Dynamics 365 Reviews

“Dynamics 365 will connect to Office 365, Microsoft’s web-based email, spread sheet, word-processing, and presentation app. For instance, sales reps will be able to send customers quotes with up-to-date pricing and availability via email that draw directly on data in the ERP app.” Jay Greene, Wall Street Journal

“Few other players offer a common data model for CRM and ERP – and none bring in the Office productivity capabilities as Microsoft can. Dynamics 365 is a powerful competitive weapon against standalone ERP and CRM players. This is a big move by Microsoft to take advantage of the pieces it has purposefully built over the last several years – Office 365, Cortana, and Power BI.” Rebecca Wetterman, Nucleus Research

“Microsoft’s mission statement is to empower every person and every organization of the planet to achieve more. With the release of Microsoft Dynamics 365, you can clearly see the results of those efforts, with barriers being removed and integration made eliminating different data silos in the organization.” Michael Simmons, tom’sIT PRO

The cloud software enables companies to transform business processes faster based on accurate real time metrics and key performance indicators.  In other words, you can see and fix what is working, and what is not working, and innovate to stay ahead of the competition.

Dynamics AX (7) or Operations handles almost every business need from anywhere, at anytime.

Including these united core capabilities:

  • Financial management
  • Human capital management
  • Business intel & reporting
  • Production
  • Supply chain management
  • Procurement & sourcing
  • Project management & accounting
  • Sales & marketing
  • Life cycle services & help

Microsoft Azure

Any developer or IT professional can be productive with Azure. The integrated tools, pre-built templates and managed services make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, Web and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using skills you already have and technologies you already know. Microsoft is also the only vendor positioned as a Leader across Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Application Platform as a Service, and Cloud Storage Services for the second consecutive year.

Adobe Marketing Cloud

Adobe Marketing Cloud for Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition for Operations, gives customers a powerful, comprehensive marketing service for Microsoft’s next generation of intelligent business applications. The Adobe Marketing Cloud extends Microsoft’s CRM capabilities so that customers can create enticing, data-driven customer experiences across multiple channels.

Azure IoT

PowerBI

PowerBI is an analytics solution that is available to be used by your whole organization and gives you tools to transform, analyze, and visualize data. Share reports in seconds with your organization using Power BI on the web.

Cortana Intelligence Suite

Cortana manages big data with an advanced analytics suite to transform your business data into intelligent action.

To explain Cortana, let’s look at Cortana Business Intelligence from a high level view.  Cortana takes real-time data from your ERP system and combines it with unstructured data from the outside world to help your company make more informed decisions. This solution proactively predicts issues or provides guidance to help keep you out of trouble.

For example, think of how Cortana works with Windows 10.  The virtual assistant gives you notifications of when you need to leave early for an appointment to make it on time based on all the traffic and weather data that it is captured in the background.  Now apply that intelligence to your business, where Cortana has the ability to tell you about a problem in your supply chain, or alert you about the need to increase your inventory of cold drinks because of an upcoming heatwave to ensure that you have the right amount of stock on hand.  This predictive nature and intelligence of business applications is the future that we are delivering today with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations.

Office 365

Benefits of Office 365:

  • Asset checkout
  • Product showcase
  • Look for our apps to be added later like our warehouse app called Upicksales apps, and ProMRO.

PowerApps can be used on Android or IOS to use and share custom-built apps with your team and organization.

Custom built apps can be made by you and your team without writing a single line of code.  Connect to Microsoft PowerApps, then publish to you organization.

Flow

Flow allows you to create automated workflows between your favorite apps and services to get notifications, synchronize files, and collect data making you more productive.
