With this year’s Spring release of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, we have already reached the two-year mark of the system’s initial availability to the market. Throughout its journey towards the age of digital transformation, D365 for Finance and Operations has made several improvements and adjustments in order to help organizations achieve even greater operational excellence and productivity.
Choosing the right moment to upgrade an ERP system is never easy. As one of our whitepapers explains, there are four main symptoms of aging ERP systems: End of vendor support; low levels of integration; mobility issues; and compliance issues.
There are a variety of reasons why companies delay an ERP implementation or upgrade. Fear of change. Budget concerns. Previous experiences with ERP projects. However, many organizations are actually paying more for inefficient processes and silos of data than they would for a new ERP system – without realizing the ROI that new ERP can provide.
The growing power and knowledge possessed by modern-day buyers has made quite a few established marketing methods obsolete. Companies are now increasingly failing to engage potential clients and connect with them through relevant information.
Some of the problems they are facing are serious: not enough leads, poor lead quality, no sales visibility, irrelevant nurturing and failure to track marketing ROI. An incredibly low 8% of B2B companies claim their sales and marketing teams don’t have aligned goals and agendas (CEB Global), leading to less conversions and insufficiently precise targeting.
Whether you’re planning on leading your organization as smoothly, precisely and time- and resource-effectively as possible or looking to broaden its impact on the market, Dynamics AX and Dynamics 365 are solutions you’ve probably come across. Both offer a number of planning tools capable of handling operations such as HR, manufacturing, finance, distribution and retail.
Most companies using Dynamics AX are considering an upgrade to Dynamics 365 since it offers a variety of new features, the most important of which are cloud-based functionality and highly improved scalability possibilities/features.
Not that long ago, computers were massive machines which required experts, entire rooms and buildings to operate. These days, almost everyone has one in their own pocket. The emergence of smartphones, tablets and similar devices has changed the game. These are not mere toys, but rather powerful and multifunctional tools capable of providing you with real-time information in the blink of an eye.
Organizations which prioritize efficiency and practicality in order to increase the quality of their products and services are now turning to mobility projects to realize the full potential of today’s markets. This blog focuses on the advantages of ERP mobility, using the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365 as an example.
