Microsoft Dynamics 365 – Rethink What’s Possible

Microsoft Dynamics 365

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is expected to be center stage at AXUG Summit in two weeks in Tampa.

Since there is a lot of speculation right now on Dynamics 365, we decided to put some initial information together for those not attending Summit – or just wanting to learn more now. Here is a Microsoft Dynamics 365 brochure.

Merit Solutions will be in Booth #913 at Summit if you’re interested in learning more about Dynamics 365, AX upgrades, ongoing support, or mobile application initiatives.

And don’t forget to join our Merit Walk Off competition – where one Summit attendee will win a Caribbean vacation! Download our app now to register.

Mobile ERP Benefits

Walk down the street and its obvious, mobile device use is up. But just how much time do people spend on handheld devices nowadays may actually surprise you.
