Five reasons why your business needs Microsoft Dynamics 365

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a software solution that combines ERP & CRM applications into one accessible, seamless package. Released in 2016, the software has proved to be successful in achieving what it set out to do. The combination of the ERP & CRM apps into one package is particularly appealing, as such integration means that there is no longer a need to have several different applications to support different areas of the business. But Dynamics 365 is much more than a combined platform. It is a full digital solution that will underpin and support the future of your logging operation. This blog explores five reasons why Dynamics 365 should not be an ‘if I get it’ but an ‘WHEN I get it’.

Dynamics 365: 5 reasons why

When it comes to supporting your business into the future, you should take a closer look at how things run right now, and how they should run in a year or two’s time. Dynamics 365 provides enough business insights to help you form an accurate prediction of what the state of your logging operation will be in 24 months’ time, and beyond. The solution does this through a variety of means, which we analyze below:

Scalable simplicity

This may sound like an odd concept, but it’s one of the ideas behind Dynamics 365. What this means is that you should start using individual apps contained within the solution to suit your immediate business needs, and then slowly add more apps as time goes by until your whole operation is covered. Predefined KPIs are included to help you to better manage your outcomes so that you can work towards achieving your goals right out of the box. With these achievable objectives available for use right away, you can be sure that you’re not losing any time or energy when you’re getting started with Dynamics 365.

Financial flexibility

The Dynamics 365 financial business model is built on a Software-as-a-Service (Saas) modality, which means you pay either a monthly or yearly subscription fee. This allows for more flexibility in your own finances, as you need only buy what you need. Furthermore, subscriptions are purchased by role, which means you just need to subscribe staff for the work they do, saving money in the long run.

Intelligent insights

Remember those insights we spoke about? The solution has built-in such valuable assets like Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning, and many other such intelligent features to provide you with valuable business insights.

Cloud-powered security

Microsoft’s digital solution is fully integrated into the Cloud, with dedicated Cloud-powered security services that range from the service hosting platform to administrator access, and everything in between. This also means one less thing for your IT department to worry about.

Increased productivity

The seamless integration of CRM & ERP functionalities into one cohesive set of applications means that staff can achieve increased productivity, as they can avail of the system-provided intelligent insights while using the tools through which those insights can be practically applied.

 

Conclusion

The future of business is digital, there’s no doubt about that. Therefore, a digital solution will enable your own logging operation to join that future. Intelligent insights, security, flexibility, and so many other facets of the Dynamics 365 software will become the solid foundation that your logging operation needs to evolve and survive into the future. Both staff and the business in general will benefit from such solution from the very start, as 365’s in-built KPI and insights will become the launch pad for your own ideas.
