Once implemented, the right ERP systems can enhance productivity, encourage growth and increase ROI.

  1. Functionality
  2. Ease of Use
  3. Total Cost of Ownership
  4. Must be an Integrated Suite
  5. Ease and Speed of Implementation

Microsoft Dynamics AX 7

Previously code named Microsoft Dynamics AX 7, Microsoft has announced the next release of AX and simply named it: Microsoft Dynamics AX.

This latest release delivers a new, intelligent user experience, optimized to deliver value to organizations by enabling them to make smarter decisions faster. It brings proven business processes to the cloud, which means that the full set of capabilities of this solution will be available to customers from day one. Dynamics AX introduces continuous management services that enable the software to quickly adapt to an organization’s business needs. The new Dynamics AX also harnesses the power of the cloud, giving businesses and people global availability and scale to work anywhere, anytime so they can grow at their own pace and on their terms.

Why Choose Microsoft Dynamics AX vs SAP?

Improve Employee Productivity

Inflexible systems overwhelm, overload, and frustrate people – the employees, managers, customers, vendors, and partners who are working hard to make things happen and grow your business. The easier a software application is to use, the faster employees are able to adopt it and thereby enable the organization to reap the benefits the system provides. And when you connect your people to the right processes across your company with a fully integrated business management solution that is familiar and easy to use, you are setting the stage for increased productivity and efficiency.

Low Total Cost of Ownership

Independent research has demonstrated that, on the whole, Microsoft Dynamics AX offers a higher return on investment (ROI) and lower overall costs than other major competitive offerings. A recent survey by Panorama Consulting also found that Microsoft Dynamics had the highest percentage of users who realized between 81- and 100- percent of benefits compared to SAP and Oracle.

Scale with Your Business

Microsoft Dynamics AX is designed to empower your people to be more productive and your systems to last longer, with the ability to scale to accommodate growth while delivering the insight you need to respond quickly in an ever-changing world of business. Expand business opportunities, modify processes, and differentiate your business with comprehensive ERP software that provides unprecedented agility that makes it easy to adapt, grow, and change.

Flexible Deployment Options

Microsoft Dynamics AX offers deployment options that give you choice today and flexibility for the future. Companies can deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX on-premises or in a Cloud ERP model with a single ERP solution that can be implemented all at once, or in phases according to your needs.

Analyst Rankings

Analysts like Gartner, Nucleus Research, and Forrester Research consistently rank Microsoft Dynamics AX as a Leader in their respective ERP reports.

Making the decision to switch your company’s business management system is a process that requires research and foresight. Among global enterprise organizations with between $50 million and $1 billion in revenue, and those with $1 billion or more, Microsoft Dynamics AX is the preferred vendor for the next major ERP investment, compared to Oracle and SAP.
