
Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a cloud-based tool that combines the technologies of traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions into a single system. Known for its ease of use and simple integration, Dynamics 365 may be just what your company needs. However, how do you know if Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the ERP for your company?
While using Microsoft Dynamics 365 does have a variety of advantages, it may not be the ideal solution for all companies. It is important to understand the following features of the software in conjunction with your company’s specific needs.
Features of Dynamics 365
Dynamics 365 is based in the cloud, and as such you can access any or all your data anytime from anywhere on any device. In addition, data input from a remote location or mobile device is immediate, allowing all team members to access the most current information at all times. Having access to immediate, accurate data at all times can help streamline operations and improve long-range projections.
With Dynamics 365, your company’s costs are calculated using a monthly subscription and based on the workforce you choose. There is no need to pay for employees who are not using the software. Additionally, you can scale the number of people subscribed up or down, as the needs of your company changes, be it seasonally or strategically.
Dynamics 365 is from Microsoft and as a Microsoft product it integrates easily with other Microsoft programs your company is probably already using. Further, when you incorporate Microsoft Office 365 into the ERP, employees no longer have to work outside the ERP software to access or use programs such as Microsoft Outlook, PowerPoint, or Word. All this seamless integration improves workforce productivity.
Through built-in predictive analytics with Microsoft Azure Machine Learning and Cortana Intelligence, Dynamics 365 ensures you have access to accurate and predictive business data as well as insights to help you decipher and develop actions to move your company forward.
Choosing Dynamics 365 as your ERP solution provides the support needed to help your business grow, expand, and evolve through greater accessibility, customizable scalability, and easy integration. Dynamics 365 is ideal for a small to mid-sized business with changing and growing needs. It is not for every company, but may be the ERP for your company.
