Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP: The Top 6 Ways Your Business Will Thrive


Microsoft has long been an industry leader when it comes to ERP solutions. From Microsoft Business Solutions in 2006 to Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP in 2020, the software has come a long way and Microsoft has always been at the forefront.

To put it simply, Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP is the world leader in ERP solutions today. Cloud-based, agile and secure, it’s one of the best additions you can make to your business.

But what exactly makes Dynamics 365 ERP stand out from the crowd? Read on to find out more… 

1. Dynamics 365 ERP offers integration with the Microsoft suite

Microsoft is the business software solutions leader for a reason. Quite simply, no other ERP software vendor has access to the in-house suite of applications – applications designed specifically to integrate smoothly and help business productivity and management – that Microsoft has. 

These integrations make Dynamics 365 ERP especially attractive. No more hopping from one platform to another, trying to hodge-podge integrations at the surface level. Dynamics 365 ERP is built to mesh with the rest of the Microsoft 365 suite, including:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • Outlook
  • Teams
  • SharePoint
  • And more.

Dynamics 365 ERP is built to be part of a holistic “business effectiveness” package, not to be a bolt-on to ad hoc systems.

2. Dynamics 365 ERP means access to tailored applications

That last point does not imply that Dynamics 365 ERP won’t work alongside systems outside the 365 ecosystem. Microsoft well knows that no two businesses are the same and that therefore no two ERP solutions ought to be the same either.

This is why Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP, as well as offering a variety of purpose-built applications off the shelf, is also flexible and can be tailored to help your business manage its daily operations and supply chain.

Through AppSource (Microsoft’s online marketplace), you’ll have access to apps that can be configured to work specifically for your business needs. Looking to handle payroll in a particular way? You can find it on AppSource. And if it’s only a partial match, a good Dynamics 365 developer will be able to get you the rest of the way.

With Dynamics 365, you’ll have everything you need to round out the functionality of your ERP solution.

3. Dynamics 365 ERP is fully mobile and accessible

The new business paradigm is one of mobility and remote operations: you and your staff need to be able to work across multiple locations and multiple devices. The old days of desktop-bound ERP no longer cut the mustard. Microsoft knows this better than anyone, which is why their Dynamics 365 ERP solution is fully mobile and accessible.

Whether you’re working from home, on the road or tapping away in an airport departure lounge, you’ll have access to Microsoft’s ERP suite.

Fully cloud-hosted, Microsoft Dynamics 365 prioritises accessibility like no other ERP application. You can even use it on your phone. The result is a solution that you can essentially carry in your pocket, accessible when you need it, how you need it.

4. An ERP for scalability

Dynamics 365 is based on a monthly subscription model, giving your business the ultimate flexibility to scale as required. No more outdated applications or lock-in contracts. Dynamics 365 ERP will scale up or down in line with your business growth.

This trait is particularly important when it comes to seasonal businesses that might ebb and flow throughout the year. It also gives rapidly-growing businesses the peace of mind to be able to scale at the rate that best fits their business model at the time.

At the end of the day, Dynamics 365 ERP will grow as your business does, taking the stress out of scalability.

5. Real-time ERP editing and analytics

Having access to real-time information is essential when making decisions on how to run your business. This is where Dynamics 365 ERP shines. As a cloud-based application, the information it serves is not just accurate but “real-time accurate”, ensuring the decisions you make are based on to-the-minute analytics.

No more miscalculations because a document is being edited by another user. Dynamics 365 ERP allows for real-time editing without lag. This ensures your business strategy is drawing on current information wherever the users are.

6. An ERP with better security

There’s a lot of debate when it comes to the security of cloud-based applications. But the truth is, cloud-based ERP solutions are far more secure than traditional, server-side ones. How? Because you’re essentially handing the security reins to Microsoft – one of the world’s leading cybersecurity authorities.

No more worrying about security upgrades or patches. Dynamics 365 ERP is covered by Microsoft’s world-renowned cybersecurity team, allowing you to get on with what you do best: run a business.
