Microsoft Dynamics 365 upgrade
Are you happy with Microsoft Dynamics AX, but only to a point? Are you starting to realize the obvious drawbacks of any thick client app? Are you gauging the happy path of transformation? If you’ve been wondering if switching to Microsoft Dynamics 365 FSCM is the right move, you’re in the right place. Let’s break it down and see what the upgrade means in practical terms. In short, do you want to stay on the ground or are you ready for the cloud?


Think about the software licensing costs of maintaining Microsoft Dynamics AX onsite, the time and money spent on updates and upgrades, involvement of IT engineers, servicing the hardware, and most of all, the implementation of customizations as well as the hours spent in training. On the other hand, the maintenance of Microsoft Dynamics 365 FSCM boils down to a subscription fee (this may mean moving costs from CapEx to OpEx) with core customizations, modern onboarding processes, and fast implementation. And this can reach millions of dollars in IT service saved every year.

What’s in it for you?

Nowadays, the cloud means better and automated UX translating into faster, leaner, and streamlined processes. More customer satisfaction and improved profitability are second to none indicators of a successful business. In fact, Microsoft Dynamics 365 FSCM wins in the percentage race not only here – consider also fewer days to close a month or fewer days of outstanding sales as well as more accurate inventory.

Agility without limits

Moving to the cloud means being more responsive to the ever-changing environment. Updates are getting more frequent, and deployment needs to follow fast in the footsteps, so that your organization can adapt in time. Not migrating may mean not being able to keep up with the current pace of change, and so, not being able to grow fast enough. Half of all companies using cloud ERP have live visibility of all their processes and data compared with just a quarter of all organizations using onsite models.

Across the board

Microsoft Dynamics 365 FSCM does all the work for you – from sales through operations to HR. Turn prospects into buyers and boost sales – keep a single view of your customers and follow market trends. Meet and exceed customer expectations, build loyalty, reduce operational costs, and automate your operations. Grow faster than ever before – increase efficiency while decreasing operational expenses. Empower your staff. Need more?
