Looking for new ERP software?

Microsoft Dynamics 365

If you’re planning on reviewing your current systems, it makes sense to consider Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Why, you may ask? As a Microsoft product you’ll benefit from your existing Microsoft investments when it comes to compatibility, familiarity and future-proofing. However, Microsoft Dynamics also delivers the best return on investment due to its functional fit and relatively short and straightforward approach to implementation.

When researching a new ERP solution one of the first questions you might ask is, “what does it cost?” However, a more logical approach might be “what will it cost my business not to implement a new ERP solution?” Here we’ve put a few questions together to help you think about how Dynamics could help drive your business.

What business areas are you looking to address?

When putting a business case together, you’ll need to think about what areas of the business will gain from using Microsoft Dynamics. Some of these could include:

  • Finance
  • Stock Management
  • Project and Resource Management
  • Warehouse Management
  • Customer Relationship and Service Management
  • Manufacturing, and so on.

How many users will you have?

Microsoft Dynamics is priced on the number of named users you require for full licence members, as well as limited use team member licences.

Are you likely to require development?

You probably have a good feel about how unique some of your processes are. It may be that you have an interface requirement or you’re in a niche industry.

Either way, we might be able to fit the gap with an existing add-on or app, or for your on-premise solution you may need some bespoke work carried out.

Microsoft Dynamics is ideal as it has the flexibility to grow with your business and have more apps or extensions added.

What level of internal resource is required?

Consider the amount of time and resource you can devote to the project to ensure buy-in and ongoing usage post-implementation. The more you can allocate from the word go (especially for training and testing) the better. If you can adopt a ‘train the trainer’ approach, then this will be more cost effective and increase the success of your project.

Implementations can range in price due to size and complexity and requirements of a project. However, if you’d like to find out more about how Microsoft Dynamics can help, please talk to the TVision team.
