What is Microsoft Dynamics 365?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is an integrated suite of business applications that transform
customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP)
processes. It connects various aspects of business operations, from marketing and sales to
customer service, field service, finance, operations, and supply chain management. With
hundreds of new features and enhancements released each year, Dynamics 365 helps
organisations work smarter, save time, and collaborate seamlessly.

Understanding CRM and ERP

CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) are essential components for modern businesses.
  • CRM focuses on managing a company’s interactions with current and potential customers. It uses data analysis to improve business relationships, driving customer retention and sales growth. Key functions include contact management, sales management, agent productivity, and more.
  • ERP integrates various functions of a business into a unified system to streamline processes and information across the organisation. It covers areas such as finance, manufacturing, supply chain, human resources, and more. The goal of ERP is to improve efficiency, productivity, and profitability by providing a centralised source of accurate, real-time information.
