MS dynamics 365 includes both Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). However, it is important to note that Dynamics 365 contains 12+ business applications and add-ons that address every concern of the business regarding entire ERP and CRM functionalities. This creates a system that is a single source of truth for the entire company.
Businesses don’t need to license every application, but rather they can license the ones that bring value to the business operations. MS Dynamics 365 has been created with the end-user in mind which leads to limitless flexibility and system scalability.
Because of this approach, Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365) can easily fit into every type of business, no matter its size, maturity, and subsidiaries. However, it is important to understand what MS Dynamics truly consists of.
Below, we will be providing a detailed explanation regarding MS Dynamics 365 products such as ERP, CRM, D365 etc. to help you make an informed decision.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP solution focuses largely on the Manufacturing, Distribution and Accounting processes of a company, but they also provide a blank canvas to create custom processes and more! These customizations are will not only improve your business efficiency but will also provide a robust foundation for company growth.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP provides 2 Enterprise Resource Planning solutions based on the size and functionality of your business.
Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is best suited for large and enterprise-level businesses with a bigger employee workforce or for businesses that handle complex levels of supply chains/manufacturing operations, subsidiaries in multiple locations, transact in multiple currencies, and so on.
It is important to note that there are some considerations that must be looked upon before selecting MS Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations solutions. Microsoft licenses this solution with 2 different apps (applications)
Microsoft Dynamics GP is a powerful Microsoft ERP solution that is still being used by many businesses and corporations. However, many businesses that operate on Microsoft GP are currently considering transitioning fully into Dynamics 365 either Dynamics 365 Business Central OR Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
We understand that this transition can feel daunting, however, ERP Buddies can help your business with this complete transition.
Most ERPs still operate with complicated databases which makes their ERP implementation and maintenance a complex task. This leads to broken integrations which cause errors or in some instances they simply do not function at all.
However, D365 does not operate on this outdated model. Instead, MS Dynamics 365 and its range of applications operate on a “Common Data Service Model”. In simple terms, it ensures applications that are built and are being used by one company can be used by another without complications. Not only does this lower costs, but it also aids in improving company efficiency.
Microsoft Dynamics realizes the importance of running a business on the cloud, therefore all of Microsoft Dynamics 365 products can be operated seamlessly on the cloud. As Dynamics 365 also operates on the common data model, it becomes convenient to deploy customizations and optimizations within the system and its family of other applications that are in use.
However, it is important to note that an MS D365 cloud implementation decreases costs (as everything operates on a single system), increases system security (role-based access, 2-Factor Authentication, etc.), and provides a foundation for employees, allowing them to work from any time, anywhere.
Please note: Microsoft Dynamics does provide an on-premise version of its system and its applications, especially for companies that have to deal with special regulatory requirements or simply operate in huge warehouses that lack good internet connectivity, or simply if they want an on-premise solution.
